    Authentic Traveler Reviews for Kodaikanal

    • Trip to Tamil Nadu

      We have expected a communication from agent after planning of the trip, once payment is done there is no update on any information. we have kept calling and asking if all arrangements were done or not, until we asked we haven't received the driver details who will be picking us from Coimbatore airport, Itinerary details were not sent to driver who was clueless of which places were planned. As the driver was very friendly, he took us to all the places planned. Hotel in Ooty was disaster with all types of services, no room cleaning, no complimentary water bottles. Kodaikanal hotel was good and beyond expectations in food and all services. Seems like Travel Triangle is just expecting new Travelers and Customers and ignoring the most trusted travelers. very disappointed this time may be the last time trusting Travel triangle.

      Myself and my wife had an excellent trip to Ooty and Kodaikanal. The service of inspire holidays is awesome. Never feel any difficulty from the starting of the trip to end of the trip. I have to mention about the driver, his name is Tamil. He is really good and have lot of patience. Never hesitated to answer whatever we’ve asked. He is really good. Travel triangle also very good in coordinating all the activities in the process. Please go with inspire holidays, I give ratings 5/5 Jyothi Mishra from travel triangle, she is awesome. I refer her as she has good knowledge on all the things she does.

    • Trip to Tamil Nadu

      I had a trip to KodaiKanal, Ooty & Coimbatore. Bhargavi from VFM holidays was very helpful. The trip was good but with few hiccups. I did not have idea about which vehicle suits for our needs. Ultimately ended up adjusting ourselves during the trip with the vehicle provided. KodaiKanal accommodation is very good and we enjoyed location and sightseeing etc. Food prepared by them is very good. In Ooty the accommodation is not up to the mark and there are power cuts in two nights during our stay. We did not expect these kind of issues in a tourist place. We thought that toy train tickets will be booked by travel triangle but ended up in missing it as no tickets available for us to get from railway counter also. Next time, I would need to verify all these before planning for a vacation.

    • Trip to Tamil Nadu

      One of the biggest disappointments was Kodaikanal Hotel. In PDF shared with us it mentioned Spring Valley Residency but we were given Hotel Spring Valley which is not at all good. Two days we stayed in Kodaikanal we have to face wait outside of hotel to get another hotel confirmation from Customize trip.

      Kodaikanal was awesome. Ooty was okay. Hotels in ooty was okay. It's better to go by flight to Coimbatore. So that one day journey will be less.

      I am really impressed by the way trip was organized. Right from landing in Kodaikanal railway station to our return to Bangalore every bit was perfectly aligned with respect to cabs and itinerary. The drivers were polite and were open to do pit stops wherever we need. They were also knowledgable explaining the beauty of Kodaikanal. Overall I felt really relaxed during the trip with zero worries on how to visit places or where to have lunch/dinner. Thumbs up to Travel Triangle and Corporate Hosts Destination.

      We had a good time during our Coorg, Ooty, Kodaikanal tour. Tootle tour made a good arrangement. The hotels stay and food was good. the porcupine castle hotel in Coorg has good scenic beauty. Teanest nightingale in Ooty is a small property but the food was good. It was my wife's birthday when we were in Ooty. Caretaker helped to arrange the cake and we could celebrate the birthday. We really enjoyed it.
