The beauty of the Kumarakom Backwaters lies in its tranquility. A sense of peace prevails as you glide across the calm canals, past the small fishing villages and further towards the edge of the sea.

A sightseeing tour of the Kumarakom Backwaters will surely make your holiday is Kerala more memorable!

      We had a wonderful time in Kerala and had a great person in Manisha who helped us make the right decisions. The stays at "Coffee Routes" and "Dream Catcher resort" were cater made for a grand gateway from the bustling surroundings and busy life and we cannot thank "there holidays there" and Manisha in choosing these exotic places for us. The weather was a spoilsport at Alleppey but we had a nice comfortable stay in the houseboat. Slight issues with the the AC functioning in the houseboat but that was a local issue. Manisha checked with us at each stopping point during the trip and made additional arrangements when we requested for a different pick-up/drop-off point. A very memorable and wonderful trip for me and my family. There Holidays There and TT are highly recommended for anyone"s Kerala tour from a very satisfied me :)

      Hmm ...there is a confusion with hotel documented and alloted one. there is a confusion in house boat . It delayed my time and a confusion state of mind of customer. 1)For hotels .. documented is karar gardens but alloted elephant route that to with out prior intimation, after calling to agent they confirmed the change of hotel.. 2) hotel @ merina is not fine which is without fan and poor efficient AC .they denyed to change the room 3) there is no prior intimation about which house boat to be taken..and confusion with sharing travels and excellent holidays as who booked the same and finally get in a house boat and immediately when it started to sea other person called and told to hold it and get on another boat. Yeah..coming to best memories the guide cum driver is supported well in above mentioned issues and at the same time his punctually and driving withe safety is excellent..

      My experience with the Travel agent Renu was not what I expect from a service provider. I had organized this trip for my parents on the occasion of their anniversary and had specifically instructed her to be flexible to their comfort and make the trip relaxed for them. I faced some issues in getting the package details and hotels finalized with her but ultimately we settled on the hotels of my choice and thus an increased invoice. On the day 1 itself we were assigned a driver who was not aware of the correct hotel name and forced them to go to the beach in the afternoon instead of the hotel to rest first after their long tiring flight journey. The driver was rude and not at all professional and hence I felt the need to get him changed as my parents had to travel with him for the next 7 days. I found it very difficult to get this message across to Renu and after 2 hours on phone and messages I was able to convince the team to get him changed. I agree that ultimately the driver was changed and the new driver was extremely good and thankfully the rest of the days my parents had am amazing trip. But I still feel it is necessary to highlight the issues I faced on the first day and hope this is not repeated in the future. I would advise Renu to please listen to the customer and then favor the driver's remarks. Overall my parents trip experience was very comfortable and I appreciate all the timely help. Thank you for all your efforts in arranging the same.

      we were disappointed with the last moment changes in hotel. I and my wife gone through many hotels and finally we liked one hotel which was Changed by our tour agent when we were going to land in cochi without our confirmation. The best thing happened was our tour cab driver he was really fun meeting with santosh and gave us knowledge our whole Kerala. In Alleppey we were expected to have candle light dinner but it was fake. there was no candle light dinner. It seems if you have known person or a known guide you can plan your trip by yourself because I met with my relatives accidentally at Nagpur airport and he had planned the whole trip by himself.
