      Highlights of Kerala with Antony
      I booked the 4 day tour of Kerala through Viator. Antony was our driver for the tour and he was outstanding! Antony was very professional and polite and safely got us all around Kerala. We asked a million questions and he answered them without hesitation. The lush scenery was our favorite part of the trip. The accommodation at Lake N Hill was sufficient. Antony took us to a great place for dinner 2 nights after we talked about missing eating beef while in India. The beef fry with paratha was amazing! The houseboat experience was nice, with a friendly staff. We were slightly disappointed that we docked for the night at the same place we took off from, but it was nice to have shore power there so the AC worked while we slept. The boat was well equipped for the two of us and the meals were great! Antony totally made our trip though! He went out of his way to make us comfortable. I would highly recommend this tour with Antony as a driver!

      Family Pilgrimage and Short Holiday
      Our private family pilgrimage and a short holiday starting from Trichi, Vellankanni, Coimbatore and Kochi was handled by Arun Dev of Iris Holidays. He was in daily contact with me and all checkin and checkout at all the hotels went smoothly. The highlight of our trip was the overnight stay at Blue Jelly Ultra Luxury Houseboat. The food was varied and delicious. The staff who attended to us were friendly and polite. The unexpected welcome given by Mr Isac, Arun and the staff of Iris Holidays at their office was much appreciated by my family. Would definitely recommend Iris Holidays to my friends.

      My First Visit to Kerala
      When i planed to visit Kerala, i had a lot of Questions about Stay, Site Seeing, Travelling and i checked lot of Packages provided by various Agents, but when i visited Kerala Tourism Website ther i found Iris Holidays who are registered and Approved by Kerala Tourism Department. I had contacted them through mail and Mr. Kannan from Iris Holidays helped me with Customised Tour Package according to my Flight Timings. Mr. Kannan had provided me the quotation with resonable prices with good itternity facilities. They had booked the best hotel for staying in Cochin and Resort in Munnar and Houseboat in Alleppy They alocated Mr. Lallan as my Tourist Guide and car Driver, he is Very Experienced and Good human being, well know all the places. His Driving in the Ghat Road with all safety measures made me tension relief. I will suggest M/s. Iris Holidays for Booking a package in Kerala.

    We are a group of 16 senior citizens from Mumbai. Iris Holidays planned an unforgettable trip of 14 days for us. The planning and execution by Mr George of Iris was excellent. His personal care was unmatching.

    Mr Ratheesh, our driver was an excellent driver. Our safety was his prime concern. Mr Dhanoop, his assistant took care of our baggage and personal needs. Both are good assets to Iris.

    The hotels were one better than the other. Marvellous selection by Mr George.

    Overall an “UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE”.
