Trip to KeralaWe had an awesome trip in kochi Munnar and in Aleppey houseboat cab driver was very nice person. Had an best trip in Kerala
Trip to KeralaVERY NICE TRIP AND GOOD SUPPORT FOR TRAVEL TRIANGLE TEAM & ASSURE TRIP MR. TARUN KUMAR..... enjoyed the trip
Trip to KeralaI traveled to Kerela along with my wife and my 1-year daughter. The destination is awesome but the trip manager and agent was not helpful. I had few issues while traveling which was not resolved by travel agent Trip Trello and my trip manager Sneha instead of contacting them well in advance. 1. I booked my houseboat for Allepey but without my consent, my houseboat was shifted to Kumarakom. I contacted the team regarding this issue but instead of correcting it they were trying to convince me. 2. The houseboat was very bad and the staff was really unprofessional especially cook. You can find Cockroaches, mosquitoes, and lizards on the houseboat. 3. It was mentioned in the iteniery that I will be served with Handmade Chocolates, Flower Bed, Candle Light Dinner and Honeymoon Cake on Houseboat but nothing was served and fulfilled. They also served stale sambhar in breakfast. 4. Cab driver was very particular about not serving after 7 PM. So, you may miss a number of things like you start enjoying beach life after 7 which you can't do. You can't shop in the evening. You can go out after 7 to any other place. 5. Sunset at Kanyakumari (which is really one of the very beautiful spots to watch the sunset) was included in the plan but the cab driver was so keen to return by 7. He was worried and discussed this thing with us up to 10 times and at last, we didn't saw the sunset cz of him. 6. Cab driver was very keen to go to the places first where he has some commission fixed with the shops and spots. For example, Waterpark in Munnar, Spice Garden, Elephant ride and other activities in thekkady, backwaters ride in Povar. Thankfully I was read his intentions and didn't allow to ruin my trip by with unnecessary expenses. But the driver was knowledgeable about roads, spots and very nice to respond. 7. Overall Kerala is a very beautiful location and we had a great time there except Houseboat. I would recommend to book a backwater resort with a 2-3 hours houseboat ride instead of staying there. 8. The spots to remember during my Kerala trip are: a. Munnar - Ragamaya Resort (5 star and beautiful location, must stay), Echo point, Tea Garden, Sunset Point and shopping in New Munnar Town; b. Thekkedy - boat ride at Periyar Tiger Reserve. Apart from this I found this place boring, so you can skip this place unless you want to do tracking and safari), Handmade Pizza at Coffee Garden - Rooftop Restaurant (best in Thekkady) which was walking distance from my hotel Peppervine; c. Kumarakom - The only best time on the houseboat was Sunset and Morning Ride. d. Povar/Kovalam/Kanyakumari - Lighthouse Beach, Estuary Island Resort located in Povar but it is 45 mins away from popular beaches Lighthouse Beach, Hawa Beach etc located in Kovalam. Due to 7 PM condition of cab driver, we didn't get enough time to spend. So, it is recommended that instead take a resort in Kovalam, Vivekanand Memorial at Kanyakumari. Overall, Kerala is a must visit place and it truly justifies its name "God's own country" but choose your package wisely.
Trip to KeralaOverall experience is good, Lake and hill resort location and atmosphere was very excellent but food was expensive and food quality also was not up to the mark. Houseboat could have been better. Food was good at Houseboat but room quality was very dirty. Cab service was excellent, Driver Ajay was very humble guy.
Trip to KeralaWe had a wonderful family trip in Kerala for 6days 5 nights....Mr. Abhishek from Maxis Holidays did an excellent job of scheduling our trip and gave us picture perfect spots to accomodation and all stay was comfortable and cozy... great food, great fun, great trip... awesome Kerala... Paloma backwater lake resort stoled all of our hearts...
Trip to KeralaVery Nicely planned by Travel Unbounded. Mamta was very helpful in planning and coordination for the trip even on a short notice of two days. All the services from Cab to Hotel was very good. We had a pleasant experience for our Kerela trip.
Trip to KeralaMany spots didn't convered by travel agent. Delay in responding. Less coordination between driver and agents. Houseboat
Trip to KeralaYou guys rocked with this trip planning. Thank you so much for making my trip memorable.

FAQ's of Munnar
Read on to find out why our customers love us!
Munnar being a hill station, there is no bad time to visit really. Every season has it's own charm in the city. Though most people go in winter for trekking or in the summer to escape the heat, monsoon in Munnar is incredible as well. Heavy rains and lush greenery everywhere make it a beautiful experience. Monsoon is also the time when Munnar is the least crowded
As a lot of the attractions in Munnar are a little far from the main town, there is no specific ideal area to stay in Munnar. It is better to check according to the hotel that you are planning to stay in and get an idea of it's quality.
There are rooms available from Rs.800 a night to Rs. 15,000 a night. Restaurants are plenty, mostly connected to hotels and serve various cuisines for roughly Rs. 200-300 per person for a meal. There are also cars available on rent for transport and cost anything between Rs. 600-2500 for half a day or the full day. At the very least, a day in Munnar would cost you Rs.1000-1500.
Home to extensive plantations of both tea and coffee, both the beverages and their local preparations are specialities of Munnar. Being a hill station, the weather is also something that makes Munnar quite special. Even in the summer months, Munnar's average high temperature is 26-28 degrees celsius. The Anamudi Peak which is near Munnar is also worth mentioning as it is the tallest peak in South India. The Eravikulam National Park is also home to the Nilgiri Tahir.
