We were introduced by our travel agent to Dudley and we would highly recommend him for his excellent service, proactive involvement, planning and guidance in taking us around Colombo, Galle and Hikkaduwa. He came to meet us with a very clean, big car for our family of 4 adults. The car was tip top everyday and he took us to... More

My spouse and myself recently came back from 2 weeks in amazing Sri Lanka. The country is gorgeous but what makes it unforgettable is the people you will meet. Our driver Nalinda (nalindakalpa@gmail.com) took a lot of time to explain us his culture, his habits, his way of living, etc. Being a driver more than 6 years enables him to... More

We recently stayed at the Fortress Hotel and by chance took a tuk tuk outside the hotel driven by Gemunu. He then arranged a fantastic tour to Yala National Park at prices well below both the hotel and our tour company. The service was superb and so friendly. We became friends and even visited his home for tea with his... More

We were a family of 7 traveling through Sri Lanka for 3 weeks (Feb 2015) and Sudath was incredibly accommodating, knew the island well and gave us the right advice for our family to make it a memorable holiday. Friendly service and easy to be around, I can't recommend Sudath enough for transport services. His website: sulankatours@sltnet.lk
