    As a feedback....I would like to express that tour was nicely organised. All amenities were as per commitments.However I have got two suggestions 1. Tour vehicle driver shall be well informed about inclusions of diesel prices etc as driver was asking me to pay diesel money. 2. Driver and vehicle details shall be shared well in advance ...details was shared a bit late this time. Thanks for very good service extended.

    Overall the trip was good. The Driver and cab service was excellent. But Cochi hotel room was very small. Houseboat was also not as per standards. Agent has booked Whiterose houseboat. But the boat provided to us was nowhere similar ot one givenon their website. Other than that experience was great.
