review 2 Oct 2017

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

We think of the entire tour as being Swallows and Amazons, in India, by bicycle. The sheer diversity and the immediacy of exposure to the people and landscape, and (for us), the exotic birdlife, made this a complete adventure. One can't experience all of that through a car window.

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

Throw yourself into the whole thing but don't over-exhaust yourself in the early days of cycling.

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

Our tour operator has the interests of Kerala, and its people, at heart and seeing it all by bicycle minimised our environmental impact. We cycled, we looked, we walked and we bought a few things that re grown or made by local people.

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

The best holiday we have ever been on.

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

Cycling through the tea plantations, sleeping and awaking on the houseboat in the backwaters, stand up early in the morning to listen to birds or the elephants trumpeting far in the valley.

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

Just relax and enjoy the color of the nature surrounding you while you cycle, listen to the many birds' songs, smell the cardammon or the other fragrances on the way

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

Yes

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

review 7 Mar 2014

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

Cycling and trekking through the tea plantations at Munnar.

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

Don't bother with the cycling UP to Munnar (difficult, unsafe and unpleasant).

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

Contributed to the economy - not sure about reducing environmental impacts. Did celebrate conservation on wildlife.

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

Enjoyable for sure but would have benefitted from some better planned days.
