    Right from take off from Mumbai thro' Indigo to Cochin till the time of our landing back in Mumbai from Cochin, we had a very pleasant, hassle free tour. Our Stay in Ernakulam at Dunes and our Stay in Birds Valley Resorts in Munnar and our sight seeing trips in and around Munnar as well as Cochin including Athirapaaly water Falls, Fort Cochin, Jews Town, Lulu Mall, Boat Ride at Munnar, Elephant Ride and Jungle Jeep safari, a bit of Shopping everything was well organized and assisted by T.P and their counterparts. Tasneem at Mumbai and Yogesh at Cochin are still remembered by us for their meticulous care and planning. Our visit to Mannarsala Nagaraja Temple also remains ever green in our minds. We really cherished each and every moment we were entertained by T.P We will definitely not only recommend Tasneem and T.P to our friends and relatives but also make the best use of their services anytime we require in future. Thanks a lot Mrs Tasneem and thanks to you also Yogesh... ...more
