      It was lovely experience within the budget, the employees and staff have always being cooperative. Especially the driver, Mr. Laichu was the sweetest person. We didn't expect anything more. It was just up to mark. The house boat experience is worth travelling for. Special thanks to Mr. Himanshu Gupta for arranging the tip and looking after every small thing required in trip. I would give 5 stars to the organisation. It was lovely experience within the budget, the employees and staff have always being cooperative. Especially the driver, Mr. Laichu was the sweetest person.

This is an amazing feeling and stay at munar hotel view also awesome. On third day we were reached thekkedy from munar. Kalaripaitu was fantastic and goosebumps comes while watching reality show. On 4th day we were gone to allippy from thekkedy.. we were booked house boat for honeymoon inclusions. It's amazing in boating and parked in water for full night... In overall it a loveble, amazing, thrilled, feeling after completion of the trip with the help of trip adviser Ms. Keerthi and Gokul cab driver. Regards, Rajaram P

      It was good service from travel agent entire tour package was worth for me. Raisoone Travels & Holidays services was good, would like to recommend to others. Munnar was awesome, Thekkady is not much recommended as only wildlife is there. Houseboat was super amazing experience with best services and yummy food on board. Our driver was polite and helped us as a guide. Munnar and Houseboat experience was best.

    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.

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

     

    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.
