December 2019/January 2020; 11 days; full circle of island
I booked directly with Shan based on the recommendation of a friend. Don’t settle for anyone else! He is an absolute gem.
Communication before the trip was via WhatsApp and then we made changes to the itinerary via email. He was super flexible in adding things and removing things based on my interests (a lot of tea!). He recommended hotels and they all turned out to be good (some great, some OK…but all acceptable). I had a flight change that added a day at the last minute and he was super flexible and accommodated that. Really first rate!
During the trip, Shan was professional and friendly and super safe! He shared so much about his life and experiences and I even got to meet his beautiful family for dinner. Driving in Sri Lanka is a bit crazy, but I NEVER felt unsafe. Shan drove so well. The car was clean and the AC was strong!
Shan was always on time and we made some changes on the fly that were great. He communicated the plan for the day, so I knew what to expect.
Restaurants he selected were great. I’m sitting in the airport transit hotel and *knock on wood* I never experienced any stomach issues. He was always asking if I was hungry or needed anything and was flexible if I said I wanted to skip dinner and just eat some biscuits/fruit in the room that night.
If you want someone who is safe, fun, friendly, and a great human being…then book Shan! And hurry, he fills up fast. I booked 8 months in advance.
