We would highly recommend hiring Tharindu as a driver. He picked us up from the airport at 6:00 AM and drove us to Sigiriya. He is super friendly, we had the chance to chat a lot about the culture of Sri Lanka on the ride. He offered us advice and also helped us exchanging money, doing some shopping on the way and getting a sim card. He has a clean sedan (Honda) with AC.
Tharindu was coordinated by Shehani, who was in touch with us all the time, making sure everything was alright. She was a huge help for in this trip, gave us what we later learned a great price for the ride and also went above and beyond to help us secure tickets from Kandy to Ella by train in super high season! We really appreciate it! Thank you so much for everything! 🙂
