Priyanka Arora Wonderful holiday in God’s own country !

Priyanka Arora

I travelled recently to Kerala with my family. Its truly God’s own country, its a combination of the city life of Cochin and trivandrum, beauty of Munnar hills, Periyar national park, amazing backwaters experience of Alleppey and the beautiful pristine beaches of Kovalam.

It was a most amazing trip of ours till date I would say and this would not have been possible without La Vacanza Travel who organised this memorable trip for us. Starting from comfortable direct flights, best of the hotels, houseboat, good car with a professional knowledgeable driver, everything was very smoothly managed.Thank you to the lovely team…….
