    • Trip to Karnataka

      We had 6 days to cover Mysore, Coorg and Wayanad...in the monsoon season most of the places in wayanad were closed which was not informed by the agent. But thankfully our cab driver was really good and supportive throughout the trip. We ended up spending more time in the remaining places which were functional and in conclusion it was a good trip. I would like to thank our cab driver Baskar for showing us nearby places and good hotels I and my husband would definitely recommend Baskar for any South India trip. River Rafting in Dubare Elephant camp during monsoon was the best...

      No comments. Frstly I have to start with our cab driver Mr. Prasaad. He was so kind, aware of all the routes and polite. Then both the palm era resort nd green gates hotel was very beautiful nd the ambience also amazing. The quality of the food also very good. The overall coorg nd wayanad experience was very good. This is our second travelling experience via travel triangle. Thanks 2 inspire holidays nd thanks 2 travel triangle for making our trip more easier, beautiful and unforgettable.

      I travelled to Wayanad through Tour Club International around mid-April 2019. I am extremely happy with the services they provided. Most importantly I had a nice car and a very pleasant driver to accompany us for 2 days for the local sightseeing.

So that synchronize between agent customer and driver remain same to enjoy the trip.

      1.Driver was polite but he did n't know most of the places in Wayanad. 2. Vythri meadows- place is good- but the B/F & Dinner menu needs lot of improvement. 3.The management at Vythri hurried us to finish the B/F & Dinner by 9am & 9pm. All these issues to be looked into. Any how Big Thanks for everything. Bye.

      Thanks for arranging the wonderful trip to Coorg & Wayanad. The arrangement was simply awesome and also the property in Coorg (Deeva Mani) & Wayand (Pappys Nest) was very beautiful.
