      Agent staff need to improve their behaviour after payment received from customer also. Commitments before doing payment and performance after payment was different.Owner of the agent promised that i can pay my payment through travel triangle app or at alappuzha office. But agent staff compelled to give payment to driver and hotel as cash. So i it affected my financial plan. I couldnt operate creditcard emi option because of this agents bad behaviour.Travel triangle site also very poor support. No updation after payment.Driver and house boat service was good. House boat food was good

      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.... When asked they rudely replied they got only that instructions from owner and they ll provide only that... The temporary accommodation in falling waters was out of world, lunch at boat house was scrumptious....

      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.

    • Trip to Kerala

      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

    • Trip to Kerala

      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 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.
