Coco boats - avoid avoid avoid! Paid for one of their best boats and got an ancient dirty old boat. They refused to refund the difference in price. There are lots of different boat companies so avoid cocoboats at all costs. The owner couldn't even as much as apologise - dishonest crook

Stayed one night on a house boat cruising the backwaters of Alleppey. What an experience! It's simply breath taking and very relaxing. Our boat was simple but clean and the 3 guys that came with us were lovely. Took care of us amazingly and we felt very safe with them (3 females travelling together - no one else with us).... More
