9 of us had just spent our 12-day tour with Sky Ferns tours.We had the most wonderful trip in Sri Lanka. we’re very lucky to meet professional Driver, He is very helpful, kind, cheerful and attended to all our needs. He drove us all around Sri Lanka safely. He was knowledgeable and had no trouble to bring us to the guest houses/resorts booked. We were very bonded with him during the whole trip and was very sad to say goodbye to him . I highly recommend him to my friends who want to visit Sri Lanka. We all had the most memorable time touring around this beautiful country.
Thank you for wonderful service.
We missed you!
