Wow, what a beautiful holiday in Sri Lanka, thanks to our wonderful driver and guide Shan from Amazing Sunshine Holidays. We spent 16 days in July, 2019 touring around Sri Lanka staying at Negombo, Ella, Nuwara Eliya, Kandy, Sigiriya, Uppaveli and Anuradhapura. Although I arranged the accommodation, Shan helped us to tweak our itinerary to get the best possible holiday.
Shan always considered our wellbeing and safety as number one priority. He is a very careful driver and his car was very comfortable. His most concern that we were enjoying our trip.
We were very lucky to have chosen Shan, as he carefully vetted each place we stopped out, and making sure all was going well. He has an excellent knowledge of his country’s history and culture which he readily shared with us. My travelling companion is 74 years and Shan helped her personally to climb up and down waterfalls, peaks and stairs. He was very patient and considered her safety at all times. Shan suggested getting up early one morning at 5:00am to climb Pidurangala rock and see the sunrise. This was one of the highlights of my trip. The other being the safari to Kaudulla National Park to see the elephants which Shan had arranged for us.
We got to experience many things we wouldn’t have if we had not been with Shan. Shan is a great driver and guide and would highly recommend to anyone who would like the trip of their life to Sri Lanka.
