A customized trip with Dulshan

Dulshan is probably the best „thing“ that can happen to you during your stay in Sri Lanka. He planned our tour exactly how we wanted it to be and we did this very spontaneous (at the moment we met). The whole tour was just perfect! Would we book Dulshan again? Absolutely! Dulshan is a friendly, funny and great guy with a lot of historical knowledge about Sri Lanka and can explain everything. His car is new, clean and got A/C.
As mentioned: all perfect!

Colombo to Kandy in 1 Amazing Day with a Local

4 of us had a great 8-hour private tour with Prasanna. We had a little trouble finding his van outside the port area since people inside the port gave us wrong directions and since our ship did not offer a shuttle to the port gate. The app WhatsApp saved the day, though!!

After we found him (or he found us), we piled into his huge clean van and set out. We asked to visit an obscure location and didn’t have an address but he found it and we had a great time there. We also wanted to visit the National Museum (1000 rupees per adult and there’s a reputable ATM in the parking lot) and that place was great. Prasanna took us to other sights as well and after a delicious 1990 rupees per person curry buffet at Raja Bojun (a menu is also available if you are not interested in trying Sri Lankan foods) we were very tired and asked to visit a supermarket on the way back to the ship. We bought water, sodas and beer. (The beer was confiscated by port security.... We’re still laughing about it!) It was a great day and Prasanna is a very good guide and driver.

Colombo in March is very hot so bring lots of water. One of the temples charged 300 rupees or USD$2 per person so also bring small bills if you don’t have rupees.

We were so impressed by Colombo and Prasanna that we want to return to Sri Lanka to see more of this beautiful, clean, calm country.

Camping Experience & Scenic Hike in Wangedigala Mountain

My friend and I spent 2 days with Sam and our minibus driver. The four of us basically took on a big chunk of Sri Lanka driving and hiking. More than a guide, Sam became a close friend.

Something about Sam and so many of the Sri Lankan people i came across is: genuine kindness. One touching moment, at the end of our trip, we were waiting for the train to come to take us to Ella -- the train was late, over an hour late, and Sam sat with us the entire time making sure we got on the train and on our way safely. Wow. Thank you Sam.

During the hikes, my body isn't the most suited for this kind of exercise. But Sam was perfect. I didn't feel pressured to go faster than I wanted. And I didn't feel like he was annoyed when I would take long. Very understanding and gentle experience. I loved it -- and now I'm in love with hiking and want to do more! Thanks Sam.

If you love hiking -- Sam is your man!
Thank you for a wonderful 2 days Sam.
