Dear Arun, we had a great time on our holiday in February - March. South of India is incredible! Our holiday was made even more special due to our driver Sony. He is an excellent driver who takes safety highly, had cared for ua like his own parents and had incredible and fascinating knowledge about the country. He truly made our holiday special and we want Iris Holiday know that you have someone very special and professional in your team! We again like to thank you for arranging our holiday and hereby would like to inform you how special and professional Sony is. He gets an A+ from us and we would highly recommend Iris Holiday and him to anyone! Kind regards, Alfons and Lilian

We have spent the last 7 days touring Kerala with iris tours and our fabulous driver Amal, who was so knowledgable and helpful on everything we asked. We started in kochi and then on to Munnar, then thekkady and then onto Alleppey for an overnight stay on a houseboat and finally to the beach in kovalam. We visited tea museum and plantations, waterfalls, rode elephants, went boating on lake Periyar and chilled out in between in the fabulous hotels which were booked for us by iris holidays. Thanks for making our trip so special.

Dear Helen F,

Thanks for letting us know that you recommended us to your friends as well at the end of the trip and Amal was able to assist you well.

We do try to ensure that we have been to all the resorts our guests are staying so that we can verify it for you before we recommend to guests like you and that is the reason for providing few of the best accommodations for you.

We do hope to welcome you back to Kerala again with Iris Holidays and next time we will be offering another walking tour for you. In case any of your friends are planning for a holiday in Kerala, do not forget to call us at +91-999 500 4276 or mail us at team@irisholidays.com

Booked our tour & driver through Iris Holidays for our first-ever visit to Kerala in March 2018. Liaised with Mr Arun Dev, who was extremely professional and prompt in all his replies. He answered every query I had, and customized the trip per my plan and suggestions. All the hotels he booked were excellent! We came without knowing what to expect, and some of the hotels really took us by surprise for their location, grandeur and activities provided.
My family & I (5 of us in total) had a great holiday in Kerala, thanks to Mr Arun Dev. I highly recommend Iris Holidays to anyone looking for an amazing and hassle-free holiday plan in Kerala.

I liaised with Arun for an itinerary for my trip to India. He has been very accommodating to my changes to the itinerary he proposed initially. Really appreciate his effort in the initial process

My driver Vipin is great and good to suggest places of interest to visit and have nice affordable meals during our trip to Munnar and Kochin. He is a smooth driver and always made sure we are okay throughout the journey. Would highly recommend him
