Of course, we want to win you as a customer for our own services, but also we hope to give you valuable travel tips and insider advice.
More and more modern travellers prefer independent travelling. And this is quite easy in Sri Lanka. Many locals understand English and all of them will be happy to help you to find your way, whenever you ask them. Sri Lanka`s railway is a genuine travel experience in itself, especially the highland train can be recommended. Regular public bus service is available in every single village of the whole country. Airconditioned Intercity busses connect all major town, much faster than trains. And public transport is not at all expensive in Sri Lanka. So you will really have lots of options to travel around independently.
However, the most indepedent way of travelling is to have your own driver. You can decide which route to take from one village to the next one, you can stop wherever you want, you do not waste time at bus stations and finding your way to the guesthouse. It’s not only more comfortable, it’s really saving much valuable time of your holidays.
Yes, our driving services are more expensive than public busses. But many guests like to combine some relaxing days at the beach with some genuine travel experiences such as our real safaris or our village holidays. Independent travellers also can combine visits of major attractions by bus and seeing some extraordinary destinations off-the beaten track with one of our experienced drivers, maybe only for a few days.
Be sure, you will not regret to spend some days of your holidays with locals and at places other tourists will never come to see. See the real Sri Lanka! Try and compare, then you will understand, that our expertise can make a difference.
