“Original way to see the backwaters!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Actually I always recommend other tourists to visit the backwaters in a kayak rather than a boring houseboat. If you really want to get into the real narrow backwaters and enjoy Binnu's great company I really recommend going with him. He is really a very nice person and a professional guide also! 100% recommended!

“Kajaking tour through the backwaters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

6h we were doing kajaking on the backwaters of kerala in allepey. While 2 of us paddeled in non touristic areas with the guide, the other 2 were shipped with a small relaxing boat and coconuts another way to catch us up. This we changed 3 times and therefore anyone of us got a perfect mix sightseeing through small and untouched area as well as relaxing on the backwaters. This day was unbelievable for us four. We want to thank Binu, our nice and helpful guide :-)

“Morning Kayak trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We got picked up bright and early for our trip. It was a good time to do it because there were not many other boats about and it was really beautiful in the low sunlight. We were given the choice of how much time we spent paddling the kayaks and how much of it was in the boat. The small rivers we went down in the kayak were nice because we got to pass as everyone was getting up and bathing in the river and the kids were going off to school. Binu was a great guide and very friendly. It didn't seem like a tour guide sort of trip but more friendly and personal. We would definitely recommend it.

“Something unique, see the real backwaters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

I accidently found about kerala kayaking while googling houseboat n shikara tours in the web.I would say it was one of my luckiest random search find.

My friend n I had an awesome time kayaking for nearly 7 hours through the backwaters, going through villages, stopping for aunthentic kerala lunch,the tea, not forgetting the toddy and the relaxing sunset ride back on our shikara at the end of the kayaking tour.

Its definitely a must try while in kerala for someone whose looking something different kind of backwater tours.

The tour was prefectly arranged with pick up n drop off included.Bino was a great company throughout the day tour.

We had fun n it was one of our cherished memory of kerala.

Hi,

It was really a nice experience to travel with both of you . I am really thankful you to share wonderful review ... Also it is nice hear lots things about Malaysia ...

Thank you Once again..

For Future Travelers : - Now days we found that some other people also do Trip similar to our name but it is not “Kerala Kayaking”

Also Some resort/hotel/Home stay are misleading the clients to wrong ones. Traveler should verify that they contacted Kerala Kayaking.

Many Thanks Once Again ,

“Great time in backwaters !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

A great location to do kayaking and very friendly guys !

I did one afternoon ( 7 hours tour) on the backwaters. Binu takes care of everything (place to eat, to drink, even a coconut alcohol to celebrate the end of the day).

Place is great, we took small canal (away from the big houseboat highway), did a kayak race :)

Dont worry about being out of energy, a small motor boat can help you out.

Try it ! This is the future of alleypey eco tourism ! And being in a kayak, you will see more stuff like birds, meet local people ...

Thanks again Binu for this great time ! I hope to come again.
