    • Trip to Kerala

      Overall my experience to Kerala with family is a memorable. The customer service support is very good and prompt. The hotel at Munnar -White Myst is a resort on a hill lock with beautiful nature surrounding. However, the food and restaurant of the hotel is not good. The break fast included inthe package is disappointing and dinner also we don't have any choice nor there is a restaurant near by. The maintenance of the hotel is not good like lighting, swimming pool etc. The hotel at Thekkady is average and not having restaurant but near by hotels are available. The cab driver was bit hasty but customer support took good care as required. We missed boating trip to Periyar laje.House boat experience in Aleppy was good but we felt we should have engaged house boat for day cruise and could have covered one more day at Thekkady or Munnar or a trip to Guruvayur temple. The food for vegitarian is not upto the satisfaction Munnar visit and cruise in house biat at Alleppey

      Got in touch with Namaskaram through TT. Vineet was cooperative from the start and provided all the required info and options of hotels locations etc. The provided us with a tempo traveller as we were 6 adults with an infant. The trip was well planned and we were able to cover all the places comfortably. Special mention of our Driver Rahul who was humble and also accomodating to our request for dinner or shopping. Al in all it was a great trip with a lot of memories.

    • Trip to Kerala

      I travelled Kerala (Munnar/Thekkady/Alleppy/Athiapally/Kochi) in Oct 2019 with friends. Prebooking response was very good with Mr. Abdul (agent) from KING FOREST HOLIDAYS. He has suggested overall plan, resorts as per our requirement and we could close on the booking soon with them. Immediately after booking, agent informed us we are not getting rooms in one resort for which we agreed upon. This disappointed us as this should have been checked with hotels/resorts just before paying token amount. Later involved Travel Triangle and this issue was sorted out. Small thing but without involving traveller if this would have got sorted it would have been much better. We started our travel and overall experience if I want say, it was awesome, we were happy at the end. Positives: 1) Cab driver was very good/polite and good guide, not faced any issue. Cab cleanliness was maintained throughout the trip. Driver was always very punctual and excited to take us to places 2) Munnar resort provided was a very beautiful property 3) Houseboat experience was excellent, flawless, safe. Food was simple and delicious with varieties. The best stay. Should never miss houseboat experience in Alleppy 4) Mr. Abdul was taking our feedback every day and felt engaged/reliable Improvements Required: 1) In Munnar, the resort was far from the city which was ok as the resort was very good. Second half day, we spent in Wonder Vally Adventure park which was nice experience but after that driver took us to the next spot without telling us how much time it will take. It took almost 2.5 hrs and we were totally disappointed. Driver should keep telling these things as well so that we can decide if we want to go or not. 2) Same evening, with our first cab, faced a small accident (basically minor dashes from a vehicle behind), which damaged the car dicky. To sort out overall thing including FIR, it took ~3 hrs and then as heavy fog and traffic., we reached our resort very late. Lost that evening which we wanted to spend in the beautiful resort. Here, some alternate cab should have been arranged soon. We stay just 1-2 nights at some place and pay for that, so something to take care. 3) In Thekkady resort, room given was small but we got an upgrade and had nice stay there. Very polite Hotel Manager. 4) Food was ok ok in all resorts except Houseboat. 5) Kerala Massage suggested by cab driver was not at all good. They should know real good places to suggest as money spent was not small.

      Travel agent didn't provided proper details of trip and at the last moment he changes sequence of visiting the places, and because of that we had to waste 2 days of our holiday in Munnar. And when we discussed these with travel agent, there was zero support from them, ruining our last 2 days of vacation. Vagamon

    • Trip to Kerala

      We visited Kerala in the mid of October for our family trip. It was the right time to visit to Kerala. Weather was perfect. Little dizzling of rains everyday and start of winter. Short Details of trip - 14th to 17th October'19 (4D-3N) Kochi - Munnar - Alleppey - Kochi 2 days stay at Munnar Hills 1 day stay at Alleppey houseboat We booked our trip through Funday Travels. They have planned very nice and hassle free Kerala trip for us. Notable points of the trip - 1. Trip planner(Priyanka) - Priyanka was very helpful throughout the trip. I remember I called her number of times to get various information, multiple changes, inclusions/exclusions, budget discussion etc. But she was very calm and patient throughout the process and helped me to plan nice comfortable trip. 2. Special thanks to Amit as well. In Priyanka's absence, he helped us to get all requirements in time and there will not be any problem. Both Priyanka/Amit were in touch with us throughout the trip and taking follow ups everyday to make sure everything goes well. 3. Cab Driver(Unni) - Mr. Unni was very kind person. He was with us all four days and we really enjoyed his company. He guided us to various locations and also was sharing useful informations about Kerala while driving. Once again, Thank you Funday Travels and Travel Triangle for such a wonderful trip. Kerala was Amazing!
