We booked a 3-day trip with Sudarshan in March 2019, from Colombo to Dambulla, Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa and finally Kandy.
On the first day we were a little nervous – would our driver show up at our hotel in Colombo?… Thankfully, Sudarshan was perfectly on time and greeted us with a warm smile, so we were able to set off just as planned.
The car advertised was a Toyota Prius, but Sudarshan had just upgraded to a new Honda hybrid – similar to the Prius but higher-end (including a leather interior). The car was very clean and well maintained.
Sudarshan was friendly and good-humoured throughout. He told us interesting things about Sri Lanka but also gave us peace and quiet when he could see we needed a nap during the journey.
Near Polonnaruwa, Sudarshan took us to an amazing place for lunch – home cooked, home grown Sri Lankan food cooked in clay pots using wood smoke. An unforgettable meal!
Overall, we’re very happy that we selected Sudarshan as our driver and are happy to recommend him to other travellers.
