    We had great time in Kerala. Everything was good. But yes for a suggestion, please make sure the driver should know Hindi or English. Driver was always on time, and tried his best to help to make us understand everything. Though, we were having language problems. Hotels were all great and had excellent services. Staff was very co-operative. And Munnar and Kovalam Hotels was our favorite. And Food was all excellent. Best memories in Kerala. Perfect service provided by Direct India Holidays, will give 9/10.
