Car Rental, Public Transportation, or Driver?

My husband and I will be in Sri Lanka for twelve days in April. We will probably be moving around quite a bit. We are still debating about renting a car from the airport (our general preference when we travel as we like to be spontaneous and explore areas), hiring a driver, or taking trains and local taxis. Any thoughts?

3 weeks with a toddler

Hi all,
I'm going to Sri Lanka in April with my husband and toddler for the honeymoon we never had. We have three weeks. We want to do a combo of luxe relax time and down to earth meet the locals time. Our main constraint is we want to find accommodation where our toddler can sleep in a separate room from us. Otherwise we pretty much have to sit in silence in a dark room from 8pm every night...not much of a trip. A beach cabin with two rooms would be great, or a room with a verandah.

Short (2-day) stopover

I'm planning on arriving in Sri Lanka late (11PM) Saturday night, then flying out Monday evening (7PM). Looking for a quick 2-day tour options. I'm thinking of heading direct from airport to Kandy or somewhere inbetween, then next morning go to Sigiriya/Damballa/Kandy. The 2nd (departure) day then would head back to Colombo. Is it best to get a driver for this whole time or just book separately?

Need a driver for 5 days... Or?

Hello!
In the end of March, me and my boyfriend are going to Sri Lanka. We are wondering if we should hire a driver for our 5 days of sightseeing (Sigirya/Dambulla, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Adam´s Peak and safari at the end before some days (6) with just relaxing.) Or is it cheaper to hire a taxi one destination at a time? If so, can any of you recommend a driver who is reliable, nice and don´t want ALL our money since we are traveling on a budget? And should we book hotell/guesthouse before we go…

Tusker Travels - anyone had any experience of them?

A group of 8 of us (all aged about 60 and all well-travelled over many years) are booked to visit Sri Lanka in March 2015. We are talking to 3 van (with driver) hire companies for car hire for 20 days. Tusker Travel seems much cheaper than the other two. Anyone had any experience with Tusker? Their Facebook page has several endorsements but they are all signed by names with no link, so could have been posted by anybody.
