    Niladri's 7 days trip to Tamil Nadu

    I got in touch with traveltriangle and gosthala when I was planning a 7 day trip of Tamil Nadu starting from Mahabalipuram to Madurai covering 4 coastal cities. When I started having detail discussion with them they made me realize that how far the distances would be and how we can break the journey and cover more cities. They comfortably planned the itenary and setup a 7 city tour in 8 days which was remarkable. The driver who was allocated to us was good, but I wish that he could speak either Hindi or English fluently as it became difficult for us to make him understand what we wanted. But then the behavior of the driver was really good and he knew the locations good. All our stays was well planned except for the stay at Gopinivas grand in kanyakumari. The hotel seems good from outside but was a mess inside. Gosthala team assured us that they won't suggest that hotel to any other traveller. Apart from that it was a remarkable and a memorable trip and I would like to thank gosthala team to keep up the great work.
