We did a tour from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya with Gayan. He came and picked us up with his convenient bus and showed us all amazing places, waterfalles, tea plantages and many amazing views. After our tour he took us to Adams Peak, where we did the trial next morning. Very kind man, who does everything to make you feel comfortable. Highly recommended for short tours but also for long travels through Sri Lanka.
Today we visited Horton Plains, some waterfalls en tea factories. Two days ago we contacted using mail and WhatsApp and got very quick responses, yesterday he picked us up at the train station for free. Today we had a great time seeing multiple places around Nuwara Eliya.
So really recommended if you want to see Nuwara Eliya and surroundings or you just need a pickup!
D&D Tours came highly recommended by our friends. It was easy communicating with Gayan prior to the trip, he was very helpful with suggestions and helped us secured train tickets from Nuwaraya eliya to Ella.
Our driver was Sarath (SK) who was friendly, reliable and flexible with our requests. He drove us around for 5 days where we visited Kandy, Sigiriya, Nuwaraya eliya, Ella and Galle. Some of the highlights include Udawala safari tour, tea plantation @ Nuwaraya Eliya, Moonplains, Dambulla cave temple and Galle Dutch fort. SK helped us arranged the tours, through him we were able to meet many nice locals.
Sri Lanka is a beautiful country, we’ll definitely visit again.
1. time with service from this company was March 2016 - with Sampath Rathnayaka as guide and driver. Now this year he made for us most of the arrangements for coming around to the east coast and south, with hotel bookings, getting train tickets for us, recommended restaurants + reservations and div. shopping stops.
The start was Colombo to Pasikudah ,7 hours trip. Pick up one week later for Nuwara Eliya by the owner himself. From N.E. Sampath arranged tickets and even seats!! for our train trip to Ella!! Sampath followed the train to Ella by car with our luggage!. In Ella he followed us as guide to Adams P. - the tea factory, the Arch bridge and introduced 2 restaurants, everything perfect. 2 days Ella, than nonstop by car to Yala and goodby. ;)
Even here he cut arrange pick up with a safari car ( a friend of him) with 25 % off. - instead to give it to the hotel ( for one phone call)! We like Sampath very much and once again we have been very happy with his company. He is a safe driver, he has very good knowledge about all turist routes and places.
It's easy to fix contact with Sampath Rathnayaka, even before going to Sri Lanka. It's best by WhatsApp or Messenger or FB.
We wish to give a highly recommendation to "D&D Services" and the fair prices they will give you! They all are honest, friendly and on time every day!
Gayan is friendly, drive safely and knowledgeable. He would like to introduce his hometown for you. He can help to organize your trip in Sri Lanka, not only in Nuwara Eliya. He's driving me to visiting a tea factory, waterfalls, and Horton Plains. Considerate of stopping for photos. Just tell him what you would like to visit and what you want. He will try the best to help you organize. He can provide tuk tuk or private van with a reasonable price. Also, he will introduce the good restaurant for you. Easily contact by Whatsapp. Highly recommend his service. Value of money!
