The whole holiday worked brilliantly - no problems. Responses to our booking queries were answered immediately. Thrilled to have our driver again from our previous Kerala trip 5 years ago. Thank you for another great holiday.

Great success and we loved every minute. Right balance of time in each place and right balance of rest to activity. Dewalokam – a gem!! For us 4 nights and our arrival in India it was the perfect starting point. We loved Ambady. Small, low key and charming staff. Houseboat - yes touristy but we loved it. Lovely people on boat and lovely views and setting. One night was probably enough for us, but a very special experience. Purity - top place this and ticks every box for us. Of course not much to do but chill. But discrete, charming staff and spectacular setting.
So thanks to you for all your help and assistance – we could not have done it or assembled it as well without you. So I am sure we will be in touch sooner rather than later.
We loved India. We love Kerala Connections. (Received immediately on their return to the UK).
We had a perfect trip to a land of wonders. Planning was excellent. Every stop was so different from the one before. We have nothing but praise for the help we had with planning and booking. We enjoyed the variety and standard of places to stay and the events planned for us balanced with free time. Length of stays and transfers were perfect. Travel through three states gave us a real flavour of southern India. Finally the driver - Sajeeven organised all our events and responded to our requests and interests to make our stay in India one that we will never forget.

A big thank you for arranging such a wonderful holiday for us. The Homestays were lovely and very friendly and I feel like we got a real taste of life in Kerala, which is what I wanted. Your information booklet was brilliant so helpful and I referred to it all the time. Your contact in Kerala was also very quick to respond and helpful (as you were before we left). We are now in Sri Lanka but have many memories of India that I will treasure and am already thinking about a return trip. I will get round to writing individual reviews for the Homestays but wanted to thank you first.

An exciting and most enjoyable holiday with a great welcome from agents, drivers and hotel staff. It was privilege to witness the Pongal holiday at the Tanjore temple, the fort and elsewhere. Our favourite place was Rajakkad, a tribute to British eccentricity, but we also enjoyed the unique Danish post-colonialism of Tranquebar and were lucky to witness posh wedding at the Radisson and a betrothal at Anantya. All in all a well-designed tour and a memorable holiday.
We have been back for a few days from our trip to Kerala: we had a wonderful time. Thank you for organising such a wonderful itinerary, selection of hotels and seamless transport/connections for us. We were able to fully relax and focus purely on enjoying the multitude of experiences we had. We were very impressed by how well everything was organised, and obviously Daniel/Jerry were constantly checking (mostly behind the scenes) that everything was running smoothly, even though they were not at all intrusive to us. They obviously were in touch with our driver, and also others to ensure everything was OK. Daniel pro-actively re-booked our domestic flight on to the next best option following the major delay to our flight from the UK so we didn't have to deal with that hassle, and it was all easy to sort out how to get the money to them. In short everything very, very well, was well coordinated, and we never had to worry about any of the logistics, leaving us to relax and enjoy our holiday.
Spotting so many exotic and sometimes rare birds, the journey through the Western Ghats and meeting so many friendly India people were the most memorable and exciting parts of this holiday. I would not hesitate in recommending to a friend.

Absolutely perfect holiday in every way. Transfers, meet and greets, organisation, pre-trip planning and accommodation recommendations we could not fault in any way. Thank you!

We are very satisfied with our holiday. The service you and the local agents have provided is excellent. Everything was well planned and the local agents were always in the back-ground to help, if needed. Like guardian angels. The food at Marari Sands was fantastic, and the environment balm for the soul. The Dune got a lower score because the outside furniture was broken and you could not sit on the porch. We also wondered why they change the linens every day, or do not give that option at all. The food and the yoga was perfect. We are very happy with Raven´s Nest. Good food, nice surroundings and a clear ecological and environmental thinking. All in all we want to thank you and your team for a holiday that met with our dreams and surpassed our expectations.

Many thanks for the amazing adventure of Kerala. Our timetable of events etc, went like clockwork and Kerala was such a vibrant, exciting and beautiful state. Mike a reluctant traveller to India, thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful experiences, meeting fellow travellers, all who seemed to be equally thrilled with their adventures!! South India has so much to offer, beautiful locations in tea/coffee plantations, lovely people, delicious food and yes even the chaotic traffic - all make India magical and exciting. Thank you again Gary - we have memories to last a lifetime.
