Previously known as Cochin, Kochi is the second biggest city of Kerala state. Situated in Ernakulam district, the city is one of the important seaports of India. Often referred to as the Gateway to Kerala, the picturesque city is flanked on its western side by the Arabian Sea and the Western Ghats on eastern side. Kochi holiday packages cover this historic city, which once had connections with Arabs, British, Chinese, Dutch and Portuguese. A Cochin tour reveals that despite being a fast growing city, it maintains its colonial heritage and age old tradition along with modernity. Even today, you can get a glimpse of the bygone era during a holiday in Cochin...[+] More
1.The tour booked was good, the airport pick up and the taxi service prompt.
2.The effort taken by you to reschedule our booking on 20th / 21st Feb (strike) is commendable. It is highly appreciated. Good work mate.
3.The schedule was relaxed and we enjoyed our vacations (mostly).
4.The eagerness of Make My Trip executives to assist was a great +ve point.
5.The booking process / responses to queries was seamless and we appreciate this.
1.Issac Residency in Munnar is a strictly average property. Please work out better deals for hotels in Munnar.
2.The taxi driver booked for us did not understand Hindi or English, for us who are exploring a new place the communication becomes important to find out places to eat / places to visit etc. The driver was not interested to earn any extra money by taking us around or by helping us explore the places. The unwillingness to help us was very strange. The language stuff should be sorted out before making the booking.
The holiday went extremely well with no issues or problems. We were very happy with the houseboat company that you provided us with, it was far better than the one we used last January and would definitely recommend the company to others. The car drivers were both good although Robin could not speak much English: we had hoped for a driver who we could communicate with better. We had to ask Hari to slow down a couple of times as it seemed like he was in a race to get to the various destinations.
Beaumonde the Fern in Cochin was still as good as before and the Leela Kovalam exceeds expectations as usual.
I know there was some confusion for my brother's trip to Mysore and Ooty with regards to the driver and pickup. Unfortunately we were given the wrong number for the driver and there was confusion about who the driver actually was. That said, my brother has mentioned their driver was excellent, very safe on the mountain roads and was very communicable. They loved both hotels and would absolutely recommend them to others.
On a personal note, I would like to say thank you for helping to organize our trip, being available for our calls and for assisting my friends with their trips. I'm sure we'll be in touch again for our next India vacation and recommending you to assist people coming to visit India.
