A great service provided by Upali. We booked his services for 5 days, he was very polite helpful and efficient in all ways throughout our tour. Each day arrived on time for the scheduled itinerary. The vehicle was cleaned each day very comfortable ride.
As a party of two we found the service provided exceptional throughout. The information and guidance on each visit was first class. Over 5 days we were fortunate to get a glimpse of this wonderful country thanks to Upali. Our only regret was that we needed a few more days to appreciate the other areas of Sri Lanka. Will return and choose Upali as our guide/driver to explore other wonderful sights of Sri Lanka. If you want a service of quality contact Upali he will show you Sri Lanka in a traditional way.

We got the contact from friends.
We started our trip in Negombo. Our Guide Upalii picked up us at 8 am in the morning and he was very friendly.

He informed us what we can do, but we decided with him to do a flexible trip.
First stop Elephants opphanage, Spice garden, and than Kandy. City trip in Kandy, and Kandy Show.

My first mistake took place when we come back and he wait for us on the exit. My booking via internet was March instead of February. It was my fault. He called the hotel to ask for the way.
He told no problem and organizsed within 5 minutes another perfect hotel. Better rate than internet with B&B. After that we trusted him and he oranagized every day an accommodation for us. Nuvara Elia, Ella, Yalla. Very Nice Accommodations. We were very thankfull for the help.

He organized everything for us 2 safaris, little Adam Peak, Tee Plantage, Tee fabric, Kandy show, lunch, dinner etc.
He showed us how to eat in Sri Lanka ( with right hand) we eat local food ( rice & curry ).

The best thing what happend was, we informed him that we would like to do a cooking class. But we decided to do a massage on this day :-) . On day later in Yalla he informed us that his son in law is in yalla and we will visit him. He told us that his parents will wait and cook with us together. WOOOWWWW. That was a amazing happiness. What a wonderfull hospitality.

We are very happy to meet Upalli and hope to see him very soon again.

Best regards,
Reni & Daniel

I would like to recomend a serious and reliable driver in Sri Lanka. His name is Upali Priyankara and he has his own business Priyankaratours. We hired Upali as our driver and guide for one week over Christmas/New Year 2016/17. He picked us up at the airport and took us to Dambulla, Sigiria, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Haputale, Udawalawe National ParK and Tangalle. He also kindly came back and picked us up and drove us via Galle to Colombo and back to the airport.
It was a pleasure to have Upali as our driver. He was always on time, pleasant, had loads of patience, was good with kids and knows a lot about Sri Lakna and its history. He is good at recomending places to stop at and be spontaneous. He even brought fantastic mangos for us from his own tree. Above all he is very reliable and trustworthy and he worked hard to make sure we had a great trip. He also drives carfeully although many other drivers are not and is van his modern and comfortable (its a newer one than on the photo on his website).
You find Upali on the web at priyankaratours or email priyankaratours@yahoo.com

I chose Upali Priyankara tours for my travel in central and east of Sri-Lanka. Upali was a careful, supportive, tolerant and cheerful guide and driver. I will readily recommend him to any person wanting a reliable and helpful driver.

This summer Upali has been our guide and driver during our holidays in Sri Lanka for 2 weeks. Upali is really a great guy and we -family of 4 with 2 teenagers- can definitely recommend him as driver and guide. He did his utmost to give us the best tour possible and was also very flexible. With the itinerary we had in mind he recommended us the best places, routes and places to visit. He has a nice and luxurious van and has a safe driving style. During our tour he provided us with a lot of background information about the country, its history and also about nature. When we were in contact before we started the tour he even bought the observation saloon train tickets for us in advance! We also really enjoyed the Sri Lankan dinner at his home with his wife and kids. Upali is a great driver and a knowledgeable guide who also can help booking nice hotels (which we could not find online). Thanks Upali for the great time!

We did a 4-day tour with Upali Priyankara, starting from Matale, then on to Bandarawela, Haputale, Mirissa, and Galle. He was always on time and is a careful driver. He is also very well prepared, right down to spare umbrellas that we could borrow. I recommend him highly.

Upali is amazing driver and tour guide and I would like to recommend him if you want to do a tour in Srilanka. He is very kind and helpful and always on time if you request him.

My bad luck that I was for 1 day to do a tour.

My friends and I just went to Sri Lanka for nine days in December. We had Upali as our driver. He picked us up at the airport late at night and had to spend the night in his van. He is also very friendly. When our guide had to leave half way during the trip, Upali took over and showed us around Sri Lanka. He also gave us advice when we told him our plans. We took his advice and managed to catch sunrise at Horton Plains and saw the world's end. He also drives carefully and safely. The trip was an enjoyable one. I strongly recommend him if you would like to visit Sri Lanka.

I have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Sri Lanka with my wife and my two children. As soon as we arrived at Colombo airport, Mr. Upali Priyankara was there waiting for us. During the first 3 days of our visit took us on a journey to Kandy and the Thea region in a very good Nissan Van with a nice AC. Upali was always a very deligente driver , we always felt safe and moreover is an excellent guide that I highly recommend.

We used the services of Upali Priyankara for 5 days to travel around in Sri Lanka. He is highly recommended and trust worthy. His van is in excellent condition. He also has good knowledge of the local touristy places and can arrange for good guides in Polonurva and Anuradhapura.
