We thoroughly enjoyed it all – it was a very, very good holiday. The houseboat was superb and the food very good. Xandari Pearl was thoroughly lovely. Tranquil has a very pleasant atmosphere. The village tour to a tribal community at Kabini was really interesting. Everything we did I would recommend.
We had an absolutely lovely holiday. There was very little damage visible following the cyclone. Our driver was an absolute star.
Just to let you know we are having a wonderful time. We were thrilled this morning to see the Taj in all its magnificence and with NO scaffolding!

The holiday was excellent. I am very pleased with the way your organised it and will recommend you. If we do another trip to India we will certainly do it through you.

We have just returned from the wonderful holiday in Kerala which you arranged for us. We doubt if we could have had a more enjoyable experience. Everything went like clockwork, from the moment we arrived at Gatwick to returning there. The Emirates A380 is one of the best I have flown, with 3” more leg length than BA or Virgin etc.
All the accommodation was first class, and we particularly approved of the environmental policies of the three CGH venues we stayed in. For luxury the Heritage in Madurai would be hard to beat. The crew on the houseboat were very helpful and looked after us well. Our final stay was with Sunil at the Teak House. What an interesting man and what a good host.
We must make special mention of Jess, the driver we had at our disposal for 8 days. Always spot on time, always helpful and very knowledgeable about local vegetation, crops etc. Weather was mostly good except when we caught the edge of the cyclone, which created a couple of days of monsoon like conditions.
Thank you Kerala Connections for a first rate experience.

PS Other travellers on similar tours whom we met were very envious of the very useful booklet you provided.
Your organisation was fantastic with no waiting for anything - all drivers, guides were on time. Cars very comfortable with excellent drivers. Houseboat staff were excellent as was Francis Residence.

Mrs Turner and her friend travelled to both North and South India.
We enjoyed the trip very much. Bhainsrorgarth – quite delightful and the best food we had. Jhalwar –in a kind of time capsule - especially the plumbing!! But that is part of its charm. Ahilya Fort – excellent, good service and lovely setting. Ahilya by the Sea (Goa) – slightly marred by the cyclone but nice all the same.
The arrangements went smoothly and there were no problems. Bennett (our driver) is intelligent, patient and reliable, he quickly tuned in to our sense of humour and as a result we had much laughter during the trip. It was a great trip, so thanks to all who assisted.
The organisation and communication was perfect. Our driver, Sanil, was always abreast of our itinerary, enormously helpful, punctual and friendly. He made an enormous difference to our holiday. The most memorable part of our holiday was the stay with the Kumar family in Coonoor. All the homestays were excellent but this was outstanding in terms of engagement with the family and (as vegetrians) food.
