We’ve recently spent 10 wonderful days with the best guide and driver in Sri Lanka, WASANTHA SILVA ( 0094 716 054 054, 0094 701 400 600, Email- wasanthasilva31@yahoo.com). Wasantha is a very knowledgeable, kind and professional man and I would recommend him to anyone looking to have an adventurous and memorable stay in Sri Lanka. We started our trip in Negombo, where Wasantha picked us up - we were travelling with a 3 year old and he made sure our child is happy and comfortable throughout the journey. We then headed to Sigiriya for Lion’s Rock and village tour, then to Minneriya National Park for an elephant safari suggested by Wasantha - it was truly beautiful and our child loved it. From there we went to Kandy where Wasantha organised our time and sightseeing. After 2 nights in Kandy, we went to Ella - on the way visiting tea factory and Nuwariya Elle - Wasantha was kind enough to find us alternative accommodation last minute and we spent lovely 2 days in Ella in a hotel with a stunning view for the mountains (beautiful sunrise) and excellent staff. we then headed further south to Tissaharama where Wasantha recommended staying at a lovely, newly refurbished guesthouse right next to the lakes and buffalos. Our son enjoyed riding a scooter and seeing the buffalos from close, and we went on a nice local bike tour. The next day we spent at Yala National Park and were lucky enough to spot a leopard! For the final 4 nights, we decided to stay at a beautiful and peaceful resort in Tangalle, right by the beach, while enjoying fresh local seafood and long walks by the beach, which is stunning. Wasantha arranged a pick up for us to take us back to Negombo for our flight and on the way we managed to stop in Galle for some sightseeing and food. He also arranged an accommodation for our last night, very close to the airport and a pickup to the airport the next day. Wasantha and his family, plus all his friends that we met on the way were very kind and welcoming and we were very happy with the service provided by Wasantha. We hope to return to the beautiful island of Sri Lanka one day and meet Wasantha again!

We’ve just come back from Sri Lanka, spending 16 wonderful days enjoying the amazing life and sights that this beautiful island has to offer. It truly is a gem of a place, super friendly, a wide variety of fresh food and nice strong spices! The beaches were like paradise with crashing blue waves, swimming alongside turtles and stilt fishermen to boot. The lush rolling green hills and waterfalls added to the charm. We booked through Stubborn Mule travel who were amazing throughout the whole process and gave us an itinerary to remember. The trip was made special by one amazing man who was our driver, come guide, almost local celebrity, guru of nature, history, sport and the kindest most considerate person we have been fortunate enough to meet. If you head to Sri Lanka, make sure he is your man, you will be so impressed by his professionalism and kindness. His details are below and I said we would mention him specifically as we don’t want him or you to miss out on the opportunity to travel across the island together WASANTHA SILVA 0094 716 054 054 0094 701 400 600 wasanthasilva31@yahoo.com Best places for us… Unawatuna beach, Ella (98 acres resort! Wow), Elephant transit visit, Sigiriya rock, keep safari, feeding monkeys…. The spicy food… I could keep going We will DEFINITELY be heading back for more Wasantha action, next time Yala and the East coast

A wonderful way of seeing Sri Lanka you get there in the Dark and watch the Ballon been inflated and take off as the sun risers the Pilot Justin was a very experienced pilot and very knowledgeable about the local area and wildlife. The Sri Lankan staff were absolutely superb and very professional ensuring a very smooth take off and landing.A wonderful experience we felt extremely safe all finished off with a glass of Fizz at the end

I did 3 times trip around Sri Lanka. Each time 2-3 days visiting Candy, Sigiria, Nuara Elia, safari etc. Each time I used service from Ramset Warnakula (warnakula35@gmail.com, +94714446823, +94703106840). Ramset is reliable person, he arranged driver with van for our trips. Drivers was kind an supportive. He also orginised safari for us. May be you may do it chiper directly. However doing through Ramset save your time and nervous. He also may arrange hotels reservation. Please check booking.com etc and tell him the property and price. You may found reasonable deal for both sides benefits.
