The whole arrangements of the Kerala tour were reasonable and well-organized. The guides can adjust the itinerary in time after listening to the opinions of tour members when they meet special circumstances. What we experienced and visited were as same as the arrangements wrote online. All the guides and the drivers offered excellent services. We were very satisfied with this trip.

All local guides were very dedicated. I like the tour guide in Kochi best! He was humorous and informative, and his introduction to Chinese-Style Fishing Nets was also very interesting!
The journey was full of joy! The drivers were also extremely helpful. The route arrangement was also well-pleasing! The hotel was nice. I just don’t like curry personally... but the buffet was pretty good! The members in our group could get along very harmoniously. This 13 days Kerala tour left me very good memories!

Overall, the 10 days Kerala trip to Kochi, Munnar, Periyar, Alappuzha, Kovalam and Trivandrum was good.
We visited beautiful Mattancherry Palace, St Francis Church and saw birds and butterflies at the Eravikulam National Park. The scenery of the Periyar Lake was picturesque and we spent 1-hour cruising on it. A houseboat cruise on the Kerala backwater was interesting and enjoyable.
Kovalam had many beaches and we took special herbal oil massage there. The trip would be perfect if there were no two rainy days. It was not convenient for us to visit the outdoor scenic spots....More

We were not disappointed from our first moments in Kochi until we left Trivandrum. All the details were thoughtfully taken care of! We had flexibility with every city, and all of our experiences were absolutely wonderful. The guides were professional and outstanding English speakers. They were very familiar with local customs and every attraction. They can solve the problems in the journey quickly and professionally. We all appreciated them very much. We will travel with Agate Travel again in the future.

In particular, I would like to commend our Alappuzha tour guide for being responsible, patient and meticulous. I was very satisfied with the overall schedule and accommodation arrangement! The smooth and safe driving was very reassuring! All in all, we had a great impression of this Kerala tour.

Our guide in Kochi was a super fun young guy who always held a patient attitude towards us. He told us so many interesting facts about this fascinating state - Kerala.
In addition to the magnificent palace, we also got a houseboat cruise on the backwater, very easy and comfortable. The beach tour with a coffee break was a successful ending for our 10-day Kerala tour!
Generally speaking, Kerala should not to be missed and go to explore around those gorgeous natural areas. PS: you guys should avoid the summer season from April and mid-June because of the soaring temperature of around 95F........More

Our 12-day Kerala tour from Bangalore was amazing in terms of guides’ interesting explanations, reasonable schedule, cozy hotels & delicious meals and excellent driving skills. We were familiar with the Taj Mahal in Agra, but not so familiar with Kerala. Its attractions were totally different from other Indian cities.
Kerala faces the Indian Ocean and has the city known as the “Venice of the East” - Alappuzha. We enjoyed ourselves on the beaches and charming backwater. Although it was not developed enough, the Indian people here were very satisfied. They lived a casual and happy life!...More

It was a blissful group tour with a professional and credible travel team!
Our itinerary of this Kerala tour was well arranged and we actually appreciated lots of natural scenery and unique animals in Eravikulam National Park.
The boat house cruise was leisurely and we indulged in the pleasures without stop!

We had 3 guides in our 7-day Kerala tour from Kochi to Alappuzha. The Kochi guide was talkative and responsible; Munnar guide was competent to organize our schedule in an orderly way; the Periyar guide was quite humorous to share a lot of facts about Periyar Tiger Reserve and local villages. Each of them gave us a pleasure time and we were very satisfied with Agate’s wonderful arrangements!
