We had a 10 day trip with Esala in November 2022 and can highly recommend him as driver and tour guide for your trip in Sri Lanka.
When we first got in contact he helped us to improve our itinerary to how it made most sense. He also helped to include some further places and activities according to our preferences. He has a very good knowledge of the places and had always some hotels and restaurants to suggest. Throughout the journey, he was very flexible in adapting the route and timetable to our needs. We liked that a lot so we could always decide on the go what was coming next. Furthermore, he was always available and on time to pick us up when it was agreed.
He also has never let us down. When there was an issue with his car (a monkey fell onto the wind shield) he has found immediately a solution and we could continue our tour with a replacement car which was then exchanged after the repair of the wind shield on the next day.
Esala is not only an experienced driver but also a very knowledgeable and certified tour guide who brought us closer to the country and the people. Through him we learnt a lot about Sri Lanka and it’s people and he never got tired of answering our questions that we had while exploring the country.
If you want a seamless nice holiday in Sri Lanka, Esala is your guy without a doubt!
