My husband and I recently had the pleasure of spending two weeks in Sri Lanka with Chinthaka as our chauffeur/guide.   Whenever you do a private journey, there is always some concern about the guide you will use because you spend a lot of time with them.   We were very lucky to be partnered with Chinthaka.   He was relaxed, but professional.   He is knowledgeable about history, culture, customs, nature, birds & animals.   And, he is interested in having conversations so he can share information about Sri Lanka but also to learn more about the world.   We had some fun (and funny) conversations.    He is well educated, interested in business, food, travel, etc.  We would highly recommend that anyone considering a private journey to Sri Lanka engage the services of Chinthaka!    Even his driving is great in a country where that is challenging.   Highly recommend!
