How was your Explore Tour Leader?
Santosh was superb , especially when most of the group fell ill within 24-48 hours of each other, he looked after our dietary needs during these times.
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
Be prepared for the homestead visit, ie , the electricity is cut for a 30 minute period every morning & evening to save energy but this varies from each area and the water may not always be hot. Bring Mossie spray as the boat rides are need twilight .
Do you have anything else to add?
Combined MG & QSI. With 1 days difference between tours Explore arranged for 1 extra nights accommodation at the beginning of the 2nd tour, they arranged for internal flights from Jaipur to Cochin. As a single traveller this was very reassuring to have this part of my trip taken care of. I left Jaipur with the rest of the group and departed company at the airport.I proceeded for Delhi on my own and managed to get my connecting flight to Cochin with no problems..On arrival in Cochin the taxi office was inviting and cheap, I am pleased that I had the guts and determination to travel internally and I had no worries or doubts that I wouldn't join everyone else on the tour. Would think about joining tours again and travel independently to do this.
