Sajith from shade tours was an amazing driver for my boyfriend and I’s 7 day Sri Lankan tour. We are both from the United States. He picked us up from the airport in Colombo and drove us through our grueling schedule of Colombo to Dambulla to Kandy to Nuwara Eliya to Ella to Udawalwe park and back to Colombo.
Sajith was very quick to reply to all of my inquiries and patient in answering my many questions. I was a little nervous about booking online but Sajith was absolutely amazing. Sajith was always prompt (aka at least 10 minutes early!) to pick us up and very professional. His car (white toyota) was clean, well maintained and definitely enough room for just the two of us. Sajith was a very safe, cautious driver and always followed speed limits.
Sajith was also very knowledgeable about the places and landmarks we visited. He even recommended some additional stops such as Nalanda Gedige and spice gardens which were not on our radar but ended up being some of our favorite spots. He also customized his recommendations to what we liked (lots of hiking!) and even joined us on some hikes. Sajith also introduced us to some local cuisine and customs (even gifting us his wedding photos!).
Sajith went above and beyond to make our trip comfortable. He knew about road closures and helped coordinate our pick ups and drop off for activities in the local language. Sajith was the perfect driver to introduce us to Sri Lanka and would definitely recommend him to anyone considering a Sri Lanka trip.
