Plan Your Kerala Tour: A Step by Step Guide

If you are in the planning stage of a great holiday or honeymoon to Kerala, I suggest you to go through the details below. This is written from my own experience in planning Kerala tours for many guests like you. This article will definitely help you in deciding every aspect of your tour.

Getting Ready For Your Dream Kerala Trip

 “A Practical Guide to Help You Plan Your Kerala Holidays”

  • Before doing any research, finalize the number of days you can spend on your Kerala holiday. This is crucial as you can decide on places to visit as per your leave only.
  • If you are having enough leave from office, go through different tourist spots in Kerala, and with the help of your tour organizer finalize the number of days. In both cases, freeze your arrival and departure dates.
  • Once this is finalized, you can book your tickets to Kerala. While booking onward journey, it’s always advisable to book up to Cochin. Trivandrum is another option – book up to Trivandrum only if your first destination is Kovalam or Kanyakumari. Calicut is good only if your first destination is Wayanad.
  • Cochin is also spelled as Kochi, and is also known as Ernakulam. While booking a bus you can make the booking to Ernakulam. While booking a train you may book to Ernakulam North or Ernakulam South as some trains stop only at one station. The station code for train booking is ERN or ERS. For flights, make the booking to Cochin or Kochi (location code is COK). By any means, try to reach Cochin as early as possible to cover maximum spots.
  • Tourists from Coimbatore, Bangalore, Mysore, Chennai and Hyderabad can reach Kerala by train, flight or bus. From Coimbatore, bus is the best option. If you are traveling from Bangalore, you have all three options. Normally a bus takes 9 – 12 hrs to reach Cochin from Bangalore. Nowadays multi-axle Volvo buses are reaching Cochin in 9 to 10 hrs. This varies on road conditions. There is a check post at Tamil Nadu – Kerala border and very rarely, we have seen buses come late due to checking at this check post. There are lots of buses plying on Bangalore – Cochin route and this is a good option to reach Kerala from Bangalore. You may even check for sleeper buses. A train takes approximately 12 hrs from Bangalore but getting a ticket is the biggest challenge. If tickets are available, this is the best option. In any case, try to book a bus/train which reaches Cochin in the morning. If you are opting for flight, book a flight that reaches at least before noon.
  • From Hyderabad, flight or train is the best option. Choose a bus only if nothing works out, as it takes almost 18 hours. Nowadays buses are plying from Mumbai also but use this as your last option, as it is nearly a 36 hour journey.
  • From Mangalore you can travel by bus or train. From Mysore, you have the option of only bus, or else you need to travel to Bangalore first and then to Cochin. From Chennai you can travel by bus, train or flight. Bus and train takes almost 12 hours to reach Cochin.
  • From Delhi, Ahmadabad or any other destinations to Kerala, you have the option of traveling by train or flight only.
  • For those who are coming from other countries, you have the option to come directly by flight. You can also get off at one of the metro city air terminals and come to Kerala by train. You need to do all the booking beforehand to avoid any confusion.
  • Once onward journey is booked, you may book return ticket. While booking return ticket, please be careful about timings and destinations. I suggest you book this only after finalizing the package, or at least the itinerary.

Pick the Destinations

Now we need to finalize on the destinations to be covered. This is where we need to balance between the number of days you have and your interests. A small description about the major tourist spots in Kerala should help you with this.

Major Tourist Destinations in South/Central Kerala

  • Cochin – In most cases this is the place you land in Kerala. If you are interested in Cochin sightseeing, you can either do this on the first day – upon arrival at Cochin, or if you have enough time on last day, go for it.
  • Munnar – This is the best tourist spot in Kerala. You’d love to see it 100 times. Munnar is a hill station.
  • Thekkady – Thekkady has the Periyar wild life Sanctuary that you can visit when you go for boating at Thekkady. Thekkady has a lot of adventurous activities and eco tourism activities too.
  • Alleppey/Kumarakom – This is the place where you can go for a houseboat cruise. Alleppey also has a lot of resorts to relax, and there is also a beautiful beach.
  • Trivandrum- The capital city
  • Kovalam – Lovely beaches
  • Kanyakumari – Though this is in Tamil Nadu, if you are travelling up to Trivandrum (and if time permits), it is advisable to have a visit.
  • Athirapilly-Vazhachal – Biggest water falls in Kerala.
  • Cherai – Another beach near Cochin.
  • Guruvayoor – Pilgrim place, the famous Krishna temple. There is an elephant sanctuary at this place with more than 65 elephants.

Major Tourist Destinations in North Kerala

  • Northern part of Kerala has Wayanad to visit. Wayanad is approximately 300km towards north from Cochin.

Plan Your Itinerary

From the above listed major tourist destinations, make a list of places you wish to cover in Kerala.

I shall be writing about all these places in detail below with travel time required for each. After reading this post, you would be in a position to finalize the places to visit depending on your leave from office. Once places of visit and number of nights in each destination are finalized, the itinerary can be prepared with ease.


Most of the time, this is the place where you land in Kerala. If you have enough days in Kerala, a full day visit of Cochin is worth doing. Cochin has lot of sightseeing places including Marine drive, Chinese fishing nets, Fort Cochin where you can visit Dutch palace, Jew Synagogue etc.

For more info read our blog post : 9 Must See Places in Cochin.

If you are short of time, I suggest you to move directly to your first destination from Cochin. This can be Munnar which is 4 to 5 hours drive from Cochin, Thekkady which is 5hrs drive, Alleppey 2hrs, Guruvayoor 2hrs and Athirapilly-Vazhachal, a short 2 hours drive. If you want Kovalam as your first destination, it is better to arrive at Trivandrum instead of having a hectic travel of 6 to 7 hours on the same day of arrival.

For every travel you need to consider halting time in between for sightseeing, food etc. If your first destination is Alleppey Houseboat, make sure you reach Cochin at least by 9AM so that you can check in to Houseboat at 12Noon. If your arrival is after 10AM at Cochin, then don’t plan Alleppey Houseboat cruise on the same day, as check in to houseboat is at 12Noon and check out is at 9AM next day. If you are reaching Cochin after 3PM, then don’t plan any travel on that day. In this case, best option is to stay in a hotel near to airport or railway station depending how you come to Cochin. Most hotels near the airport offer free pick up from the airport, thus helping you save money on a vehicle for that day. Do inform your travel agent about your mode of arrival, so they can book the hotel accordingly. Cochin airport is almost 20km from Cochin city/railway station.

If you are planning to stay at Cochin on arrival day, normally check in time of all hotels is 12 Noon and if you are reaching early morning, do inform this in advance to your travel agent. In this case you can request for early check in. Most of the hotels allow this subject to room availability and do note that breakfast will not be complimentary for this day.

If you are planning to travel to other destinations on the same day, I suggest you to start directly to that destination, instead of having a half day sightseeing of Cochin and then traveling to next destination. If you are arriving at Cochin by train or bus or after a long flight travel, try to refresh yourself before driving from Cochin to your next destination. This helps you to enjoy the trip right from beginning and you can do all your sightseeing on the way. Coordinating your first destination in accordance with your arrival time is very important.


Munnar Tea Gardens
Munnar, a hill station, is one of the most beautiful places in Kerala. There are lots of Tea plantations and more than a dozen places to see near Munnar. This is a must see place if you are visiting Kerala. Climate will be mostly cold throughout the year. Munnar is 140km from Cochin.

For more info read our blog post : 13 must visit places in Munnar!

If you are traveling to Munnar, you should try to stay there at least for 2 nights. For your onward journey, travel time listed from Cochin is 4 to 5hrs, but in practical you will reach Munnar in about 7 to 8 hrs only. There are lots of sightseeing spots in between. You can enjoy waterfalls and rolling hillside with tea gardens on the way. During this travel enjoy as much as you can on the day and don’t be in a rush to reach Munnar. You can even visit spice plantations on the way. After enjoying the scenery, you will be reaching Munnar by evening only.

If you feel like, you can spend some time in the market. If your hotel is away from Munnar town, try to have food and finish all activities in town and move to hotel. Coming back from hotel to town in night is not a good idea as there can be fog in the road and driving is not safe.

Second day should be dedicated for sightseeing in and around Munnar. If you want to cover almost all places, try to start sightseeing by 8.30. Or you can choose places to visit according to your interest and mood. Purchase spices, tea etc. while you go for shopping. Do visit Eravikulam National Park to see the endangered mountain goat of South India, the Nilgiri Tahr.

eravikulam-national-park-entrance-feesSelecting the resort/hotel is most important while you are in Munnar. Every hotel in Munnar is not in town, you will find hotels within a radius of approximately 30km from Munnar. See Hotels in Munnar .Most of the good resorts are away from city. . If you are a person who wishes to stay in city, do make sure the hotel you select is in city itself. If you want to be away from all traffic and love to have a relaxed mood select a resort/hotel accordingly. While approaching any tour operator, if you have a specific choice, make sure you communicate this clearly.

It is always better to do a Google search on the hotel selected. Nobody can tell you whether you will like a hotel or not. As this is very subjective and depends upon your interests and background. Personally I like to stay away from city when I am on holiday and used to prefer hotels outside the city. But for business trips, I prefer city hotels.

A normal package can be prepared with 2 night stay at Munnar. If you wish to stay at Munnar for 3 nights, you will get a lot of time to relax. A package with one night in Munnar is not that advisable. I have seen many times people taking package with one night at Munnar and one night at Alleppey when they have only 3 days to spend. This is not a good idea as they will not be able to cover neither Munnar nor Alleppey.

From Munnar, you can travel to next destinations like Thekkady, Alleppey, or Cochin. Moving to Kovalam directly from Munnar is not a good idea as travelling time would be minimum 10hrs. If you are moving to Cochin to catch return flight/train do make sure you have minimum 6hrs in between, as you may even stop for food during this travel. So do your time planning accordingly.

Here is an easy to follow map with the major tourist spots in Munnar. This map will help you in planning your itinerary during your visit to Munnar.

The famous Periyar wild life sanctuary is in Thekkady. Thekkady is sometimes referred to as Kumily or Periyar. Thekkady is the best place to visit if you are interested in adventure and eco-tourism activities. If you are not interested in such activities, you have only Periyar wild life sanctuary to see.

For more info read our blog post : More info about Thekkady 
To watch wild life closely, you need to go for boating through the Periyar River. Wild animals, forest areas of Periyar sanctuary and Mullapperiyar dam from long view can only be seen during this boating. Vehicles are not allowed inside the sanctuary for sightseeing.
Boating in Thekkady has fixed timings and the guest need to be personally in the queue to get tickets. You need to give your personal details as well as show ID card while taking this ticket. Depending on season, the rush for boating varies. In peak seasons, there might be heavy rush, so try to be in queue at least 3 to 4 hrs before the departure time.

Thekkady has lot of activities/shows running in the evening. If interested, you can watch Kalarippayattu (martial arts of Kerala), Kathakali, Magic show, musical fountain, tribal dance etc. You can also go for Ayurveda massage, Elephant ride, Elephant bath, Elephant shower, Spice plantation tour etc. You can plan for boating through Periyar River as well above activities if you have one night stay at Thekkady. Unless you are interested in adventurous activities, don’t stay for more than 2 nights there. If you are opting for two night’s stay, you can relax on the second day enjoying the wilderness of Thekkady..

If you are an adventurous person, this is the place for you. Plan for 2 or 3 nights at Thekkady and you get to do all sorts of adventure activities here. You can go for Gavi tour which includes full day Jeep safari, trekking etc., bamboo rafting, eco-tourism, nature walk, night patrolling etc. Go through the details for these activities and fix the number of days you want to stay at Thekkady.

From Thekkady you can move to Alleppey, Munnar, Cochin, Madurai (Tamil Nadu), Kodaikkanal (Tamil Nadu). Again Kovalam is not a good idea as there will be lot of traveling.

Very recently we have found a website where you can do online booking for boating at Periyar. Though we have not tried this, one of our guest did it themselves. Thought of sharing that website here.

Online booking for Periyar boating can be done on The rates are Rs 248 for adult & Rs 75 for student.

Distance to various places from Thekkady

  • Distance from Thekkady to Kumily – 4km
  • Distance from Thekkady to Munnar – 110km

  • Distance from Thekkady to Cochin – 170km

Houseboat Cruise in Alleppey:

kerala-backwaters-smallAlleppey is famous for Kerala style houseboats. Alleppey has a good beach also. A houseboat cruise is a different experience and should not miss this if you have enough holidays with you. Houseboats give a different feel than staying in a hotel. These floating villas have dining hall, rooms with bath rooms and kitchens. Number of rooms varies from one to nine as of now.

For more info read our blog posts:
1. Backwaters of Kerala
2. Alleppey Backwaters
3. Backwaters of Kuttanad

Houseboat cruise can be of two types; you can either opt for a 21hrs overnight cruise or can take morning cruise for 5 to 6 hrs.

If you are opting for morning cruise, you have to check-in at 10AM and check-out will be at 4 or 5 PM depending on the cruise provider you opt. In this case, you will be greeted with welcome drink (lime juice or tender coconut) and will serve lunch prepared in boat and evening snacks. Boat will cruise through the inland canals, backwaters and lakes. And you can also watch the long stretch of paddy fields at Alleppey (Kuttanad). This cruise, I am sure, will be one of the most memorable experiences of your lifetime.

Boat will halt during lunch timings and food is prepared in the boat itself. The boat will have a Captain (driver), Cook and sometimes a helper too depending on the size of boat. These boats are engine driven.

For overnight stay houseboat cruise (21hrs), you need to check-in to your houseboat at 12 Noon and check-out will be at 9 AM next day. The boat will take you for a cruise at 12 Noon and will be going around till lunch time. The boat will halt for lunch and after lunch it cruises till 5.30 to 6PM and then anchors till next day morning. You will be cruising again next day for at least an hour before check out.

For this kind of cruise, you will be getting welcome drink, lunch, evening snacks, tea, dinner and breakfast for the next day morning. Food is prepared in the boat itself and all boats will have their fixed menu. They take your food preference before you reach Alleppey and raw materials will be stored in boat before it leaves the shore.

If you are a non-vegetarian, you will be getting rice, vegetable (2types), fish fry, curd, pickles, pappad, Sambar for lunch and chicken, chappathy, rice, vegetable curry, dal for dinner. If you are a vegetarian, the menu is similar with some changes. It will be Payasam instead of fish fry for lunch and one more variety of veg curry instead of chicken for dinner. For breakfast, it will be idly-sambar, omelet and bread butter jam.

It’s always advisable to inform them in advance if you have any specific preference as once you start the journey getting raw materials is not easy. If you have children with you and want more milk or such food, don’t forget to inform that in advance. During the cruise, you can purchase prawns, extra fish on your own (if you feel like). The crew will cook and serve that for you.

If you are opting for A/C Houseboat, unless specifically mentioned A/C operates from 9 PM to 6 AM only. If you require full time A/C or need extra hours, then inform the houseboat operator in advance. You will be charged extra unless your package is with full time A/C houseboat. If you want extra A/C time, they need to carry extra fuel with them and unless you tell in advance, this will be difficult.

While on board, do close the windows and doors of your room in the evening. As it is in water and flies may enter in the evening. Houseboats are normally parked in a safe place where the owner of houseboat has easy access or is near to his house. Houseboats are of different categories and rooms may not be as big as your hotel room.

The biggest disadvantage of houseboat is that if there is some issue with A/C or TV in the night, it may not be able to get it repaired till next day.  To get an electrician late night to that halting place may not be possible.  But such things happen very rarely.

Depending on your interest, either go for 21hrs cruise or take a morning cruise and then stay in a resort at Alleppey or Kumarakom.

Kumarakom and Alleppey Resorts:

Kumarakom Resort
Alleppey is famous for Houseboats, backwater resorts and beach whereas Kumarakom is for Houseboats and backwater resorts. Both are just 30km apart. Both places have descent resorts as well as houseboats. Depending on the option selected, you may move to that place. You can plan for a resort stay either after a Houseboat morning cruise or for the next night after overnight cruise.

For more info read our blog post : More about Kumarakom 

If you have enough days, I always suggest taking one night stay in a resort after your Houseboat cruise.  In most cases, you will be reaching Alleppey or Kumarakom after 3 night stay at Munnar, Thekkady or any other places and a resort stay here will definitely relax you.

You can either move back to Cochin to catch your flight back or can travel ahead to Kovalam after this relaxing stay.
While selecting a resort at Kumarakom or Alleppey, make sure you do enough research. Make sure the resort is as per your liking because there are few things to do at when you are in a Kumarakom/Alleppey resort. You can visit Alleppey beach in the evening and can relax. Some backwater resorts do provide additional facilities like pedal boating, swimming pool and Ayurvedic spa. And  there are resorts providing  countryside boating, fishing and cooking class. This resort can be either at Alleppey, Kumarakom and I know some good backwater resorts on the way to Cochin also.

Once you are done with Alleppey and Kumarakom , you have several options. It depends upon your travel plan. You can either move towards Cochin and return back home on the same evening or stay at Cochin and travel to Guruvayoor or Athirapilly-Vazhachal on the next day. Or you can move to south from Alleppey to visit Kovalam, Trivandrum, Varkala and Kanyakumari. You also have the option of going to Thekkady or Munnar from here if you started the tour from Trivandrum. Alleppey lies almost midway between Trivandrum from Cochin.

Distance to various places from Alleppey

  • Distance from Alleppey to Cochin – 80km
  • Distance from Alleppey to Munnar – 190km
  • Distance from Alleppey to Thekkady – 140km
  • Distance from Alleppey to Trivandrum – 170km
  • Distance from Alleppey to Kovalam – 180km
  • Distance from Alleppey to Kanyakumari – 250km


Varkala lies in between Alleppey and Trivandrum and has a good beach. There are several beach resorts if you want to stay here. Opt for this place, only if you have extra days or skip this place.

 For more info read our blog post : Exploring Varkala and Nearby Tourist Places


padmanabhaswamy temple
Trivandrum is the capital city of Kerala. At Trivandrum, you can visit the famous Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple, Museums, art gallery, Zoo etc. If you have plans to visit the temple, make sure you have the required dress to get inside. Pants or jeans are not allowed for both ladies and gents. The temple can be visited between 5 to 11 in the morning or 3 to 6 in the evening. Visit other places as per your interest and time availability.

While at Trivandrum, it’s advisable to stay at Kovalam which is famous for its beach. If you are really in a tight schedule, one night stay is sufficient but we recommend two night stay to fully enjoy this place. When you have two nights at Kovalam, you can visit Trivandrum one day and next day you can visit Kovalam beaches. Select resort as per your interest at Kovalam.

There are some luxury resorts at Poovar also. Poovar is a place just 14km from Kovalam and is famous for its estuary, where backwater and sea meet!  To fully unwind you can extend your stay for one more night, either at Kovalam or at Poovar.

If Kovalam is your last destination, try to book return ticket from Trivandrum which helps you to spend enough time at this place and to avoid long journey of 6 to 7 hrs to Cochin. If your return ticket is from Cochin, try to leave Kovalam at least 8 hrs in advance to be on the safer side. And if the return ticket is for morning flight/train from Cochin, make sure you stay at Cochin instead of rushing from Kovalam on the last day.

From Kovalam, you can do day-visit to Kanyakumari. You can spend one night at Kanyakumari, if you have time.  Kanyakumari is 90km from Trivandrum and is almost 2hrs drive. There is Kerala-Tamil Nadu check post in between.

If your tour is starting from Trivandrum, you have the choices of moving to Kanyakumari, Varkala, Alleppey, Cochin from here.

Distance to various places from Trivandrum

  • Distance from Trivandrum to Cochin – 250km
  • Distance from Trivandrum to Munnar – 310km
  • Distance from Trivandrum to Thekkady – 270km
  • Distance from Trivandrum to Kovalam – 13km
  • Distance from Trivandrum to Kanyakumari – 90km


Though Kanyakumari is not in Kerala, if you are travelling up to Trivandrum it is recommended to visit this place. Try to have one night stay at Kanyakumari so that you can see the sunset as well as the sunrise. Make sure you reach Kanyakumari before 4PM to see the sunset. If you are on a tight schedule, a day trip to Kanyakumari from Trivandrum is also recommended.


Guruvayoor temple:

The famous Sree Krishna temple is at Guruvayoor. Guruvayoor is 90 kilometers, a 2 hour drive from Cochin towards North West. If you are planning to visit Guruvayoor, it is recommended to spend one night there. Though it is only a 2hrs drive from Cochin, you can expect a long queue and will have to wait for about 2 to 4 hrs to enter temple.

If you are staying overnight, you can visit the temple in the evening when the crowd is less. At around 7PM, there are lots of rituals happening there. When I go, I visit the temple at 6PM, have darshan and stay inside the temple till 8PM and come back to hotel. Then I wake up at 2.30AM and visit the temple again early morning at 3.30AM and come back to hotel. During this time, rush will be less and one can go inside quickly.

There is an elephant Sanctuary near to temple where you can see more than 60 elephants and is a must see place if you are visiting Guruvayoor temple.

Athirapilly-Vazhachal Waterfalls:

This is the biggest waterfalls in Kerala and is approximately 70km from Cochin. If you have enough holidays, you may consider visiting this place. During Athirapilly visit, either you can stay at Athirapilly itself or can come back and stay at Cochin. There are few good resorts at Athirappily –Vazhachal region.

Cherai Beach:

Cherai is ideal for a beach visit and is only 30km from Cochin. Either you can have overnight stay here or visit if you have enough time.



Wayanad is approximately 300km from Cochin towards north. If this is your first destination, try to book ticket till Calicut. A 3 night stay is advisable as all sightseeing places in Wayanad are not close to each other.  If your next destination is towards south, a night stay at Cochin is required as the drive from Wayanad to Cochin itself takes 7 to 8 hrs. If Wayanad is your last destination, you can book return ticket from Calicut instead of driving back to Cochin.


Hope with the above details, you will be now in a position to chart your travel itinerary with the destinations chosen and number of nights to be spent at each location decided.

Get Route Plan Done

Some suggested route plans are mentioned below.  Depending on your interest, you may decide on the number of days to be spent at each destination. You may skip any place in between also. As km is also mentioned, this will help you to get the routing done easily for your holidays.

Check the Weather Conditions

Kerala has a typical tropical climate around the year. December and January are relatively colder months, and the weather starts warming up from February. April – June are the summer months where it can be quite hot and humid.

The South West monsoon season from June – September sees a lot of torrential rainfall. Following that, there is the North East Monsoon that runs from October to December.

It’s best to plan your trip based on the weather conditions as well. Hillstations remain cool year round, and you can expect a higher tourist population during the summer months. Kerala is quite enchanting during the monsoon season, and you can enjoy the weather if you come prepared with appropriate rain gear.

Selecting Vehicle


Do select vehicle as per the number of people travelling and the luggage you carry. Indica is suggested only if number of persons traveling is three or less than that. When 4 people are travelling, there will be enough luggage and Indica is a vehicle which does not have boot space.


In Kerala, finding an Indica with carrier is difficult. If you are just 2 or 3 people traveling but require


better luxury go for Indigo instead of Indica. If there are 4 to 7 persons, then choose Tavera and for more luxury Innova can be selected.

If there are 8 or more people in your group, then travel in Tempo traveler. Do note that when you are on this holiday trip, you are travelling

Toyota Inova

approximately 150km every day that too through hilly areas. If you try to save money by congesting yourself in a vehicle, then your travel will not be relaxing. Not only that

Tempo traveller (12, 14, 17, 19 Seater)

your vehicle will find it difficult in pulling through hills. There should be space to keep your luggage also while selecting the vehicle.

Luggage/Cash/ID card

While travelling try to carry minimum luggage. Also try to take minimum cash with you and fewer ornaments. You will find lot of ATM’s in Kerala.

Do carry ID card of every person who travels with you. ID card is required at the time of check-in at hotels.


I hope this article helps you in planning your Kerala trip smoothly and to decide the itinerary. You may contact me at for any clarifications required. I would be the happiest person in this world to clarify you. I am reachable on 9947876214 any time.

If you find me wrong anywhere in the article, I am open for discussion and will be updating the same.

Thank you very much and wish you a great Kerala experience.

      It’s a wonderful article and has helped many people to plan Kerala trip. I plan to visit Kerela with my wife and 1 year kid in 3rd and 4th week of October 2017.
      My plan includes Cochin – Munnar – Thekkady- Alleppey – Kovalam/Trivandrum 9 days trip.
      I want to know whether self drive would be a good option or should I hire a local vehicle with a driver? I am a confident driver and believe I can manage it. Who provides such services of self drives where in I can.pick up the vehicle from Kochi airport and drop back at Trivandrum airport on last day of the trip?
      Thanks in advance.

    An excellent information compiled and dished out for people like me who want to know more and explore Kerala. I intend visiting the place with my family in the month of June specially for Munnar & Kovalam beaches. Kindly let me know whether, its the right time, in the light of Monsoon. Heard monsoons are quite harsh and one is stayed put in the Hotels during the season.

      Thank you Mr.Kanwaljit Singh for your kind words. Happy to be of help. June and July are our Monsoon months. They are exotic in their own way…but can be little harsh on some days. I love monsoon and it is the best time to get your body and mind refreshed. And traditionally, these are the months suggested by Ayurvedic Vaidyas (doctors) for best results in their treatments!!

    Hi Ratheesh,

    This is the most informative and to-the-point information regarding Kerala Travel I have seen on internet after going through all the’s of the world.

    It had been a great experience with Paradise Holidays since my first trip in 2009 and since then I have done 2 trips myself and 1 for a friend. Happy to see Paradise Holidays growing like a successful start-up… Initiating operations within family, taking it to different cities, launching new Logo (like it a lot!), engagement in CSR and most important – creating confidence!

    All the very best for future!!!

    Dear Mr. Ratheesh,

    As expected we had wonderful time at Munnar, Thekkady, Kumarkoah and backwater. Thanks again to your blog. Needless to say, when we have to visit Kerala again, we will only book it through Paradise Holidays.

    All the Hotels that your people had booked was realy great. Also driver Mr. Kumar, such a special person. He is both kind and knowledgeable.

    Thanks to Ms. Sylvia, who was so patient since the beginning of our interaction until we finalised the programme. Thanks also to your entire team, who have directly or indirectly participated in making our trip a great success.

    My few feedback:

    1. As mentioned earlier, you may think of providing entire kerala map along with the one already mentioned above.

    2. You may like to include Fun Adventerous Park along with the site seeing places. It was most exciting experience to be there. I am sure, no young people would like to miss it.

    3. We had to wait for more than 45 minutes to make our payment in your office, on the day we arrived at Cochi on 28th February. For most of us time is so important. It would be great if u find some ways to shorten that time.

    Thanking You again.

    Wishing all the Best for Paradise Holidays,

    Have a plan to visit Kerela. DATE OF ARRIVAL -25-10-2015 and will visit Munnar, Thekkady, Kumarkoah and backwater. Need to book with Paradise Holidays as I have heard that it provides the best package. I shall be accompanied with my mother aged 70, my wife aged 38 (both are patients of CMC Vellore) and my daughter aged 11 years. I shall go directly from Vellore (Katpadi Jn) to Ernakulam. Reach on 25th morning at around 6.50A.M. Return journey date will be 29-10-2015 to Howrah(West Bengal). I would request you to give the best option as I shall be taking the people for a change. So keeping that in mind revert at the earliest so that I may plan at my end likewise.

    Dear Mr. Ratheesh,

    As per our expectation we had wonderful time at Munnar, Thekkady, Allepey & Cochin. Needless to say, when we have to visit Kerala again, we will only book it through Paradise Holidays.

    All the Hotels which were booked were really great . Also driver Mr. ShreeKumar, was both easy person to deal with.

    Thanks to Ms. Nupur, who was so patient since the beginning of our interaction until we finalised the programme. Thanks also to your entire team, who have directly or indirectly participated in making our trip a great success.

    My few feedback:

    1. Also there was a communication gap in Allepey between Houseboat & driver which was sorted out though we have to wait around 30 min roadside.

    2. We had to wait for more than 30 minutes while leaving for Cherai in morning, on 23rd February same day our flight was scheduled later in afternoon so time was of essence for us. It would be great if you find some ways to shorten that time.

    Thanking You again.
