12th to 26th of November, 2018
When my partner and I first contacted Amazing Sunshine Holidays, we were very glad to receive very quick responses and very good suggestions to plan our itinerary and book our hotels, as it was our first visit to Sri Lanka and wanted to make the most out of it. We modified our itinerary a few times, and Shan, our driver, was very patient, kind and helpful. At the same time, his quote included all the expenses (no hidden fees at the end!). So, with Shan’s help, we were ready and excited to start our 14 days adventure.
Since day 1, Shan became the 3rd member of our amazing trip. While visiting great places across 14 days including Polonaruwa, Kandy, Ella, Yala, Mirissa among others, he made sure that we not only had a great time but we got the best that Sri Lanka can offer.
With him, we discovered the amazing local cuisine, culture, religion and even learned some phrases and words in Sinhala!
Shan was very flexible when we changed plans last minute because of the weather or our need, he was also great at recommending new routes or places to enjoy the local cuisine.
The car was very comfortable, clean and the AC was very appreciated!
We cannot forget to mention his skills as: Car DJ, photographer, hotel and restaurant hunter and sense of humour.
All in all, Shan is a great person, good and safe driver and guide ready to go above and beyond, we could not have asked for a better host in our first but not last trip to Sri Lanka. He even helped out at organising a great surprise birthday celebration, including spontaneous English cricket fans singing Happy Birthday with us!!!
We will definitely miss you my friend!
