My wife and I booked Chamee for a 21 day tour around Sri Lanka for our honeymoon and had an amazing time!
We’re typically independent travellers so were quite ‘picky’ when looking through the list of drivers on the site. We wanted someone who was into the outdoors and hiking, was passionate about safaris and could give us an authentic insight into Sri Lanka – Chamee did not disappoint!
We undertook two safaris, one at Yalah and another at Wilpattu. He has great contacts for jeeps given he has worked with many professional wildlife photographers. Chamee spotted a leopard, sloth bear and heaps of elephants for us – it was truly unforgettable!
He also took us out to the Knuckles Mountain Range and lead us on hikes to some epic view points. If you’re into the outdoors, Chamee is a great pick.
Early on, Chamee realised we wanted to eat authentic Sri Lankan food and took us to local restaurants. He had us eating with our hands from the first meal – it definitely tastes better – and made sure we enjoyed the full breadth of Sri Lankan cuisine.
Sri Lanka feels extremely safe, but some people may be a little concerned given recent events. The good news is Chamee is also a professional bodyguard with a decorated military record and first aid training.
We had a couple of hotels we booked online fall through but Chamee had found us new accommodation within only 15-20 mins and we were always happy with his recommendations. If you do have some accommodation options in mind, it’s worth having Chamee book them for you as he was able to secure discounts when we booked through him.
Being a honeymoon, Chamee gave us enough space but was always on hand if we needed him. He’s also a great bloke to have chat with over a beer or arrack should you want!
Honestly, we couldn’t be happier with our decision to travel with Chamee. No matter what level of experience or service you’re after, we have no doubt he’ll be able to accommodate.
