Baddegama, Southern Province, Sri Lanka

Ayu-bo-van!, (our traditional greeting, which means 'I wish you a long & healthy life!)

I am Dayan from Galle. An energetic professional Chauffeur Tourist Guide with more than 10 years of experience driving, informing and guiding visitors throughout Sri Lanka, possessing a valid tour guide license issued by the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority to conduct tours around the island. Superior talent for entertaining audience members and delivering a high level of customer service.

My grandmother's house is located in Hikkaduwa. So I grew up in the Hikkaduwa area. Hikkaduwa is a largest tourists destination in the World. I had the opportunity to be with tourists from the very early childhood. Therefore, I can understand the needs and feelings of the tourists. My father also served as a travel guide. For a time I had a big desire to become a businessman. But I did not get satisfaction from it. Finally I decided to follow my father's footsteps and get involved in the tourism. Early when I came to the field, I did not decide to develop my professional qualifications. I traveled to several countries. When I visit those countries, I need to get real local experience, not luxury life. But my friends wanted something else. During those trips, I had many things to add to my life. I realized that if I were to serve as a travel guide, I had to fulfill vocational training and other qualifications. Accordingly I am collecting these qualifications by a step by step.

I think meeting people is the best gift in our life, so I always like to meet someone. I am sure, book one of my tours, or ask me to plan your custom day trip. You will bring back home a precious experience, to share and celebrate with your loved ones!

I would be happy to guide you to introduce our art, culture, history and traditions of Sri Lanka, along with the best sightseeing tips, whether you have already planned your trip to Sri Lanka, or not. In this case, I would also be pleased to help you in planning your itinerary, based upon your interests and the intended duration of your stay. I mean, I can arrange any private customized tours on your request.

Looking forward to seeing you soon

When you're visiting temples and Buddhist monuments you want to cover your body properly and you want to remove your shoes and Hats, also please don't take any photograph in the Buddhist temple by posing yourself to the Buddha statue. It's better to wearing white clothes, sandals or Slippers when you're doing sightseeing in Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa and you must wearing shocks while you're walking in the sites by barefoot otherwise it's like a fire walking!!!!!
