Stream of Joy, April 2019

“I went on a mom and kids tour organized by F5 escapes to Stream of Joy near Western Ghats. The trip was very well organized and time managed The homestay we stayed in was right in the middle of fresh, lush and green surroundings. Our host was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and ensured activities to keep all of us engaged well : adults and children alike.

Overall it was a wonderful experience. I look forward to more such trips both for myself and my kids.”
