Best Experience with Dayan!!
Mar 2020 • Couples
I cannot recommend Dayan enough to rent a tuk tuk from for your holiday in Sri Lanka!! Having our own tuk tuk for 2 weeks was the most amazing experience ever.

After our original booking with “Tuk tuk Sri Lanka” fell through, we found Ceylontusker on recommendation from a friend and Dayan organised our Sri Lankan licenses within 7 hours!! Usually it takes 2 business days to get licenses but Dayan came to our rescue and got them turned around whilst we were on the flight to Sri Lanka.

We received a great driving lesson from one of Dayan’s team when we arrived, and he was extremely patient in getting us up to speed with how to drive the tuk tuk.

Our tuk tuk was in great condition, and we drove over 1000km in it over two weeks. We accidentally broke the brake oil bottle whilst driving, but it was an easy fix and Dayan offers to cover the costs when you keep receipts!

He is amazingly responsive, offers to speak to the police for you if you are ever pulled over, or to message him if you need to get any repairs done.

Unfortunately the timing of our trip meant that we had to fly home a week early due to coronavirus, and Dayan was more than happy to sort out our tuk tuk return a week before our original departure date.

Honestly I can not recommend the experience of renting a tuk tuk in Sri Lanka enough, and if you decide to do it, then there is no one better than Dayan!

Amazing experience, amazing service, and a really good price!

Thank you Dayan ☺️

Tuktuk and other things
Mar 2020 • Couples
We rent a tuktuk for 14 days, it was amazing!
The hospitality and kindness from Dayan and his cousins were absolutely perfect.

Because of the Corona Virus we had to stay longer in Sri Lanka and I contacted Dayan for a taxi from Negombo to Weligama, he sent his Cousin to bring us for a good price.

Dayan will be there to help you 24/7, thank you!

An amazing way to see Sri Lanka
Jan 2020
Ceylon Tusker provided an easy and enjoyable way to see Sri Lanka. They sorted all the paperwork and provided lessons so all you had to worry about was where you were going, The price was very competitive compared with other providers and Mr Dayan and his team gave exceptional service and assistance.

Tuktuk rental was amazing!
Feb 2020 • Couples
We rented a Tuktuk with Dayan and it was absolutely amazing! Renting a Tuktuk for you holidays in Sri Lanka is more expensive than taking a Tuktuk with a driver for every ride, but, for us, it was definitely worth the money. We loved driving our own Tuktuk and have that experience. It is easy to do, and only on the roads around Kandy it was full focus on the road and other traffic, the other roads were very easy (we haven't done any driving in Colombo). The service was great, quick answers, professional contract with good conditions, good driving lesson and a great Tuktuk, it took us all the way up the hills and back :)

The best way to see Sri Lanka!
Feb 2020 • Couples
My girlfriend friend and I had the most amazing experience and it was all thanks to Dayan and his tuk tuk! We went on a 3 week road trip all over the country and loved every second of it. Thanks to the onsite driving lesson we felt comfortable from day one. The price was also very good - only $12/day! Trust me when I say use Dayan and his tuk tuks, you won't regret it!

Amazing time!
Feb 2020 • Couples
We have rented a tuktuk by Dayan for 3 weeks and loved it so much! His service is amazing and you can call him anytime you need help. The staff is really friendly as well! The first day we got a tuktuk driving lesson, as it is different from driving a car. They explained everything pretty good and gave us a safe feeling. We definitely recommend renting a tuktuk to explore the country and Dayan is an amazing host. When we come back to Sri Lanka, we will rent a tuktuk from him again. Just do it, you will not regret it :)

Great experience, amazing service and good price!
Jan 2020 • Couples
We think hiring a Tuk Tuk in Sri Lanka is a must do experience! You get to experience the country from a difference point of view, not to mention the flexibility you have to stop wherever you want and whenever you want (e.g. Small markets, tempels, waterfalls or coffee spots).

The owner of this Tuk Tuk rental Dayan Chinthaka (just send him a WhatsApp via +94776685331) offered us great services and a really good Tuk Tuk for a bargain (we double checked prices elsewhere and indeed, he is below market average). Make sure to contact Dayan a few weeks again so he can help you get the (required) local drives (you need an international drivers license, with which he can issue the local license). Before driving off with the Tuk Tuk you get a +/- 1.5 hour driving lesson (in Negombo, transfer form airport can be provided by Dayan), which helps in getting comfortable with the Tuk Tuk, and the Sri lankan roads / traffic.

We used the Tuk Tuk throughout Sri Lanka (Negombo > Sigiriya > Kandy > Ella > Udawalawa > Dikwella > Mirissa > Hikkaduwa > Negombo), but wanted to experience the train trip from Kandy to Ella (must see), so Dayan arranged a driver to pick up our Tuk Tuk at the kandy train station and wait for us at the Ella train station (great!).

Overall: lots of fun, get in contact with Dayan!
