    Goutham Baskaran

    Chennai

    Goutham's 4 days trip to Kumarakom

    Great trip despite poor agent. KY holidays booked our rooms in our suggested hotels and practically did no more.. our sightseeing was basically planned by us and we received no guidance from our agent. plus the only sightseeing arranged by the agent was a shikara cruise and it was not even a shikara! when we confronted her on this she went on to blame us and tried lie her way out by saying it was actually a shikara while it was no more than a fishing boat with seats! her attitude after settlement of cash became unprofessional and indifferent. we would have missed breakfast our 4star resort if not for our own due dilegence as she was not even aware of the bfast hours of the hotel to plan our itenary during that time. if you want a percectly preplanned trip with no hassles. DO NOT BOOK WITH KY HOLIDAYS. all of it except shikara

    Dessai's 5 days trip to Kumarakom

    Overall trip was good, but there was limited on trip coordination between MM Travels and hotels. First day our hotel was changed before check in. We had booked house boat in Alleppey we were shifted to kumarakom and MM travels was unaware of this changes. Cab driver ( Binil ) was very polite, friendly, helpful and punctual. he drove safely and covered sightseeing spots mentioned in itinerary. houseboat food was best, better than hotels in which we had stayed.

    Fareena's 5 days trip to Kumarakom

    It was a memorable trip. Thumbs up for planning and coordinating the trip very well. The driver Mr. Salman was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the trip. Highly recommend him for further trips. Only concern is the honeymoon inclusions were not provided on houseboat, although I had brought it to the agent's notice (from Sai Arha) . Nevertheless it was an awesome experience. Thank you Salman bhai, Sai Arha Holidays Private Limited and Travel Triangle.

    Nikhil's 7 days trip to Kumarakom

    Hello Team, It was pretty amazing experience while travelling to Kerala with Kerala expedition. Everything was hassle free and we didn't face any issue during our travel. All the hotels were upto the mark except Hotel Jasmine palace as we thought that we could have got a better hotel near the beach.

    My trip was really exciting and I enjoyed every bit of my time spent in Kerala. I would be very thankful for arranging this memorable trip for me. I am very thankful to Anita who had arranged this trip for me. I would like to mention that our driver throughout the trip Mr Shameer Hassan was fabulous and behaved just like a family man. He was very friendly with us and guided us throughout the trip. He also covered the entire site seeing during our trip. My trip was really exciting and I enjoyed every bit of my time spent in Kerala.

    Anant's 6 days trip to Kumarakom

    The trip of Kerala was very well coordinated and managed by Anitha Shekawat of MM travels starting from the quotation of the trip plan (various plans) untill it's execution. Rooms were pretty good and the cab facility throughout the trip was good except the driver of the cab was on call most of the time while driving which is little risky, but overall the trip was very much smooth and I had good time with my family.Thanks Anitha for the package plan and the coordination Places selected and the hotel's were very good
