      Upul made our trip super Smooth !
      We booked the tour for 7 days, we knew our itinerary and wanted a trusted vehicle for the same. *Upul* got assigned to us and we had an excellent experience with him! He knows the entire of Sri Lanka at the back of his hand. He would also suggest many hidden gems which we loved to visit ! He quickly understood our taste and his restaurant recommendations were spot on ! He even helped us book many safari tours, tea plantation tours etc without being taken advantage off... The vehicle was super clean and had all the safety features we wanted... Very kind, very courteous man who was friendly but very professional as well... We highly recommend going ahead with this, it made our trio extremely memorable! Thanks again Upul !

      Great experience with Sujeewa
      We spent a week driving around Sri Lanka and the trip went smoothly and we were happy with everything. Communications with SLPD were quick and efficient. We were really lucky to have Sujeewa as our driver. He was always on time and a very knowledgeable guide! He is experienced and recommended a good change to our itinerary which worked out very well. He also made other helpful suggestions of places for us to visit. His car is comfortable and we always felt safe on the road. We would highly recommend using Sujeewa when booking your trip!

      Safe, stress-free experience
      We had a great experience with Danushka on our 12 day trip around Sri Lanka. He was a safe, friendly, and prompt driver, but he also educated us on the country, suggested additional places to stop, and told us how to best tour some of the more crowded sites on our itinerary. We would absolutely travel with him again if we returned. I was a bit hesitant to book such a critical part of the trip based on TA reviews alone, but Shiyan was highly responsive and provided a fair quote. Having a consistent driver for the whole trip made things infinitely less stressful than trying to arrange travel for each leg.

      A very easy and seamless Sri Lankan Holiday
      I traveled to Sri Lanka with my parents. Everything from the communication to planning and arrangement of pick up from airport was very seamless and easy. The boss was very clear in his communication. He was also very helpful with my planning. We were very fortunate to have Upul as our driver and guide for this trip, a very kind and patient gentleman. He is not only very knowledgeable but also very helpful - from arranging our tours, helping us settle in at our hotels and also with amazing restaurant suggestions. Upul also communicates very clearly and it’s very easy to understand everything. Not to mention he accommodated multiple stops for me to take photographs. I am really grateful we met Upul and will definitely reach out to him on my next trip. Highly recommend those visiting Sri Lanka to reach out to Shiyan of SLPD and please ask for Upul. He’s the best!! Thank you very much Upul! This review is based on my own experience with Upul and this company.

      Great driver and experience.
      We had a wonderful experience in Sri Lanka. Our driver was Sampath who was kind, generous and an excellent driver. He gave us many ideas beyond our itinerary and had some impressive connections with people throughout the country, built up after years of driving. The roads are a challenge to drive on, but Sampath was safe, with good expertise. Most of all, Sampath has a lovely, warm manner which was much appreciated. We highly recommend him.

      Manoj-best driver ever!!! Choose him!!
      It was my first time hiring a private driver on a trip to Asia, so at first I was a little on the fence. However, I am so glad myself and my female friend went for it. Manoj was an absolute delight; he was informative, kind and always efficient/on time. There was no fuss with him, he just got on with the job - from long drives from Colombo to the coast, or short trips to the beach or to do some shopping. My friend also hurt her knee and he was extremely quick to get her seen at the medical clinic. I also liked the fact we had a local showing us around, it felt very secure and safe, given we were two women traveling. If you are deciding I'd say absolutely go for it and choose Manoj!!!

      Smooth, easy trip with great driver Manoj!!
      Myself & a female friend travelled around Sri Lanka for two weeks & initially weren't sure if we wanted to go for a private driver or not. But it ended up being such a success. It was so easy with our fantastic driver Manoj. He knew the roads very well, was efficient, always on time & always had a smile. He was pretty much available most of the time ie-for little beach trips to long journeys across the country. We also felt very safe & looked after with him. For example my friend fell & grazed her knee and he was very attentive & knew where to get instant medical attention. Great experience all in all! If in doubt id say go for it.

      The best driver in Sri Lanka
      Went on a 11 day trip with Danushka as our driver. I had the most amazing experience with him across different cities of Sri Lanka! You don’t have to worry about logistics and itinerary as he will get you covered. Danushka is sincere and follows us on all our hikes. (which he doesn’t need to) He is always on the look out to give us the best Sri Lanka has to offer be it food, activities, people. Thank you Danushka the legend!

      Sampath was amazing!!
      We spent a week driving around Sri Lanka with Sampath and had such a wonderful experience. Sampath was always on time (quite early actually) and got us safely from one destination to the next along winding roads. Not only did Sampath drive us, but he helped coordinate our trip for us. We got valuable advice from him on every day of our itinerary. Same for Shiyan, who manages the WhatsApp of the company who helped match us with Sampath, they gave us much needed feedback on our itinerary. Highly recommend!

      Excellent services and professionalism
      We used Sri Lanka Private driver services during our 11 days itinerary in Sri Lanka and everything went smoothly. From the beginning the communication is great and you can tailor your trip as wanted at a fair price. Our driver name was Sujeewa. He was always very punctual and we always felt very safe. The car was comfortable and clean. If you are planning a trip to Sri Lanka and want a reliable, friendly and knowledgeable driver to guide you through this amazing country, look no further. We totally recommend his services.

      Excellent Driver for an Unforgettable Sri Lankan Journey
      We had the pleasure of traveling with Parsad for six days through the stunning landscapes of Sri Lanka, and it was an experience we'll cherish forever. His professionalism and dedication to ensuring we had the best possible experience were evident throughout our journey. Parsad not only chauffeured us to all the must-see destinations but also took us off the beaten path to discover hidden gems we wouldn't have found on our own. One thing we truly appreciated was the attention to detail Parsad showed in ensuring our comfort. The air conditioning in the vehicle was always on point, providing relief from the tropical heat and allowing us to relax and enjoy the scenery. Above all, Parsad's genuine enthusiasm for sharing the beauty of his country with us was very appreciate it. He went above and beyond to accommodate our requests and tailor the itinerary to suit our interests, making every day of our journey truly unforgettable. If you're planning a trip to Sri Lanka and want a reliable, friendly, and knowledgeable driver to guide you through this incredible country, look no further than Parsad. We can't recommend him highly enough!

      I would avoid this company
      I’m not sure quite what went wrong on our trip as I can see my experience was quite different to a lot of the other reviews. We arranged for this company to take us round our 7 stops on our 15 day trip. The driver picked us up from the airport with a slight delay but nothing major. He took us to our hotel and was supposed to pick us up the next day to drive us 4 hours to Sigiriya. Unfortunately despite confirmation the day before he failed to appear. We kept being told he would be five more minutes but it was over an hour before anyone showed up. So instead of waiting by the pool we were stuck waiting in a hotel lobby as we were constantly told just another 5 minutes. It wasn’t the first driver who arrived but someone else who was falling asleep at the wheel. The vehicle was not air conditioned. We did receive many apologies for the delay. From then on we never had the same driver twice. We had a variety of vehicles that weren’t air conditioned. They did turn up on time though. The last driver had quite a bad attitude and we had to give him 1000 rupee to get through a toll. Even though all fees were supposed to be included. We felt we didn’t have much choice as he said he had no money. We never got this money back and it was the last of our cash leaving us short. On top of that the communication was terrible. No idea who to give our money to and a dispute at the end of the last journey about how much we owed. I was told I would get a 20% refund when I arrived home but excuses were made and no refund was forthcoming in the end. I would avoid this company.

      Unforgettable trip
      Unforgettable trip. The company showed seriousness and professionalism from the very beginning, with accurate and timely responses almost immediately. A few days before our trip, they gave us the contact of our driver, Upul, who was already waiting for us at the airport with a big smile upon arrival. I couldn't imagine our trip to Sri Lanka without Upul; he exceeded our expectations by far, not just a driver but our own local guide, providing accurate information and advice while always respecting our preliminary plan. I was surprised by his ability to pay attention to even the smallest detail, purchasing tickets in advance, organizing safaris with incredible experiences, like seeing a leopard in a tree or fulfilling my wish to see elephants bathing in water. One of Upul's abilities was time management, and his organizational skills definitely saved us a lot of time and money. I wholeheartedly recommend the service provided by this company. Upul ensured at all times that we felt safe, comfortable, and satisfied; these have been 10 unforgettable days.

    This last september my wife and me we've been to Sri Lanka with my seventy year old mum. We had heard about private drivers for holidays, so we checked it on Internet and we found this company, which seemed very reliable. I think it's been a great decision. They quickly got us in contact with one of their drivers: Upul. Thanks to him we have enjoyed much more our holidays in Sri Lanka because he is a veteran driver who knows every inch of his home island like the palm of his hand. Upul has been very attentive to us during our whole stay, accompanying us at every moment so that we felt safer, helping my mum up and down the steps of the monuments, and helping us with our luggage. He has also explained us a lot of interesting things about the culture of Sri Lanka. We are very happy with Upul, thanks to him we've had a superb time in Sri Lanka.

    We had the greatest experience in Sri Lanka. We sent an email to the owner of the company and he immediatly answered us back. We went, me and my family, to Sri Lanka and our driver Upul was waiting for us at the airport. He is the perfect guide: he has been with us all along the trip, explaining all the curiosities of every place and giving us advice of the best options for us. A really nice person. We highly recommend this company to anyone who wants yo visit this beautiful country!!

    It was a pleasure to have Prasad as our driver during our 7 days in Sri Lanka. We met him promptly on landing and from start to finish he did everything to ensure our time in Sri Lanka was the best. Prasad was very knowledgeable with the local area and took us to the best places. He ensured our safety throughout the trip. When we went to places which were more ‘touristy’ he ensured we got good pictures and a good experience escorting us through the crowds.
    Prasad’s English was very good and he was very approachable and chatty throughout the trip. We highly recommend Prasad to be a guide and driver. He is an assist to the company.

    Best driver ever, Manoj! He is not only a driver but really taking good care of us, also providing good recommendations when there were changes in plan. Humorous and sharing us many information about Sri Lanka. Really passionate in his profession. Entertaining and fun journey just like friend. Of course very good English communication (reason why we go with “Sri Lanka Private Driver”). We were happy with the entire trip and glad that we have engaged them!

    We did a round trip through Sri Lanka with a private driver. His name is Sujeewa and it could not have been more fun. During our trip he made sure we had an amazing time. He recommended great actives and places! We felt very safe at all times and the vehicle was great.
    I can only recommend traveling through Sri Lanka with him :)

    We absolutely recommend using this service. Communication has been great from the start with the company and I always received very clear and prompt answers. In Sri Lanka, Nawa was our driver during our holiday and he was great. He took us around the island and ensured that everything was going smoothly. He was always well prepared, he knew where all our hotels were located and suggested sight seeing tours for us. We all felt very safe and comfortable with Nawa. He drove very well, he was always very calm on the streets and very patient. This was definitely an added bonus to our trip.
