Ruwan covers the basics competently, and is a great guide for a general interest tour. However, for anyone interested in plunging deeper, he can offer a wealth of sophisticated and nuanced insight into his country's cultural, social, and economic history — as well as contemporary trends and developments. We feel lucky to have been able to travel with Ruwan. He added enormously to our understanding and enjoyment of this friendly and charming country. He is one of best!
