Enquiry's 5 days trip to WayanadIt was amazing trip. Khushboo and Shobhit planned a good trip. Munnar hotel (Mystic Munnar) was toooo good. Driver was not well known with the time and distance to be travelled during trip. When it comes to alleppey Houseboat it was not so satisfactory. AC on houseboat starts working only after 9 PM and no hot water in bathroom.
Manu's 3 days trip to Wayanadeverything is good but hotel rever tree persons asking extra money for stain happened to cloths they are charged 320 for dobi charges i have never seen like this remaining is good thank i book it forgot it
Shahid's 5 days trip to WayanadIts not my first time that i have booked my vacation from travel triangle, My 1st preference was travel triangle because of my past experience. I have been to Rajasthan before and my entire vacation, travel, experience was absolutely incredible. So, although i was getting much better packages from other travel partners but i had my share of faith with travel triangle so i gone ahead with it. I wouldn't say it was bad, i had some real good time at kerala everything was nice and well planned. Most of the all the hotels and staff was very nice and caring and they taken care of us very well specially people at spice lap hotel and kera house boat. Now let's come to BAD, service people who have handled my booking at timeless travel are not very efficient and professional when it comes to serve thier customers. At the booking i was offered a specific hotel which i liked but later it was changed to some other hotel and they put a blame on me saying i have delayed the payment hence could not book the specified hotel. I was very disheartened and not satisfied at all but somehow managed. I hope this gets highlighted to right people and some improvements is been made. Your sincerely Shahid Shaikh Stay at spice lap and kera houseboat

Siddhant's 4 days trip to WayanadFirstly co-ordination was not great , Hotel was not booked correctly , have to wait for an hour to get it confirmed under right names in Munnar .Hotel and food was good. Also On second location , Travel agent dint pick up calls on time and dint tell the driver the exact location to reach to Allepey and further blamed us for reaching there late. BoatHouse was not confirmed , so they sent us to Kumarkaon which is half an hour further from Allepey . Boat house was not clean with smell of pesticides , although food served overall was good. Good Trip messed up by the travel agent.
