      Hoja's 4 days trip to Kerala

      2 years ago
      We had a great time in Kerala for four days. We booked our trip from Raisoone Travels. We have enjoyed all the safari points in the Munnar and backwaters boating was superb. The guide cum driver was very much co-operative, active, punctual, jovial and very humble person. He took us to all the possible places as he can. We were just missed the hot air balloon drive in the Munnar due to heavy wind and also the Ervikulam National Park due to time constraint. The only disappointment is that house boat would have been a better one...and food was average in the houseboat. And on the last day of our trip the a/c was not working in the car due to some battery problem. Otherwise the trip is very superb and nice.. The best memories of our trip is the Bamboo Dale Resort which is a tree house. In the night we have enjoyed by seeing the moon and stars in the middle of the jungle from the room window which was a memorable night. I was very much excited. The other best moment is night stay on the boat and a coracle ride in the Munnar.

      Service is good.. good support from cab driver and house boat staff. Had good time in this trip. One suggestion would be that sort it out if any money related issues with your counter parts. Travellers should not be involved in it.

      Soudha's 4 days trip to Kerala

      3 years ago
      Place was good. However lack of proper communication by the driver was frustrating. We had to prompt him for everything to communicate regarding the travel plan. We missed out on Eraviculam national park due to that as he didnt mention untill muxh late that the park was closing. We expressed our desired to eat in authentic local places (small joints)but he kept taking us to multi cusine restaurants. Booking was made for 7 adults and 2 kids. However at all hotels booking was made only for 8 pax by the travrl agent. The tv in the boat house was not operational.

      Roopamadhu's 4 days trip to Kerala

      3 years ago
      Our trip with travel triangle was good except hot water facility and the food at the hotel (veetee mid town)was not at all gud (dinner) breakfast was ok. Cab service: firstly the pick up time from the station was delayed we waited almost 3 hours. Secondly they have sent a person as driver whom doesn't know the route, address and sightseeing places. We had tough time in searching for the places but some how managed by using Google map but wasted time in getting the route by stopping here and there. The driver was flexible and friendly so we could manage. House boat: was wonderful,staff members were good,food awesome and satisfied but again there was no proper water facility apart from all these we really enjoyed the trip especially in backwaters of Alleppey it was a memorable trip. Thank you

      Yogesh's 4 days trip to Kerala

      3 years ago
      Although the services provided by the agent was good but after sale services needs to be approved.. I had difficulties few times reaching the agent. But he called me back later. Also candle light dinner was not provided to us as mentioned in the package. (I also forgot about the same and so dint inform the agent abt the same) Also cab driver could have picked us up from Aluva station instead of Ernakulam. (We would have saved few hours of traveling). I did mentioned it to driver but he said Ernakulam would be better. Overall we were very much satisfied with the agent except few small things. Houseboat experience was very good with pure vegetarian food. Blue bells resort was very nice. Driver was very friendly

      Patri's 4 days trip to Kerala

      3 years ago
      My Stay was for 4day 3 Nights - Cochin-> Allepy-> Munnar-> Atthirapally falls-> Cochin Allepy boat was good one time experience, not something execellent. Munnar - wonderful place to visit, 1 and 1/2 days may not be enough to completely see the places in Munnar. Top station, Kundala lake boat ride(1/2 for wait 1/2 hour ride) are best. and Kannan Devan Tea factory is one good experience where i got to know how to prepare tea and have tea to get the right medicinal values of tea. Atthirapally Falls - best experience, it is really good for kids and family to play in water and view the wonderful falls . Cochin - ok nothing we visitied apart from traffic. Cab Agency - Eventhough the cab driver was prompt and cooperative.. Driver is not sure who pays him, he asks whether i paid completely to Maxis Holidays or not ..i had to show him the iternary and inclusions of fuel charges and all? and i already paid 3k extra for 1 day extension from 3d2n stay to 4d3n stay, even though, the cab agency seems to be cribbing on that they were paid less for this trip and tries to convince us not visiting few place.
