Backwaters are a network of lakes, canals and estuaries and deltas of forty-four rivers that drain into the Arabian Sea. The backwaters of Kerala are a self supporting eco-system teeming with life. The most exciting aspect of Kuttanadu is the Kettuvallam (traditional Houseboat) which has become the most popular tourism product in India today. « less

Special thanks to the Chef Manikuttan by whom we were been served with delicious food recipes in time. Also special thanks for the whole crew members for the ever smiling hospitality and... More

My friend and I had an overnight on the houseboat, and then hired a car and driver for 3 days to go up to Periyar and back to Cochin. Always prompt, great service. The car and driver were awesome and were perfect for the trip.

Our time aboard an Eco Trails houseboat was an amazing experience. The boat was very very comfortable and spacious. The crew were superb. James, Manish and Manni looked after us so well. The food was wonderful with many dishes made for each meal. We couldn't believe how lucky we were to be cared for so well in such a beautiful... More

We (2 couples) booked a 4 day tour of Kerala with Kence Georgey and Eco Trails Kerala after reading glowing reports submitted by other travellers...unfortunately, we were very disappointed with the tour, the lack of communication with us and the homestay experiences as there were many inconsistancies. All 3 homestay locations were specifically chosen from a list provided by Kence.... More

Kence Gregory, the gentleman who you should deal with for all your houseboat needs in Kerala is a very good man and one who really enjoys seeing his customers get satisfaction out of his tours. Having lived and worked in Kerala for nearly 2 years now, I have helped arrange houseboat tours through Kence and EcoTrails Kerala many times now,... More

I have been on a houseboat cruise before and on that occasion waited until I got to the backwaters before finding and negotiating with a boat owner... This time I prebooked using Eco Trails/ Kence George having perused the Internet. I have to say I was a little worried before my arrival from the Ghats not knowing what to expect... More

Mr. Kence organised our pick up by cab in local Tamil Nadu and drop in Cochin later without any financial securities due to a Credit Card problem. Nevertheless he sent Mr. Satheesh to pick us up who is such a darling. Safe driving, kind and polite conversations- what a pleasure to have had him as our driver. The houseboat was... More
