Even the most experienced travellers can find the roads of Sri Lanka a bit of shock to the system! From motorcycles and tuc tuc taxi drivers weaving through rush-hour traffic in the cities to rural areas where cows and elephants ramble in the middle of a main road, driving in Sri Lanka will certainly present a challenge! We therefore do not recommend renting a car in Sri Lanka unless you have experience driving in similar chaotic conditions. However, if you are not driving, travelling in Sri Lanka by private car is the easiest and most comfortable way to explore the island, here at Tharul Tours we offer experienced drivers ready to transport you safely around Sri Lanka.
Private car travel with an expert driver guide is the core of our business and you will be pleasantly surprised to find that you can book your own car, with an experienced chauffeur-guide for an extremely reasonable price. Your comfort, safety and satisfaction are our top priorities and we pride ourselves on delivering affordable packages for each and every client.
Booking a private car and driver guide has to be by far the safest and least stressful way to get around Sri Lanka. Your experienced driver guide will make your safety and relaxation their main concern, and in combination with a good level of English and expert local knowledge they can double up as a tour guide as and when required. We also know many special out-of-the-way places to make your holiday even more memorable and can suggest additional activities for you during your tour. Your driver can advise accurately on driving times to reduce the stress of travel to a minimum, and will always be happy to answer any questions you may have about Sri Lanka.
We offer flexible and cost effective car and driver tour packages.

“We highly recommend Dimuthu from Tharul Tours! A superb 12 day trip to Sri Lanka, we booked our hotels independently so just needed a car and driver. Dimuthu organised several amazing tours for us, including the train ride from Ella to Nuwara Eliya which we thought we would miss out on. We felt completely safe with Dimuthu, he is a thoughtful tour guide and a very safe driver.”
“Thanks again for the wonderful vacation that you have given us in Sri Lanka!”
