Overview

My name is Upali Balasooriya. I am a Buddhist Sinhalese. Born in Kandy which is a world heritage site. I started my services as a tourist guide and worked for more than 10 years. I do have a lot of experience in driving through Sri Lanka, knowing all the famous sites and serve you as your personal guide to Sri Lanka. Nowadays I live in Negombo so it easy for me to pick you up at the airport. Upali

I highly recommend Upali as a serious and good driver and guide. Especially for the people who are interested in Nature and animals. He made the car trip into an adventure. Recommended good external guides when needed. We will come again.
