    Wonderfull experience with Iris Travels. The booking,Customer support were smooth and fast. Hotels were of premium category expect houseboat which let us down,we were provided deluxe boat in which ac timings were fixed (should have communicated earlier).we would have opted premium ones if known earlier.Also the water inside the Houseboat was muddy hence we did not take bath. Comming to the transportation part, it was amazing part since Senu(Driver) was very friendly,polite,helpful great driving skills. Would recommend to anyone anytime. Overrall wonderfull experience in this kerala trip (4N/5D) apart from some small things(houseboat related). Cheers ,Iris Travels.

    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”.
