My wife and I hired Pradeep's services for a week long tour of Sri Lanka and I honestly can't fault him. From the outset his communication was excellent, quoting a very fair price, helping us to plan our route & offering to buy train tickets for us prior to our arrival. He was smart and punctual meeting us as arranged every morning. His car was a clean, comfortable and modern Prius with great aircon! He really lives up to the name of Sri Lanka's safest driver and was always careful on the busy roads. Nothing was too much trouble, stopping whenever & wherever we requested and navigating well to find the random hotels & guesthouses that we booked in the middle of nowhere! We wouldn't hesitate to book Pradeep as our driver if we return to Sri Lanka and would gladly recommend him to anyone so look no further if you need a driver!Neil
We felt so safe and secure having Prasanna taking us around the island in a comfortable car, driving safe and secure and able to answer all our questions, giving us the best advice, and being helpful whenever we needed in both small and bigger matters while traveling around the island. We will always remember Prasanna and his natural friendly and caring personality and we strongly recommend him and the company to take care of tourists that want to travel and learn more about the beautiful Sri Lankan island with a private guide. We´ll definitely come back soon again.Alexander
We traveled 2 weeks around in Sri Lanka. We booked last minute so we didn't know much at all about what to do and what to see. Pradeep was very kind and helpful to help us organize our tour and gave us many suggestions. He was super quick in answering his mails. Our driver Dhammika was great! He was always in time, very friendly and also always very anxious to help us with pretty much everything we needed help with. He was very easy to be around with and we enjoyed the time very much. We had an amazing experience in Sri Lanka and I can recommend them to every one who's thinking about going to Sri Lanka (which everyone should most definitely do!) and booking a private driver - Thank you to Pradeep and Dhammika!Hanna
We spent almost 3 weeks with Pradeep during our family stay in Sri Lanka. I can only recommend Pradeep who is an excellent driver and guide. Before our arrival, he was very responsive by email and with good advice on the program of our trip. During the stay, he was always punctual and he guided us well on the visits to be made, schedules to be privileged, places for lunch ... while adapting well to our needs (in family with small children). In addition Pradeep is super nice, very polite and speaks perfect English. And he deserves his title of "safest driver in Sri Lanka". Thanks Pradeep!Maiwenn Mollet
Me and my friends had an amazing week with our driver Nishanta. He was a really friendly and safe driver. He helped us with reservation of train tickets, recommendations for restaurants and guided tours. All of us enjoyed our week with Nishantha as a driver!Johanna
It was a great vacation on Sri Lanka. It is such an amazing country, with beautiful nature and very kind people. Our driver Prashanna was very professional, kind, and ready to help us with everyting to have the best time on our trip. The name Sri Lanka's safest driver definitely stands by its name. Prashanna is an amazing driver, and a car was very comfortable with a lot of space inside. He speaks great English, was ready to answer all of our questions, took us to great restaurants, but also was very careful not to take us to some expensive places (including everything, not only restaurants), he really took care of our budget also. He recommended us some additional places to see on the way, which were great, and definitely worth it. Also he managed to find all of our homestays pretty easily, regarding the locations of the same. All in all, we are very satisfied with the service, and definitely would recommend Sri Lanka's safest driver to anyone who wants to explore this beautiful country.Milica & Zeljko
We went on a 8 day traveling with Sri Lankan Safest Driver. It was a wonderful and safe trip with the best driver Pradeep. We got to see a lot of great things and get to know the culture in Sri Lanka. The car was comfortable and relaxing with AC. We really recommend this company if you want to explore the country or just want a safe and comfortable ride.Filippa
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.Thomas Ljungberg
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.Nicholas Amorim
Our driver/guide was Pradeep - he was quick to respond to our e-mails, he assisted in planning an itinerary, he bought us train tickets from Nuwara Eliya to Ella before we arrived - its not easy task & very hard to do it yourself. Pradeep was professional, he was always on time, his car is spot on in great condition & clean. He was always helpful to make suggestions i.e. photo spots, other sights to visit on the way, places to taste the local food we wanted to try etc. He is the driver you want to go for when in Sri Lanka, he is safe & patient driver. We spent with Pradeep 6 full days, we went to Dambulla, Sigirya, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Ella, Udawalawe, Mirissa & Galle. We also appreciated the fact that Pradeep has a similar respect towards animals as we do and he doesnt support unethical animl attractions. He took us to ethical places such as Elephant Transit Home, which really is great place to see Elephant babies & learn more about these majestic animals. They help the orphaned elephant babies until they are ready to be released to the wild. There is none or minimal human contact, so that they dont get used to humans and would manage well once back in the wild. You get to see them at 9am in the morning from behind the barrier, when the babies come to drink milk. 🙂 When you go to Sri Lanka, choose Sri Lankan Safest Driver! 🙂 Liisi & Tolik.
We spent 2 wonderful weeks, in the company of Mr. Prashanna. Excellent driver. Very professional and always in a good mood. It was a great asset, since we talked a lot and we ended up getting to know more about Sri Lankan culture. It was an excellent upgrade on this trip to a wonderful country that I would like to return. I strongly recommend this family run tour company.
