    Fatema's 7 days trip to Kumarakom

    The personalized iternary was at very competitive price by agent. Overall trip was memorable. The private houseboat was perfect. The driver was very polite and gentleman. Cab was well maintained and clean. All our additional requests were accommodated with true spirit of hospitality. The hotel stays were perfect and trip turned to be memorable. Keep it up!

    Priyanka's 4 days trip to Kumarakom

    The experience at the hotel was good. However, the boat house was not up to the mark and no honeymoon arrangements were given. Which was mentioned to us as per the package but did not keep up the word. This was disappointing. And the cab driver was not so aware of the local places to suggest for good food and hotels and was also in a hurry to drop us off much before our time to depart. These few points could have been better managed. Nice views and we could cover a lot of places.
