About this tour

Sri Lanka is in the midst of a brutal crisis that’s so bad, it’s been called the Asian Argentina. It’s not just food and fuel that are in short supply – power outages are also crippling businesses, and hospitals are running out of medicine. It’s like a trifecta of disaster! But that’s not all – this crisis is also a cautionary tale about the dangers of running up public debt and spending too much. It’s a reminder that sometimes, things can go from bad to worse in a hurry if we’re not careful. This interactive storytelling walk is meant to have the flow and information-heavy experience of a documentary. It takes us into a comprehensive analysis, providing surprising answers. It highlights the social and political elements of Sri Lanka, from the creation of the modern state to the current times. We’ll address both historical and current events from a balanced & non-biased point of view to help you determine your views of this land for yourself. The experience is aimed at people with a genuine interest in politics and those keen to learn more about the situation in Sri Lanka by conducting some first-hand research. Please feel free to contact me for a date and hour that works best for you.

This is quite easily the best experience I have ever done. Chami is an exceptional guide who knows the politics, economics, and history of the country inside out. She is passionate about her country and it reflects in the conversation. Always happy to answer questions and keep you engaged through the wealth of information that she has. A must for anyone even remotely interested in learning about this great country.

We had a fabulous afternoon with Chami who was so informative and friendly. This is not a tour for "sights" this is a tour about learning and getting to know a country

I cannot recommend this tour enough. Chami is as passionate as she is a brilliant tour guide. I learned so much in the time of the tour and only wish I had more time in Sri Lanka to understand more. We went to several sites, each striking in their political, economic, and social history. I'm so grateful to have found this and hope one day to read Chami's memoir on growing up in such an important time in Sri Lanka 's modern history.
