      Accommodations were superb, but driver was 65 years old guy, it took us 6hours for 4.5 hours of journey with one break down and once we ran out of fuel.. Miss from travel agent --- Honeymoon bed decoration, cake , candle light dinner was promised but not delivered. House boat staff was real rude, lunch was awesome but dinner was not sufficient for 6of us....

      literally I'm dissatisfied with the Travel agent. he is so rude to Us and regarding the payment process he didn't even spoke properly to Us. I'm not happy with Travel agent at all. And the promises he made on the services were not up to the mark. the cab driver, Munnar Hotel, Cherai beach and Aleppy boat cook.

      Travel coordinator Kirti helped to sort out all the queries and made sure to plan everything as expected. Driver Nizam was really good and took care of the family through out the trip. It was an amazing and hassle free trip with Kerala Expedition ROSE GROUP INTERNATIONAL TOURS . Thanks to Kirti for making so good arrangements and Nizam for his goodness and cooperative nature.

      The driver didn't show us any place correctly.on the first day of arrival he made us get of at alua instead of ernakulam because it was easy for him.the next day he didnt show us the places correctly he didnt want to go to echo point because it may take time,he kept taking us to places that required us to send a lot of money like kathakali show,elephant safari,some amusement park, even though we said we wanted to see natural sites,he kept claiming these places were boring,even though everyone comes to kerala to see nature not for theme park.At the last day he didnt take us to the place we wanted.

      I had planned for a coorg trip.The hotels suggested before booking and after booking(beginning of my trip) were changed at the last moment and I was not given any proper information before hand. The hotel booked was about 70kms from the sight seeing places. Half of my trip experience was just travelling back and forth. The travel agents were not able to provide me an equally good alternative(hotel) as well. Also I had to wait more than 45 minutes to check in. I know that nothing is perfect but how a service deals when a problem/issue arises matters a lot. In that case I would definitely not suggest Travel mania

      Very harsh driving and atleast he stopped 4 times by other drivers on the road.. We had a day to cover Munnar and driver has no idea which places to take and he was least bothered to take us places. Which ever places we ask for stop over for sight seeing he seemed not bothered. If we ask we want to go to particular place he says there is nothing to see.. instead he wasted time.. he has no estimate of time for reaching places.. too much disappointed.. would never recommended this guy for any travellers.. Awesome weather in Munnar and location of madhumantra resort was awesome.. it was like I expected.. boat house was okay but different experience..

    FAQ's of Munnar

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    The Punarjani cultural village in Munnar is the place to catch a Kathakali show. They perform daily from 5 to 6 PM. They also perform the traditional Kalarippayattu martial art show from 6 to 7 PM.

    A Kathakali show costs INR 200/- at the Punarjani Cultural village in Munnar. Children below the age of 6 are given a complimentary entry.

    Although its actual origin is unclear, however, this dance form emerged from coastal regions in South India during the 17th century. The popular belief is that Kathakali has emerged from "Krishananattam", a dance drama on the life and activities of Lord Krishna. It is a combination of dramatic make-up, facial expressions, mudras and soothing music. 

    Kathakali is an ancient and traditional dance form of Kerala, using elaborate make-ups, costumes, masks and set-ups. Kathakali originated in the 17th century and has its roots in Hindu mythology.
