Friendly and responsible service. They transfered us comfortably to our home from medical care center situated at koggala.
Rowan was extremely helpful and responsive and the driver was equally friendly and safe. Can't recommend enough that anyone traveling throughout Galle district use this service.
My partner contacted Less Taxi after being recommended by a friend. From the minute we messaged, Ruwan took over and fully organised everything that we mentioned we would like to... read more do and see and gave us a huge amount of information and help throughout the stay and was a continuous support throughout. He organised our driver Mr. Tharaka, who was probably one of the nicest, most genuine people I think I’ve met, who was also one of the most careful and safe drivers and nothing was ever too much trouble. He was always on time, the car was fully cleaned continuously for us and in general he was an absolute pleasure to be with. A genuinely kind person. Overall Less Taxi supplied us with the most amazing service and we cannot recommend them highly enough. We cannot wait to come back to Sri Lanka and use your team again. Thank you again.
Such a thorough and helpful company! Nothing is too much trouble, Ruwan will go out of his way to ensure your trip runs smoothly and he finds you plenty to... read more do if required. The communication can’t be faulted, even before arriving, everything was arranged and double checked, including all covid precautions and regulations. Can definitely recommend!
Last week I took a brief solo trip to Sri Lanka to do two safaris that were on my bucket list. My greatest concern was the cost of taxi services... read more and airport transport in Sri Lanka as it’s rather extreme. However I was super lucky to come across a review for Less Taxi on Trip Advisor. I immediately dropped Ruwan a note and from that moment on it felt like I had a private personal tour operator. He took care of everything from researching the current travel restrictions (even without me asking), to getting me the best airport transfer rates and safari bookings. He was consistently available and at my beck and call via what’s app. The cars and jeeps were impeccably clean and the drivers were absolutely lovely. If you’re concerned about hygiene given the current pandemic then worry no more. The drivers are so on top f it with their PPE Gear and constantly using disinfectant both on you and themselves. My driver even took me to an elephant rehabilitation Center on my way back to the airport as he picked up on my interests and it cost literally nothing. I’ve already forwarded Ruwan’s details to my friend who wishes to do the same trip later this year. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced such outstanding service before. I highly recommend Less Taxi if you want peace of mind during your trip. Thanks Ruwan!
So this was my first time using this service. I was quarantined at the Eden Resort in Beruwala and needed to get back home in Dehiwala.
With all the... read more rules and the details that needed to be shared i couldn't use my usual on demand hires.
I found Ruwan via Google and honestly never regretted once. Will easily recommend his services to anyone
He was very polite and made sure i knew everything I was getting into by using his services.
The driver Tharaka also gets an honorable mention for his great hospitality
I booked a car to go home from Beruwala where I stayed in a Quarantine hotel after I came to Sri lanka. I was in doubt whether local taxi services... read more comply with quarantine regulations in Sri Lanka since I was not allowed to use regular taxis here. But once I sent a message to Less Taxi, Mr. Ruwan himself called upon swiftly and gave me a personalized service, which I didn't expect from them. He was well aware of the current ongoing regulations and we'll updated. Not only that he even offered a very good fare which is far less than any other taxi service in Sri Lanka. He was very kind to answer all of my questions without a seconds delay and I was very pleased even before I started my tour. On the day of the trip the taxi was there right on time without any delay and the quality of the service was excellent. They are extremely flexible and provide a 5 star service to their clients. Price, Vehicle cleanliness, driver and service quality is excellent. Even after that trip I went on other trips to several places in Sri Lanka and they gave me the best deals all of the time. Definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a premium taxi service yet affordable (the best price you can get, the lowest price) to go for Less Taxi.
Booked taxi from Kosgoda to Katunayaka. Promptly answered my call and sorted out the ride according to my needs. Very reliable. Good vehicle and safe driver. Very reasonable and competitive... read more price. Highly recomend
We did not use this service. We used Ruwan at less taxi who I found on a forum. Admin@lesstaxi.com is his contact info and he was the best.... read more Halfway thru a cruise he contacted us to let us know that a very complicated itinerary I have given him was not possible within our time constrictions. So he worked diligently to find us options so we could still do all the things we wanted and more. His drivers knew all the sights, all the shortcuts, all the places for virtually everything and the most wonderful lunch stops. And it was LESS. Ruwan is an entrepreneur gathering smart, kind, well-informed young drivers to take care of tourists all over Sri Lanka. I can't give him enough stars for his follow-up with us and for all the time he took to find us alternatives. He could have said he couldn't do what we wanted. Instead he spent hours finding us options. Please support him and his professional crew. They are reasonable, as well.
Just back from Sri Lanka! Have to say, fantastic service from Mr Ruwan & Less Taxis! Recommended online and didn’t disappoint! Used service 3 times for ~short & long journeys!... read more Didn’t matter where on the island we were, or were going, Mr Ruwan organised local drivers to pick us up! Always kept in touch and confirmed pickup, even without prompting, provided details of driver’s name, car reg, make, model etc. Easy booking on WhatsApp and v punctual service! Drivers v polite, always on time and v competitive fares! Highly recommended!
We needed a taxi to take us to the airport during the Corona curfew. From getting in touch and arranging the pick up to the ride and dropping us off... read more everything was well taken care of.
Used two taxi companies for our three week stay/tour of Sri Lanka. Less Taxi proved itself to be - by far - the most reliable of the two and thus... read more we gave this one most of our business.
Communication was courteous and informative at all times. Information given was accurate. Drivers at all times were a great bunch of guys - no attempt to get us to visit spice gardens, tea factories etc etc while we travelled with them.
Lastly the help extended to us when the Coronavirus kicked-in (reducing inter-area travel) was above and beyond. This is the taxi company you should use.
Thanks for helping us move around in Sri Lanka in a comfortable way. Contact went smooth and always able to book a taxi for the routes we needed. Used this... read more service for every travel (exept the train for Kandy-Ella ofc) during our holiday. Very comfortable cars and drivers who share more about the country :)
Less Taxi is the best! Good prices and great service. The driver was always on time and drove safe. Also if you want to make a short stop at a... read more cultural site, that’s possible for just a bit extra. The contact via whatsapp is super easy and he gets back to you super fast. Unfortunately we had to cut the trip short because of corona, but when we get back we’ll definitely hire less taxi again.
We were recommended this service half way through our Sri Lanka holiday by other travellers. Ruwan was incredibly friendly, easy to contact and helpful.
Arranged 4 separate taxis with this... read more service all at prices better than could get elsewhere in more comfortable cars.
Ruwan provided peace of mind through the whole process also.
Could not recommend enough!
This taxi service was a life saver! Book through WhatsApp, the prices were so reasonable and all drivers were lovely with comfortable cars! If you are using taxis to get... read more around Sri Lanka then I definitely recommend using this service. Ruwan is an absolute legend.
Taxi service based through wattsapp so use wifi (free at all hotels and most restaurants). Arrange by simply sending a message to the coordinator who will arrange a taxi anywhere... read more in sri lanka for a genuinely very good price. Cheaper than uber or pick me. Zero hassle, perfect clear communication. 10/10 will reccomend to anyone travelling to Sri lanka.
Thank you Ruwan (the coordinator guy)
We had a very good driver with a good knowledge of the animals and birds. His English was basic but he was friendly and attentive and used books of the... read more animals and birds to help us. He really could quickly see creatures but it still is well worth working at spotting yourself as you are higher than the driver with an unobstructed view. Entry price varies on the day which is weird but is due to exchange rates and nothing to do with the company but the natural park. The jeeps are 4WD and great but it is very, very bumpy on the tracks and if you have a bad back you may wish to consider this. As normal on a safari you also have to climb up into the back of the jeep.We saw elephants, including one with a baby, crocs, monkeys, deer, buffaloes, jackals, a monitor (I spotted) many different birds including eagles and peacocks and bee eaters. Leopards are very rarely seen. Overall good value.
Perfect. this is the right word. Punctual, clean and cautious. the communication is more than excellent, through what's up, we got an answer anytime almost in real time. We made... read more a lot of reservations and with all of them we've been really satisfied. Great communication via email also before the travel. Can you get a better price? yes, i think so, almost 10/15% less, but I'm not sure about the quality of the service, that here is really good and safe. SAFE.
Excellent service, fast communication through WhatsApp & great prices for comfortable transportation throughout Sri Lanka!
Great service, always on time and good prices. Would definitely recommend Less Taxi to others. Keep up the good work!
Ruwan goes above and beyond and as a matter of fact is amazing, he honestly made our holiday one of the most amazing experiences of my life with his truly... read more outstanding service.
I wouldn't recommend anyone else, all pricing was clearly shown upfront and was very resonable.
If you want to feel safe and secure Less Taxi is for you.
As well as pretty much organising our whole trip without asking for anything in return he checked in daily to ensure everything went to plan and was contactable 24/7 should you require any assistance.
I can sincerely say that our holiday wouldn't have been what it was without his help and I wish him all the best and more in his venture to become the most loved travel deals marketplace in Sri Lanka, although for him I don't think this will be difficult : ) truly amazing and I personally for me think they are already there.
Thank you so so much Ruwan *****
I booked several trips in different parts of the island with them and can highly recommend this company, everything was perfect. Good and friendly drivers, very clean and modern cars,... read more cheap price and always on time! I also appreciate their great customer service.

We used this service a couple of times during our trip in Sri Lanka. One time to go from Sigiriya to Ella and once to go from Galle to the... read more airport. Every time it was perfectly arranged! Driver showed up perfectly in time and everything went according agreement. It’s also super easy to arrange via the whatsapp number & the prices are the best we got (we checked multiple taxis for both rides). So absolutely recommended to make use of this taxi service in Sri Lanka. :)
We had a great tour, in the end >4h. Good and personal service. Would recommend this to all! Not only the safari, but all other taxi trips were great service.... read more
The service was very professional and friendly. I would definitely recommend their services. I was traveling alone so safety was important to me and they made me feel comfortable and... read more safe.
I got in touch with Ruwan at Less Taxi after reading reviews here on Trip Advisor. Long before we ever arrived in Sri Lanka I was already impressed by... read more the speed with which he responded to my queries and the confidence that this gave me in his service. I didn't cross-quote most of the prices he gave me, but one or two that I did came out very competitive. we did everything via Whatsapp which was very convenient and every step of our trip went like clockwork.
He had a driver meet us at the airport and we then had 3 other transfers booked with him. However, when we arrived in Colombo we decided that we would also like to fit in a visit to Sirigirya while we were staying in Kandy, so I got in touch with Ruwan and very quickly he had arranged a day trip for us that then also included a village tour. he also offered other tours, but was not pushy about any of this and quite happy when we told him we had organised similar with our hotels.
the drivers were really good. As anyone who has been there will know, the driving in Sri Lanka can be quite hair-raising and we met other tourists who, while finding heir di=rivers very personable, also found their typical driving style quite anxiety-making with the continuous tail-gating and dangerous overtaking. Ruwans drivers were all much more alum and steady and took things at a nice pace which made us feel very relaxed..after all, your on holiday, what does an extra 5 or 10 minutes matter on a journey...and I doubt the aggressive drivers even gain that much, such is the general traffic. The cars were all clean, comfortable and with good A/c and the drivers were all there on time or usually earlier.
So, can't recommend Ruwan and Less Taxi highly enough!!
