          Safe and fun solo travel experience
          I had a very fun, safe, and adventurous trip to Kerala. I am a young Indian woman from Canada and I decided to travel to Kerala for one week before visiting family in Karnataka. I had never travelled internationally alone before, so naturally I was nervous. Nimsha was so helpful in planning my itinerary. She was very responsive by email and she checked in with me often throughout the trip. Meeting my driver Sumesh was one of the highlights of my trip. He was kind, helpful, knowledgeable, and I always felt very safe. He helped me see all of the sights that I was looking forward to visiting, even taking me on a bike through the hills of Munnar to see wild elephants. Additionally, Sumesh helped me obtain an Indian SIM card so that I could communicate with my family in India and have internet access anywhere I went. This largely contributed to feeling safe as a solo female traveller in a foreign country. Kerala is a beautiful place and the province has every type of tropical biome you could imagine. Ideal for nature lovers. The people of Kerala are also very kind and helpful. Overall, the planning and attentiveness of the tour staff was amazing. For my first solo trip experience, I was very pleased.

          Great trip thanks to Sanguine Holidays. We booked a custom tour. Our driver was great and everything went as planned. Nimisha was very helpful and responsive during the planning phase. It was great to have a local tour agency.

          Very well experienced Kerala Tour organizer
          I was searching for Kerala tour operator through online sources when I come across good reviewed tour operator and I decided to contact. Promptly information was received for tour package and after few changes everything was confirmed. All hotels selected were up to the expectation. Full time car and driver was included in the package and driver Sibin Jackob was absolutely well experience for all areas and we had really good time exploring all sites. I would recommend to book with Sanguine Holidays.

          Thank you Sanguine Holidays, amazing experience!!
          A BIG thank you to Nimisha @ Sanguine Holidays, you made our trip extra special and an unforgettable experience. From the time of my first enquiry to the very last day of my trip, Nimisha looked after us - in fact the two main reasons for choosing Sanguine Holidays were (1) Their positive reviews on trip advisor and (2) value for money. They recommended amazing hotels and activities based on my budget and answered all my questions before choosing the package. We have lovely memories of Kerala's best due to Sanguine and of course our amazing, friendly, patient and very professional driver - Gopakumar. I had requested someone who speaks English, is a safe driver and knows the area. Gopakumar was all of these things and more, so thank you to Gopakumar. If you are not sure whether to go for Sanguine, then I would suggest do not hesitate, look at the comments on trip advisor and select them. Thanks again for every thing.

          Kerala: Thank you Ms. Nimisha and Xavier
          Our Kerala adventure was truly unforgettable, thanks to Ms. Nimisha's expert planning. She tailored our trip based on our budget and preference. Thank you as well to Xavier our driver. He is a very skilled driver navigating winding mountain roads effortlessly. I always felt safe with his driving skills. While our journey was filled with incredible experiences, we recommend upgrading the accommodations to ensure a consistently comfortable stay. Due to our budget we did not upgrade all our accommodations just some. However but they are not bad just don't expect too much. We used Windsong, Merryweather and Uday and opted for the premium accommodation instead of the standard. Our driver Xavier was able to secure tickets either for the cultural show experience (i.e. Kathakali and Martial Arts) or tickets for the backwater ride. We directly settled the payment to the establishment. Ms. Nimisha's was checking on us making sure we are vacation was seamless and enjoyable. She went above and beyond to make our Kerala adventure truly special. We opted not to do the houseboat stay due to lack of hot water on the boat and mosquitoes. Instead we did the backwater cruise at sunset and stayed in Uday Hotel which was excellent. We especially like Munnar region. The tea plantation is absolutely gorgeous and wish we spent more time there. Thank you, Ms. Nimisha, for your dedication and hard work in planning our trip, and thank you, Xavier, for your excellent driving and friendliness throughout our journey. Your both made our Kerala adventure one to remember.

          An amazing tour around Kerala
          We did 12 days with Sanguine around Kerala and it was amazing. The food, oh, the food! And the views were stunning too. I've never seen such a consistently beautiful part of the world. Sumesh, our driver, was absolutely lovely and his calm manner and smooth driving helped to make our whole experience so relaxed and lovely. Any requests we had in terms of what we wanted to go and see, or anything else, were met straightaway. Might well be back in the future.

          Memories on the move
          Looking back , we had an amazing time in Kerala. We had 7 nights and went to munnar, thekkady, allepey, the coast and fort kochi. Yala nature walk was amazing. Our driver Sumesh was an excellent driver, and quick to reply on WhatsApp, always on time. The hotels were great , and made the trip special, it’s worth upgrading rooms where you can to get a better experience and head office were very helpful with this. We got lucky with the houseboat trip as we could visit a temple in the evening for the harvest celebration, this made it even more memorable .

          A lot to see in such little time!
          The agents were really helpful from the beginning of booking. We opted to upgrade on certain aspects and this was all taken care of. We knew the drives would be long so we upgraded to a larger car also. We were collected from the airport with no issues, our driver Anil was ready to take us for coffee before we began our long journey. Anil was very friendly and helpful and listened to what we wanted to do. We didn’t want to cram lots of things into our days and he accepted that. Our first stop was to get a case of beer as many places don’t sell it. The Tall trees in Munnar and Greenwoods in Thekkady were wonderful stays that we wouldn’t have found without sanguine holidays. There’s so much to see on the trip that it can get too busy that you miss out on the beauty of some of the hotel’s surroundings. Do take time to relax in these spaces as it’s not often you find gems like this. We enjoyed the coffee stops and juice stops along the way. Not so much the spice shop as the staff got a bit funny with us when we didn’t buy ‘anything and everything’ and it made us feel a little uncomfortable. The house boat tour was really lovely, it wasn’t quite what we expected for a luxury boat, but it was really calm and relaxing, just what we needed. The 2 staff were polite and friendly and made us some lovely food and ensured we were having a good time. It was far too hot in Kochi to do so much sight seeing so we asked Anil to drive us to the places and we will see them from the car. He was very informative about each area and has good knowledge on the venues. We finished in Kochin at a wonderful hotel called Brunton’s boat yard where we had a delicious lunch, it was pricey but well worth it! The end of our tour was in Cherai beach. Anil took us to our next booked hotel as it was a similar distance to taking us back to the airport. He ensured that we arrived safely and got checked in before leaving for his own family time. Thank you Sanguine for making our trip easy and hassle free. We would certainly recommend.

          Not worth the Overnight trip. Just take an afternoon ride on a house boat.
          The House Boat is not fancy, but is delightful. The disappointing thing is that a large group of boats left at the same time from Alleppey. As we headed down the river to the lake the pollution from all the boats was heavy. Quite a traffic jam. When we reached Lake Vembanad it was only a short cruise until we proceeded with a large crowd of boats (pollution again) to dock by a village in the backwaters. BUT the village was the regular docking location of all these boats - not a real opportunity to visit and see a village. I felt the people were very tired of seeing the tourists.

          Tour of Kerala - Excellent
          Our driver for this, Mr Thampi was excellent, careful and also helpful. Munnar was so picturesque with the tea plantations. In Thekkady we enjoyed most the Periyar National Park with boating at 3:30 to see the animals, elephants, bison, deer and many more. The houseboat tour with Pradeep was excellent and we also got to experience the smaller canals in a smaller boat. We choose to stay in Amber Dale hotel in Munnar - the valley view is excellent with sunrise. We choose the Greenwoods in Thekkady and it had so many amenities. This tour offers many options and we went with the nature options, but there are other choices to add or consider

          What a beautiful and relaxing journey
          During this 6-day journey, the travel agency helped us arrange a comfortable car and a reliable driver. The journey was safe and the itinerary was smoothly connected. No matter we had any problems, the beautiful Nimisha was able to help us deal with them anytime and anywhere. It was really reassuring. It is highly recommended that everyone must take part in the Sanguine Holiday itinerary. 👍👍

          Sanguine Holidays
          My whole trip was arranged and booked by Nimisha. She was very professional and provided us with the right amount of advice. We started the trip from Cochin where we were collected at the airport by our driver, Sumesh. There were only two of us on the trip but we had arranged for a large car(Toyota innova) for the sake of comfort and luxury. From the airport we travelled to Munnar and stayed at Amber Dale Hotel. It was a lovely hotel with beautiful views from our balcony. We stayed for two nights. Sumesh showed us all the local sights including tea plantations, Kathakali dances and we even got a couple of traditional aruyveda massages. From we travelled to Thekkady with the aid of our driver, Shumesh, and stayed for two nights at Greenwood resorts. Again nice hotel in a lovely location. Sumesh showed us all the local sight seeing and we also did an off road safari, however we were unable to spot any of the promised wildlife but the safari was still fun. Did another couple of traditional massages. From Thekkady we travelled to Kovalam. This was quite a long journey and was quite hectic but it turned out to be worth it. We stayed at Grand Turtle Beach Resort for two further nights. The hotel was wonderful with lovely sea view and a nice large balcony to laze in the evenings. The beach at Kovalam was clean and worth a visit. We did some sight seeing during day time and had lovely dinners in the hotel. We then travelled to Allepey from Kovalam, where we were staying on a ‘luxury houseboat’ overnight. The boat itself was ok, however my issue is whether the house boat was hygienically clean. It transpires that during our stay overnight on the houseboat, I somehow caught a viral infection that made the next five days of my holiday a nightmare! I believe this infection could only have been possible due to the cleanliness standard on the houseboat. From the houseboat, we transferred to Flora Hotel in Cochin before departing to London. We stayed at this hotel for a two additional nights. During the whole of this trip, Nimisha from Sanguine Holidays has liaised with us at all times and she had has been extremely helpful, as was Sumesh, our driver. It is just a shame that the later part of our holiday was ruined by a sickness that was outside our control but I have no hesitation in recommending Nimisha and her company to organise your next trip to Kerala. Just be careful of the houseboat that you use and please ask about their cleaning routines between stays.

        My 23 year old daughter and myself (her Mom) had a wonderful experience with Sanguin travels with our 5 day/4 night package to Munnar (2 nights), Thekkady (1 night) and Alleppy (1 night on houseboat). Nimisha took excellent care of us (2 female travellers from US) with upgrades to an Innova and also to a beautiful suite at Greenwood resort in Thekkady. The houseboat experience was also unique and it was lovely to see the beautiful sunsets, birds and eat the tasty food. Our driver Anil Kumar was a very safe driver and drove slowly on the mountainous roads. All in all, we had a lovely time thanks to Sanguin tours!!

        Hey guys,

        We overall recommend the tour operator and this trip but a lot about it comes down to the optional activities you will do so please spend some more time on the details of them to have a memorable stay :)

        Some tips from us:
        1. Munnar is just amazing and spending 2 nights there is definitely the best thing you will do during the trip. We were stationed in Le mount fort hotel and we can definitely recommend it for others. It’s possible to ask them to go with you to the nearby tee plantations for free which we did and loved. As to the optional activities we did Jeep ride to nearby landmarks for 4000 rupees (have mixed feelings if it’s worth it) , Jeep ride to the elephant village for 7000 rupees ( if it’s summer and the elephants come I highly recommend it. Usually the locals will know if they do. It’s a little far but great experience overall), the tee factory visit ( we liked it )
        2. In thekkady we did the boat tour of the park and the two shows with fighters and costumes. The shows are definitely worth doing. I would rate them 4/5. As to the boat tour I would consider doing some other activities at the park. For us it seemed really short. They have an extensive list of things to do. This however would mean modifying the trip a bit and coming back from munnar earlier.
        3. Allepey and the houseboat tour. A lot of the experience will come down to the boat you will be on. If you want to do it I would try to find a boat with good reviews.
        4. Cochin. Besides standard things we did a massage here and neemas cooking class. Definitely check out the class if you like cooking :)

        Great experience overall. Nimisha was very helpful and responsive booking everything and customising a trip for me as a solo traveller. She was very quick to reply and help me to arrange the trip, giving options for activities and where I would like to stay. She also checked up on how I was getting on several times during the trip.

        My driver, Anil, was also perfect: responsive, friendly, helpful, and I felt very safe in his hands.

        Overall I would recommend Sanguine Holidays to anyone looking at arranging a trip to Kerala: they are trustworthy experts.

        I booked this trip from Australia, & was a little bit nervous sending my money to an unknown company overseas, but Nimisha at Sanguine was absolutely fantastic! She talked me through every aspect of our booking & tailored the whole week around us & what we wanted to do & see, & our budget.
        Our guide, Anil, was an absolute legend, too. From the minute he picked us up, he was so friendly, funny & very informative. He made sure we had everything we needed, even when we didn't realise we would need it! An absolute gem of a man.
        We stayed at lovely accommodation, had really delicious food & got to experience some amazing things that we couldn't have done on our own.
        This trip was my first overseas trip, & I could not recommend Sanguine Holidays enough.
        They even helped us with things like booking railway tickets in another part of India before our tour started with them.
        I'll be recommending this company to any if my friends & family coming to this area.
        Cheers!

        From the initial enquiry, Sanguine were very prompt and helpful to all emails and WhatsApp messages.

        Our guide was an excellent driver on some very windy and busy roads. A bit more information about the places we were passing and visiting would have been good and also some more communication regarding how long the journeys would be, where we could stop enroute for photos etc would be useful. However he was very polite with good English.

        The trip involved a lot of travelling but we knew that before we went. The car was comfortable and we felt like we saw a lot in 5 days.

        This was an overall enjoyable trip and nice first introduction to India and the beauty of the Kerala region. We particularly enjoyed the overnight houseboat trip and stay. The boat and hut was really beautiful and while very large we had it all to ourselves. We found the scenery and nature beautiful, the Indian people very nice, and the hygiene was good everywhere. Please note that the driver was just that, a driver. He is not a guide, he actually knew nothing about the sites visited. The hotels are adequate, with clean rooms and range from basic to quite nice. The driving per day is between 2 and 4 hours, which is doable. The safari rides are well worth it with all the natural beauty. Please note most activities are not included and at additional charge to the venue, off-road safari companies etc. The local agent was responsive for queries and issues. If you want luxury though, this is not the right trip.

        Dear Mr. Daniel, Greetings from Kerala Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us on your recent Kerala Tour. We appreciate your feedback and are delighted to hear that you had an enjoyable experience overall. At the same time, we noticed your comments about driver. As it was a last minute booking in season time, there was shortage of vehicle and hotel availability at Munnar in our budget. But we will take care of this in future. We always strive to provide the best possible service and experiences for our customers, and your feedback is invaluable in helping us achieve this goal. Once again, thank you for choosing our tour package and for sharing your feedback with us. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again in the future and provide you with an even better experience.

        We did the five day tour of Kerala and would highly recommend it. It's a great way to see a lot of the sights of Kerala, which saves time on organising and planning the trip yourself. The highlights of our trip were the the jeep safari in Munnar, an elephant ride in Thekkady, visits to the tea factory, spice garden and the Folklore Museum in Cochin (which was exceptional), seeing a Kathakali performance and traditional martial arts show, and the overnight houseboat trip in the waters of Allepey.

        The hotel in Munnar is absolutely exquisite and the staff were amazing. There are lots of free activities available there and I recommend making use of them. I had a henna tattoo and we enjoyed the infinity pool.

        The only downside was our driver who was rather miserable. We nicknamed him Mr Grumpy! You also cover a huge area of Kerala, so there was a lot of time spent driving up hilly mountains. If you get travel sick, be prepared! We were fine but some people may struggle with the windy roads.

        On the whole, it was an absolutely fantastic experience and one we will remember for years to come. Nimisha is very professional and will always ensure you have the best experience. Thank you for the memories!

        We had a fantastic time on this tour! We loved the focus on the natural beauty (national parks, gardens, boating, etc.) and local culture. Sumesh, our driver/guide, expertly traversed the many (many) winding mountainous roads with great skill and patience. Nimisha was very organized and had superb communication throughout our journey. The whole tour felt very authentic--we appreciated experiencing so many of the riches that Kerala has to offer. All of the lodging was of very good quality and comforts, each excelling in their own unique ways (best food, best view, best balcony, etc). One piece of advice: Pack a lightweight rain jacket-if you do, you will experience all the wonders of Kerala (even during monsoon season) as we did!

        We did the tour as a couple, being in India for the first time. From the moment we booked the tour there was a clear communication about the program with all possibilities the modify the program as we wish. During the trip there was almost daily contact (text message) from our Sanguine contact to verify everything went smoothly. All selected hotels were excellent.
        The driver spoke English quite well and he explained some artifacts from the area as we explored the area. His driving skills were really good. The Indian traffic can be very hectic, but he kept always calm, drove us as comfortably as possible and knew the area really well.
        Since we had a private driver, the program was adjustable as we liked it. The driver could tell us exactly what was feasible and what not.

        The tour and the places we visited were very nice. We fully enjoyed the different landscapes and places and Indian hospitality. We’ve done as much as possible during the 5-day tour and nothing disappointed us. Every part of the tour and every activity was really beautiful. Incan describe a lot about all these nice activities, but you just have to experience yourself!

        From the start of first reaching out to this wonderful travel company the communication was excellent! We needed to start our trip within about 2 weeks of first contact and she had our trip planned that day with full confirmation in 1 day total and even changed things around at our request timo ensure we could stay at a certain resort. We visited Alleppey, Thekkady, and Munnar. The accommodations (1 night on a luxury house boat, 1 night at a beautiful hotel and 2 nights in a cottage, private driver, upgrade to larger vehicle etc) exceeded our expectations. Just ensure the vehicle has seat belts and good a/c if that is a priority for you, the A/C was not very good so the van was very hot and then our driver had vehicle trouble on night 3 of our trip (Shahid - Horizon van) so he needed to take his van into the shop but we immediately had a new driver without any delays or effort on our part and the A/C in the new drivers van was great (Akash - Guardian Angel Van). Both drivers were friendly and helpful. During our trip she communicated with us very well and ensured we arrived where we needed to and were happy with the accommodations. You must book with Sanguine Kerala to ensure a smooth trip, stays at the best places, and that you don’t miss out on anything!
