I wrote to several companies about arranging a 3-day whirlwind tour and ended up choosing Lakpura. Malsiri was very patient with our email deliberations, and he didn't freak out when we decided to book transport only and not a tour package. He also checked in just before and during our tour to make sure everything was on track.
Our driver Andrew Noyahr was just fabulous, can't praise him highly enough. We visited Dambulla caves, Wilpattu National Park, Anuradhapura, Minneriya National Park, Sigiriya Rock, and Polonnaruwa; everything was flawless. Although Andrew was meant to be a driver only, his English was excellent and he provided plenty of guide-like information. He also suggested one lunch place that was just terrific (Priyamali Gedara near Polonnaruwa, reviewed separately), but he was not at all pushy. We enjoyed getting to know him and would use him again in a heartbeat.
