We hired Jagath and his mini-van for almost 2 weeks. We were travelling with another family making a total of 9 people. Jagath’s van is spacious enough to take all the passengers as well as the big luggage while we moved from one place to another every 2 days or so.
What makes Jagath exceptional is his knowledge of Sri Lankan history as well as his very good level of English that made it easier to communicate and understand each other. Jagath also went out of his way to make sure we were not ripped off by local shops. He gave us pointers on how to get the best prices and where to go. We enjoy sampling the local culture and food and Jagath took us to a few places that definitely enriched this experience. He is also a very careful driver and manages the crazy driving conditions with ease and comfort to the passengers.
At the time of booking, it was stated that there are no hidden charges and true to his word, there were none whatsoever. The price we agreed on included absolutely everything, petrol, his meals and accommodation, insurance. Of course, this does not include any entrance fees to any of the sites.
Jagath’s service did not end at the airport, he even checked that we were all safely home via WhatsApp. Really good guy and truly honest. A very good representation of the Sri Lankan people in general.
If you’re looking for a driver/guide on this website, look no further, pick Jagath and you will not have any regrets.
