    Goutham's 4 days trip to Vagamon

    Great trip despite poor agent. KY holidays booked our rooms in our suggested hotels and practically did no more.. our sightseeing was basically planned by us and we received no guidance from our agent. plus the only sightseeing arranged by the agent was a shikara cruise and it was not even a shikara! when we confronted her on this she went on to blame us and tried lie her way out by saying it was actually a shikara while it was no more than a fishing boat with seats! her attitude after settlement of cash became unprofessional and indifferent. we would have missed breakfast our 4star resort if not for our own due dilegence as she was not even aware of the bfast hours of the hotel to plan our itenary during that time. if you want a percectly preplanned trip with no hassles. DO NOT BOOK WITH KY HOLIDAYS. all of it except shikara

    Dessai's 5 days trip to Vagamon

    Overall trip was good, but there was limited on trip coordination between MM Travels and hotels. First day our hotel was changed before check in. We had booked house boat in Alleppey we were shifted to kumarakom and MM travels was unaware of this changes. Cab driver ( Binil ) was very polite, friendly, helpful and punctual. he drove safely and covered sightseeing spots mentioned in itinerary. houseboat food was best, better than hotels in which we had stayed.

    It was a memorable trip. Thumbs up for planning and coordinating the trip very well. The driver Mr. Salman was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the trip. Highly recommend him for further trips. Only concern is the honeymoon inclusions were not provided on houseboat, although I had brought it to the agent's notice (from Sai Arha) . Nevertheless it was an awesome experience. Thank you Salman bhai, Sai Arha Holidays Private Limited and Travel Triangle.

    You do not need a license to paraglide but a person who handles the paramotor and is an instructor needs a verified license to guide anyone in this activity.

    There is no age limit for paragliding. If you are below 18 years of age, you will need your parent’s permission and supervision in writing. However, there is no age limit for paragliding.

    It is completely alright to paraglide at night, however, you will have to limit your distance to a visibility of 5 kilometers. It is advisable to go for the activity early in the morning as there are no restrictions regarding the speed and distance.
