Paid for a full day cruise got less than half a day very unimpressed. Got less than 3 hours yesterday and whilst other boats started at 6am this morning ours did not start until 8am so we only got 1 hour this morning. My advice is pick a different operator.

after reading all types of reviews on tripadvisor we booked a houboat through Paradise Holidays. They made sure that we get the best houseboat with a nice captain and awesome cook. houseboat was Southern Panoramic. I suggest not to book houseboat directly and book through a good agency like Paradise. Its a great experience to enjoy alleppy backwaters from a... More

So while we first thought of a trip to Athirapally falls on our way back to Kochi from Munnar, we later decided otherwise and booked a night in Houseboat in Alleppey. And perhaps the biggest mistake of our tour happened. The... More

Captain and a fantastic cook looked after us so well. I had a nap for a while, because the boat speed was just right and it was like cradle with gentle wind. We bought huge prawns in back water shop which the chef cooked for us! Room air condition, bed size, dining and sitting area with TV were all good.... More

Chittadil Tours was the boathouse company arranged in my package. The biggest mistake I did was not to check the boathouse before boarding. The boat was not at clean and the beds & the bed covers had urine smell (which I happened to find late in the night when I went to bed) with cockroaches and lizards running around. The... More
