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.

    We had Pradeep from piyaratours@gmail.com drive us for 3 weeks, we planned where we wanted to go, he offered advice and gave us a quote. We had an amazing time. Pradeep was terrific, great to travel with, happy to share his knowledge, culture and country with us. Pradeep made it all so easy, took us to some local food stalls , booked train and other tickets for us and was happy to take us to the Craft tunnel to meet Sri Lanka’s master potter (pottery is a hobbie of mine)
    When I return to Sri Lanka I will definitely travel with Pradeep again!

    We had an excellent experience with Your Driver Sri Lanka on our recent trip, and couldn’t recommend them more highly.
    From my first inquiry Chami was always very quick to respond in WhatsApp and answer any questions to help get our itinerary planned. This excellent communication continued throughout the trip. When we slightly changed our plans to include an extra day trip this was organised quickly, despite it being at the last minute.

    Our driver Dhanushka was fantastic, and we don’t think our trip would have been the same without him! From the moment we met him at the airport, we learned so much about the country from him. We really enjoyed our conversations in the car with him. He was an excellent guide as well as an excellent driver. He was always on time for our pick ups, and always knew some excellent sights to stop on our routes to see as much as we could on the trip, including some that were not as well known so we were the only people there. He gave us a guided tour of the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy which was interesting and informative. On a few of our days he took us to some restaurants for lunch, and the food was always fantastic! He also arranged some snorkelling and surfing for us, both of which were excellent.

    YDSL, Chami and Dhanuska really took all the stress out of planning such a big trip, and we can’t thank them enough for making our trip to Sri Lanka so incredible!

    Absolutely recommend the Taxigo taxi service run by Francis. Having travelled to Sri Lanka often, I've relied on him for the last three trips. Whether it’s sorting out a trip on short notice, arranging different vehicle types or even tours, he’s able to help.

    His drivers are safe, professional, and friendly—exactly what you need when looking for dependable and trustworthy transport in Sri Lanka.

    Someone canceled and this person gave us tickets for free just to be kind. Never have i experienced this before, so you know what person you are dealing with. A kind man that want you to have a good time instead of your money

    The trip was amazing. Very well planned out. Both the staff (guide and driver) from travellers choice to Ceylon were professional and reliable. The guide from travellers choice to Ceylon was v knowledgeable and engaging. He made the trip an enjoyable one. They both brought us to experience not only the nature of Sri Lanka but also the local culture and food which made the trip all the more authentic. I would definitely choose travellers choice to Ceylon again when I’m coming back to Sri Lanka. 100% recommend all to travel with them!

    We spent a wonderful 10 nights in Sri Lanka - made even more enjoyable by the care, guidance and assistance of Namal from Avotas Tours.
    Namal was excellent-very well spoken, a fabulously safe driver and clearly very passionate and caring about his country.
    We were picked up from the airport and then Namal would take us wherever we were staying, always very punctual and happy to suggest places to visit enroute and helping us discuss prices with locals etc.
    We could not fault the care Namal took of us - he made it a really special holiday- thanks Namal!!

    My husband and I just returned from an awesome 2,weeks in Sri Lanka where we were supported every step of the way by Faz. We feel really grateful to have found Faz who helped us create an itinerary to ensure we saw and experienced the best of this beautiful country. Faz expertly navigated our route with safety, security and humour. He shared wonderful stories along our journey which helped us connect with the amazing citizens of Sri Lanka. Faz was flexible, respectful and informative. He ensured we had access to amazing guides, services and other transport modalities and provided a warm hand off every time. We were especially grateful for his safety focussed driving and for ensuring we were comfortable along the way. Best choice for our Sri Lankan experience. Faz made our holiday!

    We had a wonderful experience in Sri Lanka, thanks to the driver assigned to us by Sri Lanka Exclusive (SLE Tours). Our drive, Shan, was amazing. It was so coincidental that he used to live in Singapore for awhile so he was able to relate to us and our culture, food and places really well, which made the whole experience really special. Aside from that, Shan was really caring and thoughtful and he went above & beyond what drivers would normally do so that was highly appreciated. My leg muscles were really sore after all the strenuous trekking and Shan was really patient and kept offering to help me scale up & down steps due to my pain difficulties. He also took us to many delicious places for our meals and was very accommodating. I would highly recommend contacting this agency and in particular, Shan as your driver.

    In December 2023 we returned to Sri Lanka for the first time since 2016. On each trip we rented a car and driver from Malkey. On the first trip our driver for ten days was Mr Anil Peiris. The month we spent in Sri Lanka was one of the best trips we have ever done and it is no exaggeration to say that Anil was the best thing of all. Not only is he an excellent driver, making us feel confident and safe and all times, even on some pretty tough roads, his local knowledge and his English are good and he was able to advise us and guide us. But by far the most important thing is that he is such a beautiful person. We enjoyed every minute with him. His gentle humour and remarkable kindness and sensitivity immediately made us feel like we had made a new, dear friend. Indeed, we have stayed in touch through the years and, on our recent return trip, we requested that Malkey assign him to us again, which they did. Once again, he proved to be the highlight of an already-wonderful trip. Once again, he was able to recommend excellent places for us (fascinating temples, great local places to eat, a superb spa and much more), all the while being very sensitive to our interests, e.g. birds, wildlife and history. If you are looking for a driver who will provide all the obvious services you need and, in addition, will enhance your experience with his beautiful, thoughtful personality and gentle smile, we strongly recommend Anil Peiris.

    Good quality cars and drivers maybe a little fussy but overall a very good service. Price quoted on booking will change at the destination but since not a big difference from original price thats fine. Most to improve on would be the driver to come to the terminal on time

    Mano is very clearly passionate about showing Sri Lanka. His enthusiasm was contagious and not only did he work with our itinerary, he also offered suggestions of his favourite places along the way that were on paths less traveled. Since we only had a week, he was invaluable in making sure that we planned our nights in the most expeditious way possible. Not only were that lots of laughs during the drives, we always felt 100% safe and it was such a benefit to have someone that you knew was on your side when venturing off the beaten path.

    I was originally apprehensive of hiring a driver instead of taking public transit, but you cannot give Mano a miss if you're traveling around the country. He goes over and above and you will not regret it!

    We began our trip from Colombo and headed to the east coast of the country. Our driver Mr Anura De Zoysa arrived at our hotel on time for us to be picked up. He was friendly, caring and accommodating to all our needs as we were traveling with a 2yr old. He even took care of our daughter a few times when we had to step into stores or when we were having our meal. He was very knowledgeable of the roads , drove safely and knew what the fastest route was without having to use google. We thoroughly enjoyed an 8 day trip across the country and it was in large part due to Mr. Zoysa.
