I emailed a large number of Travel Companies in Sri Lanka as I wanted my tourist dollars to remain in Sri Lanka. I received a very prompt and competitive email from Himantha of One and Only Travels.

Several follow up emails lead to an itinerary which catered for our needs.

Madawa our driver/guide was waiting for us as we exited customs and immigration.

The vehicle for our travels was very clean and very comfortable for our two adult passengers. Our driver was always very, very safe.

ALL accommodations exceeded our expectations whilst remaining in our budget. One and Only's itinerary in most instances was for Dinner Bed and Breakfast. Some travellers might feel that this did not allow us to savour original Sri Lankan cuisine but as two retirees we appreciated NOT having to find dinner after a full day's activities. Quotes from other companies had been mainly B and B.

Also included in our quote were ALL entrance fees and safari charge. We knew exactly what was contained in our fully inclusive tour.

Unfortunately, we had to shorten our planned four-week tour due to the effects of Coronavirus.

Himantha, from One and Only, was frequently in touch with us and organised an alternate program which allowed us to depart Sri Lanka as the airport was closing. Adjustments were made to our tour costs and there were NO problems financially as we left early.

When we return to Sri Lanka, we will definitely be travelling with One and Only Travels.

Thanks Himantha! Thanks Madawa!

Given the Covid situation and the complexity of trying to see as much as Sri Lanka as we could in 11 days, we decided to book with a tour company.

After much research, I reached out to Himantha at One and Only Travels and was impressed with his speed of response and honesty. After some back and forth (what we were interested to see/do, our likes and dislikes etc) he put a program together for us (including the fabulous hotels they booked) - it was exactly what I was looking for, and the price was fair!

Our itinerary activities included: visiting temples and historic sites, climbing the Lion Rock Fortress, traditional village experience, scenic train ride, climbing Little Adam's Peak, visiting the tea plantation, safari at Yala National Park, turtle hatchery and time on the beautiful beaches in Sri Lanka.

What made this trip so amazing was undoubtedly our guide - Roshan Indika Batukandage. He was a wonderful ambassador for the country. His knowledge of history, to birds, to facts about each site we visited was outstanding. His love of his "job" and making sure that we were enjoying ourselves went beyond expectations. I cannot say enough about his positive energy, his friendliness and care for us.

I would not hesitate recommending One and Only Travels if you are visiting Sri Lanka. It is as simple as telling them how many days you have, what you want to see/do (cultural sites, adventure, beach etc), and let them arrange everything for you.

An absolutely fantastic company.

We were very impressed by the reactivity of One & Only Travels since the first contact. The itinerary proposed was fine tuned specifically for us. The communication was absolutely outstanding before, during and after our trip. Everything was easy. Our program was a perfect balance between site seeing and relaxing in fantastic places and was excellent value for money.

Our guide Roshan Indika was amazing: professional, friendly, very knowledgeable and easy going. We really appreciated his company.

Sri Lanka is a fascinating destination. We had a fantastic time. Felt really safe in general. The measures taken everywhere to prevent the spread of Covid-19 are remarkable.

We are very grateful to Roshan and One & Only travels and strongly recommend them.

This was our first visit to Sri Lanka and we are glad to have booked our tour through One and Only Travels.
Right from our arrival to our departure, the tour was well organized. The cost of the tour being USD1000 for two persons ended up being double the cost, as we had to pay for the entrance fees for the major tourist attractions.
The guide cum driver Roshan Indika Batukandage of Roshan Holidays was very good and flexible with the tour programme. I would recommend Roshan, if anyone requires a SriLanka guide.
We really enjoyed our trip, the crowds were less due to Corona Virus.
Places visited Sigiriya, Kandy, NuwaraEliya, Ella, Galle, Bentota and Colombo.

We have just returned from an amazing 12 day tour of Sri Lanka for our honeymoon. We had to make a last minute booking as Sri Lanka had only just come off the red list. Himantha communicated quickly and efficiently and was able to accommodate all of our wishes, adding different places to our itinerary. He adapted the tour to include less beach stops as we were keen to see as much of the beautiful country as possible. The hotels we stayed in were wonderful, Covid safe and we felt so lucky.

Roshan was our tour guide for the trip and it wouldn’t have been the same without him. He instantly made us feel safe, with his exceptional driving, warmth and kindness. His knowledge of his country is outstanding and we have learnt so much about the culture, history, nature, and politics. The stories made the wonderful places we visited come to life and we could not have asked for a more memorable experience. He also offered to take photos for us and helped us see so many animals (much like being on safari!)

We will be recommending Sri Lanka and One and Only Travels to our friends and family and hope to be lucky enough to return one day.

Thank you for a wonderful experience.

I heard about One & Only Travels through a simple Google search but what made them stand out was their fantastic service and quality from beginning till end of the trip.

We booked a 7day trip (me and 2 other friends) with 4 and 5 star hotels, all of which were arranged wonderfully. Himantha also accommodated to our specific requests very easily. Accommodation was superb, pricing was fantastic but best of all was our guide Mr Danush!

He was most pleasant and welcoming, took care of us and guided us through the whole trip. He was also such a dedicated photographer! So many of our lovely memories of Sri Lanka were captured wonderfully by Mr Danush.

In addition to all of this, Sri Lanka was the best place to go on a girls-only trip, full of adventure, beauty, relaxation and breathtaking beaches. Our trip had a little bit of everything, leaving us with such a great impression of this lovely country and friendly locals.

I would most certainly recommend going with One and Only Travels, and specifically with Mr Danush! No complaints whatsoever, only a trip full of beautiful memories!

We had such an amazing vacation in Sri Lanka. Himantha assisted in booking everything, she even added on extras that we asked for, she was willing to assist no matter what day or time. Our tour guide Roshan was the most humble person and gave us memories to cherish for a lifetime. He made sure we saw all of the wonderful things the areas we visited had to offer and got me everything I wanted to taste. He went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and educated us about the history, culture and food in Sri Lanka. I will highly recommend doing your Sri Lanka tour with One and Only Travels, you will not be disappointed.

We highly recommend this travel agency. We searched them thru Facebook and above all the travel agencies that we’ve searched, they offered the most competitive and reasonable price! Our 2 weeks time in Sri Lanka has been smooth sailing thanks to our tour guide/private driver/impromptu photographer rolled into one, Roshan Kenneth. He has been kind and patient with us. He really took good care of us like a father. He made sure we have our valuables in check which were lost and found a few times. With little notice, he delivered upon request such as a quick stop by a barbershop, and shops. He shared his knowledge of Sri Lanka and most importantly he kept us safe despite the protest and long winding drive.

Honestly? just excellent service from start to finish. Himantha was patient and so responsive. He really listened and put together an itinerary that covered everything we wanted and more. The best thing was being able to mix different styles of accommodation on our customised tour. Each hotel we could see on trip adviser and personally approve. Himantha was clearly thinking through all our comments to get it right for us. The time he put in certainly paid off. And what can I say about our guide Danush. Friendly and flexible but always professional. More like our host than our driver. We will all remember his humour and kindness. A wonderful holiday with a wonderful company. Happy to wholeheartedly endorse this company.

We enjoyed a fantastic 5 day tour with One & Only Travels, around the cultural triangle area. They were happy to tailor an itinerary to our needs (we specifically wanted to cycle around Polonnaruwa and spend a decent amount of time exploring the Royal Botanical Gardens near Kandy, for example). The hotels provided were top quality and the price was great value in our opinion.

Our guide/driver Roshan was very professional and patient, coping easily with our poor planning/indecision/last minute changes.
His knowledge was incredible - he seems to have memorised every detail of the history and culture of the entire region! He was very personable too - telling us about his family and how life in Sri Lanka is for the locals.
He was always trying to give us the very best experience and making it easy for us.

We will be recommending One & Only Travels to our friends and family
