Our team is headed by our managing director Himanthi De Silva, whose personal involvement in the planning process ensures that all your needs are met with careful detail. Himanthi’s wealth of knowledge and years of experience both travelling and curating itineraries in Asia gives us the edge when it comes to planning your Asia getaway.

Himanthi was born and raised in Sri Lanka, speaks the mother tongue and knows Sri Lanka like no other. Spending almost all her free time travelling around the country with her family as a child, her love for Sri Lanka has become one of the strongest elements in her work today. She moved to Tokyo, Japan in 1999 in pursuit of higher education and big dreams. Himanthi’s time in Tokyo and other parts of Japan has given her an unparalleled understanding of the country, it’s culture and people. Himanthi went on to master speaking and writing Japanese in addition to her BA in Travel and Tourism from the prestigious Rikkyo University in Tokyo. On receiving her degree, Himanthi’s dreams of travelling and promoting the destinations she loved was time to be realized.

Moving to the UK in 2007, Himanthi began to work in the travel sector, gaining a thorough on-the-ground operational understanding of the business which added to her sound knowledge of the destinations she was promoting, including Japan, Sri Lanka and surrounding Asian countries to world travellers- in a unique and personal way.

Today, Himanthi’s near 15 years’ experience in the travel industry has made her a world-class travel planning expert, highly sought after for her for creating one-of-a-kind holidays in Asia. Her work experience includes tenures at internationally recognized companies such as Japan Airlines Tours in London and other specialist tour companies dealing with Sri Lanka, and Maldives. The experience she has gathered along the way and her creative approaches to designing tours have never ceased to meet and even exceed her clients’ holiday needs. While curating unique tour packages, Himanthi also built a strong reputation with ground suppliers in each country, allowing her to negotiate the best deals for you. What’s more, See Asia Tours is able to provide a booking guarantee that ensures you get the most flexible options and secure confirmations when you book a journey with us.
