Sri Lanka - Driver and Car Required 6 nights

Hi, I have read many Topics whereby people can recommend private driver with car for a trip to Sri Lanka.

Can someone let me have contact details of anyone you may have experienced and was reliable and friendly.

I will be travelling out to Sri Lanka mid September 2012 for 6 nights and leaving late morning on the 7th Day.

I have no order of itinerary but would like to visit the following places and other places anyone may recommend including:

Kandy - Temple of Tooth

Sigiriya - Rock

Dambulla - Buddhist Cave

Pinnawela - Elephant Orphanage

Habarana & Polonnaruwa

Thanks B

Hi B,

Guidelines to get a reliable driver and avoid all kinds of scams have been posted before so won't repeat. Your tour could e.g. be Pinawela-Kandy (base for 2 nights)-Dambulla-Sigiriya (base for 3 nights) and from there H/P - Negombo for last night.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Hi, if you send me a P.M I can let you have details of our driver/guide we used last November and who I can thoroughly recommend.

I can recommend a tour company based in Kandy, excellent service if you send me a PM.

Cheers

Hi! I have hired a driver for a 10days trip in March this year. My driver's name is Mr. Kumar. We all satisfied with his professional service. If you need his contact, please send me a PM.

I can only endorse what Graham has said - just back from a tour with Ranjith Alwis and cannot recommend him highly enough.
