We booked our driver Upul already in advance, while we were still planning our trip to Sri Lanka. We received some advice from a friend that had some good experience with Upul and recommended us to contact him. We stayed in Sri Lanka at many places for a total of 16 days and drove around the whole island to see all the highlights of Sri Lanka. We made our own itinerary and booked our hotels upfront, so we basically had Upul to assist us on our trip and accompany us.

Upul is very careful as a driver and drives very easy and nice, which makes you very comfortable. We even did some additional sightseeing on his advice which were wonderful highlights of our trip. Upul was not only our driver but also sometimes participated in some of the hikes to make sure we took the right route. Safari Tours like Yala and Minneriya were arranged on the spot by Upul for a fair price.

You can also do the train ride as part of your trip; Upul will help you get on the right train and will be at the next station (3-4h later) with your bags to continue by car. It was really helpful and nice to have such a warm and honest driver like Upul that made our stay in Sri Lanka even better.

We can really recommend Upul.
Wish you all the best!

Last minute we decided to book a trip in Sri Lanka and contacted Upul. He helped us with our itinerary, hotels booking and train ticket before the trip. He always picked us up in time, was very flexible in case we decided last minute to change something and always very helpful, friendly and reliable. You could see that he already had a lot of experience as a driver for tourists.
I can highly recommend him!!

We used Upul for our trip around Sri Lanka and he was amazing! He brought us everywhere we wanted to go, we felt safe, comfortable and had a great laugh with him throughout our trip. I would highly recommend Upul for your trip!

We booked Upul through Sri Lankan Drivers. He was at the airport waiting with a large sign and a very warm smile.
He was with us for 10 days and everything went smoothly. His car was comfortable for 4 of us and our luggage. He provided water and had air conditioning.
We were on the move every one or two days and covered about 1,500kms.
He always checked ahead to confirm our arrival times and booked our train ticket from Kandy to Ella for us. He was a safe driver and was happy to impart his local knowledge.
Totally trustworthy, an excellent timekeeper and delightful company - we would book Upul next time and be happy for him to make our on the ground arrangements.

Last week, we made a road trip in Sri Lanka with Upul. He is a very gentle and experienced driver. The man is easy going, always on time and gave a lot of suggestions and tips of things to do. We learned so much about the country and had a lot of fun together. He can either give you the privacy you need or join you in a nice chat. We are glad that we travelled with him, he was not only our driver, but in the end also our friend.
