      Chandra's 6 days trip to Athirapally

      The cab driver (Mr.Anup) was very very nice. He guided us wonderfully throughout our journey and thanks god the driver was so helpful. But we were pretty disappointed with Capital travel as the agent hardly communicated with us. We were constantly seeking information like drivers phone number, what
      documents we were supposed to submit, location of houseboat and we got response only after repeated queries from our end. All communication were initiated from our end and not a single information was given from travel agent on their own. Thekkady boat ride on the Periyar lake

      A well planned trip. Munnar and houseboat experience was great. Hotels and other services were good too. Just faced one issue initially, instead of sedan that was mentioned in the package, we got a hatchback car which made travelling a bit uncomfortable but since we were just 2 and had very less lug
      gage we managed. Agent mentioned that they cant arrange a sedan because of high demand. Overall a good experience.

      Bhushan's 7 days trip to Athirapally

      Trip was Ok- OK. Good experience with Kerala. Planning could have been better. I had to trave 7-8hrs Journey one day, which could have been avoided if we had reordered the destinations. I was expecting this from BackToTravel as they are experienced. Munnar hotel was best, Tekkadi hotel was good.
      Kovalam hotel, Nilkanatha, was very bad. There was no lift, no wifi.I shared photos with Back2Travel team. Houseboat was old and uncleaned. Not much fancy as Kashmir's Dal lake houseboat. The houseboat food was good. Fish fry with curry leaves and Sambar rice. And they arranged a cake for us. Rest was ok. Cab driver was good. Mukundan. He suggested many good things. We gave him one day off and travel to Thiruvananthapuram Padmanabh Swamy temple by our own. It was good experience travelling in the state without knowing their language. Good to interact with local people. Unfortunately, because of bad weather, we couldn't reach Swami Vivekananda rock. It was just 500 meters away from us. Overall good trip. Try to minimise road journeys by planning properly. Thanks.
