Holiday Reviews

 "We feel totally pampered having had nearly two weeks with Kalypso Adventures - cycling, birding, trekking, kayaking and generally having fun in Kerala. Thomas was great, very flexible, and helpful in organising our trip. Vipin was the BEST Guide imaginable and Shameer, safest driver and ace photographer. We were two couples and we had a superb introduction to India, thank you Kalypso!"

Multi Activity  |  Multi Activity Holiday in Kerala    

For me and my three teenage children, this was the trip of a lifetime. Seeing the elephants and monkeys in the forests in Periyar was the most exciting part of the holiday, though almost everything else was very memorable too - the spice farm visit, the kayaking; learning about local culture, history, nature and food from our guide. Our guide and driver were very skilled and knowledgeable and they accomodated any requests we had by making small adaptations to the schedule to make things even more enjoyable. By the types of accomation we stayed in and the types of guided trips we went on, I do believe that our holiday has reduced environmental impact, benefited local people and supported conservation.

 My wife and I booked Kalypso's "Vegan Holiday in Kerala" and it was amazing! The company was very accomodating of our timeline (and our poor organisation in terms of the booking process) - they were able to adjust and arrange the tour as needed.Our guide Jeffin and driver Vivek were both incredibly friendly, professional and knowledgeable and arranged and incredible sightseeing and cycling experience. Would absolutely book with Kalypso again!

"I cannot speak highly enough of the one day birding trip I took around the Thattekkad area that I organised through Kalypso Adventures. The organisation of the tour was extremely easy via email and all the arrangements were confirmed to me again a couple days prior to the trip.
I had Joji as my driver and guide for the day - he was was amazing. He had a wide knowledge of the area, the endemic species and where to find them We were able to spot over 60 species for the day (nearly all 'lifers' for me), with the highlights being sightings of a male and female Malabar Trogon, a Sri Lanka Bay-Owl and a Mottled Wood-Owl (at night).
We also spent some time at Hornbill Camp, where I had a lovely lunch during the heat of the day and then took a walk around the area for some more birdwatching.
Joji also took me to a great place for breakfast ('The Idly Shop'), a local chai stall (where I had my first banana fry) and then found a great restaurant for us to have dinner before I was dropped at the airport.
I will definitely recommend this company to others who go the Kerala."

We booked the ' Kerala Boat and Bike Tour' with Kalypso in November of this year. I just wanted to drop a line to say how fabulous we though it was. The staff on the boat were professional, caring and the food was excellent. We absolutely loved the cycling each morning, although we would never qualify for yellow jerseys! Jeffin paced it to our needs and abilities.We learnt so much from him, about life on the backwaters, the ecosytem, rice production, boat repair and production, it was truly amazing. We were travelling around India for three months, and this was definitely one of our highlights. Keep up the great work.

Thank you Kalypso and thanks to Anna, for her perseverence in helping us book it, Jeffin for his fabulous daily, informative and fun cycle excursions, the boat crew and back-up vehicle guy.

I wanted to give a quick trip wrap up and how much we appreciate Kalypso's help in making our summer adventure a GREAT SUCCESS!
Basically, we loved it. I wanted to highlight how much we appreciated Deepu. He truly became like a member of our family. He was always looking to make our experience more memorable and meaningful. He has the knowledge of the area and flora and fauna better than some of the guides! The boys were the most impressed when after our night hike he was plucking the leeches off our boots with his bare hands while wearing sandals!! Also, I mentioned we never felt unsafe with his driving. He drove confidently and efficiently without ever taking unnecessary risks. Overall we give Deepu a SOLID 5 stars and any guest would be lucky to have him as their guide!
We really enjoyed all our activities and the guides were exceptional. Unanimously we voted our best meals were at the Kalypso campsite!!! We hope to be back for the tuk tuk adventure someday :)
