Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

During my visit to Sri Lanka for the first time, I wanted to be sure that my family will be served with comfortable and safe transportation option for 4 days.
Mr. Ajith ( our assigned driver) was very respectful and responsible person lead our trip to Nuwara Eliya ( a 5-hour drive from CMB airport) in a luxury A/C, hi roof KDH van and tours around the attractions in addition of advising ones to choose from if you don’t know where to go. He is definitely a great addition to our trip. My only advise for the company is to invest in vehicle’s interior maintenance.

I have booked 32 seats Bus and a Car from UK for 17th Feb.,18 by contacting Dharshana who is the owner of this company, When I went to Srilanka and called the company, her manager said ,there is no bookings under our name and no vehicles are available. I have all the email correspondences available to confirm these bookings.
They wasted hour time as we need to arrange a vehicle from somewhere.
Please do not use this company as this website is a scam as they have only few vehicles.and do not have proper customer service.

I booked Dharshana luxury SUV for the length of 5 days starting from 26 February 2018.
I precised my Tour in advance so the company knew what I wanted and knew the number of kilometers to be done (about 900 km).We agreed on payment in USD 850 for 700 km and 1,2 USD for each km over this limit. Now I know why Dharshana Company applies this unfair way of billing their guests.
The driver has driven always detours likely to avoid traffic jams, but the drive time has never been shorter on the contrary we have traveled for hours taking these detours. The travel time from Colombo airport to Kalametiya (240 km) was 6 hours. Every night required the driver extra payment for his accomodation. This would not be so bad if not plenty of kilometers he had to do to find it. I noticed that the total number of km made by him only in order to find his accommodation within this 4 nights was 108 km. These were 130 USD extra on my bill (1,20 USD per km)- kms i did not ordered.
The only positive thing was that our driver was really nice and friendly guy.
The luxury SUV was an 5 years old Toyota Prado with 2 tv devices that did not work at all. The electric windows did not work properly , as well.
I am really dissapointed about this very expensive service aiming at drawing the tourists as much money from the wallet as possible.
My advice: Desire in advance the entire pricing of Your Tour and do never agree for arrangements with over kilometers!!!!!!!!

I am using Darshana’s service for the second time and I was once more amazed by the hospitality and service of his drivers, or I rather call them tour guides. Prasanna, has been exceptional in his approach, right from the pick up, till the drop. Kudus to you guys 👏👏👏.

I used this company for my van and driver rental , after researching many companies for this service.
I received a quality driver and a quality guide for my 16 day trip around Sri Lanka.
I had many quotes and this was excellent value for my itinerary.
The van had plenty of room for four with luggage and will not hesitate to recommend Dharshana Enterprises.
All the pick up times were spot on and time keeping excellent.
The driver and guide were a huge part of this successful trip.

This company was fantastic from the first communications to the end of the holiday. Correspondence was excellent leaving you with no doubt that a driver would be at the airport to collect you. We arrived in the early hours of the morning and the driver as advised was waiting to collect with our name on a board. Smartly dressed and vehicles in good condition. Knowledge was excellent and took us to see many places we not have visited, if along.

I am a Sri Lankan Doctor living and working in Australia. I was returning home for a 3 week vacation with my family and decided to book a van to go to Passikuda after Christmas and decided to rely on the reviews and booked a van with Dharshana: the Email communications were prompt and polite and a Rs 3000 deposit was requested which I transferred to the nominated bank account. The day before the trip I called the number provided but went thru to chaminda who then gave me a number which went thru to Thishara who knew nothing about the van hire. Then I called Viraj (0770457706) the nominated driver who was in fact a 3rd party van owner: they promised to send the van by 6 am but then got a call at 10 pm saying the van that was promised at Rs.30K was not available and they could send another van: In desperation I accepted. The contact was Anuradha who then sent an excellent van (smaller) with Driver Neel Bandara who was an educated and civil person who I would highly recommend(0777349199) : He speaks English as well as Sinhalese and tamil!!
The cost blew out and there was some discontent but overall the latter experience was excellent. I would RECOMMEND Neel Bandara to any one but AVOID the middle man!

We are a group of 16 friends planned to go around Sri Lanka for a week. The best decision we made while preparing for the trip was to contact Dharshana and to take the bus service from him. The 22 seater bus was really comfortable. Staffs who were assigned Amila and ⁠⁠⁠Thanrindu helped us a lot with our half baked plan.

We will strongly recommend Dharshana's service if you are planning to tour in Sri Lanka.
