Kandy to Ella Destination Reviews

Excellent driver. Pickup in time, sightseeing stops included. We had no problems with the later arrival time, because it was agreed with us.

Our driver was super helpful and the van was clean and comfortable. The driver recommended a couple of spots for overview photos and even a visit to a tea plantation which we really enjoyed. It was a long drive along winding roads and he was very careful and a good, safe driver.

Vijitha is an amazing driver and a lovely guy. He was very accommodating and patient, and made the best of a very testing journey with pouring rain and landslides. I would recommend him to anyone travelling to Sri Lanka.
