We did a 10 day Sri Lanka round trip in January 2023 with Manju, and it was absolutely perfect!
He picked us up from our Hotel in Bentota and in the following days we went together to Dambulla/Sigiriya, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Ella, the Yala national park, and he droped us finally in Mirissa.
Manju is an excellent driver and his car (Toyota Prius hybrid) is very comfortable. Usually in our holiday we used to drive by our own, but with Manju you don’t need to worry about organising your trip and you can enjoy Sri Lanka in a comfortable, local and individual way!
Since I am pregnant he planed the right amount of time. He was always very polite and patient, and even helped me hiking up hills, what I appreciated a lot ;)!
Whenever we wanted to change plans – e.g. doing the Horton plains additionally – it was no big deal to adapt flexibly to our wishes. For my boyfriends birthday he even arranged a surprising dinner with a birthday cake and song from the staff :D!
As he knew that my boyfriend was very interested in Sri Lankan food, Manju kept it always in mind. E.g. concerning our cookery class in Ella with Iranga – which we highly recommend as it was fabulous! – he and Iranga surprised us with an additional small cooking action and kottu roti meal!
Another great trip we had was to the Diyaluma waterfall, an amazing experience to be on the top with this great view and to take a cold bath all together in the natural pools up there!
Manju is a great guy – cool, extraordinary friendly and open minded – and he fulfilled every wish that we had! He has a good balance between guiding and providing free time to enjoy the trip. We experienced the beauty of Sri Lanka and it’s variety in nature, food, and friendly people throughout the whole journey.
We ourselves fortunately got the recommendation to contact Lanka I Leisure from a friend of mine, and now we also can just highly recommend this great experience with Manju who made it very special to us!
Thanks a lot Manju 🙂 !
