I got in touch with traveltriangle and gosthala when I was planning a 7 day trip of Tamil Nadu starting from Mahabalipuram to Madurai covering 4 coastal cities. When I started having detail discussion with them they made me realize that how far the distances would be and how we can break the journey and cover more cities. They comfortably planned the itenary and setup a 7 city tour in 8 days which was remarkable.

Our trip to Tamilnadu through Gosthala went very well. It was all well planned and smooth. Thanks to Harini who has been coordinating the trip and was reachable all along the trip. Driver Sankar was very helpful and he kept the vehicle clean. We had a peaceful darshan and sight seeing. Accommodation was all good except Gopi Nivas Grand hotel in KanyaKumari. It was stinking with cigarette smell and bath rooms were not clean. Apart from this hotel all other hotels were good. We didn't expect Gopi Nivas Grand to be so bad.

We have great experience with Gosthala's service. It was very good time and we enjoyed a lot. At Kovalam, hotel stay with complimentary breakfast service, restaurant staff should be cooperative and provide proper service. Kovalam hotel location is very good but still hotel management needs more attention for hospitality and service. So travellers can refer more people to stay.
