star rating  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.

star rating  Best journey ever! – 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

star rating  Best Decision for my Sri Lanka Tour – We were travelling with a 1 year old baby and were worried if we’ll be able to do this trip around Sri Lanka for 7 days. Once we arrived at rhe airport Mr. Romesh met us and took care of every little detail, comfort, planning, sightseeing and even babysitting whenever needed so that we could enjoy the sights. More than a driver I can say we got an extended family member in Mr. Romesh as they went out of their way and invited us to their home to celebrate our babys birthday and even made an amazing lunch for us. The hospitality ,care and warmth extended by them and Mr. Dilshaan is the highlight of our Sri Lanka trip.

Highly Recommended 10/10

star rating  Faizal was an excellent driver and companion for five days. He really worked hard and made the trip very special for me. Thank you so much! The car was a second hand Japanese Suzuki Spacia as advertised – complete with Japanese car navigation and ETC fir Japan only! Quite amusing I thought, since I live in Japan.

star rating  Fantastic service! Highly recommend. We booked a driver through Sri Lanka Driver hire to drive my husband and I and our 2 year old daughter for 12 days around Sri Lanka. The communication before our trip was excellent – Dilshaan answered all my questions and was very helpful with suggestions of things to see as well as answering my queries. We requested a car seat for my daughter and had several options to choose from. Our driver, Mr Rishan was wonderful, from the minute he picked us up he was kind, courteous and incredibly helpful. He drove really carefully and safely which made me feel very at ease especially as we had our daughter with us. He suggested several things to do and see on our journey which were great. He went out of his way to help us on numerous occasions and generally made our trip really easy and enjoyable. We couldn’t have asked for a better driver.

star rating  If need a driver for the time you are visiting Sri Lanka, we are recommanding this company! Before the holdiday started we had good and clear contact with the company about how everything is going to work. In Sri Lanka we met our driver Ahmed, he gave us the best possible experience and he made us feel very welcome. Ahmed is very friendly and he speaks good english. Everyday we got fresh water, and on the first day we received a Simcard to always have internet, wich was very helpfull. Also he learned us lot about Sri Lanka and the culture and history. Ahmed drove safely, and was always on time! Thank you so much Ahmed for everything!!

star rating  Fabulous stay in a wonderful country – I contacted Dilshaan for a 10 day tour around Sri Lanka with my family. He was extremely reactive and answered all of my questions within 10 minutes. We were assigned Aniyas as our driver and he was fantastic, turned up at the airport with flowers and a local SIM card which was the perfect start. I’d been staying in Sri Lanka for a while and pretty much had a good idea of what we wanted to see but the best moments of our stay were the places suggested by Aniyas – Tea Factory in Kandy, roadside lunch in Sigiriya, Spice Garden in Matale and Turtle Farm in Galle – all fantastic experiences. The vehicle was always spotless and well supplied with water and Aniyas was always careful during our long journeys. Even the roadside stops were enjoyable – tasting king coconuts and close encounters with monkeys. We can’t thank Dilshaan and Aniyas enough for their service and help during our stay, it was magical.

star rating  We embarked on a remarkable 15-day journey across the captivating landscapes of Sri Lanka, accompanied by a close-knit group of five fellow travelers. At the heart of this adventure was Romesh, an extraordinary driver whose expertise and unwavering commitment to our safety and enjoyment elevated our experience.
Romesh proved to be not just a driver, but a knowledgeable guide who skillfully navigated us through the intricate tapestry of the island. His insights into the local culture, coupled with his impeccable driving skills, instilled confidence and allowed us to immerse ourselves fully in every destination.
Beyond his driving prowess, Romesh’s passion for his country shone through as he generously shared insider recommendations for dining experiences that delighted our palates. His guidance extended beyond tourist attractions, as he effortlessly assisted us with practicalities, ensuring that our journey was seamless and stress-free.
Our group unanimously agrees that Romesh was the linchpin of our adventure, the embodiment of reliability, and the key to unlocking the hidden gems of Sri Lanka. Recommending him is not a choice but a responsibility; his presence is the difference between an ordinary trip and an unforgettable voyage. Without reservation, we wholeheartedly endorse Romesh as a driver and companion. To those planning their own Sri Lankan escapade, do yourselves a favor and request Romesh. He’s not just a driver – he’s the architect of cherished memories and the guarantee of an unparalleled expedition.

star rating  The best choice we made ☺️ – When we decided to choose a private driver for our journey we didn‘t expect to have booked such an all-inclusive-service-package we had with Zindar.

He did not only drive us arround, he found out our needs and interests, learned us about the country and this always in a very respectful manner.
He wasnt invasiv or haunted us into something.
He gave us the opportunity to see more about and around Sri Lanka in a pleasant way.
He was like a good ghost in the background and let us have family time all the way.

Our family and I can highly recommend Sri Lanka Drive Hire for your trip through this beautiful country.

Thank you for everything

star rating  Amazing experience! – We used Sri Lanka driver hire for our recent 2 week trip. From communication through watsapp, planning our journey to meeting our driver Faizal at the airport the whole process was smooth, and professional. The car had AC, was spacious and clean and comfortable. We felt safe with Faizal as our driver at all times.

Faizal catered to our every need, provided wifi and water every day and made our holiday an incredible experience – his knowledge of his country was fantastic, and would take us to places enroute such as temples, waterfalls or to the perfect viewpoint for a wonderful photo opportunity. Faizal also stopped along the way to introduce us to Sri Lankan treats such as green coconut water and curd with kitul which were delicious!

Faizal has become a friend and we highly recommend him and the company for anyone wanting to explore Sri Lanka!

star rating  Great trip to Sri Lanka with Sri Lanka Driver Hire – We booked a car with a driver for a four-day trip. We were completely satisfied with everything.

We got the best possible driver, Anees. Anees is always kind and smiling, but most importantly drives safely and is helpful. He arrived on time every morning and so all the sights fit into our planned time. I would definitely recommend Anees if you are booking a car with a driver. Anees is the best.

There were five of us, so we booked a Mini Van. We received a clean, comfortable and air-conditioned car. Anees prepared fresh water in the car for us every day. We also received 1 free internet card.

The company:
Communication with Dilshaan was easy and quick. All our questions were answered. You can book with this company at a very fair price.

star rating  This was our second trip to Sri Lanka, and Zindar made it a very successful and enjoyable one. We explored many places that we would not have been able to see or know without Zindar’s experience. The car was extremely comfortable, we had many moments of laughter, long conversations, and ultimately learnt anlot about Sri Lanka.

From visiting turtle sanctuaries to seeing some of the most epic waterfalls, Sri Lanka is a wonderful country with amazing nature, culture and people. Zindar is also able to tailor the itinerary to your needs. We definitely recommend using Sri Lanka Driver Hire for your next trip to Sri Lanka, but we additionally advice you to request Zindar for an even better holiday! And do ask him to show you the many varieties of fruits that Sri Lanka has to offer! 🙂

star rating  Choose Jiffry from this amazing company! – Driver:
Jiffry was our driver for the week. Every morning he was ready early to pick us up and had the car clean and stocked with water for the day. Even though we had planned out our own itinerary, he still made suggestions and showed us places we would have missed otherwise. It was so helpful to have a local’s insight and to have someone we could ask questions to. Despite our schedule having several early mornings, he was always ready to go with a smile on his face. He was also very helpful in communicating with some locals when we struggled to. By the end of our trip, we had definitely made a new friend which made it hard to leave. 100% request Jiffry as your driver when you book this company.

The car was a modern hybrid Honda Freed. It was comfortable and had great air conditioning. Everything I would have expected in a vehicle.

The company was so helpful even before we had arrived in Sri Lanka. We were able to ask questions that were completely unrelated to our car and driver rental and they went above and beyond to help us get answers to them. Upon arriving back home, we had messages from both the company and our driver making sure that we had made it home safely.

star rating  During my recent trip to Sri Lanka, I had the pleasure of using the services of Sri Lanka Driver Hire, and I must say it was a wonderful experience. Sri Lanka truly is a hidden gem that many Americans are missing out on, and having a knowledgeable tour guide like Sri Lanka Driver Service made my visit all the more enjoyable.

Rizmy at Sri Lanka Driver Hire provided a personalized and convenient tour experience, akin to having a knowledgeable relative show you around a new city. The driver was friendly, professional, and well-versed in the country’s history, culture, and attractions. They shared fascinating stories and insights about the places we visited, making the journey more engaging and enriching.

One aspect that impressed me was their willingness to go the extra mile. Besides offering sightseeing tours, Sri Lanka Driver Hire also assisted with practical matters such as laundry services and shopping for gemstones. Their attention to detail and commitment to customer satisfaction were evident throughout the trip.

star rating  The most amazing driver – Sabri – We just completed 3 weeks round-trip in beautiful Sri Lanka. From the first contact with the company, we have felt completely safe. We had the must amazing driver Sabri and felt so safe driving with him. He was so good at making our trip exactly how we wanted it to be. He always showed up on time and was happy, smiling and good with the kids. We are differently coming back to Sri Lanka and when we do we know exactly who to contact. We also know what company and driver we will be recommending to all our friends and family. Thank you and Sabri for the most amazing trip.

star rating  A memorable 6-day holiday in Sri Lanka with our expert tour guide, Ajmeer! – I already anticipated a professional outfit from the initial (online) communication with Dilshaan and I was not disappointed when I met our driver and expert tour guide Ajmeer. From the end-to-end organization of our 6-day itinerary to a competitive quotation, I cannot stress enough how good this company is without whom my wife and I would never fully appreciate what Sri Lanka genuinely has to offer.

Ajmeer not only diligently followed the itinerary but added personal touches to the schedule that were ‘on the way’ to make this a truly memorable holiday. The vehicle was always immaculate with drinking water provision coupled with disciplined pickup and drop off times that helped my wife and I to organize our daily routine.

Ajmeer is trustworthy, caring, down to earth, informative, takes immense pride in his appearance and has a genuine intent to put his job above all else – he missed Eid Al Adha celebrations on Thursday 29th June 2023 to personally accompany us on several excursions – how is that for commitment and going above and beyond the line of duty!

Ajmeer enhanced our Sri Lanka holiday and is a true ambassador not only for this Company but for himself – really well done Ajmeer, great job sir and thank you Dilshaan for all the support as well as the connection to Ajmeer.

When we book our next trip to Sri Lanka, Ajmeer will be our recommendation !
