Hi - we're a couple in our 40's living in New Zealand - we're going to India in February for the first time to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Our trip will include 2 weeks in Kerala/Tamil Nadu. We are going to be spending 3 nights at the Costa Marabari near Kannur and have 3 nights to get down to Kochi. Was wondering about getting a car and driver for the 4 days/3 nights from Kannur and taking a somewhat indirect route via Wayanad, Blue Mountain Railway and Ooty or Kadaikanal. I realise that some of the terrain will be quite slow and am having difficulty in getting a sense of whether 3 nights is enough for such a trip.
1 Would really welcome some views on the practicality of this?
2 We'd be looking at mid-range places to stay or a bit more if particularly special - any suggestions?
3 More importantly, does anyone know how I might go about booking a car and driver in Kannur, before we leave New Zealand?

Many thanks
Iain

Moderator - I realise that this maybe should have been posted on the "Tamil Nadu" or the 'automoble" forum - was thinking that those reading the 'kerala' forum might have been more likely to have done this particular trip?

Hi all - IndiaMike is a huge resource of great information - since posting the above came across some recommendations for Fourens Travel in Kochi - have been in touch with Jenny there, and she's taking care of everything. We can now focus more on looking forward to our trip
