If you’re looking for a driver for a hassle-free vacation in Sri Lanka, look no more. I just spent 14 days with Pradeep in what became one of the most memorable trips of my life. Reading on the internet and becoming aware of the tales of horror among some drivers.. You know, taking you to places you don’t wanna go, pushing products, spying on your luggage and so on. Me and my girlfriend really took our time looking for a driver. We spoke directly with some 5 drivers, with Sri Lankan Safest Driver already standing out on first communication. Perfect english in an email that didn’t try to sell us more or change our script (some of them did!) and clarifying precisely that they knew the industry has some problems but that them (a family business) were not part of this and were determined to give us the best possible experience.
We took the leap and did it. At the beginning of October we arrived to meet Pradeep, an awesome fella with great english and very good sense of humour. From the first day on we knew we could trust him. Always incredibly on time, he took us for a 14 day ride all over Sri Lanka. Always asking what we wanted to do, giving sincere advice and never pushing anything.
You can talk to him about the story of the country and get a feel of how life is truly lived there. 14 days later, we had loads of fun, shared coffees and stories of life. And I hope we left him as much of a positive impression as he left us! On a practical note: no hidden fees, no funny business. Trustworthy, professional, straightforward, always sharply on time and drives SAFE (believe me, drivers can be wild there!).
Look no further, hire Sri Lankan Safest Driver.
If you are planning to travel to Sri Lanka and need a driver you should absolutely choose Sri Lankan safest driver. We, a family with mother, father and three children (14, 16 and 20) asked them for a two day trip from Udawalave to Ella and from Ella to Bentota. Our driver Pradeep planned a perfect trip for us. We saw a lot more than we expected and during the trip he suggested new exciting things to see, do or attend. We had a clean, comfortable van, Toyota. Pradeep is polite, always on time, a very good and safe driver and a very nice person. He gives you a lot of interesting information about Sri Lanka and the people living there. Do not even think about any other driver. With Pradeep as a guide and driver you get so much more than a driver and your experience of Sri Lanka will be so much more complete.
Our family with a 4 years old son spent 6 days in Sri Lanka, and we had the precious help of Anton from the Safest Driver. He was always available and kind, gave us very nice tips and help us to redefine our route. We arrive to the airport and he was there without delays. Our trip wasn’t be the same without him! We want return to make all the missing places to visit and for sure we will try to do it with him! Thank you Anton
From first pickup at airport to last farewell at airport, our guide and driver Thusith supported us. We followed our 14 day plan mostly – but got a lot of tips from first contact with the business by mail from Pradep to “reality” support from Thusith. Thusith also gave us suggestions in what to do on the road to next destination. If you travel with them – trust the guide/driver – but be clear with what you like – we are all different. He customized well and had a good ear for what we liked. We felt the driving was very safe and in harmony – I think he drove in speed around 60-70 km/h. We really liked this friendly and customer supporting family business and can happily recommend them for your journey.
Me and my parents just came home from a 10 day trip with this company. Prasanna, our driver, was always on time and drove us safely and knew his way around on the roads. He was easy to spend time with and talk to, he spoke good english and was always in a good mood. He has been very helpful to us as he gave us good information and showed us a Sri Lanka that would not have been possible without him. Having a driver was a very good choice as we saved alot of time in commuting, and choosing this company was right for us. We can warmly recommend Prasanna and his company, a family runned business who has been great to us. Thank you Prassana for this time, hope to meet you again.
Our family of four had a great trip to Sri Lanka visiting both the Hill Country and the Southern Provins for ten days. We had booked Pradeep as driver who met us in Colombo and who drove us during four days through the Hill Country and down to Weligama and later picked us up to drive us back to Colombo and Negombo for our flight home again. I would recommend anybody to use Sri Lankan Safest Driver, Pradeep with family truly made a difference for our trip. He both helped us with planning and adjusting our itinerary before our arrival as well as arrange with train tickets for us (something we had forgot/not thought about) for our trip between Nuwara Eliya and Ella. Always on time and truly a safe driver, always taking it cool in the hectic traffic. Pradeep was a great guide giving plenty of information on any question we had about Sri Lanka, it’s history or culture. He also covered local plants, fruits and animals and always gave good advice on restaurants, etc. We had a great time together with Pradeep who really made a positive difference for our visit to Sri Lanka.
We had a great 7 day trip with Chathu from Sri Lanka’s Safest Driver. He was very obliging and knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble, even detouring so we could check out a villa for a friend. We also used this company from Negombo to transport us to Colombo, where we had a drink on the checkerboard terrace of the Galle Face Hotel to watch the sunset, then to dinner at Ministry of Crab restaurant (both highly recommended). He then drove us back to our hotel. Great service, and well priced. If you’re thinking of a trip to Sri Lanka with a personalised tour, this is the company for you.
The best idea we had was to book a driver, and we were so lucky with finding such a good one! It made all the difference to our trip around the ‘Cultural Triangle’ We felt very safe, any changes to plan where never a problem, we were always met on time, with a smile, enormous enthusiasm and knowledge along with fantastic suggestions of other things to see along the way. Could not recommend highly enough!
