Mr. Nitin, advisor from PostcardTrip is very friendly, professional and knowledgeable person and gave us the best hotels and arranged all the things in excellent way
    . Our driver, Mr. Anand was also very professional and helpful and made our trip very smooth by showing each and every place on the trip. Kerala is a breathtakingly beautiful state full of splendid waterfalls, hill stations, wildlife, backwaters, beaches, temples and palaces, most of all friendly welcoming people. I am sure that I will contact PostcardTrip again for my upcoming trips also. Amazing views, peaceful places.

    The cab was not upto the mark.. it was very dirty and not in very impressive condition. But on top of all this, I didn't receive even a single call from travel triangle executive about how was the trip going.. so I would rather directly book with an agent instead of going through travel triangle.
