It was our first House Boat experience, thanks to Tripadvisor rating that we selected Chicago. Great hospitality matched by excellent food. We had even hired the vehicle from them for Gulmarg & return, both the car and its driver were very nice. Thank You with Mr Aijaz.

Great hospitality at the houseboat. Both the owner and the person helping Mr Khan were extremely helpful. We felt safe and very comfortable staying in this houseboat. Food was excellent... by far the best food at a hotel throughout my 19 day India trip. Mr Khan even served us hot tea with a smile and kept asking if we wanted... More
