Allover Kerala the people were fantastic and friendly

Tribes Overall:

No holiday is perfect but we had a really good time

Tribes Service:

The information about departure was not fully correct
Although we could not change the rupees after security they were still the currency to use in the departure lounge as the rip off exchange rate there was 60 rps to £1

Guides:

Variable is the best word. Their English with 2 exceptions was poor and their knowledge beyond the immediate environment was non existent. In other countries we are use to having in depth conversations with the guides

Social & Environmental Responsibility:

We saw a variety of situations and they were all excellent in their own way
