“Trip to Gods own country”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

This is my first visit to Kerala, God's own country and I am quite happy to write about it.
We booked our houseboat thru Grandeur, because of the competitive pricing they quoted. Initially I was worried about few negative reviews about them in trip advisor, but I was quite happy with the whole experience. The staff were very friendly and the food was really good. Learned few words like "Kappa" (Tapioca) and "Karimeen" (fish) :)
We booked a 2 bedroom houseboat and it was quite neat & tidy, and we felt at home.
Thanks Grandeur, for such a wonderful experience.. Hope to visit God's own country again.

We booked Grandeur Houseboats with check i n point as cochin. We started the cruise by 12 noon, Boat was neat & clean with staff very polite and always to help in showing the places. Food was very delicious. Cook Sabu has given us homely food. I have been in Houseboat n Alleppey & Kumarakom , As it was in cochin Thought it’s a city area wth Building But once we travelled 15 minutes it was something very similar to alleppey with lots of unexploited canals ,Coconut trees, Chinese fishing nets etc , Even it cover certain portions of periyar river. As we have morning flight we checkout early as airport is only 30 min drive ..We will come again…

Thanks grandeur for the wonderful experience

Room Tip: Evening go for marine drive walk way or visit lulu mall

I paid 10500/-for a day in two room houseboat including canoeing.on the day of reaching alleppey i received a call saying to go to kumarakom instead of allerppey.we said that we have already reached alleppey and how can u change our program without our consent and that too when we are just 1/2hr away from alleppey.I made my booking two months in advance and had made 50%of payment in advance.how could they cancel the booking. We called the head office and we shouted at them.then they said us to proceed to alleppey and an alternative boat is ready.
But the boat proved a nightmare.there was no electric supply.shortage of food,no milk for my kids aged 2 and 5.no tea and snacks. Thanks to the awesome weather that we did not feel tired.in the evening they arranged for electric supply.but a\c was not working.
WHen we asked for canoeing they said it will be done in the morning.next day morning they said it is cancelled by tour operator and for refund contact the cochin office.we said that for 1000/-rs why will we go to cochin.refund us from the amount paid to u while we checked in. He said no.
Then on reaching alleppey shore we all said that we will not leave the boat unless the company person comes.
Then the operator said that for 6000/-u will get such services.how much more do u expect. That shocked us.THE COMPANY CHEATED US AND GAVE A 6000/-WORTH BOAT FOR 10500/-.
THEN WE ALL (5ADULTS) WAITED FOR THE COMPANY PERSON.WE COMPLAINED TO HIM AND DEMANDED OUR REFUND FOR CHEATING US.
WHEN HE UNDERSTOOD THAT WE WERE NOT GOING TO LEAVE THE HOUSEBOAT HE REFUNDED THE 5000/-.
After that we enquired about the actual rates.
Dear friend never book through grandeaur. Go directly to aleppey and u will get goodhouse boats.
A two bedroom ac boat is 5-6000/-only
