Holiday Reviews

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.

All three days were such a difference in nature, every day was special and showed us a different side of the beautiful area we were in. Roger did a wonderful job leading us those days, he was patient, motivating and interesting to talk to. The organisation was perfect, everything on time, great food and very clean and pleasant camping sides.

We wanted to write and thank you (and your team) for an amazing cycling adventure. Francis was a fantastic guide - knowledgeable, enthusiastic and great fun to be with. Mathew was a great driver - careful, encouraging and always smiling. They worked really well as a team and we felt they adapted the trip to our needs (which we really appreciated). We loved eating in local places and felt we got to experience the real Kerala. All of the accommodation was great. Our only comment was that the tea plantation should serve local food, rather than attempt to make western cuisine. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday with your company, and would highly recommend you to other tourists. Many thanks again !!!

Cycling  |  Kerala Mountain Biking Holiday    

We are back from our amazing trip and pretty much back to normal. I wanted to let you know that we had the most memorable time in Kerala. All the places we stayed at were truly brilliant in their own ways. We were both fairly 'gobsmacked' when Geoff was given the flowers and the wine on the houseboat. The two homestays were just perfect. The Wildernest gave us a chance to mingle. We shopped, we ate with the locals and then chilled on our private balcony. We went on an early morning trek through the jungle with an excellent guide and decided that was probably the best time to do it. We both agreed that you saved the best till last. The Dewalokam Spice Plantation was definitely the best. The hosts and the staff were so friendly and helpful, it truly made it an amazing experience.

We were so looking forward to seeing Kerala and our trip did not disappoint us in any respect. Brijesh made us so welcome and we really do feel that we have made a great friend as well as him coordinating all arrangements for our trip with great humour and diligence. We had so many laughs with him, leaving him this time was quite sad! Dixon was a blessing too with snacks, drinks and an air conditioned car popping up when we most needed him as the cycling was very hot at times.The arrangements for our trip were seamless and you had really understood very well what we wanted with all of it suiting us perfectly. We stayed in the most lovely places with Teak house, Paneilly and Develokam being some of our favourites. Camellia house and the tree house was also just lovely.Altogether another brilliant holiday and we are heartily recommending you to anyone that asks us who arranged our trip. Thank you to you all.
