Nimal, is a very good driver and tour guide in Srilanka .he is very well versed, he knows his homeland well, knows a lot about the country, people, history, flora and fauna. He is nimble, translates travel ideas of the customers to the fullest satisfaction. He knows people everywhere. In between a coconut drink for refreshment during a break. He is always nice, friendly and very warm, happy and always on good mood. He is always on time, the pick up at the airport worked well and the transfer to the coast too. On the way still short sightseeing in Colombo including a visit in the national museum. Good tips for changing money, everything at Nimal possible. A real all-rounder. His prices are fair and moderate. Also his car is secure and clean. He is a very good driver. I can only recommend Nimal as a travel guide for Srilanka. Friends to me, they was travelling many times with him and they are every time so happy and lucky. He knows every region from north to south, from west to the east side very well, even adams peack, even the jaffna region.

My wife and I had Nimal as our driver for a 1 week tour from Negombo to Tangalle via Dambulla Caves, Sigiriya, Kandy, Kaudulla National Park, Nuwara Eliya and Ella. Nimal is a great driver. He is punctual, careful and caring of his guests. He is happy to be lead by what the clients want but also had good suggestions as to what attractions are worth visiting or not. He is good company in the car and we got a lot more out of our time because of his knowledge and explanations of life in Sri Lanka. We felt very well looked after by him. Highly recommended.

Nimal was really nice and punctual! Always up for a chat, even if it's early in the morning. Thanks for the trip!

We travelled with our three little kids (5, 3, 3) through Sri Lanka. Nimal waited for us at the airport with flowers and fresh water and drove us calmly through the crazy traffic to our first hotel. Later we went on a five day trip to Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Ella, Matara and Bentota. Even though it was a long trip we could relax completely - Nimal took care of everything! The tour he planned for us was awesome. He is not only a very safe driver but is also full of knowledge about the country, its people and its culture. He seems to know somebody pretty much anywhere you go and creates experiences and direct contacts with people you wouldn't be able to make on your own. His ability to organize is impressive! A kid is tired? A couple of minutes later there is a pillow under its head. You didn't get a ticket for a seat on the train? He makes a phone call, tells you where to get on the train and there's a guy on the train giving up his seat for you. Hungry in the middle of nowhere? He will make somebody cook a meal for you! He is very attentive and realizes when you need some time to relax and when you are ready for the next experience.
His only goal seems to be to give you the best possible experience of Sri Lanka...
We (and the kids) miss Nimal already and we are looking forward to seeing him again soon!
Thanks, Nimal!
