If you are looking for a driver in order to tour Sri Lanka, look no further. Dee Lanka Tours offer a thoroughly professional, reliable service, Piumal is an absolute legend, and we hope a friend for life. We have just returned from SL after a drastically shortened trip due to the dreaded Covid-19. We had planned a 7 day tour with Piumal, and throughout the whole planning/booking process, Piumal held our hand, made suggestions, (though in no way forced us to follow his plans), responded immediately, and provided clear, very competitive pricing plans. We were met at the rather nervous airport by Piumal having arrived from the UK and were immediately made to feel secure and looked after. A lovely, clean minibus, full a/c, fresh water continuously replenished. Piumal had a wonderful knack of interacting with us at the right time, and allowing us our own space when needed. He is a fantastic driver, really safe and skilled on chaotic roads. Throughout our tour he looked after us superbly, we felt like his 2 grown up kids, continually advising, but ultimately allowing us to do whatever we desired. ( he was very knowledgeable and always had sensible advice)When it became apparent that our plans needed to change and we needed to return home he was incredibly helpful. We spent 2 hrs on his mobile phone on international calls re-arranging our gravel plans. He was keen not to charge us for the final 4 days of our trip even though it was us cancelling the tour- clearly we honoured our commitment. Sincerely folks, this is a really excellent company fronted by a very honest, warm, helpful knowledgeable driver, Piumal. THANKYOU, we will return to have a proper holiday and obviously will make Piumal and Dee Lanka tours our first point of contact.

Piumal was a great tour guide and driver. He made excellent recommendations of things for us to do, see and eat in the one week that we had in Sri Lanka, helping us make the most of our time here. His van was clean, comfortable and spacious with air con. Even with 9 suitcases, the 6 of us were able to stretch our legs out. Piumal also provided us with lots of bottled water for the entire trip which was super helpful and just one example of how he went above and beyond. PIUMAL Professional- with 30 years of experience in the tourism industry he was able to recommend the best things to do and see and best restaurants to eat at. He took care of every small detail that we overlooked Informative- he was very knowledgeable on many historic and cultural aspects of Sri Lanka. He shared Sri Lankan foods with us, allowing us to experience real Sri Lankan cuisine that we otherwise wouldn't have known to try Understanding and flexible- he helped us create a travel plan which we were able to change when needed Most valuable player of the Sri Lankan tourism industry Above and beyond- continually exceeded our expectations. eg, he even drove until 9pm for us one day inside rural tea country to make sure we arrived at our accommodation safely Lovely and likeable person- evident by his many friends around the country Thank you Piumal! We appreciate all your help!

Having Piumal as our local driver and guide during our week long trip ensured that we could enjoy our trip to the fullest. Travelling with Piumal was a great experience. He was an excellent driver with 30 years of experience. He kept our holiday on track and provided excellent recommendations along the ways (including the off beaten tracks of Sri Lanka). Piumal took every opportunity to ensure our safety and was reliable at every point along the trip. Thanks for making our trip to Sri Lanka so enjoyable!

I just finishing a great a week holiday experience in Sri Lanka. I must thank Mr Piumal for his exceptional service. He has a full knowledge of the areas and the routes. He is perhaps the best guide. He took us at various site seeing areas places starting from Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Ella, Mirissa Beach and finally to the airport. It was indeed a great trip with my family and thank him making our trip so comfortable and worthwhile.

I’m not usually one to write a review but i feel Piumal deserves one! Our family trip to Sri Lanka has been amazing thanks to Piumal and his recommendations. His van is very comfortable and spacious which is helpful for the long drives. He was very accomodating and patient with our requests and he took us to trusted and good quality restaurants to eat in. He had been in the industry for 30 years and he knew exactly where to take us, including the hidden gems of Sri Lanka. Our holiday felt very relaxing and enjoyable. Piumal is a lovely and generous person, I highly recommend him.
