We travelled to Sri Lanka in March, 2019 as a family of six adults. It was our first visit to Sri Lanka, and our driver Dilee met us bright and early on day one with a big smile and a big, air conditioned van 🙂
Over the next six days we explored some amazing sights in such a beautiful country, some of which were planned in advance, with his itinerary suggestions, but there were some lovely surprises thrown in along the way.
Dilee has fantastic local knowledge, he is clearly a lover of nature and was only too happy to point out things as we travelled. His ‘eagle eye’ for birds and animals, whilst being a safe and excellent driver, has to be seen to be believed! We stopped for fruit and coconuts, and elephants 🙂
Communication before and during the trip was easy using WhatsApp. Dilee was always on time, and had a smile on his face when we were not!
His English is excellent, as is his sense of humour, which helps when asking for another loo stop! He knows all the best ones too 🙂
We all had a fantastic time with Dilee, he really did make the holiday for us. I would recommend him to anyone. In fact we were all sad when our trip was over and we waved him down the road!
If anyone from the UK does book with Dilee in the future (and you really should!), he loves Dolly Mixtures. He’s a real Kandy Boy 🙂
