2 days sightseeing in Nuwara Eliya and transport to bus station. I found Gayan through earlier TripAdvisor reviews and he did not disappoint. He responded quickly on WhatsApp and was punctual, something of a rarity in Sri Lanka, and good humoured as well as knowledgeable about the area, where to go and what we could do with time we had there. One thing that really struck me was that while this is his income he wasn't over focussed on the money but on us experiencing the wonderful city and area that Nuwara Eliya is. We went to Damro tea factory - great and Ramboda Falls - again loved it and a strawberry farm. Couldn't ask for better and have already recommended Gayan to others.

We spent two days in Nuwara Eliya and had the two most lovely days! Gayan picked us up at the trainsstation, took us on a tour to a tea factory and Nuwara Eliya city. The next day we had a tour to the Horton plains and he drove us to Ella and Udawalawe. Gayan was by far one of my favorite drivers in Sri Lanka, because he was very friendly and took al the time we needed. His price are also very fair. He also arranged another private taxi later on in our tour, after I contacted him via Whatsapp. He quickly responded and arranged this for us. I would highly recommend Gayan and D&D tours! Thank you for everything!

I had an excellent tour around Nuwara Eliya with Gayan, he has great local knowledge and took me to some lovely spots and local tea plantations making sure I had lots of photos. I wouldn't have seen half as much if it wasn't for him and would definitely recommend him as a guide. Thanks Gayan!

I had an incredible experience with Gayan as a driver and as a guide. I am an anxious traveler, but that was all put aside from the moment he collected me from the railway station. The following day he took me on the most beautiful and interesting Tuk Tuk tour over the city. Taking photos of me, sharing insights into the town and with the friendliest & safest service. He showed me many waterfalls and the top tea plantations - though he’s done the tour before with many tourist, he was as enthusiastic about showing me everything as a new guide. Was a great experience, very grateful to have had this company take care of me during my stay. Don’t think it would’ve been the same without Gayan. Highly recommend a tour or for any transport needs at a great price.
