    Using Sri Lanka Driver Hire on our recent trip to Sri Lanka was the best decision we made when planning our trip. We booked them to collect us from Colombo airport and to drive us for the next 7 days taking in Sigiriya, Kandy, Ella, Mirissa, Galle, Bentota and a couple of extra stops suggested by them along the way.

    Our driver, Anees, was exceptional. He was friendly, informative, flexible, courteous, kind…I could go on. The car very spacious, always kept clean and tidy. Along the way Anees made great recommendations and listened to our requests and wishes. A 5-star experience and invaluable in the chaos of the Sri Lankan roads.

    Mr. Ikram (owner) gave quick and clear answers to all my questions before my Sri Lanka trip. Everything he said was true. I completed my 7 days private trip without any problems. It allowed me to travel cleanly and safely in the car. It allows me to go wherever I want safely and unconditionally. Mr. Haniyas is friendly, helpful and reliable. He told me everything I needed to know. He always stood by me for my safety and comfort throughout my journey. I completed my trip without any problems. I wish it was possible to travel all over the world with this company 🙂 It is not possible to describe the memories I had here with words. You can choose with confidence.

    We had an incredible experience with Sri Lanka Driver Hire. Romesh our driver was knowledgeable, experienced, friendly and made us feel very safe for our first time travelling in Sri Lanka. He also organised a site guide in Polonnaruwa cultural place, making our trip stress free and making sure we got the best experience. Romesh was also available whenever we needed him or wanted to drive somewhere, and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable during our travelling. He also gave great advice on restaurants to eat, sightseeing and taught us a great deal about Sri Lankan culture.

    The Car was clean, comfortable and spacious. The car also had working Wi-Fi so we never got bored during the long drives. Not only did we have an incredible driver, Ikram (owner of the company) also provided 24/7 support via WhatsApp and was available whenever we needed him. I couldn’t have asked for a better driving experience! We will definitely be using Romesh from Sri Lanka Driver Hire, again when we come back to Sri Lanka.

    It was my first trip to Sri Lanka and it was a very special and memorable because of our driver Rishan who helped us a lot! Rishan was very professional, always picked us up at the agreed time and was very understanding in various situations throughout the trip time. Our driver always shared valuable information and recommendations about Sri Lanka and the places what we visited. Our trip started from Colombo, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Galle and Colombo and it took 6 days in total. He always showed care about us and we felt like we were on this trip with a good friend not driver. I want to say a big thank you again Rishan for the time and energy what you put into making my trip very special and memorable.

    Had an amazing trip to Sri Lanka. Mr. Dilshan (Ikram) really arranged the tour greatly. The driver ,his own uncle Mr Husin such a gem guy. He really took gd care of us n fulfill all our wishes there. The food we wanted to taste, the items we wanted to shop , the places we wanted to visit. Really appreciate n respect their attempts to visit few Hindu temples . Even the driver arranged for some charity and donation for the poor people around the temple. Well planned and organized trip. A special thanks to Mr Husin who gave us a family feeling being with him for 7 days. Even he brought us to his house n introduce his children. A well mannered guy ,well dressed n trustworthy man. Very punctual n made our 7 days trip full with sweet memories. Even, Mr. Dilshan gave a surprise gift n treated us dinner on the last day. Very friendly n honest guy. In short, Sri Lanka is a must go country. “Driver Hire” should b ur first choice without any hesitation.

    The overall service they provided is really fantastic!
    Thanks Mr. Ikram, from the first day I found him for quotation, he keeps showing his profession to me, not only the price is quite nice, the car is new and comfortable, and he can always provide very good suggestion to me, and therefore, I can arrange my best schedule to this trip. He also reply very soon, very efficient that I feel I can totally trust him.

    And also thanks Mr. Hussain, my driver, who has very good driving experience that made me comfortable for whole trip, and he is also quite nice to give me some tour guiding and introduction in Kandy and Galle. This is a short trip, but I would say I will definitely choose their service again when next time I visit Sri Lanka

    I chose this company after getting a few quotes from various other car & driver organisations. Ikram the owner of “Sri Lanka Driver Hire (Pvt) Ltd” was very professional in all my dealings with him. He was polite, friendly and extremely easy to deal with. He even helped me out with booking a couple of train tickets for later on in my Sri Lanka trip, and also with money exchange. Throughout the whole journey, Ikram has been absolutely amazing! And has become a good friend. I booked a car & driver for 08 days for my trip around Sri Lanka with my wife and my dad. The price for this trip was very reasonable. Our Driver Hussain, were polite, friendly, knowledgeable and most important, He is very safe and careful drivers. I have nothing but praise for his driving skills, (not an easy thing on Sri Lanka roads). To sum things up, I would not hesitate in recommending Ikram and his company.

    I needed a company to help me with a car and driver, plus to assist with planning the finer details of a trip and I’m so glad we picked Sri Lanka Driver Hire. We reached out to 5 companies, SLDH sent us the best initial email with a helpful detailed quote. Although not the cheapest, it was the quality we were needing after precious trips to this amazing country. And it wasn’t the most expensive either. Ikram was amazing prior to us arriving with regular responses to my many emails of questions.

    Zindar is our driver, he became a valued and very trustworthy member of our holiday and spoke excellent English, drove safely and had our safety as his no.1 priority. We will always remember you as part of our 2024 trip to Sri Lanka, Zindar, huge thanks! PS apologies for the long review but it was important to us to find the right company for this trip, and I can confidently recommend Sri Lanka Driver Hire and will be using them again on future trips.

    We had the pleasure of having Mr Haniyas as our private driver for 9 days of adventure in Sri Lanka 🇱🇰
    Great service and help all the way and in all situations. Recommendation from us (2 adults and 4 kids).

    I had 4 days for holidays in Sri Lanka and I really made use of those thanks for Sri Lanka Driver Hire. I was very sceptical before the trip as I was travelling solo and being a female. The car was clean and comfortable. My driver Mr. Risan was super nice and helpful. He recommended me some nice places for shopping and introduced me to some local fruits (red banana, King coconuts, etc.) and even brought me to a local fabric shop and many other things. He went on to buy an umbrella when the rain came. So everything went smoothly. I will definitely use Sri Lanka Driver Hire again when I come back to Sri Lanka. Highly recommended.

    We had the best time with our driver Irshad. We spent around 12 days travelling with him through paradise. All the time we felt very safe and he did everything to make this trip amazing. We experienced so many things and could learn from him so many things about Sri Lankan food, animal, people, traditions, and a lot more about the culture. We stopped at places like hidden waterfalls, caves, restaurants – what we would never have if travelling alone – which was so great.

    He is an excellent driver, guide, teacher, and friend. We were lucky to have him on our way and we can only recommend him as your private driver in Sri Lanka. Thank you Irshad for everything.

    I am very satisfied with the services provided to me in the recent visit to Sri Lanka. I hired a car for 10 days, vehicles were in very good condition and the driver who provided to us for our Nuwaraeliya trip was very friendly too. I was able to get a safe, reliable and professional service from them. I can recommend them to your transportation needs in Sri Lanka.

  13. Mark - London, UK

    Excellent Service, highly recommended.

    We took the option of a personal driver for 10 days, and absolutely delighted that we did. Our driver, Rishan, was courteous, prompt and went above and beyond to make our trip as enjoyable as possible. Touches such as waiting with us to make sure we got on the right train for our scenic journey between Kandy and Nuwara Eliya (he took our luggage in the car and met us at the destination), and assisting with translation when we were trying to get into certain places meant that we had a relaxing, stress free and safe time in this amazing country. I could not recommend them enough.

  14. Morgan H - Canada

    From the moment of our prompt airport pickup the customer service was amazing. Greeted by a gentle fun man named Haniyas who toured us all over the island.

    He was educational, fun and relaxed the entire time. He introduced us to many people and let us have time to do everything we desired. He was helpful with recommendations so do not be afraid to ask. He also ensured our safety and wellbeing throughout the entire trip.

    I can’t wait to come back and there’s only one person and company I’ll be reaching out when I do so. I wish companies in my home country of canada showed this level of customer service and hospitality.

    P.s – his kids were adorable and his wife may be the best cook on the entire island. Appreciate everything and thank you for a vacation I’ll never forget.

    After 8 days of driving, I can highly recommend our driver Mr Razik.
    He is a very professional, experienced and kind driver who was always on time and was very helpful. The whole journey was safe, pleasant and according to our plan. We spent really nice time together. Thank you Mr Razik!

  17. Daisy

    We had the most amazing experience seeing the sights of Sri Lanka, the thing that made it so smooth was our driver Romesh from Sri Lanka Driver Hire.
    Romesh was friendly, accommodating and super reliable from the vey first moment we he picked us up at airport.
    Not only was Romesh a driver, but he was our very own Sri Lankan guide with amazing knowledge of places to visit, stops to make and information about Sri Lanka’s history and traditions.
    Romesh continuously went over and above to ensure we had the best time on our trip.
    We can’t recommend Romesh at Sri Lanka Driver Hire enough, thanks for making our honeymoon so special!

    I highly recommend Sri Lanka Driver Hire! 10/10 I will use them again on my future travels to the country!
    The company was very professional and easy to deal with prior to our arrival to Sri Lanka.
    Once we arrived our wonderful driver Ahamed was waiting for us at the airport. I cannot express how wonderful, easy, and authentic this company helped to make our experience in Sri Lanka. Ahamed drove us all over the country for 8 days and we felt very safe! The driving in Sri Lanka is wild you can’t drive yourself you need a local for safe and efficient travels. Ahamed took us to lots of hidden gems and authentic experiences that we never would have discover from our trip research and he taught us all about the Sri Lankan culture. He even invited us into his home when we were in his hometown to share dinner with his beautiful family!
    These sister from the USA enjoyed our vacation in Sri Lanka with a huge thanks to this company for getting us around the beautiful country safety!

    My wife and I visited Sri Lanka in February and Ahmed was our driver for the week.

    It was an amazing week and Ahmed took such excellent care of us, helping us to go to all of the places we wanted to, including the national parks and all through Weligama.

    He went above and beyond by introducing us to Sri Lanka food throughout the stay, and even meeting his wonderful family.

    If you are thinking of going to Sri Lanka I would 100% recommend using the driver hire company as it made our week so special.

    Es ist eine gute Entscheidung mit diesem Unternehmen zusammen die Reise zu organisieren. Individueller Drive service, viele Insiderinformationen, eine perfekte Form im Land anzukommen und unkompliziert die eigene Form des Reisens mit dem Fahrer abzusprechen und anzupassen . Unser Fahrer Anis war immer sehr bemüht unseren Wünschen zu entsprechen und wir haben uns in unterhaltsamer Form angenähert. Also: sehr empfehlenswert

    Anees was such a great driver! We were with him for a round travel for 15days.
    At the beginning someone at the airport took my luggage instead of his. And Annes helped us to talk to the airport and get it back in a view houres.
    He was alweays there for us, got us to great places and let us try diffrent typical food. He told us what to say to people, who want to show us arround and make money and what tip (extra money) is normal in witch Situation.
    When we were at a place, we didn’t like so much (because of could and rainy weather), he organized to get to the next step of our journey earlier and organized everthing with the accomodations. He was a great, save driver and as a special experiance, he invited us to his home in the end of the journey.
    His wife should me how to cook sri lanka food and we felt very welcomed!
    Thank you for everything Anees,
    Greetings Melanie
