      cab drivers give excellent service. As per Hotel vouchers Services not provided by agent(Allapey Bout House). After 1st Payment agent not book my hotel after giving me voucher. I call many time to agent (Yogeshbhai) he is replayed same answer at all time. "Yes booking is confirmed " when I call hotel or resort (8 time) they say no booking of your name is here. Never Book flight Ticket from Aryans Travel . Agent not refunds my full amount of flight cancellation. When my flight is canceled I called spice jet for refund query he said we refund full amount of your flight cancellation (17400) in travel agents account.but agent Yogeshbhai only refund 16768.00 only. In Allapey Bout House we books honeymoon package but agent not booked honeymoon package. In our voucher also return for honeymoon package . we expense more 1000 rs for honeymoon package Now it's time to say Bye bye kerala #god_own_country with golden memories And also thanks to our driver bijubhai #uncke_with_golden_heart❤❤ to always stay with us within our wonderful journey

      Everything was perfect starting from pick up to drop.One small piece of advice please deploy a cab driver who is well conversant in English or Hindi.And also advise him to guide properly regarding which places to visit. Driving towards Kovalam from Munnar.A fantastic drive.

    • Trip to Kerala

      I used Travel Triangle and a few people reached out to me with different quotation but I went with Travel Unbounded as they were happy to customise according to my needs. But I really need to point out: DRIVER 1. We did not get the car we were promised and the car had a half broken glass. 2. Our drivers kept changing and we were given the wrong details of the person and car. 3. Driver hardly knew any Hindi and nor did he know good which made our trip more than just difficult. 4. Driver stressed us to go places that he thought were worth going too even when they were out of the way. 5. The first driver took parking money from us whereas the second driver never asked for it. So was it on us or no? 6. The driver took us to the beach where we could only spend 20 mins knowing the fact we only had half a day. If we would have known kovalam beach was next to our hotel and we would have loved to have a dip there instead of preferring a boat ride AGAIN. CULTURAL ACTIVITIES 1. We were asked by the driver to see kathakali at twice saying its one of the best. 2. We were repeatedly asked to do safari whereas, we could have considered some other thought over options. 3. The house boat was platinum but smelled of petrol the whole time we were in the room, which even had an AC. Also, we understand Kerala tourism is taken seriously by the state govt but really didn't feel like we had a say in what we wanted to do or how we felt. And It really matters how your driver describes the place and curates the trip for you and your compatibility with him. But overall I really think if we would have had another person with a different attitude, we would have remembered more happy stuff than just this.
