1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The cycling around Munnar , which was very challenging on terms of hill and road conditions, but so exciting and interesting.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Take plenty changes of cycling clothes as it is quite hard to get things washed and dried. You can buy an indian SIM card for your phone for 5 at the airport, and save on phone bills. Try to avoid using plastic water bottles as these end up littering the roadside and backwaters - most places offer clean filtered water if you ask for it. I took my own saddle .

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The home stays were run by locals , and they really need tourist support. Many were making efforts to reduce environmental impact by cutting down on plastic waste etc. Our local guide company, also tries to avoid plastic waste by providing metal drinking bottles and refilling from a large water store.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Absolutely brilliant! Our guides were fantastic, especially Roger who led the cycling. Nothing was too much trouble, we were treated like royalty. The guides thought of everything, and were so accommodating.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

From start to finish, we had a ball! Vipin and Rodger were great guides, full of encouragement and knowledge about all things Indian. Deepu was a very safe driver and all 3 had a great rapport with each other. Cycling was challenging at times, but very enjoyable and we were able to go at our own pace. Food and accomodation were first class and no ' delhi belly' for either of us throughout the whole trip. The holiday company are a company I will definitely use again and recommend to others. Please pass on my thanks to the company

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Dont hesitate, book it!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

All hotels/camps seemed locally owned and I am happy to support that.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent, first class! This is up there in our top 1 or 2 trips of our life and we have travelled a fair bit over the years.
