      All things were superb. Good hotels with good food. Houseboat was most amazing specially fish fry dish on boat. Services across all places were good n staff were helpful too. I would also like to specially mention our Driver – Rajeev ,such a humble person,he added more fun to the trip. His driving is safe, superb and even the small restaurants or stops that he took for breaks were good . He was extremely co-operative, understanding and was genuinely helping us (communication with local peoples at shops) with whatever we were expecting in our trip to Kerala. View of tea garden was awesome.. All things were superb. Good hotels with good food. Houseboat was most amazing specially fish fry dish on boat.

      Hotels were great except back water ripples, their service was very poor and food was not good at all, food charges were way too high based off of quality of food. thank you.

      There was lot of chasing done by travel triangle for this. Bookings were arranged well in time. Well coordinated by Mamta and Sanjeev. Was not knowing about this earlier...worth the money and time spent. Green woods resort Thekkady is a very good property suggested by you. Do not recommend India vacation houseboat to any of your guests ... No activity planned for the evening...they were not switching on the AC till 9pm...worst part of the trip...could have been better managed

      The hotel in Cochin was not up to the mark. There was a strange smell in the whole hotel. Overall a nice trip, rest of all hotels were great. The driver was nice but one the first day, I expected us to cover some parts of munnar but except for spice garden nothing else was covered and we reached hotel at 3. No extra sites were covered even if we had time. Also in kumarkom also we reached our hotel at 3 after shikara ride. nothing else was covered. Although we enjoyed the stay at the hotel but since we had more time we could have covered other sites in kumarkom. munnar and kumarkom stay along with munnar's landscape.

      I had booked my kerala trip with Rasoone travels through Travel Triangle. Everything staring from pickup till the end of the trip was very well organised and executed. Thanks to Rasoone travels team for making my trip wonderful and memorable. Behaviour of cab driver throughout the trip was one of the important factor in making my trip more memorable. He took us to several places which were not even planned in itenirary and fully cooperated with us even when we got late due to kids.

    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.
