    Alphagirl's 4 days trip to Wayanad

    Everything went well except for rain at times but even with rain my family as a whole enjoyed so much. Especially the cab driver I guess his name is sethu nath who guided through the entire tour as a local he knew everything the history of the place to where to get best and cheap items too which mad
    e my family happy. While it rained he took us to Indoor activities which was kerala's special kathakali and mohini attam. Since he have done this a lot he took to boating and elephant safari on time when there was less crowd and less traffic which was a plus. So everything worked out well in this heavy rain because we had good driver. Next is Amuse vista the stay was amazing especially the bed it was so soft I didn't know a night has passed, after a tired day they had some amazing bed to sleep on and good food which was like home cooked. We are happy that Namaskaram travels had arranged such good wonderful things in lowest price available. Even my family didn't believe me the price they quoted for such amazing adventure

    Mandarsbarve's 5 days trip to Wayanad

    Hi travel trangle. This is my first experience with travel trangle. Very good agency and best support. The hotel booking is smooth and no problem when visited to hotels. Excellent coordination of tye travel trangle. One important suggestion is while travelling from Cochin to munnar , munnar to tekke
    di and tekeddi to back water it takes 4 to 5 hours at each destination. There us also limitation of speed lock. So when I m returning back from back water to Cochin airport where I m expecting to cover places in kochi, we are failed to even cover single place due to time constraints which driver has told that if we leave at 7 am we would b able to cover the places. So my genuine request is ask driver to told one day advance to leave hotel at 7am or 8 am sothat no traveller should missed out places. As no such specific information given we left hotel with leisure and resulted into missing visiting places. So drivers should b trained and told to share in advance approx time reqd to travel and plan early moving from hotel at 7 am.
