“Great tour of Kerala !”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

9 day tour with driver over xmas / new year period 2011 / 2012.
Family of 4 with 2 children aged 12 & 7.
Excellently organised with good suggested itinerary, but flexible enough to change it if we didn't fancy what was on offer on the day.
The hotels booked were all very good. The vehicle used was very clean and tidy.
Our driver was excellent. Quiet and unobtrusive most of the time, but happy to get more involved when prompted. He read us as a family very well, and seemed to guess our likes and dislikes very accurately. Was a pleasure to spend time with, which is quite important on a trip like this !
We had to change our flights and leave a day early, but this was met with efficiency and understanding. Hotels were changed and trips reorganised with no hassle or fuss.
I've never used anyone else in Kerala for this type of service, so couldn't compare with others, but Munnar really were excellent.

“Great trip, very good service and fabulous driver!”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

I travelled on Munnar Holidays' 6 night itinerary from Kochi to Trivandrum in December 2011. We had an initial problem with the driver who picked us up from Kochi airport in that he was very uncommunicative and the car was very dirty, however on arrival at our first hotel, we called Pradeep from Munnar Holidays and he arranged for a different driver and new car to pick us up the following morning, and from thereon the trip went without a hitch. Alex our driver was the nicest, most helpful and accommodating driver we could have wished for. 100% reliable, he couldn't do enough for us. The journeys between destinations - especially Kochi - Munnar and Alleppey - Kovalam are VERY long with quite bad roads, so be prepared. We booked the luxury package and whilst the first hotel in Kochi was fantastic (Tea Bungalow), the remaining hotels are not what I would class as luxury and service left a little bit to be desired. Kochi, the houseboat trip and the mountains between Munnar and Thekaddy were the highlight for me, but if I was to return, I would not include the tiger reserve in Thekaddy in the itinerary. The boat trip around Periyar lake is a waste of money as the wildlife were nowhere to be seen. To see anything worth looking at we were advised that you have to be there at 5am, which this itinerary does not allow for.

Overall I would definitely recommend Munnar Holidays as a way to view the highlights of Kerala. It was very well organised, and our dealings with both Pradeep and our driver, Alex were first class. Thank you for a great trip!

“Hiccup start but ended well!”
Reviewed 2 January 2012

We had a bad start with a bad driver and a car that has seen better days to put it politely. However when we spoke to the office and explained the situation it was quickly rectified and a new driver and car was sent and ready for the next morning. We were so lucky and had the most wonderful driver called Alex, I can't be more complimentary about Alex, he was excellent. Great driving, really genuinely nice person and exceptionally considerate. It was an real pleasure, he also offered useful information. We were sad to say goodbye. I hope his wife has had the baby and that Alex was able to be there. Would recommend using Munnar Holidays for trips in Kerala, we were very happy.

“One and only Munnar”
Reviewed 24 December 2011

What make the Hills station unique? Miles and miles of Tea Plantations? The Shola forests? The variety of flora and fauna?
The rivers? Water falls? Climate? The Magic of Mountain Gods? I DONT KNOW.
