On the first day Sanju picked us up in Tea Trails Hotel near Hatton and took us to Yala. It was a long journey with difficult driving conditions but Sanju managed this very well and got us there safely with some stops on the way for fresh coconuts, we even wanted some Alphonso Mangos and somehow Sanju was straight on the phone to his friends and managed to find us someone selling them fresh!
From Yala Sanju drove us to Cape Weligama and took us on some day trips to local beaches. One day we wanted to go to Hiriketiya which was about 1hr drive away but we weren’t sure if the weather was good as the forecast was saying Thunderstorms (can’t trust the weather forecast in Sri Lanka!). Again Sanju was on the phone to a friend living in Hiriketiya and confirmed that the weather was good so we set off on the journey and indeed the weather was amazing all day.
On the final day of our 8-day trip Sanju took us from Weligama to Colombo with a nice stop in Galle.
Overall the service was great, car was very clean, almost new and very comfortable (4×4 Nissan X-Trail) which was important as we travelled on some bumpy dirt roads to the hotels – would definitely recommend!
