Holiday Reviews

To say our Munnar trek was the highlight of our two weeks in India would be an understatement. The trek was everything we wanted it to be – challenging, picturesque, and informative. This is almost entirely due to our guide, Brijesh. He was knowledgeable about the native flora, pointing out Rhododendron trees, goat weed, and lanterna. By the end of the two days, I’d learned the names of many new plants, as well as what they were used for or if they were invasive.


Brijesh also knew the natural features of the land, pointing out Anamudi on the first day as we trekked to Meesapulimala and Anerangel on the second day as we trekked through the Shola. He was pleasant to trek with, making nice conversation in great English. He checked in often to make sure we had water and that we weren’t getting too tired. Best of all, he gave credit to the support guides, Raghu and Raja, when it was due.

I would highly recommend booking treks through Kalypso Adventures – they took care of all the logistics (hotels, transfers, even our taxi back to Kochi). We’re considering a trip to Sri Lanka in the future, and we’d definitely book another Kalypso Adventure if we do.

We’d like to thank you for a wonderful experience and perfectly arranged trip. The hotels were great, and we loved the hikes and activities.

Reghu was an amazing guide, and did a great job at adapting some of the treks to our level. My girlfriend got an infection the day before our treks started, so we were both quite slow. But Reghu was very patient with us, which we appreciate a lot. He took us through really beautiful nature, and made stops at local tea shops along the way, recommended us great local food the last day, and made sure our dietary restrictions were taken care of as well. Best guide ever :)

Thanks again for an amazing trip and happy new year to all of you!

It was terrific and everything went smoothly. Suresh and Peter were wonderful as were all the crew at Hornbill and everywhere else we stayed.

We loved Emerald Isle… much better there than staying on a houseboat and the cultural performance was appreciated and enjoyed. He is very, very good.

It was all perfect. Thank you.

Re guides. Peter was excellent as was Suresh.

Kalypso Adventures put together a superb programme of places to see and to stay, and the balance between activity and rest was just right. All the arrangements worked perfectly and the places we stayed, while all individually different, were delightful. The hosts of the various homestays could not have been nicer, and indeed my lasting impression of Kerala is of how kind all the people we met were. The homestays were all comfortable and spotlessly clean, and as Lisa said, the food was superb. I had absolutely no concerns about standards of hygiene anywhere we went and we all remained healthy throughout the trip.

Our guide, Jeffin and our driver, Sibu were brilliant. Jeffin in particular was the consummate guide: knowledgeable about all sorts of things, discreet, alert at all times to our safety and comfort, and fundamentally just a really nice person.

Thanks for a terrific holiday – I don’t think I have ever enjoyed myself more when abroad.

An amazing holiday. We were well looked after and safety was always assured. Even when Kerala was enduring severe flooding.


We have learned so much about the culture, the history of Kerala and we have visited craftsmen and women making unique products based on local tradition.

We have met many welcoming and friendly people ensuring our enjoyment of the places we visited, and it has given us a real understanding of the issues affecting Kerala, the great potential for the future and the sheer determination of the community to progress through education and innovation.

It has been heartwarming to see the real team work in rebuilding the place after the most severe floods for 100 years.

You can place your confidence in the team at Kalypso Adventures.
Our driver Deepu was a great source of advice and made certain that two older women from the UK had a great holiday. We would strongly recommend an adventure here.
