Seeking Taxi Service for the day in Colombo

Greetings! I will be going to Colombo next week. I would be grateful if anyone out there could recommend a good cab service that provides reasonable rates for rental of car with driver for a whole day. Would anybody out there have contact details?

Currently one tour company in Colombo has informed me that their charges are US$55 for a van(for 4 persons) per day for 10 hours or 100 km. Any additional hour is US$4.00 or any additional km is US$0.40 per km.

Is this reasonable?

Thank you for replying.

Yes, that is reasonable.

I had used Malkeys car rental for 9 days which charged me LKR 5500 per day for 100 km / 8hrs for a Toyota Prius. If you have determined the places you want to visit in Colombo then calling a radio cab for a point to point drop within the city or negotiating with a tuk-tuk would also work.
