Loved the Contrast

Hi Gary 

Thank you so much for fixing Siji for us – as usual he was an absolute star in terms of his driving, good humour and overall capacity to act as a fixer. We loved the variety and the contrast to our two previous visits. The accommodation was generally excellent.  Kaav was wonderful.  Old Harbour Hotel at Cochin and Xandari Pearl at Marari Beach both score top marks from us in all respects.  Ambience, location, food and service are all exemplary.  Thanks for all your help with this trip.

It was a wonderful holiday. The service provided through the booking procedure and the arrangements made to ensure that everything ran so smoothly while we were there were outstanding. We would certainly use the company again and recommend it to friends. Thank you very much for arranging everything so brilliantly.

Pleased to have used Kerala Connections

I thought the whole trip was very well organised.  The driver you - Sanil was great - a good driver, prompt, organised, very professional and courteous.  The accommodation provided was also of a very high standard.  Overall we had a lovely holiday, we were very pleased to have used Kerala Connections to book this experience.  The booklet provided with our itinerary, tips and information was very helpful - a great idea.

Probably one of our best holidays

This was our first trip to India and we are already thinking about the next. It was probably one of our best holidays. We stayed in various types of accommodation and all had lovely staff and wonderful food, particularly on the Lakes and Lagoons houseboat and the Old Harbour Hotel. Dewalokam was our first experience of a homestay and somewhere we hope to visit again. Jose and Sinta do an amazing job keeping their guests and staff happy in beautiful surroundings.

Splendid Time

The most exciting part of our holiday was the houseboat, but all the hotels and rooms we had were fantastic.  We enjoyed every part of our holiday – Kerala Connections built us a great tour which worked really well. Our driver (Siji) was helpful and friendly.  We had a splendid time and would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone.

Many Happy Memories

We have many happy memories.  The most memorable part was the 2 night stay on the Houseboat and the fantastic scenery/river activity, plus our stay at Dewalokam Retreat, Kodikulam. Their attention to detail and guests was second to none!  We recommend seeing the Kathakali and Martial Arts Displays.  It was the most wonderful experience and introduction to Southern India. Every part of the holiday was efficiently organised from the booking with Kerala Connections to the attention given once in Kerala.  Companion Holidays were most efficient and professional.  Our wonderful driver (Sanil) was prompt, polite and informative.

A Revelation

We had a superb holiday – thank you.  The diver, Sunil, inspired the utmost confidence.  He was always punctual, estimated times of arrival accurately and gave very good advice.  Our visits to the pottery, silk weaving, tile making and bronze casting were all very interesting.  The guides were very good.  All in all a revelation for us – all three first time visitors to India.

Josephine Ades

During their time in Mumbai they asked us if we could arrange for them to visit Victoria Station to see the portrait of Josephine’s father who was General Manager there.  This visit generated press interest and they featured in an article in the Mumbai Mirror.
