I disagree with Lakpura , They are known companies ... .also as correctly mention there are many other companies who offers same service that you can look at . But even these people are very good as I had used them once for twice .

Since now government is so concern on development tourism industry ,none of these people can play around with tourist so basically now all most all Sri Lanka agencies provide great service regardless of them been big or small .

ha ha ha ha . Good one . Self promotions on what ? ... Sir .. my apologies if I offended you. Do you meant to say that i am promoting all three companies ? I do not have any business interested on this as I making enough money from Job .

If you want more information this my profile listed at Professionals network at LinkedIn

http://lk.linkedin.com/in/thareendra

Just do not use this forum to indirectly promote business and indirectly give bad impression on other small people who do the same service as you does . Not nice .We all want to promote Sri Lanka as brand not our selves .

In my four years experience of many driving companies in Sri lanka, I found that the larger, better known companies are the ones who treat their drivers the worst and where you get the most pressure to stop for places where the drivers can earn commission (which they need because their wages are so poor)... the best two I have found, who seem to pay their drivers an ethical wage of almost double the daily wage told to me by many others in the industry (I always check these things with various people working as I work in development and like to give my money into fair companies) are: Sri Lanka Wide Tours and Sri Lanka Driver Tours apparently not owned by the same people despite their similar names.

The smaller companies run by families may be slightly more informal in some regards by their nature... but your money goes into the family and their drivers rather than a big company who also own hotels and no local people get anything good out of it... they may be more professional, but they are (in my opinion) less ethical.
