    • Trip to Kerala

      Great travel agency. Support(Ms Renu) through out the trip is excellent. Sujith (Cab) was very wonderful during the ride and guiding. The butterfly cruise (boathouse) service could have been much better in food and interaction. Elephant ride and Jeep Safari is must to watch. Entirely a great place. Really god's place (Heavenly feeling)

    • Trip to Kerala

      It was a good trip but I was expecting it to be excellent. The resort at Munnar was very nice and they served good food with great hospitality. The hotel room at Thekkady was non AC and am not sure of the reason for it. I had to pay extra amount to get AC functional in the room and to my surprise it was mentioned in the itinerary that it’s a deluxe room. The houseboat experience was terrible. It’s room and washroom was very untidy and there were mosquitoes and spiders inside. The food served in the boat was also tasteless. Since the houseboat was stinking and it started raining, we deboarded it after a couple of hours and we ended up spending extra money by booking a hotel in Alleppey. Am sure all this could have been better planned and managed. Over and above this, Mr. Naveen from Pacifica argued with me when I raised these concerns over the call and I must say that he is really unprofessional. However Prashant Arora from his team has only been my point or contact and he was really helpful all through the journey.

    Yes, one can visit Kerala in the month of April when the weather is pleasant and mild.

    August to March is the best time to visit Kerala for backwaters.

     

    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.

    A variety of exotic species of wildlife can be found at Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary like elephants, civet cats, jungle cats, tiger, panthers, wild dogs, monkeys, and many other such animals.

    The entry fee for Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary is INR 110 for adults and INR 40 for children.

     

    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.
