My friend and I visited Sri Lanka for 6 days. Given our limited time and the fact that we are two younger female travelers, we felt it was safer and more time efficient to hire a driver.
We contacted Sri Lanka Wide Tours via email, with a list of places we'd like to go. Darshana and Ravi put together a logical itinerary with our list of ideas and a few additional sights along the way that were pleasant additions for us. They were incredibly responsive and payment was easy via Western Union.
We ended up with Shiran as the driver for our trip and could not have been happier with him. He was incredibly friendly and a great, safe driver on those terrifying Sri Lankan roads. He always ensured his car was clean and well-maintained, despite us tracking lots of mud into his car from our multiple hikes in the rain (sorry Shiran!) and always had water available. He was also always on time and arranged our safaris at Kadulla and Udawalawe. And, he was flexible when we dropped a part of our itinerary to go on another safari.
We had a great tour and got to see so much more in 6 days than if we had had to figure out our own route and take alternative transit. Would recommend this company to anyone.
