Amazing Sunshine Holidays – Fantastic Shan

We recently returned from a wonderful holiday in Sri Lanka where we contracted Amazing Sunshine Holidays to show us this amazingly beautiful island.
We had prebooked all our accommodation and had set out the general route we wished to take.
We stipulated an air conditioned vehicle and were allocated a Honda hybrid. This was very comfortable and always clean.
Our route took us from Colombo airport to Wilpattu wildlife sanctuary, to Aranadapura, Polonnaruwa, Siggiriya, Dambulla and Kandy. From Kandy we went to Nuwara Eliya, to Ella then on to Tangalle and finally a long drive back to Colombo.
Our driver was Shan, who must be one of the best guides in the country. He was always concerned about our comfort and welfare, showing us alternative attractions when our age limited some of the more strenuous activities (like hundreds of steps up to significant sites), and finding suitable rest stops along the way. He introduced us to a variety of restaurant types which served amazing food and always ensured that our special requests were attended to.
Shan’s command of English is very good and his ease of communicating with all the various accommodation owners/managers made our lives so easy, especially in areas where not much English was spoken.
We cannot speak highly enough of Shan’s capability as a driver and guide, his care and concern for our comfort and his cheerful personality. We will be recommending him to anyone we know who may be considering Sri Lankan holiday.
We started our trip with a guide and ended it with a new friend.
