The city tours will sightsee numerous colourful Vesak zones, many Pandols and other vibrant activities scattered across the city. Tickets will be priced separately for upper and lower deck seating on the double deckers. Vesak tours will have snacks served on board with live commentaries in English by professional Guides to explain and educate those on board of the religious and cultural significance of the various events, activities and decorations done in honour of this significant national religious celebration. These Vesak tours on board the Colombo City Tour open deck double deckers have been a seasonal specialty eagerly looked forward to by the young and old alike, now for many years. It is also a wonderful time for foreign visitors to witness and experience a unique and colourful religious festival in Sri Lanka which brings together all communities in harmony, irrespective of their national and religious differences.
