I have no words to describe the beauty of Kerala. We went for a honeymoon in Kerala last September and it was raining but the sights looked so beautiful in the rain. Alleppey and Munnar were really stunning with so much greenery. Houseboat cruise was the excellent part of our trip and when it was raining, it was so pretty to watch the lake and its surroundings. Homestay where we stayed in Alleppey was also amidst lush greenery and I have never experienced such a good hospitality anywhere before. It was too cold in Munnar and the roads were slippery too and hence trekking to the top of the hills was too risky. Food was spicy but tasty especially non-vegetarian items. I was not fond of fish before but the fish curry I tasted there made me an admirer of it. Kovalam is just like any other beach, nothing special I found there but the attractions in Trivandrum were quite different. It was a relaxed and refreshing journey and there was no hurry-burry and delay in anything. Nice driver and professional guide, good staff at the hotels and homestays and wonderful serenity everywhere.

Big thanks to the team for making our honeymoon a memorable one. Such a well-planned itinerary with all the arrangements done so good. We were transferred to Munnar, the drive was a scenic ride with the view of the tea estate, spice plantation and the Valara Falls. There are quite a lot of spots which you can visit here, for us the best was our visit to Jungle Honey Bee Nest, Mattupetty Dam, and Echo Point. Our boat ride at the Periyar Lake was really great. You will find a lot of honeymooners and vacationers here. Another great highlight of our trip was our unique cruise along the lagoons. Wow! The sunset was such a beautiful sight; we never saw the sun so huge before, it was really beautiful. We also visited few other beaches like the Varkala Beach, Kovalam and Alleppey Beach. Temples, art galleries, and museum visit were also great. We loved it totally.

I along with my wife went on this honeymoon trip just after two days of our marriage in April 2017. We went through Thrillophilia who suggested this package for us. The package was very decent with all the things included for seven days. Being from North India, this was our first-time visit to the south and it was really great. The accommodation was really great, we loved the way they have made arrangements for us at the houseboat at Alleppey. Cruising along the lake and lagoons was really great; we also enjoyed the sunset together. Food I would say was average as this was our very first time tasting south Indian dishes. There are a lot of places which we explored like Cinema Shooting Point, Eravikulam National Park, Anamudi Peak and also the spice plantation.

Our Kerala trip was amazing. Green landscapes, tea estates, small waterfalls, beaches, houseboats, tasty home-made food, Mohiniyattam and Kathakali, toddy and Onam Sadya- these were the factors that surprised me throughout our honeymoon tour of Kerala. It was their festival time, Onam and everywhere, we saw people wearing white colour saree and mundu. It was a pretty sight to watch. Our Onam Sadya (the special meals) was at the homestay in Alleppey and it was so tasty. Enjoying each attraction with a lot of natives was a great experience for us.

I and my wife went for a Kerala tour on our first wedding anniversary and we thought to take a second honeymoon. When I saw the package, I thought the prices were high but the timely approach and fast responses from the organizers changed my mind. They were so prompt and friendly and the package was worth it. Exceptional quality of food, accommodation and transportation made the package so pleasing and delightful.
