  • Basis positive reviews on a travel site we got in touch with IRIS for planning our 5 day trip to Kerela during January 20-24, 2018. We had serious communication issues with our rep (Saranya Prakash) right from the outset. (1) We had made it clear that we wanted to visit Pathiramanal from Alleppey. There was some serious foulplay in this part. Our houseboat manager started by dissuading us from going to Pathiramanal citing risk of snakes. When we did not relent, he said he couldn't take us to the island just take us near it for a "view" since landing on island was banned. We spoke to Saranya who assured us that she would take care but didn't even bother to call up the guy. We ended up paying 1500 bucks for hiring a boat from Kumarakom just to go to Pathiramanal. No prizes for guessing that there were quite a few tourists on the island ! (2) January 23 we had planned Kumarakom tour. However, we were put up in a Hotel in Kottayam for the night. On January 24 we were supposed to do Kochi city tour. As luck would have it, there was a vehicle strike of sorts in Kochi/Kerala on this day. Our driver informed late afternoon on Jan 23 that he wouldn't take us to Kochi. He went back to Alleppey to stay at his home. We were left to sort out things with Saranya and after multiple calls and pleas they finally agreed to asking the driver to take us to Fort Kochi early morning on Jan 24 where we would have to do the city tour on our own ! Wherever we went we could see many cabs conducting their passengers whereas we were left to walk and hire autos for the entire day. No refunds, no compensation. (3) Despite taking early mail confirmation from them regarding availability of separate Taxi Bill (for LTA purpose) and multiple reminders to our rep and driver, they never issued us a bill. Just kept sending us various useless certificates on email. The rest of the tour was ok but there were quite a few instances of misleading info being fed from our driver/rep. We ended up salvaging all we could but this wasn't our idea of a "customised" tour. PS - Thanks to this experience, we learnt that even 80-90 positive reviews online don't mean much since they are done mostly by 1-2 time reviewers. Need I say more ? BEWARE !!!!
  • Iris holidays and the team working behind is awesome. I especially thanks to Ms.Saranya Prakash, my tour adviser and Mr. Unni, my trip guide cum chauffeur for their unforgettable cooperation and service. I came first time to Kerala and found that kerala is not only India's best state but it is among the best places in the world too. The people of kerala are very friendly and surely people like Ms Saranya & Mr Unni are brand ambassadors of Kerala. I recommend every one, especially those people who are coming from other states with no knowledge of Malayalam, please take services of Iris holidays only. Thanks. Anurag Srivastav.
  • Awesome trip experience, from tour package selection to final drop at the railway station. These people are really experienced and professional. I chose Iris holidays by seeing their tripadvisor reviews and they didn't disappoint. Thank you Saranya for helping me chose the right package and Jude (our chauffeur) for patiently showing us around Munnar, Karakoram and Cochin. I will certainly consider Iris for my next trip as well.
