We chanced upon Krishna and his wonderful service in Nuwara Eliya.

Krishna is an ambitious young man with big plans. He told us that he started with a small tuk tuk, and then took some tour guiding courses, got a driver's license, took more advanced English classes and upgraded to a minivan. He subsequently trained 2 other drivers, and now runs a small taxi company. The van he picked us up in was quite nice, though it did not have airco or seat belts in the back. He explained that he has another van which has all the amenities, but that one of his drivers took it on a long trip with another customer.

Long story short, Krishna is lovely, helpful and trustworthy; and is a good, safe driver who knows the area well, and speaks English well. He aspires to build a large transportation service and we are quite sure he will achieve his goal. He told us that he is proud of what he has achieved so-far, and is especially pleased with the many positive reviews he has received on TripAdvisor. He clearly aims to please and to continue to build his good reputation. We are only too happy to add our 2-cents worth! The Strauses

Had a really great afternoon tour with Krishna Murthy. Everything was fine, we had delicious local food and superb chats about local stuff. Hope your dreams come true - Krishna Murthy!

Book this guy - it is worth it. :-)

Had a wonderful experience with Krishna Murthy during the tour to Nuwara Eliya. Me and my wife met him at Nanu Oya railway station, Srilanka, he was about to go for a return trip to Nuwara Eliya, he gave us a lift in his cab for just 500 LKR(Same as tuk tuk rate). His friendly and sincere nature made us good friends and we planned nextday outing with him in his cab in the surroundings of Nuwara Eliya, for which he charged only the standard charge(All other cab drivers whoever I met asked 1500 to 3000 more than what he said at first time for the same places to visit in Nuwara Eliya :-)).

During the one day tour with him, due to heavy cold at Horton Plains, we asked him to return back without visiting whole area of Horton Plains, for which he reduced an amount of 1000 LKR(remember, this is without any request from our-side) from what we agreed on morning(what a person he is :-)).

Later at evening, he also booked 1st class train ticket for us from Nanu Oya, back to Colombo(we were about to leave hotel to take ticket, since he is already going to Nanu Oya with some other customers, he agreed to take tickets for us, which made us happy and hence we stayed back at hotel and took rest till late night) and he took us back to Nanu Oya railway station for cheap price at late night.

You don't want to think twice if you are travelling with this kind of personality, which is rare to see anywhere in the world.

Me and my friend travelled to Sri Lanka for the first time in March and were lucky enough to meet Krishna by chance when we arrived at the train station for Nuwara Eliya from Kandy and we were very lucky to have found him! Krishna is so friendly and such a pleasure to travel with - he drove us to the Heritance Tea Factory and then all the way to Yala, stopping at Ella on the way, so we probably spent at least 9 hours with him. He is a very good driver which set us at ease as we drove through the very long windy roads through the mountains on the way to Yala. His van is huge and has reclining seats and a foot rest so it was a comfortable journey the whole way down to Yala - he also has great Sri Lankan music which he played which just made the whole journey even more of an experience! Krishna loves movies and it was enjoyable to be able to chat with him - his English is great which is nice if you are on a long journey. He made our first trip to Sri Lanka a memorable one and I would very highly recommend Krishna if you are looking for a driver and a friend! :-)
