    • Trip to Tamil Nadu

      Rooms were not clean. Coorg hotel was no where near the market. Cockroaches in the room. We have to wait for more than 3 hours to check in Mysore hotel. Mysore hotel's manager was too arrogant. Service was very slow. We have been told there will no Oyo rooms from the package. But have got Oyo rooms in coorg and mysore. Need to travel for more 4-5 kms to reach to coorg hotel's breakfast restaurant. There was only 1 option given for breakfast in Coorg. I have been told I will get so many options in the breakfast. Nothing I got. Mysore hotel didn't give us breakfast. I ate it outside and Lee vacations paid me for that. Ooty hotel was good but the service was damn slow. We literally have to wait for half an hour to get water bottle. Breakfast was very limited. Only idli and bread. Cab driver was good. He knows each and every thing about the place.

      The overall arrangement by Lee Vacations was exceptional excepting the Hotel at Ooty. Initially Bhagravi effort to convince me to book a trip with Lee was unforgeatable. She left no stone unturned to ensure the booking. Than the driver Jitenderji tried his best to ensure the trip ends smoothly & becomes a memorable one for us. Ramya & Murrugun also tried their best ensure we get the best hospitality as pissible. I thank the whe Lee team for their sincere and honest effort to keep us happy, God bless them. The Rameswaram trip particularly to Dhanuskodi & Kalam Memorial was amazing

    • Trip to Kerala

      Hotel stay in Thekkady was good but had issues with check-in timings. Had to pay additional 1000 rupees for early check-in. With respect to cab, cab driver was excellent and could talk in English, Tamil and local language. But they had a specific itinerary to cover which was not communicated to me. For spots I asked they were asking to pay extra Overall trip was ok

      Trip was good overall and as planned. Vehicle and Driver are very good and is a plesant journey throughout. The hotel rooms at Madurai and Srirangam are very nice but the rooms at Rameshwaram and Kanyakumari are not upto the mark.
