    Piyush's 7 days trip to Kovalam

    1) About the travel agent - The attitude was very laid back. I always had to chase the agent myself for each and every thing multiple times. Be it the hotel voucher or the driver details or the complimentary shikara ride. To be honest, did not like the services. 2) About the cab driver - He was way too pushy for his own itinerary. Was reluctant to follow the itinerary. In fact half of the time we had to inform what the itinerary was. The bluetooth was not working in the whole trip so we could not hear our songs which we planned. At times he was very rude. Not a pleasant experience overall.
