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!
