Colombo to Kandy in 1 Amazing Day with a Local

Four of us took the Kandy tour with Prassana in his Toyota Hi-ace. The vehicle was very comfortable for such a long journey. Collection from our hotel was prompt. The tour itself was good even though it was very busy owing to it being a bank holiday. We ate local food at a local restaurant which was very nice. Prassana was knowledgeable, polite and a good and safe driver. The journey back was very long because of the traffic. The only suggestion would be to include more of a walk around the old town to fully take in the town's character.

Thank you Prasanna for such an incredible day! You went above and beyond to show us a great time! In such busy traffic - your driving was great, very safe! If anyone wants to see Kandy for a day, then Prasanna is the go to person! Full of knowledge and puts his customers first! Thank you again!!
