My wife and I completed the 7 hour kayaking tour and it was a wonderful experience. Our guide Samson was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and organized and guided us safely through a wide range of canals. This tour is great for having a much more authentic experience of the backwaters. Being in a kayak allowed us to go off the main... More

The brilliant tropical... More

Participated in the 7hrs kayaking tour. Pace was mild/moderate, but never felt rushed considering being a novice to kayaking. Samson our guide was excellent throughout the day, extremely friendly and informative as we proceeded through the backwaters, pointed out many species of birds and types of plant. Scenery was beautiful and it was great seeing the larger boats pass. Lovely... More

Samson was very good. He arranged a pickup from my hotel and then guided the group through the four hour kayak trip very well. There was a good motorized boat to rest on in between kayak sessions, and well thought out rest stops. He was very understanding of the fact that my friend (who I had also booked for) was... More

Samson has such a good set up. We did the 7 hour tour and was unreal. You can go as fast or slow as you like no rush or stress. Samson was such a legend he knows the backwaters really well and the local lunch was very nice.

Sampson our guide was professional , Proficient and experienced. We loved kayaking the back waters which gave us such an incredible appreciation for the true Kerala . The other reviews... More

Myself and partner decided to do the 7 hour kayak tour on Christmas Eve. We did it with 2 other people from England. Samson was really friendly and made sure we had water and sun screen.
