2007

We both absolutely love the whole holiday. Very well arranged. All accommodation higher standards than we expected except Green Villa.

Just to let you know that the trip went well. Thank you for your organisation and advice. We will recommend to others. Wherever we went, the staff were helpful and seem to have pride in their work. In its own way, we found Surya Samudra to be the most enjoyable hotel.

A really enjoyable adventure-cum holiday. Sanil was an excellent driver and companion, he looked after us extremely well and has a great sense of humour. From the scores you can tell we enjoyed ourselves.

We were very impressed with Mr Daniel and the Companion Holidays team. He called us to make sure everything was OK and then again to confirm pick up times. The Hindustan Beach Retreat at Varkala was a really good recommendation. Just what we were looking for - thank you.

You put together a very successful itinerary. Nothing went wrong and we felt totally at ease. Lovely hotels, delicious food, smiling people and all in all a hugely enjoyable two weeks.

We have had a simply wonderful holiday in Kerala. A well-balanced itinerary with lots of variety, always in superb accommodation. The food has been unbeatable - as vegetarians we have never enjoyed such a magnificent choice. The hotels, guest houses and homestays have all been brilliant. Many thanks for your attention to detail in all the planning and helpful information supplied to us.

Gary, Both Helen and myself would like to that all at Kerala Connections and Companion Holidays for the best holiday of our lives. Initially allowing us to select our own itinerary and booking our own flights we were a little worried things might go wrong particularly as we had never been to India before.
Nothing could have been further from the truth. From the moment we landed we were treated like royalty and nothing was too much trouble.
Mr Kumar was attentive without being intrusive checking with us virtually every day through our driver, Dipeesh, who was amazing. We became firm friends throughout our travels together and we never felt pressured or ill at ease.
We had selected a number of boutique guesthouses and homestays in order to sample a variety of experiences and not one of them disappointed. Our first stop was The Secret Garden where Thora and her staff manage a beautiful oasis of tranquillity and luxury in Fort Cochin. The Mundackal Homestay introduced us to Jose & Daisy, a very pleasant and friendly couple who were only too happy to give cookery lessons and show us around their beautiful rubber plantation. Up into the hills and the Olive Brook outside Munnar is as gorgeous as the views it provides of the surrounding countryside.
Aanavilasam near Thekkady and the welcome we got from Pirkko Paxton and her husband John made us feel like we were visiting old friends rather than just guests in a hotel. The rooms were literally breathtaking, the food was incredible and the service, impeccable.
The houseboat arranged through Lakes & Lagoons featured Captain Mohan, Sebastian & Johnny the chef, all of whom were friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about the beautiful sights we were to encounter.
Finally at A Beach Symphony, Jan & Christel Arryn and their staff arranged everything to allow us to squeeze the last romantic moments out of our holiday in the most idyllic surroundings you could possibly imagine before we had to tear ourselves away to return home.
Seriously, I did harbour reservations about using a company who wanted the money up front and who then subcontracted to local service provider, but my worries melted away from day one and I would happily recommend your company and services to all my friends without hesitation. With your help our first taste of India was amazing. Thank you all.
