Rishan was very friendly and informative. Our trip was too short but he was able to give good recommendations and to maximise oour time in making it a fulfilling one. A 2nd driver was introduced to us - less fluent in English but was pretty good still.

We have had the best week in Sri Lanka with Jason! He’s been a great driver but also so much more. He’s helped us create an itinerary for our trip, booked hotels and tours, offered suggestions on activities and stops, and let us make spur-of-the-moment decisions like stopping for king coconuts and curd with honey en route. We would highly recommend Sri Lanka private drivers and Jason for anyone looking for a stress free trip to the beautiful country of Sri Lanka!

We spent 4 days with our driver, Rishan, and we are lucky to have him during our trip at Sri Lanka. He is responsive and gives us freedom to plan our trip while providing good feedback to make our trip better and effortless. We will always try his food recommendation as we know that it will be yummy. Thanks Rishan for making this trip a pleasant one!

Rishan spent 9days with us travelling through part of beautiful Sri Lanka and we knew we were on good hands from day one. It was a good balance between his suggestions and what we wanted to see so it always felt opened for suggestions from both sides. His recommendations for either restaurants.. Places of interest.. Where we would get better buys.. Etc, were always always appreciated especially the food and he was never wrong! Thank you Rishan for making our long awaited trip to your amazing home country a memorable one❤️

Rishan was the first private driver we have decided to book in our travels. We wanted someone that could get us from point A to B quickly but to also be a friendly companion on the road and to also share some great knowledge about the beautiful country of Sri Lanka. We got all that with Rishan’s service. Unlike some of the dodgy treatment we got with some tuk tuks and pushy taxi drivers that tried to force us to do things... you will avoid having such bad experiences when hiring a private driver like Rishan. We had a travel itinerary sorted out and we got Rishan to review it and we got so much helpful feedback to make our trip run as smooth as possible. Rishan would also go above and beyond to help us out with communicating to others when language was an issue. He even waited for us at 1am in the airport and drove us from Colombo to Galle! He has some great tips on where to go, stay and also where to eat! The only bad thing is we couldn’t stay longer and enjoy Rishan’s company and see more of Sri Lanka! We will definitely use his service next time we come again!
