Just returned from a fabulous 2 week honeymoon in Sri Lanka and on recommendation we contacted Dimuthu with a draft itinerary we had pulled together and within hours he came back to us with some suggestions, recommendations and a guide on price for the 2 week trip.
We couldn't recommend having a driver more and as some of the reviews say, he wasn't just our driver, but a great tour guide and made the holiday, travel and decisions around where to eat etc so easy, getting a great experience of Sri Lankan life, through food and history. Particularly in a post covid world where not everywhere was open, Dimuthu would phone ahead and make sure things were open, whether we needed to book and gave us local knowledge that was so helpful when exploring on our own.
We visited all the main attractions from Sigiriya rock, to Kandy, Ella, stopping at a number of waterfalls enroute, visited beautiful temples, wood carving, spice garden, gem factory and nothing was too much trouble, if we wanted to build something into the plan he made it happen.
We cant recommend enough! Thank you Dimuthu!

We had a fantastic time in Sri Lanka, and big thanks to Dimitu who took good care of us, a great guy and guide. If we hadn't used his services we would never have seen so much. I can strongly recommend him and his company if you want an unforgettable vacation in this beautiful country.

From the moment Dimuthu greeted us at the airport with a welcoming garland and a big Sri Lankan smile he made us feel totally relaxed, he was in control of the prearranged itinerary, so all we had to do was sit back and enjoy the scenery as he drove us from place to place, answering ALL our questions and sharing his knowledge of his beautiful country. There were a couple of deviations from the planned route - like when the train we took from Ella to Nuwera Eliya broke down. Dimuthu, who had gone ahead in his car saved the day; he came back and picked us up from the middle of nowhere and took us off on an impromptu tour of the area we found ourselves in. We had chosen some of our accommodations and he arranged some - at every check in he did a discreet rece to ensure it was up to scratch - on one occasion he was, rightly, unhappy with the place and whisked us away to another hotel. This would not have been possible without local knowledge, which he has in abundance. He told us about the history, the different religions, cultures, foods etc, which you wouldn’t get self driving, and driving there is not something I would recommend, particularly if you want a stressless holiday. During our 3 weeks travelling with him nothing was ever too much trouble and he was 100% professional from beginning to end. We could not recommend Dimuthu highly enough - he is thoughtful, knowledgeable, and has a great sense of humour.
Thank you Dimuthu for making our time in Sri Lanka the most relaxed, enjoyable and memorable experience possible.

The past two weeks travelling Sri Lanka with my family was just amazing, thanks to our wonderful guide Dimuthu.

Dimuthu took us to amazing sites, activities, places to eat and great accommodation (which he was often able to book for cheaper than booking.com). He was able to answer every question we had and shared so much about the history and culture of the country with us.

We really enjoyed his great sense of humour and always had a good laugh with him.

There is no doubt Dimuthu is very passionate and experienced in what he does.

We enjoyed a lovely holiday in Sri Lanka in July 2019. Dimuthu has been an excellent driver and guide, from the warm welcome at the airport until the moment we had to return home.

We arranged our own trip and Dimuthu added some valuable suggestions on the way. He’s also open to feedback when we indicated what type of activities or restaurants we like or don’t like.

Also our 2 boys enjoyed the company of Dimuthu and the small gift at the end of our trip has received a fixed place in our living room.

We would highly recommend Dimuthu! And also a holiday to Sri Lanka. A perfect place for a family holiday, we always felt safe!

Warm greetings from Belgium.

Where to begin? Our family had the most wonderful trip to Sri Lanka, with Dimuthu as our guide, who made this trip so memorable. From the beautiful hotels he picked for us every night to the local restaurants and hidden beaches during the day time, it’s safe to say we wouldn’t of had nearly as good a trip without his expert guidance.

He was so attentive throughout the whole holiday, always ensuring we were comfortable at our hotels, and doing activities that suited all the family. He couldn’t have planned better activities, from the turtle hatchery to Siegra lion rock to white water rafting, everything was so much fun.

Dimuthu was so enthusiastic about everything we did, and it added greatly to the trip to have local knowledge at every site and stop, to add a story or a bit of history to our trip.

I couldn’t recommend Dimuthu more as a tour guide and driver to anyone visiting Sri Lanka!

To put it simply Dimuthu was an incredible guide. He made our 14 day tour of Sri Lanka an easy and amazing experience.

Throughout the trip Dimuthu was so thoughtful and considerate. Every time we traveled somewhere new he made sure that we were comfortable and happy. He always knew the best places to eat and the best activities to do.

Being a bit of a history enthusiast it was such a bonus that Dimuthu knew the answer to every question I had. He was so knowledgeable and helpful and made every new destination cultural and interesting.

If you are considering booking with Tharul travel and Dimuthu I would highly encourage you to do so. His English was perfect and he made our trip the trip of a lifetime.

Thank you

Chami - The best driver and guide in Sri Lanka (possibly the world!) helped my wife Nic and I enjoy a brilliant 18 days on this beautiful island.
Chami is the most competent and safe driver, successfully navigating the ‘interesting roads ‘ of the island.
Also, Chami helpfully pointed out interesting landmarks and made good suggestions to ensure we made the most of our trip.
My wife Nic and I visited at the time of the very sad bombings in Colombo, Chami was great at keeping us appraised of the dreadfully sad situation, keeping us safe and progressing our trip.
If we’re lucky enough to visit Sri Lanka again soon, we hope we’re also lucky enough to book the best driver and guide in the world!

We had the most wonderful time travelling about Sri Lanka, could not recommend this tour/service enough. Nisha was the most amazing driver/guide with many many facts and so much pride for his home country, he brought us places so beautiful that we never knew existed and never seen through Instagram.We learnt a lot about Sri Lanka life and nature from him! We had plenty of laughs and fun, we were able to stick to our itenary to see what we prioritised for our 10 days but also got to see more by stopping at incredible view points!
The company is very efficient with communication via WhatsApp and also very flexible with the itenary as it changes.
Fantastic trip, we are very grateful!!!
