In India, my husband and I spent 6 days in Kerala and 3 days in the Delhi/Agra region. We are so happy that we spent the majority of our time in India in Kerala. I have fallen in love with it via this tour. Delhi and the surrounding cities were lackluster. We didn't find much joy in the Taj Mahal after we visited Kerala, because we knew India had so much better to offer.
The five days of this tour were astounding. View after view after view. The scenery was everything! Nimisha, the business owner who organises the tour for you is really friendly and made the whole experience seamless. She checked in with us regularly before and during our tour. She also helped us to organise other travels outside of the tour (we needed an extra night at a hotel because we landed late at night and Nimisha facilitated the whole thing).
Our driver, Mr Rajesh was a very kind man and facilitated a relaxing atmosphere throughout the trip. If we wanted to go shopping, or try certain foods he was able to find great places. If we wanted to stop the car to take in the scenes, we were able to. At first, he was very quiet but after we requested more commentary, he really engaged us with his wealth of knowledge. So don't be afraid to speak up if you want more or less commentary. Also, the fact that we had a local driver, protected us from a lot of harassment from vendors and he was able to do the talking if we needed help.
A lot of the day is spent driving because the state of Kerala is huge and you really cover a lot of distance, but the days are balanced with the afternoons packed with activities or rest and relaxation (your choice). The scenery along the whole trip is breathtaking- especially when you leave Munnar to travel to Thekkady.
The houseboat experience was phenomenal. One of the best travel experiences of my life. The scenery and having a whole boat to yourselves were incredible.
Overall, we had a great time. We are very well seasoned travelers and this gets our recommendation. We will definitely come back to Kerala.
