Sri Lanka Things to Do: 539 reviews and 890 photos

Organised tours are a good way of seeing the best of a country but we went one step further and contacted a company called Aitken Spence Ltd. and told them what we wanted to see and they arranged a tour for us in our own private car with driver for 3 days. Hotels were booked and the drivers have their own rooms in the grounds of the hotels with other drivers. All entrances to various sites were included and we also got to see a bit more off the beaten track as the driver was from Colombo, a charming well educated man who made our 3 days seem like a week where we fitted so much in, and gave us so much information. A highly recommended way of seeing the best of Sri Lanka, and the nicest thing was when the driver stopped by the roadside and picked us red bananas to eat!
