We hired a car with driver for 6 days to do the cultural triangle road trip at our own pace. My wife's pregnant and we were worried if the car or the road trip would be an inconvenience , but I must admit, the car was very comfortable for the 800km we covered. Sugath, our driver was calm and very...

We are three girls here for work for a few week and we just returned from a 4 day trip from Kandy to Jaffna. Our driver Dunuthu was excellent and I would highly recommend him to others looking for a driver. He was a safe and efficient driver, but also went above and beyond to show us as much as...

We booked a one day tour and our driver was Amal. He was a very good, safe and careful driver. He never takes risks and his catchphrase is 'safety first'. He gave us a lot of helpful information on the trip, his English is very good and he pointed out great places to stop and take photographs. He also took...

The rooms downstairs didn't have any view! It was not clean, toilet was horrible. It was very smelly, the pool was so dirty and the location of the hostel was very far from downtown. We couldn't get a tuktuk at 9pm to move around as it was completely dark and no one was around in this area. Won't recommend it...

We booked a 5 day-tour in the office of Blue Haven Tours in Colombo train Station. Colombo-Galle-Yala-Ella-Passekudah. It was very easy to organize. The accommadations were really nice and well located. Our divers (Ranjid and Sandamal) were very friendy. They drove carefully and we felt whole time comfortable. Especially Sandamal showed us a lot of plants and animals along the...

Mr Linton at Colombo train station office organised a driver called Gayan to take us to Kandy and from there to Nuwara Eliya a couple of days later (as the trains were all full to the highlands). Gayan was a friendly man and took care of us and showed us the sites along the route stopping off for photo spots...

Brilliant! We stayed here for 7 nights because we loved it so much! Chu Chi is the star of the show and is amazing at what he does! We were recommended Blue Haven and did not do a tour or driving, which hasn't sounded like it's worked out for everyone, but just booking into the hotel and getting up there...

We stayed here for 2 nights while we visited Kandy. Firstly the main man Samon (i think) was very welcoming and incredibly hardworking. Our stay would not have been the same without him. The rooms were basic but spacious and very clean. There is a main terrace where all guests sit and chat giving the guest house a really nice...

We stayed a night here during a short trip. The room was basic but not unexpected at this price. Friendly welcome although a 10 minute tuk tuk from town, (makes for a bit more sightseeing!) Great private breakfast next to the pool and friendly staff.

We stumbled on the blue haven office when we couldn't get a ticket for the train to kandy at Colombo station. The owner of the business was very helpful and didn't try to rip us off when pricing our trip. We already had accommodation booked so just required a driver. Danu picked us up from our hotel the next day....
