Don't use this Driver!!

Dont use a driver called SUPON who workd for tour agency "visit sri lanka now", he was very rude and agressive and swore at me, as 2 women we found his agression a bit unerving and was uncalled for. You have been warned!!!!

Thank you for your warning. Yes. Everyone, but especially women travelling without a man in their group, should be very careful engaging drivers and guides,and not only in Sri Lanka.

May I ask what else you did about the aggressive behaviour warning you have posted here?

You will have the company's information, driver's full name, Tourist Board registration [ if registered]. Possibly a more effective action longer term would be to report this driver to the company, the Tourist Board and, if the behaviour warranted it, to the Tourist Police.

Unfortunately reports such as yours have been cropping up seemingly more often lately.

Thanks again, for posting. It's not too late to add more weight to your warning by contacting those mentioned above. Please think about it.

hi, yes i reported him to his company, but his boss didn't seem to care and they were sniggering and talking in their language. I posted this because i don't want someone else to have their trip spoiled(as it tainted ours), the Sri lankan people are lovely friendly people, he was just a bad one.I didn't think of letting the tourist board know, but i will now.
