I had a good trip to the heavenly forests of Dandeli and I saw a lot of beautiful birds which are endemic to the western ghats. Well organised trip (1 day at OMH and 2 days Dandeli) but would require some more fine tuning of itinerary . I would recommend this tour especially for people who have not done birding in the western ghats👍👍 I believe Oct-Dec is the best time to visit.

I did this birding trip a few days back and I had a nice experience. Very responsive and responsible tour operator who responds to all queries and does prompt follow ups. During the initial organising period, there were a few hiccups in back and forth changes in plans. However that says that they genuinely take efforts to give proper experience. On the ground, the local tour partner who they partnered with had promised something but delivered something else. So a kind advice as to make appropriate partnerships in future.

When we planned to go to Coorg, I left the planning, booking, etc everything to keyterns, as they have arranged a couple of trips for us before, and we are quite happy with our experience. Every single nuance was taken care of thoughtfully, like which place would be the best to stay, (as we travel with young children and elderly parents), where food would be good, you name it. Keyterns is the best at planning and executing it well. They understand my family's needs and plan accordingly.
