We had an outstanding 7 tour day with Manju around Sri Lanka. Our trip started in Colombo and we drove to Sigiriya, Ella, Udawalawe, Hambantota, and through the coast to Galle then back to Colombo airport.
Our driver Manju was fantastic. We planned our itinerary prior to the trip and he followed it exactly to our requirements. He was always punctual and flexible with requested changes on itinerary/pick up times, etc. He also supplemented with providing suggestions along the way and recommended some good restaurants, etc. He also helped with booking extra parts of the tour such as Safari Trip and Whale Watching in Mirrisa. This made the trip so convenient.
Manju is more than a driver. He is also a great guide and came with us to provide additional information and support such as hiking and help taking our photos! He also could accommodate any request we had such as finding special shops to buy gifts, help to get SIM card, etc. As he says, ‘Anything is possible’.
We travelled in a black Toyota Prius. It was very comfortable for the two of us and Manju is a safe driver. If have more than 3 people the Prius may be a bit small but for 2 or 3 people it’s perfect. We didn’t have any additional hidden charges (eg highway tolls) as the tour was all inclusive and good value in our opinion. We just paid $20 USD extra for Manju to drop of us off directly at the airport.
Overall, I strongly recommend Manju to make your Sri Lanka trip perfect. Getting around by yourself would be more costly and not as comfortable. I recommend you book Manju and you will not have any regrets.
