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.

A very outstanding experience with Achila, very attentive to every single detail. He is a super nice person, always smiling and trying to please all your requests. I already booked the hotels and organised the trip before I contacted him but I know he could arrange accommodation if you would like to.
If I needed a driver I would choose him again and again.
100% reccomended.

Achila was absolutely brilliant! He. was so kind and thoughtful and made our trip around beautiful Sri Lanka hassle free! His car was great - spotless and we had some great Spotify lists! He sorted our train tickets to Ella and made sure we always had water and snacks when we needed them. He was always available to us - took us to some great spots we wouldn’t have found on our own (one of which was an absolute highlight) and organised our guides in the National parks! Nothing was too much trouble but the main part for me was that it was a pleasure to spend time with him which is important - we looked forward to seeing him every morning!!

We booked Achila for a 2 week trip and are so glad we did. Having a driver is a great idea and having Achila was invaluable. He helped us book some hotels and was happy for us to mix and match hotels we found with his suggestions.

Achila is a great driver and a kind and friendly person. Whoever we went he took care to make sure we were happy and settled and he was always available should we need him. His mother in law even made us snacks for the train journey to Ella!

Achila’s wealth of knowledge of the country really set him apart. When we thought we had a long day of driving ahead he would make suggestions of places of interest to stop at, and often these would end up being the highlight of the day! Having someone know what sights are worth the visit and then just taking you there really takes out the question mark of if it will be worth it and saves time and the faff of finding out how to get there.

I really can’t recommend him enough!

We traveled a good week around Sri Lanka with Achila. He arranged everything for us and everything was as we agreed before coming. He is very helpful and tries his best for you to have a good experience. He recommended visiting some places on the way and he also suggested great restaurants with a local food (which we both enjoyed). He can adapt as best as possible if you want to change everything and he is always trying to make sure stuff are as you want/expect it to be. His driving is also very good and he can point out places for you.

Achila is also very nice and friendly person and would definitely recommend to go on a tour around Sri Lanka with him. When I am coming to Sri Lanka again we will definitely contact him again. He made us feel very welcomed in the country and helped us whenever he could. Had a great experience and can’t wait to be back! :)

Achila was our driver for 5 days on our Sri Lanka trip. He was waiting for us in the airport and drove us to Sigiriya, Kandy, Ella and Mirissa. He went above and beyond and accompanied us on our hike in Sigiriya and organised a BBQ for us on our last night in Mirissa. He took so many amazing photos for us to treasure and was kind and fair throughout. He is very honest and reliable and showed us local tips and spots. We changed our route mid journey as we decided we wanted to go to Mirissa and he helped us to book an amazing accommodation as well as a surfing lesson. We would highly recommend him!

We had an amazing trip to Sri Lanka which was made so special by our private guide Achila. He made us feel safe and took us to places we didn’t know existed. He is friendly, caring and really looked after us…his mother even made us a curry to try! I cannot recommend Achila highly enough

Achila has been an exceptional driver, who has accompanied us to different areas of Sri Lanka, teaching us things about the country's culture and society. He even invited us to eat at his house in Kandy and got us the train tickets we needed. Your car has air conditioning, very important. One hundred percent recommended!

Achila is the best driver in all of Sri Lanka! It was a great success to hire him since he helped us at all times and advised us when we didn't know what to do. Without a doubt I recommend it 100%. Thanks for everything!!

We decided to take a driver in Srilanka because we only had 10 days (9 full days) and we wanted to see as much of the country as possible. We found Achila a week and a half before the trip through a travel forum. At first we weren't very sure if we would lose that charm of Asia to the adventure... but... really... it was the best option. Not only did he readjust the itinerary for us to make the most of it, it was like traveling through Srilanka with a local friend, he took us to the most remote places, to his house to meet his family and his baby where his mother and his wife offered us fruits from their own trees, cakes cooked by their mother... what a blast. But the thing doesn't stop there... he took us to a Hindu ceremony, but not in a place full of tourists... no... in a beautiful temple where there were only locals who gave us a brutal experience and we ended up dancing to to rejoice the Buddhist God with the local women, men and girls... well... well... I just... I have no words.
He got us discounts on almost everything we decided to do since he has friends everywhere, including one with a private beach where we enjoyed the last day, with a paradise beach for us ALONE. BRUTAL.
He also invited us to the house of a family of friends of his, where they prepared some spectacularly delicious fish and a shrimp dish, all grilled... really... I don't know how to describe that he has not only been a driver , has been a friend, discovering his country to us with care and respect...
Ah! Another detail! I got sick with my stomach and he was worried all the time about how I was feeling. He even took me to the pharmacy and we got medicines that allowed me to continue enjoying the trip... really... amazing...
I recommend it 200%
Stūtiyi for everything "papa" Achila
