"Thank you for arranging a fantastic trip. The logistics were smooth from start to finish, which allowed us to really enjoy the places we visited and the many spectacular birds we found with the expert help of the local guides. Sanu was exceptionally knowledgeable and dedicated to helping us find all of our target birds. We saw far more than I ever expected and we are still excited about how successful our trip turned out to be."
"Everything went perfectly from start to finish. We had an absolutely amazing time with a lovely choice of hotels and a varied programme of activities and excursions to enjoy. Our driver was so professional and really took brilliant care of us. The people and the food were wonderful but the highlight of the trip has to be the overnight stay on the Kerala houseboat where we felt like royalty with our own private crew."
We spent six days on a private tour round Kerala after attending a family wedding near Chennai. We were a bit apprehensive about our first trip to India, but from the very earliest planning stages we were hugely reassured by the advice and information Vimal gave us over the phone. The trip itself was amazing - great locations, beautiful scenery and a very helpful driver. Just wish we had longer!
We received warm and helpful hospitality throughout the tour, from the hotel staff and from Authentic India Tours. It was great to be met at the airport, taken on excursions and be looked after so well. Highlights of the tour included the tea plantation and museum visit in Munnar, the sunset cruise in Cochin, and seeing the Kerala backwaters by houseboat. I would recommend Authentic India Tours to anyone thinking of visiting Kerala.
