Srilanka tour - Need info about driver/guide + car

Hi,

I plan to travel to SriLanka in mid-April. I arrive in Colombo early afternoon and plan to drive down to Habarana (4 nights stay ) directly , Kandy (2 nights stay) and return to Colombo via Kitugala.

I am looking for a driver with a car who can serve as a guide while I am in Habarana and Kandy. Can you please recommend a good company or a drvier/guide ?

Thanks,

Kalyani

Hi Kalyani,

The proper way to do this is to send PM (Personal Message) to some of the people here in the forum who mentioned good experiences, including with a driver. This includes the Destination Experts. Solely this way we can avoid the forum becoming too commercial....

Tnx,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Mid April............ oh its raining I understand. It should continue

until the Sinhala/Tamil new year festival end they say......

You can view wild Elephants, Monkey and a safari in Habarana.

I think its a better option than going to Yala.

The driver I used was good in suggesting these. Overall good.Yes !!!

7 marks out of 10....

Then you have misunderstood. Until about end of April it's usually some afternoon/evening showers. 1st inter monsoon with quite unsettle weather starts in May.
