Target price would be around Rs 6,000. Can't help with a company, sorry...

All the best,

Why you start on Colombo Fort with taxi? You could go by bus or partly by train.

I guess you mean Hikkaduwa ?

There are many taxi services that operate in Colombo. Including Colombo cabs, Kangaroo cabs, City Cabs, etc. All of them charge about 45Rs per km. (Non AC)

So, Hikkaduwa being 85km, you are looking at something between 4000-5000Rs one way. You can call and arrange. If you are looking for an AC sedan then price would be around 65 Rupees per km. So, maximum you would spend from fort to Hikkaduwa should not exceed 6000Rs.

Couple of taxi services I know. You can get numbers inside
