I contacted Peter at Carnival only a week before I was arriving into Kerala, very quickly we agreed by email a personalised itinerary with 3 days in Munnar and 2 in Allerpey, and then a trip to Kovalam. Peter took care of all my requirements, it couldn't have been easier!

As soon as I arrived into Kochi, Peter was there to meet me, and introduced me to my guide and driver, and minutes later I was on my way to Munnar.

With a stay in a beautiful boutique hotel for one night, a trek through the beautiful hills of Munnar upto a nature Eco-resort, and then a few days on a house boat in Allepey.

I understand why people call Kerala, God's Own Land!

I will come back to Kerala, and have no hesitation to contact Peter @ Carnival again.

Our group of 8 was in Kochi for one day on a cruise and contacted Peter for advice for an inclusive tour for the day. He was prompt in his reply, clear as to sights to see and the price was very reasonable. Our guide and van were on the dock awaiting us, our guide was excellent and the day was great.

We have no complaints at all and would recommend his company to all.

My husband and I planned an impromptu trip to Kerela and were so happy we chose Carnival just two weeks before we departed. I found them on TripAdvisor, and within literally minutes of writing on their website, I received an email from Peter. He was simply amazing in quickly putting together an itinerary for us (accomodating all my requests and endless questions). We paid by credit card and that was one simple phonecall from Peter.

As for the trip itself, we spent 2 days at Munnar at a treehouse in Kaivalyam retreat, 1 day at a deluxe houseboat in Alleppey and half-day city tour of Kochi. Our driver Simon was outstanding...profession, polite, drove safely, was plasant to chat with and full of information and best of all took very good care of us. We arrived Kochi at 7am and both Peter and Simon came to pick us from the airport, which was a very nice gesture. Both the treehouse and houseboat were magical experiences and I can't thank Peter enough for suggesting both those places!

I highly recommend Carnival Tours for travel within Kerela...you get your money's worth and much more!

Superb, prompt service given by Peter and his team - we could not fault his recommended itinerary, choice of hotel/houseboats and selection of a safe driver.

We stayed in a luxury houseboat for two nights organised by Peter - the quality of the houseboat was impeccable, the food was amazing and the three-man crew were an absolute delight to be with. Perfect for the romantic getaway.

Peter was incredibly patient dealing with my many emails trying to plan the first part of our trip to Kerala but we got there in the end. He was quick to respond to emails and understood exactly what I wanted. Unbeknown to me, my husband also emailed explaining that it was our silver wedding anniversary and Peter arranged a lovely cake and 'special' treatment for the night on our houseboat - unexpected and very kind. Our driver was very good, as was Tommy our guide round Fort Cochin. All in all, first class. I would highly recommend Peter and Carnival Tours
