My wife and I used Saji Tours over a number of days, collection and drop off from Anuradhapura Rail Station when we arrived and left, a full-day trip to look at Anuradhapura, a full day-trip to Polonnaruwa and then to take us to Sigeria then onto the Dambulla caves and then down and onto Kandy. Throughout he was polite, courteous, he drove carefully, helped when asked and knew all the little eating and craft places that could be visited on the way to and back from the main attractions. He is a very nice, careful and thoughtful guide.
His car is clean and well maintained: has excellent and well-functioning air conditioning and the car is comfortable enough to snooze quietly in the back of.
On the way to and from Polonnaruwa he stopped and looked for elephants by the roadside (and we saw many) on several different occasions and took us to a wonderful place for lunch - Jaga - which is well worth a diversion to.
I can't finish this without saying that he also took us way off the tourist trail to two places near Mihintale that quite clearly are used for and by locals. The first - the Black Pond - was during a festival so we were surrounded by local people meditating which curtailed what we could see but it was very unique seeing a special place being used so extensively by local people as it was intended to be used. As for the second - I have no idea what it was called but we were the only ones there and needed the permission of the resident Monks to go up. A very nice and fantastic extra thrown in because he wants to show you his local area.
Great guy and great to be with.......
