Yes, Lagoon & Village Cycling Tour is the best tour for your children’s. If your children’s are at least 10 years old, competent cyclists, and comfortable with some riding alongside traffic, you can do Galle Fort & City Cycling. Generally children younger than 10 would not be suitable on group tours, and management or the tour guide will make the final decision on if the child can ride with the group. Adults are responsible for children and their safety at all times. To be sure that your young child can do a Galle Fort & City bike tour, you should book a private tour for your family (all ages accepted on private tours and we have a range of bikes to suit).
Yes, children under the age of 12 years get half prices. Children 0-3 years old baby seat is free.
We will never cancel a tour due to rain! The weather in Galle is unpredictable and rain can occur at any time, especially during the rainy season of July-September. Rain is also a very localized phenomenon, happening in small pockets in places while being completely dry only a few kilometers away. In our vast experience doing the tours, we know that heavy rains rarely last more than 20 minutes and our guides know very well where to take our customers for cover during the deluge. In light rain, we provide ponchos to our customers and cycle on. Often times, the rain can offer a refreshing break from the tropical heat.

We are very sorry when this happens. It does occasionally happen and it's something out of our control. It may be caused by cycling through some glass for example. You have to walk the bike back to us or bring it on a taxi (Tuk tuk can take bikes). We repair the puncture free of charge/or exchange you for another bike. You must not ride on a flat tire- this damages the wheel. If you ride on a flat tire, you may have to pay for a wheel repair or a new wheel.
Though tips are not mandatory, they very much are appreciated. If you don’t have a good time, please don’t tip. It should be an enjoyable experience. Has a guide tried everything possible to make your tour happy then you can give tip you like.
