Finalizing our Kerala trip

If anyone has a recommendation for a travel agent for Kerala based on their experience, please let me know.

We are planning the following for our 10 day tour from Bangalore:

2 nights in Kabini
2 nights in Vythiri tree house
2 nights in coconut lagoon kumarakom
1 night in backwater from kumarakom to kollam.
1 night in cochin
1 night in trivandrum (kanyakumari)

Any comments on this itinerary?

You've probably not taken travel time betw destinations.Approx travel time
Banglore-Kabini: 3 1/2Hrs
Kabini-Mysore-Vythri:5-6hrs(Vythri is in Wayanad i.e.north Kerala.
Vythri-Cochin:4 1/2 hrs
Though Coconut Lagoon & Kollam are 'closer' to Cochin, they are a good 3hrs drive.
Cochin-Trivandrum is a good 6hrs by road.It woul'd be advisable to fly.
Trivandrum-Kanyakumari is a day trip,so you'l prob need 2N in Trivandrum.
These are rough indication of travel time.If you plan to stick to the itinerary,add 3 more days for travel time.

Secondly,if you've already booked these places you may not need a travel agent.Each of the places you are staying has a travel desk which could assist you locally.What you need look at is travelling to & from these places.

Jungle Lodges & Resorts in Kabini is the best going around.You could enquire with them

Thank you, harsha. That was very helpful.

I thought there was a shorter way to Vythiri from Kabini (from the route appears to be Wayanad-Mananthavadi-Kutta-Nagarhole) I was hoping Kabini to Vythiri to be about 2 to 3 hours.

From Kumarakom, we plan to do a one-way trip on a backwater boat to Kollam, and Kollam to Trivandrum appears to be a couple of hours based on a distance of 70kms.

Do you think the above will work better?

I didn't realize Kanyakumari would be a day trip, we will factor in some additional time for that.

thank you for your advice.
