Superb
At the outset i would like to thank you guys for organizing this wonderful trip to Norther Kerala. Apart from a few drawbacks, which obviously happens in any trip, the whole experience has been awesome. I would particularly recommend the resorts in Wayanad and Thekkadi to your future customers also. The stay at Thekkadi was mind soothing and I must say the services and facilities are above par. You and your team have played a very good role in putting together a package to suit my very needs. Since I was looking to travel and see more places than staying in resorts, this trip has given me the opportunity to do so. Nelliyampathi in Palakkad was an absolute gem of a place one must visit. The places all over Wayanad and Munnar gives you the feeling of being in another world altogether. Nature - raw and undisturbed. I am adding few photographs which will tell you the tale themselves.
