Esclated to cleartrip and eventually the mess got sorted. we were offered 3 rooms on one houseboat, and 1 on... More

We had a absolutely fantastic stay with Capt. Hameed and his first man Khalid. A great idea would be to do book your local transportation with them as well. From the time of the airport pickup, we felt like we were in good hands and everything was taken care of. From recommendations for places to eat, local sightseeing, bakeries to... More
