While searching for a driver for our 3-week trip through Sri Lanka we found this online platform on the internet. From here we received about 15 offers from different drivers for our planned route. At first the choice seemed difficult, but Rohan was sympathetic to us from the beginning. Even before we had decided for him, he answered even the hundredth question extremely patiently and friendly. So we finally decided for him also because of the good reviews on tripadvisor, on Facebook and on Google. That must have been fate, because with him we experienced the best round trip we could have imagined!

There were three of us on the way and although we had large luggage we all had enough space in Rohan’s car. The car is very well maintained and every morning it was beaming with the sun. He always navigated us safely through the chaotic traffic (from a german point of view). He is an exceptionally good and circumspect driver, who with his driving style even makes it possible to take a nap or two in the car.

In fact Rohan is more than “just” a driver for us. He quickly became part of our journey – just as we had imagined. Nevertheless, he was always unobtrusive.
Always punctual, Rohan not only took us to the right places, but also made sure that we arrived there at the right time. For example, we were able to avoid queues and excessive heat when climbing Sigiriya Rock. Also for our safaris in Uda Walawe as well as in Wilpattu National Park it was worth getting up early!

Quite at the beginning there was a birthday on our side, which he found out about by chance late the evening before. The next morning Rohan appeared at the hotel with a birthday cake and a German birthday song (music box)! We were incredibly suprised! By the way, the cake was delicious!

Rohan is a sincere, attentive, patient, intelligent and humorous person. At the same time he is pleasantly reserved.
After a few days, he had developed a perfect feeling for which activities and excursions might suit us and which might not. We enjoyed a very individual and personalized trip without “being talked into something”.
Also for our hobby, photography, Rohan always had a suitable view point at hand, where he waited patiently until we had taken the very last shot. Thank you, Rohan!
In the end we could even take the train to Nuwara Eliya (Nano Oya) because Rohan made the impossible possible. He organized train tickets with seating for a train that had been fully booked for weeks.

To be honest, it’s not easy to put these fantastic 3 weeks into words, because Rohan turned from a driver to a friend we could blindly rely on. He turned our holiday into a fantastic journey with so many incredible impressions, fantastic encounters and excellent food. We laughed so much and even had the honour to meet his family. We have a saying that you always see each other at least twice in your life. Rohan, we are already looking forward to seeing you again!

Auf der Suche nach einem Fahrer für unsere 3-wöchige Tour durch Sri Lanka sind wir auf diese Online Plattform im Internet gestoßen. Wir haben hier für unsere geplante Route rund 15 Angebote von verschiedenen Fahrern erhalten. Zunächst erschien uns die Auswahl schwierig, aber Rohan war uns von Anfang an sympathisch. Noch bevor wir uns für ihn entschieden hatten, beantwortete auch die hundertste Nachfrage immer äußerst geduldig und freundlich. So haben wir uns auch aufgrund der guten Bewertungen auf tripadvisor, bei Facebook und bei Google schlussendlich für ihn entschieden. Das muss Schicksal gewesen sein, denn wir erlebten mit ihm die beste Rundreise, die wir uns hätten vorstellen können!

Wir waren zu dritt unterwegs und hatten trotz großem Gepäck alle ausreichend Platz in Rohans Auto. Das Auto ist sehr gepflegt und es strahlte jeden Morgen mit der Sonne um die Wette. Er navigierte uns immer sicher durch den strubbeligen Verkehr. Er ist ein außergewöhnlicher guter und umsichtiger Fahrer, der es mit seiner Fahrweise sogar ermöglicht im Auto das ein oder andere Nickerchen zu machen.

Rohan ist für uns allerdings mehr als „nur“ ein Fahrer. Er wurde schnell Teil unserer Reise – genau so wie wir uns das vorgestellt hatten. Dabei war er dennoch stets unaufdringlich.
Immer pünktlich brachte Rohan uns nicht nur zu den richtigen Orten, sondern sorgte auch dafür, dass wir dort zum richtigen Zeitpunkt erschienen. So konnten wir zum Bespiel Warteschlangen und übermäßiger Hitze beim Erklimmen vom Sigiriya Rock entgehen. Auch für unsere Safaris im Uda Walawe sowie im Wilpattu Nationalpark hat sich das frühe Aufstehen gelohnt!

Relativ zu Beginn gab es einen Geburtstag auf unserer Seite, von dem er zufällig spät am Vorabend erfuhr. Am nächsten Morgen erschien Rohan mit Geburtstagstorte und deutschem Geburtstagsständchen (Musikbox) im Hotel! Die Torte war übrigens köstlich!

Rohan ist ein aufrichtiger, aufmerksamer, geduldiger, intelligenter und humorvoller Mensch. Dabei ist er gleichzeitig angenehm zurückhaltend.
Nach ein paar Tagen hatte er ein perfektes Gespür entwickelt, welche Aktivitäten und Ausflüge zu uns passen könnten und welche eben nicht. Wir genossen damit eine äußerst individuell auf uns abgestimmte Reise ohne dabei das Gefühl zu haben „etwas aufgeschwatzt zu bekommen“.
Auch für unser Hobby, das Fotografieren, hatte Rohan immer einen passenden Aussichtspunkt parat, an dem er dann geduldig wartete bis wir die letzte Aufnahme im Kasten hatten. Danke, Rohan!
Wir konnten schlussendlich sogar mit dem Zug nach Nuwara Eliya (Nano Oya) fahren, weil Rohan das Unmögliche möglich machte. Er besorgte Zugfahrtickets mit Sitzplätzen für einen bereits seit Wochen ausgebuchten Zug.

Um ehrlich zu sein ist es gar nicht so einfach diese fantastischen 3 Wochen in Worte zu fassen, denn Rohan wurde für uns vom Fahrer zum Freund auf den wir uns blind verlassen konnten. Er machte unseren Urlaub zu einer traumhaften Reise mit so unglaublich vielen tollen Eindrücken, fantastischen Begegnungen und hervorragendem Essen. Wir haben so viel gelacht und hatten sogar die Ehre seine Familie kennenlernen zu dürfen. Wir haben ein Sprichwort, das besagt, dass man sich im Leben immer mindestens zweimal sieht. Rohan, wir freuen uns schon jetzt auf unser Wiedersehen!
