We found the contact of Sri Lankan Personal Drivers while searching for a cab driver on the internet. We were a group of two families with two kids, they suggested us a good price for a van based our 7 day itinerary. Upon arrival in Colombo, we were greeted by Mr. Sangeeth (our driver for the trip). He is very friendly, knowledgeable and was flexible to understand our requests. Mr. Sangeeth was not only our driver, but he turned out to be our travel guide suggesting stopovers on our road journey, good photo spots, restaurants, and even helped us with booking a place in Udawalawe when our previously booked hotel cancelled the booking last minute. Mr. Sangeeth also accompanied me on the hike to the Little Adam's Peak in Ella when he saw that I was the only one interested in the hike. The drive through the country was very enjoyable in his company. We will definitely recommend Sri Lankan Personal Drivers and Mr.Sangeeth for travelling through Sri Lanka. We will recommend to contact them for deciding on your final itinerary too since they give very good suggestions. Thanks Mr.Sangeeth for the wonderful experience!

My wife and I had a 2 week trip to Sri Lanka with Manjula being our primary driver.

The car was very clean and comfortable with excellent air-conditioning (a must for the hot and humid climate).

Manjula was a very skilled and friendly driver and he recommended a couple of places to eat at and a couple of other sites of interest which were highlights of our trip.

We had two other drivers along the journey and their cars were also very comfortable and well kept.

Can you find a cheaper service once you are in Srilanka - yes.

Is the convenience tax worth paying - HELL YES!

Highly recommend this service!

P.s. a tip would be to send your itinerary through to the service with the following information included (otherwise you may have done back and forwards emails):

Which hotel/airport you are being picked up from
What time you need to leave
Where you are headed to
Do this for every day that you require their service and they will work out the travel times and costs.

Our party of five were collected by Ansar Doray at our villa in Ahangama. We had booked an 8 day tour of cultural and nature sites. Ansar drove a very comfortable and clean seven seater, air-conditioned vehicle. We visited twelve cultural sites and a national park with elephants (which was excellent, lots of elephants). We learned a vast amount about Buddhism and the national cuisine at a cookery class. Ansar is extremely knowledgeable and whatever we asked of him, he was always happy to oblige. He had knowledge of things off the beaten track, which was a fabulous bonus. We completely trusted his judgement. Ansar actually became a friend, due to his very happy disposition, helpfulness and natural courtesy. He even arranged a surprise birthday party a restaurant, for one of our group, complete with a birthday cake. It was very sweet of him to do this. Ansar also had a wealth of knowledge for hotels and villas in which to stay. We had such a great time, and laughed alot throughout our time with him. He is also a very careful driver and felt safe at all times. I will have no hesitation in recommending the company to family and friends. If you want a stress free visit to this beautiful country and it's friendly people, then look no further. And if you're worried about the cost for a driver and guide, then you'll be pleasantly surprised at how affordable it is.
If you want a hassle free visit SL, then check these guys out. 10/10

If we could rate this company higher we would! The whole experience was so professional from booking to 2 week driving tour. Mr Jaya was very responsive and his advice regarding itinerary exactly what we needed. When we landed in Colombo, we were greeted by the wonderful Sangeeth and biggest friendliest smile. We couldn’t have asked for a better companion on our 14 day tour. The vehicle was huge, super comfortable and spotless. Sangeeth ensured we didn’t miss a single sight along the way and we honestly saw so much more than any large tour operator organised itinerary had on offer at unbelievably good value. Sangeeth even helped us when we had to deal with a last minute hotel cancellation. Nothing was too much trouble and he checked in with us constantly. It’s hard to put into words how amazing the service was and how eternally grateful we will be to Sangeeth for making our holiday so special and one that we will never forget.

I recommend SLPD to anyone wishing to experience Sri Lanka for the first time.
Starting with the reservation site, they respond to all my emails and queries and assist with our custom itinerary.
The car is a new Air conditioned Honda car, which was supplied with water bottles daily.
Our driver Danuka was amazing. He goes out of his way to show us everything we want to see and also extra things we wouldn’t have known about without him.
He speaks good English, and answered all our questions truthfully. He translated for us, and made our trip easier.
He remembered all the types of fruits we wished to try, and would stop mid trip at fruit stalls to help us try them. He even bought us some fruits we couldn’t find.
He helped us get tickets to the Ella train, which seemed difficult to do on our own, especially when they had a power cut and couldn’t print out our tickets.
There are so many things to say. Thank you Danuka for everything. You gave an amazing impression of Sri Lanka and Sri Lankan people.

Our group (two couples) approached Lankan Personal Drivers in early March ‘22 to use their service in late March & early April. We received a response back immediately and found them extremely professional to deal with it. They were very helpful in working with us around our itinerary and made suggestions that we hadn’t thought of which was brilliant. 

On the first day of our trip, our wonderful driver Sangeeth met us at our hotel and made us feel so welcome. We requested a minivan for the trip and the vehicle was extremely well maintained and cleaned every day. Our trip took us from Colombo down to Mirissa, then to Ella , Nuwara Eliya, Adam’s Peak, Kandy, Habarana with drop off in Negombo. Throughout it all, Sangeeth made us feel like family. Nothing was too much to ask and everything we could ask of him was met with a laugh and a smile and reassurance. His knowledge, passion and love of Sri Lanka is infectious and we are left leaving Sri Lanka with so much joy and also so much sadness that we have to say goodbye! 

Our trip would not have been the same without Sangeeth, Mr. Jaya and all of Lankan Personal Drivers who really went above and beyond to provide an excellent service especially in these trying times for Sri Lanka, an unbelievably beautiful country and one that we hope to return to as soon as we can. We wholeheartedly recommend this company and can promise that you will not regret it. Looking forward to our next trip!

We just got back from a 10day tour of Sri Lanka with SLPD, guided/driven around by Manjula. He was a careful and respectful driver, always on time and attuned to our needs. He knew the best, most authentic restaurants in every town we passed, and would suggest activities and sights along the way, which we had not known about. My kids really took to him, he was playful and caring with them in the most natural way. Every step of the way it really felt like he was doing everything to make sure we have a great trip and peace of mind.

Overall the company provided fantastic service at great value communication was flawless and prompt (despite difference in time zones and the fact that we were booking everything very last minute!) It was recommended to me by a friend who used to live in Sri Lanka, and I am definitely passing the recommendation to anyone who may want to visit this amazing island.

I used this company for driving and guide services over a 2 week period during my Sri Lankan Holiday. My driver was Mr. Sangeeth.
I t was my pleasure to enjoy Mr. Sangeeth's service. He was both friendly and professional throughout our association. Sangeeth is always on time and the vehicle is always well maintained , clean and with full fuel .
Sangeeth provided us with valuable and interesting information concerning Sri Lanka and its culture along with assistance in understanding the natural environment here. We would have missed many interesting things without his knowledge. Sangeeth also made numerous activity arrangements for us and ensured that we did not get charged high prices for the service of others. He did an outstanding job in making sure that our trip was enjoyable and his English language skills are quite good. Sangeeth is a credit to the Lankan Personal Driver Company and I would recommend him and the company to all other tourists who are thinking of a Sri Lankan Holiday

Sincerely,

We had Eric as our driver and he made the trip so incredible. He couldn’t have been any more helpful, spoke fantastic English and was extremely caring for our needs.

We felt incredibly safe as soon as we initially met Eric at the airport and he did everything to ensure we had the best trip to Sri Lanka. Eric was very flexible with our plans as well as being understanding where we had to make last minute changes.

Not only did Eric take us to wherever we wanted to go, he also gave us amazing information on the history of our various stops.

I would fully recommend Sri Lankan Personal drivers to anyone visiting the country as it allows you to make the most of your time there as well as see some of the hidden gems this amazing country has to offer.

Eric is quite simply the best driver in the world and myself and my two friends couldn’t thank him enough for his wonderful service!
