Holiday Reviews

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

We think of the entire tour as being Swallows and Amazons, in India, by bicycle. The sheer diversity and the immediacy of exposure to the people and landscape, and (for us), the exotic birdlife, made this a complete adventure. One can't experience all of that through a car window.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
Throw yourself into the whole thing but don't over-exhaust yourself in the early days of cycling.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced
environmental impacts or supported conservation?
Kalypso Adventures has the interests of Kerala, and its people, at heart and seeing it all by bicycle minimised our environmental impact. We cycled, we looked, we walked and we bought a few things that re grown or made by local people.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
The best holiday we have ever been on.

We wanted a challenge but not wall to wall cycling where there wouldn't be a chance to 'stand and stare'. The balance was just right. Kerala is stunning, and exploring by bike gave us a connection we wouldn't have had by car. To cover the distances, we generally left early and arrived by about 2, so a chance for exploring, cultural visits or yoga or sitting! The hotels were all good, clean, mostly small enough to be friendly and intimate, and all in wonderful locations.

Just like to thank you and your team for a well organised and most enjoyable trip. All of our group were impressed with the organisation and content of the tour.
Francis, Deepu and Ratheesh were attentive and professional and we would have no hesitation in using your company again and recommending you.

What an amazing time we had on our rural Rajasthan trip. Everything was so well organised from the route to the hotels which were all so interesting. But what made the trip so good was the excellent leadership of Neeraj. He is an exceptional individual who managed everything so professionally. He was always friendly but made it quite clear that safety was his paramount concernAbly assisted by Rattan who as always was very keen to ensure we all had a good time. His help to our weakest cyclist was very much appreciated and was so kind. Not one of our group had one negative comment! Thank you also for fixing my bike problem so quickly.Hope to do another holiday with you soon

We had the most wonderful trip to Kerala.The hotels, homestays, bed and breakfasts and houseboat we stayed in were all excellent, and we especially loved Dewalokam Spice Plantation as the perfect place to relax, eat delicious food and find out more about Keralan cooking, spices, rubber plantations etc etc. The tea plantations and landscape in Munnar were stunning, the inland waterways so peaceful and the beach at the end of the trip was a great way to finish up. Everywhere we went the hospitality was so welcoming, warm and friendly. The comfortable minibus which took us from place to place felt really safe and we had an excellent driver. Our guide made sure we got the most out of all the destinations we visited, and was especially knowledgeable on the birdlife. We saw wild elephants in Periyar on Christmas Day, quite a gift! All four of us felt like we’d had an incredibly relaxing yet culturally rich and colourful holiday, the perfect combination for us. Thank you.

The most exciting part of our holiday was having a varied programme with a mixture of activities ( kayaking, swimming, hiking and cycling) interspersed with fantastic scenery and wildlife and very friendly and informative staff. It was a wonderful family orientated holiday, with fun activities, beautiful countryside, helpful staff and excellent food. We made some wonderful memories; I would not hesitate to recommend it to a friend.
