Taxi airport to Sigiriya

Anyone taken a taxi from the airport to Sigiriya? My wife and I have been told to book one through the hotel in Sigiriya, is that the best idea? Going to Sri Lanka for the first time next month so advice would be welcome.

Hi there,

Just take from the airport desks, these should be cheaper (but not faster). Cost still around Rs 14,000 and 5 hours ride...

All the best,

We hired a taxi for friends from Sigiriya to the airport and that cost Rs17000. We had to negotiate down from Rs20,000 asked. Could be easier coming from the airport.

Thanks Archie, having been to Morocco I think I'm practised at haggling - thanks for the tip.

I'm also heading to Sigiriya upon arrival. if you Google "colombo airport taxi" the results will show a couple of companies offering CMB-Sigiriya for 11,000-13,000.
