Backwater cruise in a shaded canoe boat. This will offer you a special experience. This trip would be superb for those who are willing to be away from sound and noises of busy life.. We operate this cruise in a calm and quiet area where you can know about the insides of village.The trip starts on early morning 6:30 ans end on evening 3:30 and it includes breakfast and lunch for the day and you can enjoy activities like feeding and bathing elephant.

We booked 8 days with Stanley - 2 nights at Jasmine Villa, 4 nights at the Backwaters Farm Stay and 1 night in Munnar. Stanley and his wife Jasmine are the hosts at Jasmine Villa where Jasmine's breakfasts and dinner (included in the price) are excellent. Bring some toiletries just in case these aren't provided. We were very happy with... More

I booked the Green Magic tour before we left the UK as I wanted to book one trip to mix with others. The communication with the office was excellent. On arrival in Cochin we went in the day before to confirm and pay and had Rs2000 left to pay on the day. We found out that instead of this being... More

Stanley organised a backwater trip and a trip to Munnar. Both times the organisation was superb, the guides informative and friendly. Too often as a solo traveller agents overcharge you but Stanley was exceptional.

We enjoyed the 1 night Munnar tour. Driver and guide Johnson was great. Also Robin at the guest house was hospitable. Would recommend if in the Kochi area.

We stumbled across Stanely Wilson's office in Cochin and are so glad we did. He arranged the most suberb two days at the Green Magic Guest House high up in the hills near Munner. The view take your breath away and makes the 4 hour journey well worth it. We found the visit to the Spice Farm really informative, but... More

I am sorry to begin with. This review is coming in rather late, but better late than never. Stanley was recommended by Mr.Walton (owner Walton's Homestay) for a Munnar and houseboat tour. In a nutshell he is unbeatable for price and quality. Our driver and guide Justin, a complacent and a rather gathered man , needs no more description. Very... More

Travelling on my own I was looking to go for a couple of days to Munnar. I asked around a couple of places and none would do anything for 1 person; except Wilsons. He worked out an option for one and said he'd look out if there was anyone he could get to join my trip. And he succeeded! I... More

Tour includes one night's accom in a home stay with a magnificent view of the tea estates. I recommend to stay an extra night at least as this area is beautiful. Very nice hilly drive up to the area. Great food in the homestay (especially if Das is the cook!). Good value.

I usally don't do tours, but because of a lack of time, I decided to take the 2-days-Munnar tour. Except for some clouds there was really nothing I can think of that was wrong in this tour. Our guide, Justin, knows a lot of stuff about a lot of stuff, and he was a great guy, and a flexible guide.... More

We booked a one-day trip to Munnar because we didn't have enough time to spend in the resort itself but we still wanted to visit. We were two couples - the young couple and the wife's parents. It was extremely efficient and reliable; we had booked two days in advance, and it was all perfectly and smoothly arranged by the... More
