    Nchoudhury's 5 days trip to Thekkady

    The driver provided was very good and a very nice person. He would tell short history and facts about any sightseeing places we visited, and was a nice person to talk to. The hotels were not bad either. Food and stay were good and clean in all the hotels we stayed. We visited some nice places and h
    ad some good experience. Expected a bit more communication from the agent, but the services provided were good. Overall, we had a nice trip. The traditional Kerala massage and the houseboat stay would be our memorable experiences.

    Saurabh's 6 days trip to Thekkady

    It was a nice trip. Leaf hotel in Munnar was very good. Aadishakti resort in Kovalam experience was very average. We had booked Innova taxi with carrier but were given Ertiga without carrier which made travelling uncomfortable. Driver was excellent. Magic planet in Trivandrum was highlight of the
    trip.

    Driver and car was pathetic. Worst driver ever in my life. He doesn't know the travel plan, itenary. He cant drive in traffic and conjested roads. Due to driver entire trip was affected. No more booking from travel traingle. Houseboat booked was AC premium but allotted normal houseboat with poor c
    ook and housekeeping. In name of honeymoon inclusion they provided one old candel and unhygienic food and worst cake that too in bad condition.
