Booked through booking.com for our airport to hotel in Kalutara transfer and decided to book 3 other journeys as well.
Excellent communication beforehand with a clear and agreed price. Always arrived on time, drivers very friendly and cars clean and tidy.
We always felt very safe when travelling, some of the road from Ella to Kalutara is quite bendy and steep, but our driver showed great care but also made very good time.
Would throughly recommend.

The trip with our Private Driver (Wajira) was absolutely perfect! He was professional, friendly, funny and showed us many beautiful places we might not have discovered without him. Our wellbeing was his priority and we felt really safe and taken care of. Furthermore he was always punctual which is very valuable as we have had not so good experiences with punctuality the second week without him.

We organisation with Yenara was easy and professional! We highly recommend this organisation for your Sri Lanka discovery! We will book them again on our next trip.

I booked an airport transfer through booking.com, so was expecting to be collected and driven to my hotel. I wasn’t expecting to be engaged with friendly and interesting chat about the beautiful country we’re driving through, or to be bought breakfast - an immediate introduction to some of the food culture of Sri Lanka. I was so impressed I booked a short tour with Yenara, and was so impressed with the value, as well as the commitment to providing a great experience for tourists visiting the Pearl of India.
On my homeward transfer, Harsha provided more information, and also helped me to stop off and choose gifts for my family.
He then insisted on buying me a fruit smoothie (another great food experience) and even bought me a sample of the fruit to take home!
Yenara really do exceed expectations, and I can’t recommend them highly enough.

We booked our driver through booking.com the day before we arrived in Sri Lanka and our driver was waiting for us with a sign upon our arrival. The process was very straight forward. We had a 5 hour transfer to our first hotel which we though after 2 flights would have been tough going but the driver was very pleasant, stopped whenever we wanted and even stopped a couple of times to show us anything worth seeing. They’re very flexible and can stay in driver accommodation at the hotels so if you require them for anything you can just arrange this and they’re there waiting for you. We used them several times during our stay and travelled approximately 1000km with them. We traveled from Passikudah to Yala national park which took several hours. On the journey we asked if we could make a detour via Ella rock, made a phone call to the office and we’re quoted $25 extra for this (in the uk it honestly would have cost hundreds for the same thing). Our driver showed us all the best bits to see around there and then we continued on to Yala. He then stayed overnight in Yala to take us on to Hikkaduwah the following day. Nothing is too much to ask of them and I highly recommend using them. The cars are air conditioned and comfortable and therefore you can just relax or even get some sleep!

We used Yenara Tours for our transfers and we were positively surprised by their professionalism and efficiency. Before arriving in Sri Lanka we were contacted by the company to confirm our arrival transfer and were informed the contact details of our driver.
The driver was very friendly and drive very carefully. His vehicle was impeccable.
We will definitely use Yenara Tours again, when we return to Sri Lanka. Well done, Yenara Tours!

I used Yenara tours purely on a taxi/transfer basis - I found their drivers very reliable and the communication over WhatsApp was always speedy and very accommodating. Their pricing is very competitive from what I’ve observed. I used them for 3 journeys - 1 short journey and 2 longer journeys. I would highly recommend using this company.

My sister and I could not have asked for a better chauffeur than Lachmal and appreciated the total professionalism of Yenara Tours. The vehicle provided was always spotless and clean and always on time.
Lachmal accompanied us for one week on our first ever visit to Sri Lanka and we both feel he made a tremendous difference to our experience. He was knowledgeable, always had a smile, went out of his way to make things as comfortable as possible for us, organised tours and guides when we needed them, offered suggestions of what to do and showed us the real Sri Lanka. Nothing was too much trouble for him and we shared many interesting conversations and a good few laughs together.
Lachmal was extremely professional, an excellent driver, and we would recommend him as a chauffeur to anyone visiting Sri Lanka.
Yenara Tours were very reliable and we never felt worried during our time travelling around this beautiful country.

Requesting resort car transfers along with airport pick-ups and drop-offs with Yenara was a super smooth process. Whats App questions were promptly answered and quotations were delivered that were not only precise but also reflected what we considered to be excellent value. Cars were first-class in terms of condition and cleanliness. Drivers were prompt and highly efficient. Helpful and courteous. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this very good business.

Reliable and very responsive. We booked our airport transfer me with YENARA and ended up requesting the pick-up time relatively last minute (the night before the flight). The operator responded immediately on WhatsApp and advised us on the best time to be at the airport. Definitely recommend them!
