CC Travel arranged our trip with Different Discovery as agent, and everything has worked without any problems.

In the airport we was picked up by Madu, and Madu took us first to Negombo, where we stayed a couple of days to get used to the sun ☀️ and heat.

Then Madu came and picked us up, and we have been around this lovely country in the safe hands of Madu.

Madu has not only been showing us things that was planned, but on our trip around Sri Lanka he has managed to find a lot of other things of interest and we have tried a lot of the lovely fresh fruit they grow in Sri Lanka. Madu has only been kind to give us tips on where to eat good and cheap.

Madu has been good at telling us about politics, holidays, demographics, wildlife, plants, you ask, Madu knows 🙂

Madu has also showing real interest in us, as a family, and been kind to tell us about his family.

We would highly recommend CC Travel, Different Discovery and especially Madu to anyone who is planning to visit beautiful Sri Lanka

Best regards

Today we said goodbye to Our driver Athula after spending 9 days together around Sri Lanka.

From the very beginning we was met by a happy and kind man who was determined to give us the most and best experiences Sri Lanka had to offer. He was exited and invested to show us his beautiful country and it was clear that he was passionate about the job and took it very seriously.
He was good at taking initiative and was an amazing planner. He also have alot of friends so he provided us special offers and Benefits with good pricing.

Athula was funny, chatty, Caring and good at Sharing knowledge about sri Lanka and it’s history. He is also an exellent driver.

Athula always wore a mask and sanitized our hands, feet and the car at every chance he Got! The car was washed and cleaned every day. Athula was also very punctual and even when we where 5-10 minutes to early he was there Before us! Always driving the car up to us and open the Doors for us like a true gentleman.

We felt very safe in his Company and enjoyed it very much. It was definitely sad to say goodbye to our new friend.

Athula also is a damn good photographer and a little selfie-King. He made sure that we would have alot of pictures of us so we can look back at all the experieces.

We Only have good things to say about Athula, and when we return to sri Lanka we hope Athula still Works for different discovery, because we could not Wish for a better driver and compagnion than him.

We would definitely recommand Diffent discovery and especially Athula to others. We Can’t imagine a better chauffeur than Athula.

Again, thank you so much Athula for This wonderfull vacation. We miss you Already!

Kind regards Josephine and Katja!

We went on a two week travel through some of Sri Lanka arranged by C&C travel. We went from south east in Unawatuna to Tissamaharama, Ella, Kandy, Sigiriya and finished our trip in Trincomalee. Throughout we were pleased to have the excellent driver Ranjan Michael from Different Discovery. With Ranjan Michael driving and guiding you feel safe and are sure to see and experience all the best things Sri Lanka has to offer. He is very kind and has a good sense of humor. He has many relevant suggestions for activities and is spontaneous and quick to pull over for us to get the best pictures and viewpoints. He made sure we experienced several different tasteful fruits. We would highly recommend Ranjan Michael as driver and guide in Sri Lanka.

We had the most fantastic driver, Nilusha (Nilu), who gave us a wonderfull exspirience during the 11 days we had together. He was an inspiration at any stop we made. He allways knew someone who could give us a better price on everything, no matter where me and my wife decided to stop in the beautiful country!🏆
One thing is shure; next time we go to Sri Lanka, we will fight hard to get "Nilu" as a driver again!
His is a perfect driver and a "happiness guide" everybody will love! 🙏

Mr Ananda was our guide and driver in our wonderful holiday in Sri Lanka. He’s a very safety driver, and he is very helpful and good at explaining culture, religion, Nature, food, traditions etc.
He is very kind and has a good sense of humour. He’s very respectful about our privacy and wishes for the day. He’s has many local contacts and he has relevant suggestions for activities, if needed.
On our drive he was spontaneous, and stopped the car for good places and tasteful fruits.

We highly recommend Ananda as your guide and driver.

We went on a three week trip in Sri Lanka and had a great time. With Athula behind the steering wheel, we felt very safe and comfortable, and he was always good at finding interesting activities, solving the few obstacles we encountered and providing a great atmosphere with his good mood. A high recommendation from here!

Went on a trip around the southern part of the country, bought through the danish agency C&C, and handled by Different Discovery.

The trip was very well planned.

For ten days our driver, Sampath, gave us one good experience after another. Sampath has a very pleasant demeanor, and even though we always felt relaxed, Sampath was very efficient.

Sampath is a knowing person, and could answer all our questions on a large number of subjects; flora, fauna, religion, history and many more.

We always felt safe in his company, when we were going through the jungle, hiking up mountains or climbing up a riverbed to bathe in a waterfall.

We had a wonderful time in Sri Lanka with our driver and guide Ushan Eranga. He gave us many useful tips on what to see and information during our tour, and we felt very safe with him behind the wheel. He was so patient with our kids, when they got bored of looking at temples and statues and I'm sure they are going to miss him.

We have just had 10 fabulous days with Nilu from Different Discovery Tours. He was our private driver on Sri Lanka and showed us so many wonderful places and sites.

Nilu is the driver to ask for if you wish to be accompanied by a warm, outgoing and friendly person with a high service level. From our perspective he is much more than just a driver - more like a tour guide (or happiness guide as he says :)) and he quickly became our friend. It meant a lot to him that we had a nice time and he always went that extra mile to make our experiences extraordinary.

The trip was arranged by C&C Travel and when we asked for a great and outgoing driver, the agency picked Nilu for us. Fantastic. I think you can also get in contact with Nilu and Different Discovery Tour if you are travelling independently or with another agency. Either way you MUST ask for Nilu as your driver. He will make sure that your experiences are next level. He is amazing.

Don’t think - just do it ;-)
