Its excellent and the credit goes to the Driver Mr.Aghozh Kumar. Initially i was hesitant to travel by car as i know about the traffic conditions and the way the vehicles are driven. But Mr.Aghozh Kumar was a very good driver, he drove the car in a matured way, no over speeding or risky over taking. As a driver for 45 yrs, i observed the way he drove. the car just breezed thro. He drove with lot of patience. Further he was very gentle, he understood the guests taste/requirement and helped in many ways like good veg. htl, where we can shop etc. A gentleman to the core! the car was clean and he was always punctual..At the same time no unnecessary conversation. Drivers are the liuve wires of any operator and they can make positive as well as negative image. But Aghozh Kumar , i feel he is an asset to the Co. and you are lucky to have a driver with him. If i tour again, sure i will make a request for him.

It was a pleasant surprise to expereince the short trip org. by the operator: Great Escapes!

When i booked the package at the kerala State Tourism Dept. office at Chennai, i was informed that the tour will be organised by Great EscapesI was bit upset as i thought that the tour will be org. by KSTDC and wondered how this Operator will be. But Ms. Ramalakshmi at the reception assured me that that nothing to worry

As soon as i reached Ernakulam I was received by mr. Prajeesh Kumar, a pleasant gentleman and he explained about the tour and also introduced the driver Mr. Aghozh Kumar. In fact mr. Prajeesh kumar was in touch with me from the previous day!

The stay at the House Boat was a memorable one. The crew consisting of the Captain, Chef and the helper ( forgot their names) were very polite and obliged our requests with a pleasant smile. This boat looked much better and well furnished that the previous ones which i engaged.

The food served was vry delicious and the boat was very cleanwhich includes the toilet.

The stay at KTDC Samudra at Kovalam was excellent. its located at a vantage point from where you can have a beautiful view of the Arabian Sea (and in few minutes, one can reach the beach) with well maintained Grden as well as rock garden. The room was very clean, spacious. The beach, swimming pool and the lush green garden can be reached from the room. i enjoyed sipping bed coffee early morning. The breakfast was very good with wide varity of items both continental and local ones.The entire property was very well maintained and very clean and the staff were vry polite and courtious. its surprising that a Government run hotel can run much better than a private ones which includes a 5 star hotel in the same area!  The credit goes to the entire team right from top....

This short trip was organised as my friend from UK, heard so much about God's Own Country especially the House Boat. She was excited with everything and was really delighted and i felt relieved more than feeling happy.So the credit goes to the tour operator and sure will recomd Great Escapes to any one and there is a every likelyhood of organising a similar one with a Group-thats what my friend said! Keep it up
