This was the best tour I had taken on my recent cruise from Dubai to Singapore. Peter promptly answered all my e-mails and sent pictures of our houseboat tour. We were met at the port by Peter and his father and given a beautiful flower lei. We were driven in comfortable air conditioned van to the backwaters. The houseboat was lovely.We had a modern bathroom aboard and cushy seating areas. The cook served us nice cold mango drinks and we began our 4 hour tour of the peaceful backwaters. A tasty meal was prepared in the kitchen which everyone enjoyed. Chicken, fish and vegetables were part of the menu along with delicious refreshing fruit to end the meal. All had a great time.thanks Peter for a job well done

We've booked a 1,5 week tour through Kerala from home and everything has been very easy ever since. When Peter prepared our travel itinerary he suggested the route (we knew where we wanted to go) and suggested places to stay. The route was beautiful, the driver (Simon) is a very trustworthy and safe driver and kind person and the places where we stayed we'd never have found ourselves and where wonderful.

Peter and co are a great team, with good ideas and professional staff and communication (which is a very pleasant skill in India :-). They specialize in Kerala, which shows when they come up with travel suggestions. They do day trips as well as longer travel arrangements.

Without a doubt we'd book a new trip with him again, if only he did more than Kerala.

Our trip was seamlessly organised, and everyone we came in contact with, from Peter (who is based in the office and always responded to emails quickly), to the drivers and staff at the hotels that Carnival picked for us were fantastic. Our 10 day itinerary included stays in Kochi, Munnar, Thekkady and Varkala. All the hotels we stayed in were perfect - small, spotlessly clean and very friendly. We will be recommending Carnival to any of our friends and family travelling to South India...

If you're staying in Fort Kochi and you want to go somewhere else in Kerala, or India, or possibly anywhere on the planet, go and see Charles at Carnival Tours. We'd been in email contact from home, but it was a pleasure to meet him when we arrived in Fort Kochi.
Nothing fazes Charles; whatever you ask for, your request is met with a broad smile, good advice and "No problem". A car and driver to take us to the Elephant Training Camp? No problem. A car and driver to take us to Varkala at the end of the week? No problem. Charles also booked us a Kerala Backwaters trip, organised our train trip to Kannur, right down to the seat numbers and provided us with the nicest chap you could hope to meet, to drive us to Munnar and the tea plantations, stay overnight and drive us back the next day. His name is Joseph and if you want a good driver and good company, tell Charles you'd like Joseph to drive you.
We thought travel within Kerala might be fraught and tricky. With Charles organising things, nothing was ever a problem.

Carnival tours saved us by finding the last 2 tickets to Mysore from Kochi. It did involve having to take a 45 min tuk-tuk into the middle of nowhere, but he gave extremely detailed instructions that ensured that we didn't miss the bus. Service was on another level to anything else we received in India!
