Hi Udaya and Michelle,

 

Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you.  Yes, we arrived back in the US safely.  I immediately went straight back to work and Tina moved from Chicago to Florida to start our lives together!  Thank you so much for your kindness!  We will remember our Sri Lanka trip forever.

To Whom It May Concern,

We hired Udaya ( michelleuthaya@yahoo.com  mobile + 94  77 166 0008) for a four-day trip around the Cultural Triangle in October 2010. We are a family of four, two adults (one of whom was quite pregnant) and two young children. Udaya made our trip as easy, fun, and comfortable as he possibly could. He was 100% reliable, always showing up exactly when and where he said he would, a smile on his face. He drove with great care. He served as a casual guide, even helping to explain the recent history of Sri Lanka to us. He was absolutely charming with the kids, who took to him immediately. I did some comparative shopping before we hired him, and his prices seemed more than fair. I recommend Udaya highly!

Best,

Dear Udaya and Michelle,
 
A big thank you from the Bolding family for such a great trip. We were royally looked after 24 hours a day and the balance of what we saw was fantastic.
We will recommend your services and the whole family would like to return to Sri Lanka which shows what a success it was.
 
Wishing you health and happiness to you and your family.

Hi Udaya
This is a copy of the email I just sent to the Fulbright office in Colombo .
Good to see you today!

Udaya just drove me on a very pleasant trip to Trincomalee, with a stop
at Polonnaruwa on the way back to Kandy , and he was more than
excellent.  Very smart, upbeat, friendly.  His approach to the police
and soldiers at the checkpoints seemed to be, "Either these guys are
already my friends or they will be before we move on," and it works
beautifully.  They all like him, and he knows how to avoid any hassles
either at checkpoints or at hotels.  Also, he seems most definitely not
to milk his customers for commissions at hotels, shops or restaurants.
Also, he speaks fluent Tamil as well as Sinhala, and his English is
about the best of any driver I've had here.  And he charges less than

anyone else whose services I've used.

 
Enthusiastically,

Udaya:  I had the best time driving with you from Kandy to Trincomalee to Polonnoruwa and back home again!  I will tell all the people I know who come to this magical island country that they should hire you to be their driver.  I am sure you are friends with more policemen and checkpoint soldiers than anyone else in Sri Lanka -- and it makes the entire tour easier.  You have an excellent sense of timing, of how to manage a trip at the right pace.  Thank you again.

Udaya, you have arranged the most beautiful hotel anyone can imagine! This is a great place, everybody would love it here!

During my two weeks here in beautiful Sri Lanka you have been a great friend and an important help to make the best pictures ever! Glad that I've met you, you make a stay in Sri Lanka an unforgettable one!

As I have been in Sri Lanka several times now, it is the first time that I have been driven around safely. Udaya is a real gentleman in his car.

I have saved more money a man could imagine, your 'negotiation skills' excede mine by 100%, and I am a very experienced traveler I thought....

Best regards from Bentota (where we are going to eat two big lobsters tonight!!)

Dear Udaya!

At last we are at home in Ukraine.


First of all I'd like to say a very great thanks for all you have done for us because you did a really great job!

Actually, it was much more than I could even expected. When I was trying to organise our trip I had no contacts at all and I found you in the web randomly. When you are here in Ukraine, all things are seemed from a bit different side and you don't understand things that can be really important in Sri-Lanka. So, when I was searching for somebody in your country I expected only for a driver and nothing else. But we've got much more - you was like a tour guide for us, advisor, person who can allways help us if needed, you even create atmosphere in a trip and trying to rise a humour if smth goes wrong....finally it was really pleasant to spend time with you with a feeling that you have a friend instead of just a person who you've hired for money.

Thanks to you we had a great holidays in Sri-Lanka and got an unforgettable memories about it.

Sri-Lanka is very beautiful and various country! We had a feeling that we've visited not a one small island but as if visited several different countries. Thanks to your help we have seen much more than expected and that was wonderful!

You can have absolutelly no doubts that if somebody of our friends will come to Sri-Lanka we will definatelly reccomend you for them!
