my boyfriend and I are travelling to Sri Lanka in January, and for the first days we would like to travel around a bit. When planning this we have a few questions:
1. What do we need to think about in order to secure a good driver/nice car?
2. What is the average rate for hiring a driver and car?
3. Is food/overnight stay for the driver normally included in this price, or do we pay for that in addition to the day rate?
4. Do we also pay for the drivers return travel to the starting point? (Galle-Colombo/airport).
The drive will start from Negombo (the airport) and end in Galle, and during the trip we will visit Sigiriya, perhaps drive through Kandy, Nuwara Eliya and Haputale on our way to Galle. We would also like to see elephants/other wildlife, can you perhaps advice us as to whether it is best to visit Pinnawala (the orphanage) or a national park like Udawalawe?
I look forward to your good advice!
