    Great experience having Emil with us
    Me and my girlfriend were looking for a driver from Anuradhapura to Sigiriya. The hotel owner recommended Emil. What started as a one-way trip turned to hiring Emil for 6 days. Emil is not only a safe and experienced driver, but also a proactive and skilled guide and wonderful person. He's a humble and loving guy, always honest and ready to help. His recommendations along the way were 100% true, so we saved our precious time and money. Our trip got even more effective thanks to him. We're grateful we had Emil by our side in Sri Lanka and we would recommend him to any traveller who wants to enjoy his Sri Lanka trip to the maximum.

    Great driver service!
    Emil is an excellent driver, a better person. He took us to visit Aukana Buddha and Dambulla caves to Sigiriya. The next day, for a really good price, he took us to the Polonnaruwa temples. He also helped us to negotiate the safari in Kaudulla Park. In every moment, he was very attentive, respectful and cheerful. Also, he knows a a lot about Sri Lanka history, cultural places and gave us very usefull information and recommendations. I recommend him 100%.

    A wonderful and comfy ride
    We booked a ride from Kandy to Ella with a stop at Pidurangala, so this was a custom route with waiting time. We loved this experience. It wasn’t expensive, totally wort every penny, the driver is super nice, comunicates in English very well and told us a lot of interesting stories. The car is super comfortable and I would book this expwrience again in a heartbeat.

    Family-Holiday with grand-parents, wife and 4 year old son (5 persons). We were on tour 17 days with our guide Emil. He picked us up at colombo airport, organized all accomodations, helped us with the trip coming accross the whole island, gave us tons of tips and even some nice.surprises. He is such a nice person. Helpful, polite, very respectful, a great person to talk and listen to. Very cautious and discreet. His english is very good and it is no problem to talk to him. Emil is the perfect guide! Highly recommended! Thank you, Emil!!!

    Very professional driver and guide.
    Our family had the great pleasure of meeting Emil in April after another transfer driver recommended him for our onward travels. Emil was friendly, courteous and informative, without ever being imposing. As another review mentions, Emil was very discreet and didn't want to get in the way of the family's experience, which was much appreciated. This, together with Emil's professional, safe driving and competitive pricing make Emil an ideal choice for any other families planning their Sri Lankan holiday. While we contacted Emil mainly for transfers, he recommended we visit Ritigala Forest Monestary when we were in the Haberana area and he could act as a guide. This proved to be one of the highlights of our trip. Our little Indiana Jones moment, surrounded by wildlife and no tourists at all! The Monkeys in the forest were especially popular with our children! Emil also drove us around the Anuradhapura Sacred City, with the air con being a godsend in one of the hottest April's on record and he helped us discover many more sites than we could have possibly visited under our own steam with tiring children. All in all, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Emil for transfers or as a guide. Thanks for all your help.

    We traveled with our 2 children 8 years old in july 2016. Emil was more than a chauffeur. He was a great help in shaping our trip. He's always been careful on the road. He respected our wishes with respect. He knew to be discreet in our family. He was able to find us an excellent accommodation in Haputale, which will remain the best memory. He was attentive with our children. He made us discover Sri Lanka and we are very grateful to him. If you have to go to Sri Lanka, call him! I recommend it! He is the BEST !

We had a wonderful trip together with Emil through Sri Lanka. He picked us up from the airport and took excellent care of us the whole trip. We left the planning of the tour to him to a large extent, but nevertheless he was always happy to take care of special wishes. The accommodations he chose for us were always very nice and clean and during the day we had a great program every day. We can recommend the trip with Emil one hundred percent!

We (myself, 5 sisters and various extended family members) all descended on Sri Lanka for a memorial service, a milestone birthday, and a vacation all rolled into one.

Between meeting up with arriving and departing family members, sightseeing, running errands, attending planned and impromptu gatherings, and changing residences as part of our tour, there was hardly a day of the trip where we weren't on the move, taking both short and long trips the entire time.

Throughout it all, Emil handled pre-planned logistics and spontaneous changes (both ones we requested, and ones he suggested we'd like) with equal ease, making it all look easy along the way.

By the end of the trip, it felt like Emil was a trusted member of the family, and he'll be one of the first to know the details when we plan our next return trip. :)

Thanks again, Emil!
