We booked Prasanna Lal of Fantasy Lanka Tours for a two week trip starting in Colombo then we headed to Habarana as a base for the ancient cities. From there we stayed in Kandy, Hatton (to do Adam’s peak), Ella, Yala, Tangalle, Weligama bay, Galle and Bentota. We were warmly welcomed at the airport by Prasanna who was holding a sign with our names and given flower garlands, we got to the car and there were cold waters awaiting us. The car had loads of space for our big packpacks and hand luggage and we travelled in the backseats, loads of space there too especially considering we are both over 6ft. Prasanna was a fun and happy person to spend time with and very knowledgeable about all things Sri Lanka as he has been driving for over 10 years now. Everyday he gave us water in the car, would offer to stop for suggested photo spots or stop when we wanted to stop. He got us to try local food and showed us where things were growing or pointed out wildlife. He told us loads about Sri Lankan culture and always knew where to stop for food. We had to total flexibility and even changed our plans slightly during the trip which Prasanna just adapted to no problem. We could not have asked for more, a genuinely nice driver who was always happy and made our holiday. He knew exactly who to book our safaris with and whale watching and what time to go to places to avoid tourists / peak times. He has to be the best driver and we 100% recommend him to anyone!
