This was my first trip to India in 28 years and my wife's first trip ever. Needless to say neither one of us knew what to expect. Working with Peter from Carnival Tours made the experience so relaxing and carefree. He was prompt, detailed and organized in his responses to our questions prior to the trip. Peter put together an itinerary that took us from Kochi to Munnar (2 nights in a resort), Thekkady (1 night in a resort), Alleppey (1 night on a houseboat) and back to Kochi (1/2 day sightseeing). We loved the itinerary and the activities that were setup for us! Furthermore the accommodations that Peter arranged were excellent. He met us at the start of our tour as well as at the end. And he contacted us during the tour to make sure we were happy. Also our driver, Shojan (sp?) was excellent and very accommodating. He didn't mind us requesting frequent stops to take pictures, to buy snacks etc. He truly cared that our experience was a good one, and asked us for feedback every day. If you're thinking of visiting Kerala you really should consider using Carnival to get the best out of your visit.

In January 2015 we made a 2days-trip from Cochi to Munnar. The communication and arrangement with Carnival Tours was straightforward and well customised. We had a safe driver, he was professional and very friendly. Our hotel the " Kaivalayam Retreat" was a piece of heaven in a breathtaking landscape.Thank you for a wonderful experience in the beautiful hills of Munnar.

I contacted Carnival Tours only 1 week before going to Cochin. They were able to organize a boat for an afternoon cruise in the backwaters for us without problems. they picked us up at our hotel, the food and the drivers on the boat were fantastic. It was a wonderful way to see the backwaters. I would definitely recommend Carnival Tours.

We were in Cochin as part of a long cruise, and prefer to use local tour operators where possible than take the cruise company tours. Communication with Carnival Tours was easy, and they responded quickly to emails. The organisation was great - we hired a driver and tour guide for a day. They were waiting for us when we docked, and we then had a half day's tour of the local area. This was much more personable than the large cruise tours, and we were able to dictate where and when we wanted to go. The driver and guide were great. Thank you - we managed to see and experience a lot in the short space of time we had. Thoroughly recommended.

My spouse and I booked a trip to Munnar / Thekkady through Carnival, and our experience was overall a very happy one. Our driver Babu was fantastic: we felt as safe as one can feel on those crazy Indian roads, he spoke English very well, and overall he took great care of us. The accommodations were great, and Babu's restaurant recommendations were excellent. I wish we could have spent an extra day in Thekkady as it seemed like there was a lot to do there and we ended up just doing some tourist trap stuff, but this doesn't reflect on Carnival Tours as our schedule was really the limiting factor. Booking the trip was pretty hassle-free and Peter always responded promptly to our emails. We would definitely work with them again!
