    Hoja's 4 days trip to Kerala

    We had a great time in Kerala for four days. We booked our trip from Raisoone Travels. We have enjoyed all the safari points in the Munnar and backwaters boating was superb. The guide cum driver was very much co-operative, active, punctual, jovial and very humble person. He took us to all the possible places as he can. We were just missed the hot air balloon drive in the Munnar due to heavy wind and also the Ervikulam National Park due to time constraint. The only disappointment is that house boat would have been a better one...and food was average in the houseboat. And on the last day of our trip the a/c was not working in the car due to some battery problem. Otherwise the trip is very superb and nice.. The best memories of our trip is the Bamboo Dale Resort which is a tree house. In the night we have enjoyed by seeing the moon and stars in the middle of the jungle from the room window which was a memorable night. I was very much excited. The other best moment is night stay on the boat and a coracle ride in the Munnar.

    Karuna's 7 days trip to Kerala

    Well it was fine but there were few things about the driver which I didn't like. I wanted to visit Sree Poornathrayeesa Temple before beginning my trip and since I landed in the morning so it was the perfect time to visit the tample but the driver said he will take us to the tample on last day and on tha last day after checking out from houseboat we reached kochi in the noon and the tample was closed that time which the driver already knew so we couldn't go there. Secondly he was taking us to the commission based shops which wasn't a pleasant feeling. We weren't interested in jeep safari but the driver was convincing us to do it as if he was getting something from it.

    Everything is fine. Travel agent didn't do so much effort. It was Honeymoon package but didn't have any special arrangements. Even he told me he will give a candle light dinner but once I made payment after that he didn't pick my call. He is asking money before our agree date.

    It was an awesome experience we had with this tour. You people arranged the hotels as per our convenience. Hotel's staff and management is good. Munnar, Thekkady and Alleppey was the best places to visit in Kerela. We loved boat house very much and the people were very friendly. Our travel agent Ranjan - Raisoone Travels planned the tour in a proper way. We thank him for the proper guidance. Driver was also very good and made our travel very comfortable. At last we would like to say that we had a great experience with Kerela. I will surely contact Ranjan - Raisoone Travels for my next tour !!!

    Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary operating timings are 07:00 am to 10:00 am and 02:00 pm to 05:00 pm.

    During the off-season, hill stations like Munnar are cool enough to travel to. However, places such as Alleppey and Kumarakom are pretty hot for a visit. Monsoon season does not see a lot of tourists but the lush greenery all around will ensure tourists will have a great time.

    Sharing a houseboat or having one exclusively to yourself depends on the package you have taken. Share your requirements with the travel agent in advance to avoid last minute hassles.

    The entry fee for Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary is INR 110 for adults and INR 40 for children.

    A variety of exotic species of wildlife can be found at Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary like elephants, civet cats, jungle cats, tiger, panthers, wild dogs, monkeys, and many other such animals.

    August to March is the best time to visit Kerala for backwaters.
