Upon reading about in love with kerala on this site, we set about emailing Kelly with our ideas. Within 24hrs, we had correspondence, and within 2 days we had an itinerary. We were very impressed with Kelly's promptness and attention to detail. Everything was so easy and the tour itself ran very smoothly. We had a lovely driver who spoke basic English which wasn't a problem but we couldn't have a conversation on the long trips. We were met the airport by our driver and Vinod (who runs the company with kelly). The tour took us from Cochin to munnar, kumily (including the tiger trail), varkala, kovalam, and a night on a houseboat. The accommodation was fantastic, all the hotels were very luxurious especially the annavisalam plantation and the Taj Vivante's. Vinod and Kelly experience the hotels beforehand and they pick out the best for their customers. Vinod himself took over the driving when our driver had a family problem towards the end of the trip. It was clear that Vinod was very passionate about the company he set up and he'll go above and beyond to help you have the best experiences and ultimately a memorable trip. We couldn't fault the company and urge everyone thinking of touring kerala to travel with in love with kerala.

Our trip was pretty much unplanned till the last minute due to busy schedule, after reading extensively over a night, we decided to contact a few tour operators for our one week trip in Kerala, with no idea what to begin with and the possible activities.
Kelly was very efficient, the only one who responded promptly and worked with me intensively few days before our trip. Her kind attention to details and requests was unbeatable! It was like communicating with a dear friend for advices, receiving all the care and attention that comes from the heart.
To assure us further, Vishnod, the partner in this fine company personally picked us up from the airport late at night to deliver us to a yoga ashram that has got no business with their company. He was there to pick us up few days later to start the tour with him. Professional, ethical, kind and helpful!
Our trip cannot be such a pleasant one without him accommodating us throughout the long drives, we actually went to 2 big cities, seen some beaches, got good Ayurvedic messages in Kovalam, beautiful houseboat with excellent service by Muthoot Houseboat for a serene night on the backwaters etc...
Last minute shopping requests, good and clean food, beautiful sea-view deluxe villa at Brunton Boatyard in Ford Cochin, city tour of the busy heart landers' districts in Trivandrum, museums, parks....very importantly, none of these was done in a hectic way, short easy tours, walk-abouts, comfortable clean new car which they upgraded for us free-of-charge, professional guide from the government was also arranged to give us an in depth insight to Fort Cochin....
In short, everything was perfect, prices was reasonable, the care this company gave was faultless...
We are so happy to have engaged their services for our precious one week break. With this knowledge of having a trustworthy tour operator and friend in India, we will be organizing a 2-3 weeks tour next year with family!
This comment is written from the heart and a big thank you to Kelly and Vishnod!

We booked through 'In Love With Kerala' for a 11 day tour and at the end of the tour we actually fell in love with Kerala. What stands out as far as the company is concerned is the promptness. From the time we contacted Kelly, she took care of the itineary, the rooms according to our budget.
We were received at the airport by Vinod. We were driven around in a brand new Verito and the best part of our journey was spent with our driver Jerry. An absolute sweetheart, Jerry was more than wiling to take us to any place desired and was forthcoming in his details of the culture in Kerala. Vinod was our driver in the second half from Alleppey.
Worth booking through this company and cheers for a smiling and on time service by Kelly, Vinod and Jerry. Definitely recommended for all travelling to Kerala.

After looking at Tripadvisor, we decided to contact "In Love with Kerala" and we got an immediate response from Kelly with a suggested itinerary and costings. She suggested what was possible in 8 days and recommended hotels and factored in travel times etc.
We had to change some plans, but Kelly adjusted the schedule without any issues.
When we arrived at the airport, we were met by the driver and a brand new car; he was extremely informative and we felt in very good hands for the entire trip. We did have 2 drivers over the 8 days, and we were immensely impressed by both drivers. We were told by both drivers that they would not recommend any shops etc unless we explicitly asked just in case there was any implication of them getting kickbacks. We appreciated them being very upfront and honest as I mentioned before felt in good hands.
I cannot say enough good things about the company and the drivers; the tours etc that we did were as promised, the drivers were on time and very responsible and reliable, and we really felt well taken care of.
I would say that the drivers are not available 24hrs and there was a schedule of trips so that if we did want to do extra it would cost extra (which was fine with us and Kelly had advised us of all of this upfront) so this is slightly different to just hiring a car and driver. I would also say that the drivers were very informative and acted as tour guides which you won't get at other companies.
I highly recommend this company and their staff.
