    • Trip to Kerala

      I traveled to Kerela along with my wife and my 1-year daughter. The destination is awesome but the trip manager and agent was not helpful. I had few issues while traveling which was not resolved by travel agent Trip Trello and my trip manager Sneha instead of contacting them well in advance. 1. I booked my houseboat for Allepey but without my consent, my houseboat was shifted to Kumarakom. I contacted the team regarding this issue but instead of correcting it they were trying to convince me. 2. The houseboat was very bad and the staff was really unprofessional especially cook. You can find Cockroaches, mosquitoes, and lizards on the houseboat. 3. It was mentioned in the iteniery that I will be served with Handmade Chocolates, Flower Bed, Candle Light Dinner and Honeymoon Cake on Houseboat but nothing was served and fulfilled. They also served stale sambhar in breakfast. 4. Cab driver was very particular about not serving after 7 PM. So, you may miss a number of things like you start enjoying beach life after 7 which you can't do. You can't shop in the evening. You can go out after 7 to any other place. 5. Sunset at Kanyakumari (which is really one of the very beautiful spots to watch the sunset) was included in the plan but the cab driver was so keen to return by 7. He was worried and discussed this thing with us up to 10 times and at last, we didn't saw the sunset cz of him. 6. Cab driver was very keen to go to the places first where he has some commission fixed with the shops and spots. For example, Waterpark in Munnar, Spice Garden, Elephant ride and other activities in thekkady, backwaters ride in Povar. Thankfully I was read his intentions and didn't allow to ruin my trip by with unnecessary expenses. But the driver was knowledgeable about roads, spots and very nice to respond. 7. Overall Kerala is a very beautiful location and we had a great time there except Houseboat. I would recommend to book a backwater resort with a 2-3 hours houseboat ride instead of staying there. 8. The spots to remember during my Kerala trip are: a. Munnar - Ragamaya Resort (5 star and beautiful location, must stay), Echo point, Tea Garden, Sunset Point and shopping in New Munnar Town; b. Thekkedy - boat ride at Periyar Tiger Reserve. Apart from this I found this place boring, so you can skip this place unless you want to do tracking and safari), Handmade Pizza at Coffee Garden - Rooftop Restaurant (best in Thekkady) which was walking distance from my hotel Peppervine; c. Kumarakom - The only best time on the houseboat was Sunset and Morning Ride. d. Povar/Kovalam/Kanyakumari - Lighthouse Beach, Estuary Island Resort located in Povar but it is 45 mins away from popular beaches Lighthouse Beach, Hawa Beach etc located in Kovalam. Due to 7 PM condition of cab driver, we didn't get enough time to spend. So, it is recommended that instead take a resort in Kovalam, Vivekanand Memorial at Kanyakumari. Overall, Kerala is a must visit place and it truly justifies its name "God's own country" but choose your package wisely.

      Overall experience is good, Lake and hill resort location and atmosphere was very excellent but food was expensive and food quality also was not up to the mark. Houseboat could have been better. Food was good at Houseboat but room quality was very dirty. Cab service was excellent, Driver Ajay was very humble guy.
