We had a wonderful stay in Cochin and booked this trip to Monar and the back Waters. We were so lucky to have Justin to drive for us. He drove carefully and gave us pleasant and very informative Company during the trip. Monar is such a beautiful place. Do not miss the the museum and the tracking in the morning... More

I went to Munnar on a one night trip with my sister last week using Wilson Tours and stayed at Misty Green view. The whole experience was so beautiful and peaceful. Our driver from Fort Kochin (Shajahan) was very friendly and knowledgable so that even the road trip was fun.

We met mr Wilson at his shop in Fort Koching. We are always a careful of tour shops, but Mr Wilson came across as very honest. He runs three boats out of a small village in the backwaters. He told us exactly what to expect, no air con, no motor, and not five star luxury. However, we found the boat... More

Was recommended this trip with Stanley Wilson tours by a family member who had enjoyed it the week before. So glad we didn't go motorized at Alleppy as being punted through the quiet backwaters nearer to Kochi was very peaceful and relaxing, lying back in the deckchairs or on big cushions and feeling guilty as Darthan and Thangachan punted the...

I'll start by saying that Stanley is a great guy, really nice, and setting up the tour and everything was easy as pie. Additionally, everything about the tour was as described, there wasn't anything "wrong" with the tour per se, but it was just a little bit of a let-down, possibly because we had really high expectations after seeing the...

Having travelled through India my husband I wanted to experience a night on a houseboat, searching the internet it was easy to find a motorised boat along with the other tourists but by luck my husband came across Wilson’s Tours and the excellent recommendations for his punted boats. We booked our dates via email and must say that Stanley was... More

From the very beginning, when we were greated by our tuk tuk driver at the bus stop, the experience was fantastic. The two boat steerers were accommodating and very knowledgeable on the landscape and wildlife. I would choose this silent boat journey over a motorised engine any day of the week. It was so relaxing we felt like we were... More
