We went on a cruise to Sunderbans in MV Paramhansa which is a Vivada cruise ship. I should say the trip was very good. It is a 3N 4D trip. You can avail the trip either from Millenium Park Jetty in Kolkata or you can avail the trip from Sunderbans. The cruise goes one way, and the other way, Vivada... More

Recently took an evening cruise to Belur Math with this company. Had booked the trip for 14th February, quite a few beeks in advance. On 14th afternoon got a call from the company saying that the cruise that evening was cancelled and we were accommodated for the next day's cruise. Luckily, we were still in kolkata the next day and... More

A clean boat with a spacious top deck with chairs and s top canopy. Felt very welcomed on board. Food served to our group as per our pre-selected menu. Well cooked. Clean toilet. Sailed on both sides of the river to get good views. Approach to dock area very convenient. Brochures & information available fir other cruises.

QUICK SUMMARY: The cruise was excellent, particularly the food which was outstanding. However the the process of organizing the cruise was a horrible ordeal. I paid approx. 1 Lakh Rupees to host 37 people for a 5 hour boat ride up and down the Hoogly. THE PROS: As I mentioned, the food on the cruise was outstanding. Mr Shaurab, the... More

We had gone as a family of 4 and availed the Evening Cruise on the Hooghly traveling from Millennium Park to Belur Math & back to Millennium Park. It was a very enjoyable ride, as the weather was great and we sailed through the river observing the people & happenings in the ghats at both sides. The November air felt... More

Very disappointed with our cruise. The boat was dirty - there was feces on the top of our toilet when we initially went to our cabin and although it was cleaned up there was no apology. The management were completely incompetent. Our guides were good & some of the staff tried very hard but I would not recommend this company... More

Terrible experience with, what we were told, was a reliable company for Hoogly tours. Manager, on site, at the dock is incompetent. We booked our day cruise on the advice of friends and family a good month and a half in advance. A relative went in person to pay for the trip and get his receipt. No further word from... More

The Boat only 7 years old needs some TLC mostly just a little paint and wash the windows but otherwise its a great size. Able to accommodate approximately 60 passengers our cruise had only 14. It was lovely to have the boat to our... More
