In the National Day 2015,my friends and I went to Sri Lanka.Fortunately, we chose krish's car,and we met a very good driver, Nalaka,and became good friends with him.Because of him,We are all very very very happy in the whole trip.The last day we went to his house, felt the local humanities. and we love his family, looking forward to see them again.
In general,if you want to go to Sri Lanka, Krish must be a good choice!!!

We first heard about Krish though a friend of ours and decided that it would be best to have a guide to help us navigate this beautiful country. Krish was much more than just driver; he has a depth of knowledge of the country that is invaluable. Without him,the stories of many of the 3rd century BC artifacts, temples, UNESCO sites and so on, would have been lost to us. There were also other (less intellectually stimulating) sites that he took us to for animal siting, snorkeling, and hiking. One thing is also for sure: Krish is very passionate about making sure that his guests have a safe journey. The car rides can be a bit harrowing because of the way that everyone drives there (read: terrifying) but Krish was constantly checking in on how we were doing and making sure that we were happy. During our third week there, we unfortunately we were hit by a drunk driver (not Krish's fault in any way) and although Krish's car needed repairs, he made sure that our tour continued with a new guide who was just as kind.
If you are interested in seeing a country that is as beautiful as it is diverse, Sri Lanka is for you! However, as my husband and I learned to say by the end of the trip "Sri Lanka ain't for the faint!". The heat and humidity can be quite strong, the bugs in the rain forest can leave you with fascinating skin challenges, and the hikes (though totally worth it) leave you breathless and sore the next day. :) Go for an adventure of a lifetime and soak in all that Sri Lanka has to offer.

My husband and I were so lucky to choose this tour for Srilanka. Our tour guide "Shiran" was a great choice for 6 days. He was very kind, warm, patient and knowledgable person about his country. He speaks very good English and is always eager to learn more. Shiran's driving behaviour was very polite, calm and safe. His car was always clean and ready for long rides.
We would like to thank him for all of his efforts because he left a beautiful memory of his country that makes us want to come back again and again and again with him.
We were supposed to have the tour with Mr. Krish but he was busy, and luckily he had Shiran free for us. We couldn't be more grateful.
My husband and I spent one night with Krish and Shiran over a great dinner in Kandy and it was great to have both of them with us.
If you are looking for a trustful journey with an amazing company, then you will find nothing better than Sri Lanka for vacation - Day tours.

Thank you again!!

We choose to travel with Krish for our first ever visit to Sri Lanka. Krish was a recommendation from my good friend of mine Josh. He liked how Krish was always polite and kind and told me Krish is one of the best tour guides in Sri Lanka and I must agree! He is the best! We did write to a few agents around Sri Lanka but his rate is worthy and he planned an itinerary that we wanted with no hidden clauses. He was always prompt in replying to our emails and that made him stand out than any other.

Our trip began from Colombo airport heading to Elephant Orphanage at Pinnawala, and thereafter to Sigiriya. But when we reach Pinnawala, my friends felt we miss half the itinerary of the day and seem not worthy to go. Krish did not fret when we made that sudden change in our plan. He was very flexible. For every spot that we visit, Krish gives such enchanting history of those places. He tells the tale with so much passion for the ancient history and the proud moment of being a Sri Lankan, Buddhist and naturally a good person. It’s great to see people appreciate history so much and willing to share with no exaggerations. Stories about ravana and kataragama were one of our favourites! We spend almost 2 hours just listening and asking him so many questions about it. During the long hours in the car, we even played games to keep us sane from the long drive and he was singing for us his favourite local song and kuch kuch hotta hai...During our stay in Yala, we were told by the hotel that we need to check out by 11 am and we will not be able to refresh after the trip at the National Park. Krish as usual being our guardian angel arranged with his friend to let us refresh at their home before we head to our next pit stop. The hospitality was great and they serve us tea and even charged less than the initially quotes for the jeep. Krish is a great photographer too! He snapped so many great pictures of us with his phone and camera and we took so many “WE”fies!

Krish is very helpful to translate and explain when he takes us to places for our meals with one friend being vegetarian and all of us not being a big eater. He manages to work things out for us all. Krish is ever ready to protect us from any harm. We even learned a few local words from Krish. Stuti (Thank You) Krish.
Over our 9 day trip we have build a great friendship and our trip was filled many happy moments. Jokes we will cherish every time we see another elephant or a whale
