    • Trip to Kerala

      Driver guide us which place he know, not that written in our quote. Day 1 he took us to the place where additional charges we have to pay. But the driver mr Suresh is a very good person, punctual, trust worthy. Best place we found is munnar. One of the best place I ever visited next to andaman. The site seen is amazing. Travelling with jeep on the offhighway road one of the best experience we have. Very experienced driver , so thrilling road. Next allepie boat house . Very good experience in boat house and site seen are amazing. Kovalam beach not up to the mark. Only that beach we visited and some local market.

      Plum Judy was good but hotel holiday Vista in Thekkady was pathetic, I was informed that it was 5 star property but I would rate it 3 star property with very poor or no amenities. We had wonderful cab driver and it was great to have such supportive driver in a trip. Overall trip planned was good.

      Our trip was 8 days in Kerala. Its nice experience with Travel Triangle & Getz Destinations T&T. Every thing was good except the car provided to us, it's very old model car. But the driver Sajeeth is good..He showed us all the imp places in kerala and responded well.. Hotels are good too.. But food is avg in some hotels. And travel agent Divya is also nice. She called me daily asking abt our trip, whether everything is gng fine or not. Really liked the gesture. Munnar, Alleppey,Kovalam & poovar are some of the places that couples can enjoy. Overall it was a nice trip. Thanks to Travel Triangle & Getz Destinations.

    • Trip to Kerala

      Neelema had put lot of efforts to make our trip good, however hotels at munnar, tekkady & house boat has not met required rating which was agreed (ie., 3star). more focus / improvement required to verify authenticity of hotels. most of the hotels enroll as 3 star but they are not having all the facility and amenities which is defeating purpose of spent on hotel. Request to ensure age of child are mentioned in the offer to avoid issues post payment for package. consider below feedback as lessons learnt and consider in future bookings to other customers for making their trip better,

      I went to kerala on 24nov2018 with Sharing Travels Pvt LTD through travel triangle and I must say that, these guys are very professional and efficient at the same time, the kind of services I got from Sharing Travels was beyond my expectations, be it hotels, cab, driver etc. Everything was perfect. They provided more than what they have committed. I am very much satisfied and looking forward to more trips with you guys. Thanks.. Deepak Chaudhary I have been to pine tree resort and it's a very nice property and fit into the budget also, the services of all the given hotels, cab driver etc was just perfect, everything was perfectly managed and coordinated by Sharing Travels Pvt LTD. The best part is that, the owner Mr. Smith himself looks into each and every aspect of the booking and ensure that we don't face any issues while traveling. Great service

      I am extremely pleased and delighted to post the review about our honeymoon trip to Kerala just a few days back. The trip was very well planned wherein we covered Munnar, Thekkady, Allepey and Kovalam . The staying was all 4-star properties with outstanding location and ambience. Our driver Mr. Shafeeq has become more of a friend to us. He was extremely generous, polite and helpful to us. He kept recommending us places to visit. Tree house and houseboat experience is really awesome. I recommend TravelTriangle and STS Travels to all the people worldwide to atleast consider their services in case you have plans to visit Kerala. Thanx to STS team and Mr Jineesh the coordinator of our trip.

    FAQ's of Kerala

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Sharing a houseboat or having one exclusively to yourself depends on the package you have taken. Share your requirements with the travel agent in advance to avoid last minute hassles.

    With most airlines imposing a 20 kg limit on baggage, one must make sure to not bring excess baggage. Sunscreen and mosquito repellant are a must have, apart from airy cotton apparels and comfortable footwear. Also make sure that you leave enough space inyour bags for taking back home souvenirs from the state.

    Some temples in Kerala do not allow photography of the idols and the temple premises. Also, Indian government prohibits photography of bridges and hydroelectric projects in the state

    During the off-season, hill stations like Munnar are cool enough to travel to. However, places such as Alleppey and Kumarakom are pretty hot for a visit. Monsoon season does not see a lot of tourists but the lush greenery all around will ensure tourists will have a great time.

    The off season in Kerala is from April to May, during which time it is too humid for comfort. The monsoon season here is from June to August.
