      We loved our whole trip. It was planned and executed as we expected. We loved the hospitality given by cab driver, hotel staff and houseboat people. The Houseboat provided by Guruji Travels was a memorable thing in the entire tour. Specially by Guruji Travels as in whole journey Vaishali and Megha were also monitoring if everything is going fine or not. Our whole experience was amazing. I will recommend you to others as well.

    • Trip to Vagamon

      Travel 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

      It'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.
