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

    • Trip to Kumarakom

      Me along with my friends have traveled to Kerala to visit Alleppey, Munnar, Kumarakom, Alleppey, Kovalam and Cochin for 9 days with Raisoone Travels. Ranjan from Raisoone Travels helped us to choose and visit best places with reasonable package but with premium properties. Our overall trip went very well with out any hassles. On tour support was also superb, we got some issues during check-in to Kumarakom Hotel but it was resolved immediately by Raisoone Travels, this is why you should book your tour with good travel agency. They provided us a very good customer service with very well behaved professional driver who is been very supportive through out our journey. I am proudly rating them 5 Star for all the support and services during trip. Willing to travel with Raisoone Travels again in the future !!!!

      Kerala trip to Guruvayur, Alleppy, Kumarakom& Thiruvananthapuram was truly enjoyable. Highlight of the trip was the journey in the houseboat which was new experience. Last but not the least is the services rendered by Mr Sharan Kumar, driver accompanying us on the trip. TRULY MEMORABLE.

    • Trip to Kumarakom

      The fact that Kerala itself is such an awe of beauty it can always make one ignore the negative aspects of any trip. Mountains, valleys, backwater, beaches, forests and every other aspects of nature makes this place itself an one man army. To talk about Travel Triangle, thanks a lot for arranging such an wonderful trip. The travel expert Anita was always responsive and a call or text away from reach. It was heavy rain and bad weather just 3days before our trip but Anita and her team made us always feel safe with the positive vibes and live information. The next part is the car and our driver Binil, probably one of the best part of the trip and a truly good man. Always punctual very friendly and kindof our tour guide, Thanks a lot to him. But two things that i must be honestly say I didnt like from the team: 1. Before the booking , i asked and confirmed many a times about extra bed as there was a lady with us, and i was ensured about that extra bed will be provided but from the hotels we come to know that they only provide extra mattress on the ground and not an extra bed and its the only thing they provide, so it was a complete misguidance and very disappointing. 2. We booked for allepy but only on the particular day we came to know that our booking has been shifted to Kumarakom houseboat, which was quite a far away, this should have been informed before. Apart from these the trip was excellent, hotels were good too only except the extra bed facility, the fact that Kerala itself is so mesmerizing it could easily make one ignore all the faults.Its truly - "Gods Own Country"
