house boat in kumarakom back waters vembrand river in kumarakom

About Kumarakom: In 1878, the marshy mangrove on the bank of the Vembanad Lake was cleared and replaced by coconut plantations. The person in the wake of this maneuver was one George Alfred Baker of Essex who had arrived in India sixty years earlier to take up missionary work in Kottayam. The Englishman was so awestruck by the splendor of Kumarakom that he settled here and made Kumarakom his abode. Just 12 km from Kottayam, this exclusive backwater destination sited on the banks of the Vembanad lake is considered the gateway to the backwaters of Kuttanad. The flourishing pastures and the countryside life are interspersed with the beautiful Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary. Stretched across 14 acres, the bird sanctuary is a desired haven of migratory birds and a bird lover’s paradise. Teals, egrets, darters, herons, waterfowl, cuckoo, wild duck and migratory birds like the Siberian stork that live there in teams and are an enthrallment for guests.

During our trip, I got sick and we had to reschedule our tour (he called everyday to check on my condition and assigned someone to be 24hrs with us to assist us). Mr. Gupta is a great person and helped us at every moment. We totally recommend \"Merry go Travels\" to everyone.

---- SPANISH---- Nos gusto mucho el servicio. El Sr. Gupta nos atendio muy bien en todo momento y en especial cuando me enferme estuvo siempre al pendiente y nos dio un servicio personal de primera. Si buscan una agencia en la cual confiar para que puedan disfrutar de su viaje al maximo, \"Merry go Travels\" es esa empresa. Gracias por todo lo que hicieron por nosotros!

--LENNART & KARIN from Sweden states:- Dear Mr Gupta It was certainly true. There was a smile to great us all the way through our journey in India. Everything worked very well, the drivers were there at impossible hours, tickets for the train were at the hotel. In Varanasi we were a bit worried about the ticket to Agra. But that was unnecessary, Sushil was there in time with our bookings for the sleeper. Many thanks to him. All the hotel staff received us with the smile you ordered. The guides answered our many questions and told us about the strange and beautiful things we saw. A very special thanks to Manoj who drove us safely the many kilometres through Rajastan in the impossible traffic and kept us hydrated and caffeinated all the time. The last day from Mandawa to Delhi was a 7 hours hard days work for him and then to pick us up at the hotel at 01:30 in the morning to deliver us at the airport, still with a smile, impressed us. Please let him know that we appreciated him very much. Thank you very much for you planning for our journey, we are very pleased and relived. ....... And I saw a TIGER...... Many many thanks.......

--Ms. Wencke Hovet from Newzealand writes- Dear Sir, I should have done it a long time ago, but I just want to say that I was very pleased with using you as our travel agency during our stay in India, and I am recommending you to my friends. The hotel in Jodhpur and in Varanasi had a standard I thought was too low, but it was my mistake in not changing it when I ordered the trip. I would especially like to let you know that I was very pleased with Jacki who was our driver. He was polite and drove in a very responisble manner. If everyone was driving like that, it would not be as many car accidents in India as it is. And if any of my friends need a driver in India, I will be sure to recommend him warmly. Thank you, Regards, Wencke Hovet.

All hotel bookings, taxis and transfers included, and felt completely safe all the way through. The communication was excellent and clear, and I was sure if I had any problems I could contact the company any time. Mr Saurabh Gupta, the director was always available and we had a chance to meet him in person before and after the tour. We visited Varanasi, Agra, Jaipur, Udaipur and Delhi, and very happy with the selection of monuments. Every day was a new Wow! Thanks for the trip for a lifetime.
