      Overall trip was very good. Had good driver who knew all the spots and very well .Just on second last day in Kochi when we wanted to do shopping. He left us at hotel saying that he had to go somewhere. So we did shopping on our own by taking auto/ola/uber. Also Alleppey hotel was the best!! The view from hotel was mesmerizing. Overall very good value for money and worth a visit.Would cherish this trip!!! Munnar, Thekkady and Alleppey hotels.

      I was on vacation of 5 days.My first two days were in Munnar,hotel provided (Elysium) there was excellent so was the my 3rd day at Thekkady at Coffee Route hotel.Driver Mr Suresh was a gentleman and provided excellent service.My 4th day was in Alleppey in house boat I will give them 2 star out of 5.House boat was not a good experience, Cleanliness was a major issue bed ,towel,was not up to the mark.Food was very avg ,who offers tea/coffee with only glucose/Parle G type biscuits.We requested a cake for marriage anniversary and they arranged on payment basis which is fine but they charged 600 for such a bad cake that we two couldn't take a bite of it.My 5th day was at Kochi where hotel denied stay to us and told us your travel agent hasn't paid the hotel charges.I tried at the number provided to call in emergency and to my wonder the rep who picked the phone told me ,I m not the person concerned and this is no wrongly given to you.As I was with my wife and 8 month old baby I had no option but to request hotel please allow us stay i will make the payment I to you .However with delay but travel triangle team resolved the issue. Stay in Elysium hotel.Staff was very cooperative .They saw we are with baby they came forward and took the baby so that we can had our breakfast easily.

    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.
