Based on a recommendation from a friend we selected Ceylon Escapes for a 16-day tour of Sri Lanka. From the moment Sunil picked us up from the busy Colombo airport we felt as if we were in the hands of an old family friend showing us around beautiful Sri Lanka. Sunil was a wonderful driver he was safe on the busy roads of Sri Lanka, knowledgeable, reliable, punctual, flexible and went out of his way to cater for our needs. His knowledge of the tourism industry was a bonus as he bought us tickets to the major tourist attracts, helped bridge any language barriers and would always buy us snacks or drinks when he thought we would like to try Sri Lankan specialties. Sunil was easy to be with over such a long trip, gauging when we were chatty and when we needed quiet time. He had excellent command of the English language, had a good sense of humour and was perfect for our tour of Sri Lanka and as an added bonus he acted as a wonderful tour guide throughout our journey from Dambulla to Ella, Yala, Tangalle, Galle, Weligama and back to Colombo. He pointed out all the major sites, stopped for pictures and made sure to take us to the local restaurants, street venders and unique parts of the country that you would miss without local knowledge. It is those little things like this made this trip the easiest we have ever done. I would strongly recommend both Sunil and Ceylon Escapes for your trip to Sri Lanka.
