Trip to KeralaThere was lot of chasing done by travel triangle for this. Bookings were arranged well in time. Well coordinated by Mamta and Sanjeev. Was not knowing about this earlier...worth the money and time spent. Green woods resort Thekkady is a very good property suggested by you. Do not recommend India vacation houseboat to any of your guests ... No activity planned for the evening...they were not switching on the AC till 9pm...worst part of the trip...could have been better managed
Trip to KeralaThe hotel in Cochin was not up to the mark. There was a strange smell in the whole hotel. Overall a nice trip, rest of all hotels were great. The driver was nice but one the first day, I expected us to cover some parts of munnar but except for spice garden nothing else was covered and we reached hotel at 3. No extra sites were covered even if we had time. Also in kumarkom also we reached our hotel at 3 after shikara ride. nothing else was covered. Although we enjoyed the stay at the hotel but since we had more time we could have covered other sites in kumarkom. munnar and kumarkom stay along with munnar's landscape.
Trip to KeralaTravel agent have not change my munnar resort that I have not like that resort. Full trip was excellent except munnar resort(river tree).
Trip to KeralaI had booked my kerala trip with Rasoone travels through Travel Triangle. Everything staring from pickup till the end of the trip was very well organised and executed. Thanks to Rasoone travels team for making my trip wonderful and memorable. Behaviour of cab driver throughout the trip was one of the important factor in making my trip more memorable. He took us to several places which were not even planned in itenirary and fully cooperated with us even when we got late due to kids.
Trip to KeralaTravel agent was no where helpful. Every time he just cut a sorry figure and said nothing can b done. Houseboat was good and the driver was very helpful and cheering throughout the trip
