    We have an excellent trip through Namaskaram Travels. The Hotels at Alleppey & Varkala are awesome. Hotel Rooms at Kovalam are also decent but after staying at Varkala - hotel, Kovalam's one is very ordinary. Although the staffs are awesome and helped us a lot at kovalam. Location of Kovalam's hotel
    is very nice and exact on the beach. Our agent Vineet also responded well and also inquired about our tour in between as well. with 2 Kids and a senior citizen, Me & My spouse have enjoyed a lot.
