        Splendid transportation service
        Me and my wife spent 5 wonderful days in Kerala. Everything was very well managed and ensured to be operated in perfect manner. The car was in good condition and we have a lovely time. Our driver was a nice person and he drove us very safely. Driver was very cooperative. Can't expect better arrangements than this.

        Excellent Transport Arrangements
        Transport arrangements provided by the company went above and beyond our expectations. We were seven girls travelling together and got no trouble of any kind. The company manager was very supportive and took good care of our belongings. We had an excellent conditioned brand new car for our travel with a professional driver and a knowledgeable tour guide. Absolute professional service. The hospitality offered by the staff of the company is remarkable and we will highly recommend this company for excellent transportation arrangements.

        Suberp Tour and excellent driver Saleel
        Cons: the management seems very unflexible with the routes, but after a big discussion I got my will. Pros: If you are driving with Saleel, you will get a suberp tour with 20years experience. Clena Toilets, nice activities and a safe ride. He even brought a cute gift for our daughter. This should be definitely 6 stars!

        Kerala at its best
        We had a memorable experience. The highlight of our tour was backwaters. We had a nice luxury Houseboat and the food was delicious too. Raj has served us very well. The vehicle was in good condition and we can't ask for better arrangements.

        Intimate and insightful tour of Kerala
        We just returned from a wonderful and memorable 7-day trip to Kerala - our first family trip to Kerala and also India. Travelling with our 16 yo son with autism who also has extreme sensory sensitivities and anxiety has always been a challenge - more so on unfamiliar soils. Hence we had a long list of requirements which Mr Gaurav patiently and thoroughly addressed before our trip. Based on that, he also drew up a customised itinerary which was perfect for us. This gave us the assurance and confidence to go ahead with it, despite initial apprehensions with the added challenge of late night/red-eye flights which were a first for our son. Tip: emails to the company email addy took a couple of days for the to and fro but once we got Mr Gaurav on our whatsapp, he was super responsive and checked in on us throughout the trip. Our assigned driver for the trip, Mr Saleel, was an excellent guide throughout our trip. We were able to gain so much intimate knowledge of the sights and sounds of Kerala through his generous and fond sharing of fascinating history and information. Being a native of Kerala, he knows the state like the back of his hands and we were also guided by his recommendations on when and where to stop off on our road trip and also where to eat - given his vast contacts from his 15 years' experience. He was also completely flexible and accommodating of our requests. Despite the long hours on long winding roads, we were very comfortable throughout in his sturdy Toyota Innova. Mr Saleel was a lively commentator and yet remained suitably discreet and sensitive to our needs, hence everyone felt very comfortable with him including our son who really loved being in his car. He also made us the excellent recommendation of taking the Shikkara instead of the Houseboat, which we had to forgo as our journey would have required us to stay overnight on one - which we weren't sure our children were up for it. The Shikkara, being smaller in size, offered us glimpses into the Alleppey village life in the smaller backwaters which would not have been possible with a larger Houseboat. Enjoying the sunset in the cool breeze and amid a flock of birds over the calm and beautiful backwaters was truly a magical experience! The trip to the Periyar National Park was less successful as it was practically rained out! Our son had several meltdowns as we were pelted on relentlessly by heavy rain, shoving masses mainly older folks from other states on a weekend outing and chaotic arrangements by the national authorities running the park. It was just unfortunate timing as the cruise to sight the wildlife would have been enchanting otherwise with the beautiful landscape and unique experience of safari on a boat. Lesson learnt: avoid places frequented by locals on weekends. At the end, all the tourists on our boat shared a good laugh over how dismally the cruise turned out. Needless to say, we did not see many animals. But through this, we also experienced the beauty of the Kerala people. From the Munnar jeep driver to the airport personnel, hotel staff, safari boat steward, the ordinary people in the streets, Mr Saleel our driver - we experienced nothing but empathy, care and concern from them every time our son had a meltdown or faced difficulties. Instead of flinching, judging or avoiding, their immediate instinct was to reach out and help. We lost count of the number of people who stepped up to offer their help or gave us a reassuring pat on the shoulder and an encouraging smile after we explained his condition and behaviour. The warmth and kindness of the Kerala people, and the beauty of the land - that will remain as part of our travelling tales for a long time to come.

        Excellent Service
        We booked a 7 day Keraka tour but due to a visa problem missed most of it. Gaurav kept on top of the itinerary changes, updating from day to day. When the houseboat contactor substituted a poorer boat, Gaurav followed up and eventually sent a cash refund to our hotel in Udaipur.

        10 days car rental in kerala
        The trip was excellent and thanks to this transportation company and its entire staff for making things possible for me. The driver and his car proved too good. The car felt smooth on this long drive transport service. The gps enabled car helped us to see the blockage on some roads en route. The experienced driver showed his experience on the busy market roads of kerala. Highly recommended service!

        Same day car rental service – affordable transportation for Munnar
        After getting recommendation from one of my friends I booked a taxi with them for my one day trip to Munnar. It is a hill station and I went there to be in harmony with nature. I was intentionally looking for a young driver so I requested the company to arrange someone like my age. They didn’t disappoint me. Because of same age group I was able to talk to my driver freely and was able to cover a long distance while talking only. The driver was sincere and knowledgeable. The car was also neat and clean. The seats were nicely covered. Every equipment of the car was in good condition. I felt too good!

        Very reliable driver and transportation service!
        The driver was educated and experienced. He came with his white color taxi to pick me from the requested location on the scheduled time and didn’t delay the departure after that. He didn’t ask me any unnecessary question and just concentrated on his driving. Though I asked him some questions to which he answered very politely. The company didn’t take much out of my pocket for this car rental service. I think it was a good drive.

        Car taxi service – Immediate booking and transparent charges
        The transportation booking was confirmed same time. Documents and other things were processed same day and we got a shining car like a brand new arrived from the showroom.  They introduced us to a few drivers and we choose one according to our understanding. That was a good management and customer care service.  The car hire service ended with some good memories and we definitely recommend this transport company to all.

        Best tour of Kerala
        The highlight of our tour was Munnar- a beautiful hill station in the lap of nature. Saleel has assisted us at Cochin airport and we drove to Munnar for our 2 nights 3 days trip. The hotel Elixir Hills was excellent and the facility available there was just perfect. Will sure come back and use the services again.

      Vibin was a fantastic driver who met us at the airport in Cochin, drove us through Munnar, Periyar, and Kovalam, and pointed out interesting sights and photo opportunities along the way.

      This trip has some long drives however it gave us an opportunity to see some beautiful areas of Kerala.
      The car was very comfortable, Vibin took us to nice restaurants that weren't so expensive. The trip was ultimately a good though rapid-pace experience of Southern India.

      We had upgraded the tour to five star hotels and experience by paying additional money, unfortunately it was not so. Started with driver being able to speak only Malayalam and he couldn’t understand what we spoke. Car was bad and the organiser would promise every day to replace the car and the driver by next morning without really acting on it. Hotels and rooms were much worse than promised e.g. did not get ocean view room at Uday Samudra at Kovalam. Overall, felt no value for money

      It was really a very nice experience and comfortable tour. Even though due to covid many activities were closed down, the driver Raj managed to show us the best sightseeing places in Munnar, Allapuzha and Kochi. The most exciting part was houseboat trip. The boat was very beautiful and comfortable. I would highly recommend Ktps for a wonderful Kerala holidays.

      Right from the initial planning stages to our good bye, all was PERFECT. Our driver was a kind, soft spoken gentleman who immediately brought smiles to the kids' faces. He knew all of the perfect spots of photography in Kerala. The best was kumarakom backwater and shopping of spices and coffee from the natural market. Houseboat stay was a new experience. Everything was flawless and that’s why I highly recommend Kerala Tour Packages.

Kerala lives up to everything we have heard about it. Large coconut trees, beaches, spas, spices and the great aura is essence of it. Backwater rides were exceptional!

Kovalam beaches made us fall in love with Kerala. Ayurvedic Massage and spa at Munnar evaded the tiredness. Everything from our driver to hotels in Kerala ws just perfect.

      I can honestly say this was the best, most comprehensive, and luxurious trip we have ever been on! Thank you Kerala Tours Packages. What to say – all new experience of spending night in houseboat to beyond imagined backwater ride. Food and culture and above all cleanliness of this state is admirable. Beautiful beaches and lush green gardens were favourite of mine.

      My husband and I could not have been more impressed with each of the choices of Kerala tour packages. The hotels they chose were like the pieces of art and reflected each island's culture and personality. both backwater and stay at house both were first rated experiences. Kerala tour packages made us feel like VIPs with each and everyone of his choices, and we truly could not have been happier.
