Trip to KeralaDriver 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.
Trip to KeralaGood Ya really it is fine and we are cheated for honeymoon cake cutting with candles in Alleppy
Trip to KeralaPlum 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.
Trip to KeralaOur 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 KeralaNeelema 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,
Trip to KeralaLast two days were not satisfactory either with hotel s , food and sight seeing.
Trip to KeralaI 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

Trip to KeralaI 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 Kochi
Read on to find out why our customers love us!
Though Malayam is the most commonly spoken language in Kochi, most locals do understand both Hindi as well as English.
The best time to visit Kochi is between November and February, when temperatures are most comfortable and the weather is dry.
Start with the very artsy Kashi Art Cafe, hop over for a vegan sandwich to the Solar Cafe, try Norwegian salmon at The Rice Boat, dig into Malabar parottas at History Restaurant or savour traditional Kerala cuisine at the Malabar Junction. Food in Kochi is a delight.
In Kochi, you can buy antiques, crafts and spices from Kochi and most importantly you can join the Onam Festival or the grand Kerala shopping festival if you're a shopaholic.
