Thank you fo an unforgetable trip, It was great to have you as our guide/driver. We enjoyed your great sence of humor.
We booked a car and driver (Rowan) through Ceylon Escapes for an 18 day tour of the island. Both people we dealt with by email and phone at the Agency (Rebekah and Alex) were helpful, professional and prompt with replies. We were sceptical at first as I could not find any reviews of the company as the business is only new. Don’t let this put you off. Through choice we managed our own itinerary and accommodation and Rowan always found his way, sometimes up muddy roads to our guest house or hotel.
Once when our choice was inappropriate, Rowan took us to something much better in the same price range. Rowan was the best driver – safe, knowledgeable, reliable, punctual, flexible and went out of his way to cater for our needs. He was easy to be with over such a long trip – gauging when we were chatty and when we needed quiet time. Rowan has lived and worked overseas, speaks excellent English, has a good sense of humour and was perfect for our tour of Sri Lanka. The car had wifi, was comfortable and always immaculately clean.
Rowan only took us to places we wanted to go or suggested places he knew would not rip us off. He even gave us the commission he was given at a gem factory we insisted on going to. His knowledge of the tourism industry was a bonus in many ways – he bought our train tickets and put us on the train to Nuwara Eliya before Kandy so we would have a better chance of getting a seat. He would always buy us little snacks or drinks when he thought we would like to try Sri Lankan specialties or when he felt we could do with an energy boost. Little things like this made this trip the easiest we have ever done. I would strongly recommend both Rowan and Ceylon Escapes for your trip to Sri Lanka.
