Just finished a luxury tour of Kerala that Elite Houseboat organised for us. Having read some recent reviews we were nervous about how the trip would go and the state of the accommodation but everything went well. They picked us up from our hotel in Kochi at the time agreed and the hotels they recommended were great. We finished the... More

I booked HB through " Paradise Tours ". They in turn arranged HB via " Chittadil tours " Both of them cheated us. They booked a pathetic HB named " CHACKOCHI " . Everything inside was pathetic..Food, Bedroom, Bathroom... Worn out windows in bedroom, Curtains which do not close properly, unwashed bedsheet, blanket, only 1 towel, no toiletries, unclean toilets,... More

I have to admit that I was nervous about this part of our india holiday but so far Indus Travel had not put afoot wrong and this was no exception. At first it takes a while to adjust to the accommodation for the next two nights but Air con in the bedroom and a charger for my iPhone together with... More

Have read lots of reviews that have been negative about houseboats in the Kerala Backwaters. We waited til we got to Alleppey to book a boat as we wanted to see them first. We liked Antony straight away and Vinod was so welcoming and lovely we booked for two nights. Great decision - Moncy and Vinod looked after us very... More

We have been to the boat for a family vacation. The staff are very courteous and helpful but as far as our personal preference is concerned I feel that it is better to go for a half day cruise rather than spending a night Bcoz u have to spend the evening 6 to morning 6, a full 12 hours just...

We were booked in a Houseboat run by Dream Makers. We had booked one with 4 rooms and were looking forward to the trip. It's nothing much and one should definitely not do a night stay in one of these things! The ride started at around 12.00 Noon and we were soon taken to a location selling prawns and crabs... More

We were pretty excited about our 1 day hop on a deluxe JCT Houseboat. We checked in promptly at 12:00 pm & set sail. There were a captain and a cook on board, both of whom were pretty friendly. For 2 of us, we got a 1 bedroom boat, which looked pretty old & worn out (very creaky). The TV... More

I decided to book in advance so I didn't have to worry about making sure we had a reservation. I wish I hadn't. I booked Elite Houseboats based on the great reviews here on TripAdvisor. I do not know what people were talking about! I have done the houseboat experience before and this was terrible. The boat was very dirty,... More

The houseboat was booked through MakeMyTrip under a kerala tour package. Actually we were a group of three families with total 11 members. Initially at the start of cruise (12 O'clock noon) they provided only 3 bed room houseboat with a promise of shifting to larger boat by the night. So they kept their promise and gave us one more...
