Owner description: The Backwaters of Kerala is unique and is found nowhere else in the world. 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.

After searching through reviews online we decided to book with Eco Trails. We gave Kence a call and sorted the rest out via email. He arranged to pick us up from Marari beach and delivered us safely to our houseboat. We had welcome coconuts to drink and Kence explained all about the area and the boat. James and the crew... More

We made two separate bookings with Eco trials, a 3 days private trip for my guest and a one day house boat trip for our honeymoon. Kence arranged things properly and responded to all our emails. The rate for the trips were nominal and he tried to accommodate most of our requests. The house boat he arranged was nice 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
