Deepak's 6 days trip to WayanadWe had a great time in Kerela, Shibu bhai (the cab driver) was a great person to be around; he helped us alot in the adverse and problematic conditions.

The moment I put my request on TT, I got a itinerary from Triptello, we made multiple changes since I was taking my parents along and wanted a comfortable trip .

Hotels - Extremely well chosen hotels, Best view, Service and location Driver - Extremely courteous and professional We had a lifetime Kerala trip, my parents are extremely happy and delighted. Thank you folks, Appreciate
Devdatt's 6 days trip to WayanadOverall experience was amazing, had a wonderful experience on each day of trip. The journey, sights, places, the people we met all were memorable. Cab driver+tour guide+photographer was very good and made our journey interesting. All the hotels were good, except the one day houseboat stay. Houseboat stay was the worse night spend in entire trip, just because of the condition of boat. Staff and food was good but the boat was looking like 100 years old, not maintained properly, AC and Fan weren't working, and the mosquitos made the night little longer. Munnar sight seeing, adventure games at Wonder Vally, Jeep Safari, Katthakali dance show, Oxygen resort stay, tea gardens, Alleppy and Cherai beaches
