“…had a very comfortable stay at Kovalam and the backwaters of Kumarakom. Airport Pick up / drop and representatives were always punctual and made sure we were taken good care of. The resort staff were so courteous and attentive. The Kerala monsoons are lovely and were a unique experience. Sadly missed the houseboat cruise. Planning another trip next year and will write to you in detail. Once again thanks from all of us….”R. Sivamoney & Vidya Rajaratinam

We were so much disappointed with the news of the landslides at Munnar and the closure of Kochi Airport, and at one stage were sure to cancel our trip.

Appreciate your suggestion of rearranging our programme and the proactive approach taken . Well these are factors entirely out of human control, but we must admit that the arrangements were so perfect and we didn’t miss a thing !!!

The road condition (Alleppey to Kovalam) was bad and wish the authorities will do something about it after the monsoons. It wasn’t enjoyable. Thanks again and a big cheer to the Dakshin Routes Team.Mr & Mrs L Hewitt

“ was our 3rd visit to India and first to the south. Kerala was amazing, such great greenery, awesome people, pleasant weather, and soulful accommodation with so much of care and attention. Wish we had a longer day as 05 days want enough to enjoy.Thank you all for taking such great care, we felt being pampered. Coming back to Gods Own country for sure the year after next”Dorouhthy Parker & Steve Anderson, Middlesex, UK

“Hi Just open my computer & read your several messages. We had no computer with us & always busy, so sorry for no reply. It's very comforting to see your concern about us & our tour.I have no time to tell you details but only to tell you that everything was doing for the best : hotels, car & driver, programm .etc.... the everything & staff were so WONDERFUL.
Yvette L &Friends/ France

“After an eventful 2 weeks at south India we are now back home and will be resuming work by next week, the Kerala hangover still large on us.

Our warmest regards to the entire Dakshin Team for all the care and coordination which was truly professional and appreciable.

Except for the hot weather and missed baggage, everything went so well and we really did enjoy the tour very much. The guides were all very knowledgeable and willing to explain even the minute details.Abilash was the best driver you could have arranged for us and he was so friendly and punctual, always going that extra mile. Our regards to him and his family.

Will write to you in details once we settle down”

Garcia & Anabelle

“We would like to say how much we appreciated our driver RAJESH PRAI KRISHNA (I hope that is the correct spelling?!)

Rajesh looked after us for the majority of our tour.

Rajesh was courteous, helpful, knowledgeable, kind, good fun, and an excellent driver. His welcome smile each morning was a joy to behold! We had the best time with him; our journeys between each hotel were a pleasure and each day a new experience. He never failed to amaze us with his local knowledge en route.What a lovely man!
When we return next year we only want Rajesh as our driver, so I hope we will not be disappointed.

Please give him our best wishes and to his family, from Heather, Lynn and Julia!

Heather Jarvis”

“Let me congratulate you and the Dakshin team for the excellent arrangements and service rendered to my 2 guests. They were extremely satisfied with the service provided and have asked me to convey the same to you all.

They have a word of commendation for the driver of the trip in particular the hotels and the itinerary given”…..

“…..The trip went very smoothly, pick ups, transfers, tours all worked perfectly. The hotels were all excellent. The best part of the trip was our driver Sagi who was very professional and always watching out for us to make sure everything worked like clockwork. He was always there whatever time we needed him. We cannot praise him enough…….”

“Kerala is very beautiful and the people are warm and friendly. We were looked after so very well. All the arrangements were excellent. Hopefully we will come back through the same agency soon”SANDRA LYON

“Our second visit to south India after a gap of 7 years. Kerala still amazes us and we must say it’s ORIGINAL. Kerala should NOT change. The people here are so colorful and friendly and perhaps the best attraction. Sad to see the huge traffic in the backwaters with too many huge boats, but it still has some charm. The food served by our houseboat crew was by far the best food we had during the weeklong tour.Thank you Rameshe, our friendly driver cum guide and the Dakshin Routes staff for their professional and efficient services”Mr. Samuel & Mary Compton
Old Trafford

“We are well travelled and been to most of the major destinations around the world but Kerala was something unique and a different experience.

Very Friendly people and different from other India’s states. They are very simple and the Kids, we just love them!!!The Ayurveda treatment at Kovalam after a week long tour was so effective and we feel rejuvenated.

A perfect Holiday, well organized and very importantly spot on with the timings. Never there was any sort of delay or waiting.Our special thanks to Gopkumar, our chauffer who was such an expert driving through the hills. Always there on time every morning with a smile.

Altogether a great job, Dakshin Route Team, Will see you soon!!!

“Mr Hari

We had a good time at Wayanad. Everything went well.

Mr Gopal at the resort took care of everything for us and made us feel at home. I have never seen the GM in any hotel or resort speaking to every person staying and ensuring they have a good time. Feedback was taken very positively and we all felt very much at home.Everything was well arranged from your end and we did not have any issues. We went out for half a day and spent the rest of the time at the resort itself.

“Holiday to Kerala was more or less a last minute affair for us. The 08 days we spent here was so interesting and memorable. The people are so hospitable & friendly, the life style so different and the cuisine was just fabulous. We did try on a variety of specialities during the holiday and must admit that the food in this part of the world was amazing. The fish wrapped in plantain leaf during our backwater cruise stands out and was the highlight of the whole tour.

Our driver Santhoshe was very friendly & informative and we didn’t require a guide. The climate was a bit difficult changing quite often and we were a bit disappointed with the beach as the tides were rough and hardly any sand. we understand now that Nov-Feb would have been a better choice to Kerala, Big thanks to our local travel agent, Dakshin Routes, for the contents of our tour, timely arrangements and most importantly for the choice of our accommodation. Thank you all. Ciao!!!”

Marta and Leonardi

“Enjoyed thoroughly our stay in Kerala during the Monsoons. Since our plan was not to move around and just to relax it was a perfect choice of destination. The non stop showers has a poetic charm and a great option for getting away from the scorching summers of the North. It’s highly recommended unless you have plans of travelling around and exploring places. We did try out the Ayurveda massage which was really soothing and rejuvenating. Our thanks to you, the entire crew of the hotel, especially the chef for making our stay memorable. Would like to come again in FEB for a week long tour of Kerala covering the backwaters”

Dear Colleagues and friends.
Our winter season is almost over. We still have only several flights from Ekaterinburg to GOA.
Let me thank you all for the help and patience. Your professionalism in work makes us be sure that our tourists are in safety with Le Passage company as it is not a secret that half of the success depends on the incoming company. The season was not too easy for all of us even despite of the fact that the crisis is over. But, due to your professional work, we were able to make a good business this season.
Thank you very much and looking forward to start working with you again in autumn already.
Thanks & Best regards

We thank you very much for an excellent Trip to West Bengal and Sikkim! All the flights, transfers and hotels have been best organized with excellent and friendly service and fine meals. On tour in West Bengal and Sikkim our accompanying guide Mr. Wangchuk Sharpa was an excellent and most competent host, very friendly and polite.. We would like to really warmly recommend Mr. Wangchuk to other tourists or trekkers. We have really a lot of experience with travelling on surface in India and around now, but Mr. Tinu from Siliguri was probably the best driver we ever had, driving very safe and reliable so we never got scared on this sometimes small and sharp turn mountain roads. So many thanks to all who were involved in managing this fantastic trip through West Bengal and Sikkim! We are sure to visit this region sometime again. Many thanks again for making our trip nice and we are nowvery looking forward planning the next one with you.
with best regards,

I would like to thank you very much for the excellent trip I had last April.
All the accommodation and organization was very good. I always had the assistant in all the airports and the guides, in addition to good professionals, they become good friends of mine, specially Mr.Shibashis.
I understand my trip was a little complex from Kumbh Mela to the tribes and then to Ladakh, but this complexity make it more enjoyable and exciting.
Just in Ladakh it was a little too cold, but I understand that “Le passage to India” has a lot of qualifications but not influence on the weather, yet.´
All the best to you,
Ramón Bernadi

Dear Team LPTI
On April 16th, 2010 the european air space was closed due to a volcanic ash cloud. The european air safety authorities feared a threat to life or physical condition of our mutual clients.The entire travel industry faced its greatest challenge in history.
Today we would like to take the opportunity to thank you and your staff for the very professional support during the crisis and of course also for your fair courtesy regarding the arrivals which we could not operate due to the flight cancellations of the european air safety authorities which we had to face.
We look forward to a still trustful and successful cooperation with you in the future.
Kind regards
