We had a great time and go back to our country with a lot of new experiences and many nice memories. We are very satisfied with Krishantha both as a driver and a guide. We have all the time felt safe in his hands as a very skilled driver and facilitator at places we have visited. Very helpful and kind. Every hotel has been ok with Cinnamon Citadel on top with a very nice room and very nice and attentive personal. The Galle Face hotel and Grand Hotel also very nice with their atmosphere from the old days in a comparable modern way. The safety of the tour was always good. Good driver and comfortable car. Always on time. The train trip was “exotic” and an interesting part of our journey.
