A cruise in a Houseboat is an experience, a different experience and should not be missed when you are on a Kerala tour. I used specifically the word - different experience, which I shall be writing in details in the progress of this review. As I am a tour operator, I booked the boat on different name and did not...

In March, I paddled through Kerala's spell-binding backwaters with Salmon Tours guide Peter Thomas, an engaging storyteller who also knows when to let the natural world speak for itself. We spent the morning and early afternoon gliding along the waterways, meeting the members of an extended family who lived in a backwater village called Poothotta and enjoying a delicious home-cooked...

Most of the attractions in kerala are similar to places like goa or Tamil nadu or and am and. But backwaters is one thing that the keralites can boast of. I have been to most of the tourist destinations in kerala and each one has its uniqueness. However there is a different charm to it altogether. Eventhogh I chose the... More

The experience of spending a night in boat house was amazing. Had a great time with my friends in boat house in backwaters. Staff behavior on boat was quite helpful.

I had the most exclusive trip to the back waters of Kerala! One of the most serene, beautiful and exotic places to visit. It was so peaceful and a breath of fresh air away from the city life. It helped me clear my mind off all my worries and anxieties. Mr. Peter had everything planned to perfection and he know... More

It was a fantastic tour and definitively one of our highlights! You dip into a wonderful and hidden world. Peter (owner of Salmon Tours & guide) wonderfully explains a lot about Kerala and its people. We enjoyed the half-day-tour so much! Thank you for this great experience!
