    • Trip to Kerala

      I recently visited kerala with my wife and friends and I can't define in words how amazingly awesome it was. My travel agent Mr. Jugraj from Tripkro provided me the perfect Hotels, rooms, itinerary and Cab. More than that the moment I visited Kochi airport we met our driver "Mr. Sukesh" who was like a blessing for us through out our trip, from the beginning of the trip he kept guiding us for every passing sight and explained it's significance. I believe he's one of the most experienced person in Kerala. I would really like to thank Mr. Jugraj who actually was always in touch for everything that we required. When we had issues with the hotel for their service, Jugraj sorted it out at first hand in minutes. And I think such customer service is something which really needs to be appreciated. Moreover, houseboat experience was planned beautifully for 4 of us. Now after this trip I can simply trust Tripkro.com and Jugraj to plan my other travel goals. Really looking forward to many more upcoming amazingly planned trips with Tripkro, especially Jugraj. The best part of the trip was Houseboat stay at Alleppey. It was beautifully planned by the agent.

    • Trip to Kerala

      Everything was fine except the driver/guide. He was polite with us but he was just trying to complete our each day of trip. He doesn't show any enthusiasm to take us for sightseeing. Sometimes he refused as well. Rest was fine.

      What an amazing trip organised by Tour Associatecom(Danny Kapur). All the arrangements were made by them and the House Boat experience was memorable, but the water in the boat is seems to be dirty. The Cab Driver/ guide Mr Suraj is an awesome person, he has done fabulous job. Thank you Tour Associatecom.

    FAQ's of Thekkady

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    In Thekkady the cost of a one and a half hour ride from the Elephant Junction is roughly Rs. 1300. 

    There is boating, border hiking, Bamboo rafting and Jungle safari to Gavi. The safari includes trekking, pedal boating, visit to cardamon plantations as well as the museum.

    Thekkady is a place that you would visit to be close to nature and as such, it is a peaceful and luxurious experience. A visit with family is ideal and it is an excellent place to spend some down-time with the family and relax. Of course, if you have friends that share a common interest with you, for example, wildlife/nature photography, then it is a great place to visit with them as well.

    In terms of clothes, muted colours like green, brown, grey are recommended as the national park is a main attraction. The clothes should ideally also be comfortable and easy to walk around in. Since the other attractions around Thekkady are nature oriented as well, it makes packing the essentials of mosquito repellent, flashlight and good shoes necessary as well.

     

    The ideal amount of time spent in Thekkady would depend on the traveller's reason for going there. While there are quite a few places around that are not to be missed to see the true beauty of the place, one can ideally see most of them in 3 or 4 days. However, as the biggest attraction is Periyar National Park, anyone visiting Thekkady to spend a few days observing the animals could do with staying a week and seeing some of the other nearby attractions as well.
