When we decided to visit Sri Lanka for 08 days friends suggested we should contact Shan from Amazing Sunshine Holidays (as he had arranged their recent Sri Lankan trip). Shan suggested a fantastic itinerary and accommodation options which we reviewed and amended slightly to meet our needs.
The cost was very reasonable and included a full-time driver Dilshan (Brother of Shan) A very new clean fully air conditioned car including a scenic train trip (I have to mention that I have tried to book train tickets online but it is a hard work and this company offer and take responsible with train ticket booking also we got observation gallery tickets which was the best!) , an elephant safari (Which was brilliant!).
Our driver, Dilshan (one of the best drivers in Sri Lanka) was so much more than just a driver – he was also an excellent and knowledgeable tour guide, our own personal translator, bought us delicious local food (king coconut, kottu, curd and treacle, short eats and more – all super delicious) Dilshan was very punctual on every day, supportive, flexible with our every request.
Sri Lanka is a stunningly beautiful and diverse country (and still relatively unspoiled) and although not very large there is soooo much to see and do – and eat! The food is spectacular – fresh fruits, rice and curry! We absolutely loved our holiday there but unfortunately, 10 days was just not long enough, so guess we’ll be back – and when we do we’ll definitely be contacting Shan to arrange our next trip.
Thank you Shan, Dilshan, and your incredibly gorgeous company, for making us feel so welcome in your beautiful country.
