Chandana was very flex & really knowledgeable clearly very proud of his country which was terrific. We designed what we wanted with some great local stops along the way. Chandana even walked Kandy with us assisting us to bargain for a few interesting items. Went to a tea plantation and learnt about the whole process. Had a great driver which is good in this frenetic traffic. Very happy. Robyn
