Amy "Mike and Rihas were absolutely amazing and informative guides and went out of their way to ensure our experience of Sri Lanka was the best it could have been. Mike and Rihas as well as the other One-lifers were all like minded people who completely made the trip for us. The transport was amazing, the coach had air-con and USB ports, which made the long journeys comfortable. Having a coach thro..."

    My wife and I had a fantastic time on the tour! Our guide Michael was professional and organised at all times, and ensured he was available to help or answer any queries. We stayed in a mix of hotels, hostels as well as one night of camping. The itinerary included a mix of activities (hiking, safaris, cooking class to name a few) and relaxation (beach and pool time) to break up the relatively short bus journeys. Sri Lanka itself is a beautiful and diverse country. The locals are extremely friendly. We will definitely be back in the future!

    The tour was amazing and had a variety of trips to show the best parts of Sri Lanka to give us a traditional Sri Lankan experience. We had a great tour group and the guides Mike and Rihas were always friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this trip! I would love to travel with One Life again in the future. :)

    This tour was incredible from start to finish. The accommodation was far beyond my expectations. The travelling around was so easy and comfortable and the experiences on the tour is something I will next forget. Mike & Rihas were great and my partner & I really appreciate everything they did for us. For me they went over and above a tour guide and felt more like part of the group rather than just a guide. Once again it was a great experience which I’m very grateful for and I will be recommending this tour to family and friends.

    Thank for the lovely review Ellliott! We love hearing about our One Lifer’s having an incredible time throughout the country! We will definitely pass this one on to Mike and Rihas, they only want guests to have the best of times in their favourite country! The pictures are great as well, thanks for uploading these! We would love to see you again in another country, Elliott!

    Just got back from the One life tour of Sri Lanka and it was amazing! Wouldn't have been able to see as much of the country if I had travelled alone. The group element of the tour made it so much more fun too! The accommodation was much better than expected and even enjoyed the camping experience too. Food was very limited in the first week but still really good. Cant wait to go on my next One Life tour!

    Thanks for the lovely review, Verity! Glad to hear you had an amazing time. Group elements always make the trip so much better, we love having fellow travellers from all over the world meet! Thanks again Verity and we can’t wait to see you again in Japan or the Philippines!

    This tour by One Life was absolutely fantastic! You really couldn’t travel Sri Lanka and see all the things we saw if you did it independently, there was so much packed into the 12 days, but also a perfect amount of free time to explore ourselves. The quality of the accommodation, food and cultural experiences way exceeded my expectations. We mostly stayed in hotels, but even the hostels and campsite we stayed in were excellent! Travelling across Sri Lanka was also made incredibly easy and convenient with the coach, which literally took us from place to place and even drove with our bags while we rode the Nanu Oya to Ella train. We didn’t have to carry our big bags at all, this was all handled by the excellent coach and hotel staff. My personal highlights included the safari at Udawalawe National Park, climbing Little Adam’s Peak and visiting the turtle sanctuary. There was something for everyone on this trip, and it was great to be in a group of likeminded people. We made friends for life on this trip! Our guides Mike and Rihas were amazing, and they went above and beyond to ensure that we had a trip of a lifetime. Mike’s passion for travel alongside Rihas’ local expertise not only made sure we were able to take in the best that Sri Lanka has to offer, but also made me feel so safe and carefree while travelling the country - we really didn’t have to worry about a thing with these guys about. I’d recommend doing this trip to anyone! Beth

    Thanks for the awesome review, Beth! We’re so glad to hear the accommodation, food, and cultural experiences exceeded your expectations! Sri Lanka has so much to offer and we love to have our One Lifer’s experience only the best of it in the 12 days we have in the country. You are right about Mike and Rihas, together with their experience they make a great team and love to show off their favourite country to the guests! We would love to see you again in another country, Beth!

    This tour was everything we could have asked for and more! The itinerary was jammed packed with amazing experiences, the food was well thought out and our tour guides Mike and Rihas couldn’t have been any more accommodating. Personal highlights were Little Adams Peak as the views were out of this world, camping in an eco site near udawalawe national park and of course seeing lots of elephants ! Everything was well planned and we didn’t have to worry about anything this trip, including carrying our huge bags from hotel to hotel. We also had an air conditioned coach to get around, which was perfect as if we took local transport on our own we’d have never been able to see as much. Mike would always give us clear overviews of what we’d be doing each day and there was no question about Sri Lanka that our local guide Rihas couldn’t answer. We met some incredible, like minded people on our tour and plenty of inspiring locals who really want the best for their community, and One Life is certainly helping them. We’ve made some friends for life and ticked off plenty of our bucket list, including seeing blue whales in the wild ! Connie and Beth
    One Life Adventures commented on this review
    Wow Connie and Beth, sounds like you had an amazing time and we’re so happy to have had you aboard with us in Sri Lanka! Meeting life long new friends, getting to see blue whales, and having a stress free travel throughout a country with so much to do is what we want to have all of our guests experience! Thank you for the review, we really hope to see you again in another country!

Mike and Rihas as well as the other One-lifers were all like minded people who completely made the trip for us. The transport was amazing, the coach had air-con and USB ports, which made the long journeys comfortable. Having a coach throughout the trip meant we could safely leave our belongings on it which came in handy, especially when travelling the scenic train ride. It also meant we had no agg with carrying our rucksacks to and from local bus stations etc. Accommodation was all obviously well thought out to ensure the best experience. The variety of food and accommodation was amazing and the local campsite in udawalawe was by far the best dinner I had. We had such an amazing experience that we are looking to book another trip with Onelife in the near future. Amy & Elliott

    We LOVE your photos, thanks for sharing them! What a review for the team, thanks so much Amy! We will pass this along to Mike and Rihas, they will be very happy to know they provided an amazing experience for our One Lifer’s in their favourite country. We’re always happy to have travellers like yourself on board with us and we can’t wait to see you again in another country, Amy!

    The first tour that I have ever done and I can honestly say it is going to be so hard to top, mike went above and beyond to make sure that everyone was happy and always felt included, couldn't have asked for a better person to show us around Sri Lanka, can't wait to book the next one with One Life Adventures

We know he has a lot of travel experience outside Sri Lanka and he hoped he was able to give you advice on further travels! We can’t wait to have you aboard Japan or Philippines, Ryan!

    Absolutely fantastic experience and I will definitely be doing another one life trip. Mike was a great guide and I enjoyed the fact that the company are very environmentally aware. The use of a local guide also enhanced the experience and is a great addition to the tour.
    One Life Adventures commented on this review
    We’re glad you had an amazing experience, Kate! Being environmentally aware is one of our top priorities and we love to practice mindful travel and are always looking at ways to reduce or negate the environmental effects of travel! We hope to see you again in Japan or Philippines, Kate!
