1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Getting in touch with local people. We were very well taken care of at Keits homestay and the food there was really good. The staff showed us around in the village and spent time with us and showed us how people lived there. Visiting the museum in Aleppey. The stay on the houseboat and the ride in the smaller boat in the canals. The Katakali at the culture center in Cochin. The food at restaurant Oceanos in Cochin. The visit at the bird sanctuary in Kumarakom. The ayurveda massage in Kumarakom. The driver took well care of us and drove very well and safe

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be openminded and try different activities. Enjoy the company of locals. Take the oportunity to learn about the culture. Try the food.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, we went shopping in the shops of the village were Keits homestay is situated and in Cohin. We went for ride in tuk tuk, rented a boat for birdwatching in the morning, hired a local guide for birdwatching in sancturary, went to local ayurveda massage parlours, went by local transport in goverment ferry, etc etc

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Great but here are two things that made me rate 4 instead of 5. The pool in Cochin was under repair when we visited. They said that they had started the renovation job because it was low season? We didnīt get any sleep in Kumarakom because of the temple festival next door. The entertainment and music was extremely loud. I know that it was going on for a whole week, but perhaps we could have stayed somewhere else not so close to the festival?
