The tour was very well planned and manged and we have decided to be back again to this wonderful place – Review on 30 April, 2015
Organised the tree house stay and houseboat which went perfectly. However, I would like to reserve special praise for our driver, Mr Sujith. He was outstanding. He was so knowledgabnle about the local area and showed us some great little spots away from the tourist trail as we were travelling to our destinations. If you book a trip with the guys at iris holidays, which I will be doing again,I would wholeheartedly recommend requesting Mr Sujith- Review on 8 April, 2015
The hotels/ resorts that were booked for us were great. Most were off the tourist trail, so if you want to be in the mix of it all, it’s best to make it clear that is your preference. However, for us, we enjoyed being in more peaceful surroundings without being hassled to buy souvenirs- Review on 7 April 2015
All the hotels in Kerala were just great, with a special mention of Deshadan Mountain Resort in Munnar for the beautiful honeymoon bed and candlelight dinner, the tree house in Periyar with views on lion monkeys and different birds, the Palm Tree Heritage in Varkala at the beautiful beach and Over the Hill Resort in Poovar who went to buy lobsters at the fish market and cooked them to perfection. The house boat with Pickadly was beyond imagination, just fabulous- Review on 30 March 2015
