What you can expect

Do you want to see beautiful elephants, understand their rituals, get a good feeling of the Sri Lankan countryside and get the help of a local through the more touristic places?

My 1 day tour give you just that: a morning filled with elephants related activities (milk feeding, bath, elephant ride), a cultural afternoon with visiting temples and the most popular botanical garden in Sri Lanka and a lovely evening with a traditional Kandyan dance.

The Lankathilaka ancient temple is one of the places we'll see in our tour, it's a wonderful creation typical to the Sinhalese architecture. It has been built out of clay bricks and is believed to be as big as five stores. The most common decorations are flowers, animals, birds and statues of Gods.

Let's explore this beautiful part of Sri Lanka together, shall we?

My name is Dushan, but everyone just calls me Platy. I was born in 1983, married with Sonali. My wife is working for the Government. My daughter Thinuri was born in 2013. I am a practicing Buddhist from Kandy, the world heritage city.

In 2002 I started my hospitality career with a diploma from the Ceylon Hotel School & School of Tourism. I worked for 7 years in the guest service sector in Sri Lanka and abroad in the United Arab Emirates.

I am a tourist-driver for more than 5 years. I have a lot of experience in driving through Sri Lanka and I know all interesting and secret places in my country. It would be my pleasure to be your personal guide to Sri Lanka!"
