    Overall nice trip except two hotels were below average , specially blue moon hotel in munnar . Cab was nice , driver was good but they refuge to take me to athirapalli waterfall saying that it is not in itinerary ,i show them your quote but they were adamant, finally mr. Rakesh somehow convinced th
    em . But everything must be cleared before a trip. If you say three star hotel then stick to it otherwise it leaves bad impression for your company. Bamboo Dale munnar and house boat Alleppey were excellent.

    Anwaaruddin's 6 days trip to Trivandrum

    The trip was amazing. Munnar: It is an exceptionally great location and hotel was also very good. One can spend 2-3 days here itself. Kundala lake is a must go place. We had a great experience at hotel as view had a nice water fall and food was also good here. Elephant ride was nice. Dreamland adve
    nture park was good experience. Thekkady: It was good. Hotel was ok. Off road safari was ok. Cultural centre is a nice experience specially Kalaripayattu show. Kovalam: Weather was nice when we were here and hotel was great. It is a nice place to experience local food. Golden sand beach is scenic and a must go. You can skip the boat ride if you don't want to go but it was good. Alleppey: House boat is ok but the experience was nice. If you want any fish to have on the boat better buy it on the road because the fish is on the lake is very expensive. Boat ride makes it cool and breezy.
