Trip to VagamonTravel agent didn't provided proper details of trip and at the last moment he changes sequence of visiting the places, and because of that we had to waste 2 days of our holiday in Munnar. And when we discussed these with travel agent, there was zero support from them, ruining our last 2 days of vacation. Vagamon
Trip to VagamonDriver was good but could have been more informative . We were told to get upper deck in boathouse but it was single deck only . Munnar stay and food in boathouse was awesome
Trip to VagamonIt's a good experience with Unirise travels.. Driver Anoop was very much interested to show us all the attractions of Kerela and we are very thankful to him.. Only disappointment of our whole journey is about ECO boat in Alleppey.. Our trip would be more memorable if we have choosen some other boathouse.
