Relaxing Tour Delicious Lunch
Feb 2020 • Couples
The tour was so peaceful that we both nodded off half way through! The guide gave us just the right amount of explanation then let us relax for the remainder. Visit to 'village' was interesting. Thoroughly recommend this but be warned that it's a long long drive from Cochin!

Sailing in the paradise.
Jan 2020 • Solo
My tour in the Backwater was really nice.
Views were incredible and also the guide and capitan.
Was a relaxing experience where we only heard birds and water.
We sailed allover the river and then we went to small canals made by humans.

The final lunch was delicious.

I higgly recommend this experience, price was really good and was possible to book alone, most of backwaters the minimum people are two, so was no chance for me.

I don’t rate with maximum because i though we’ll visited more canals.

A relaxing ride down the backwaters
Dec 2019 • Solo
I really enjoyed this tour on a motorless boat down the backwaters of Vaikom. It was so peaceful and relaxing I even fell asleep. The the guide and everyone part of this tour was friendly and helpful. The vegetarian meal served at the end of the tour was delicious. I would recommend bringing a snack along or eating a proper breakfast though because it is quite a long trip. But it is perfect for those on a tight schedule in Kochi. Children might get bored so for families please be prepared. Definitely would recommend to other people.

A serene cruise on a non motorised boat along the backwaters of Valkom
Got this reservation confirmed in less than a day notice. We had wanted to go to Alleppehy backwaters but due to time constraints we took this cruise and was very impressed with the service and the cruise. It was a very serene cruise a relief from noisy city. Amazed at the strength of these 2 men aged 70 and 80 pushing the boatful of people with just 2 long wooden poles. There was also a very knowledgeable and friendly guide whom talked us through the trip. Beautiful built and well maintained boat. It was so relaxing. Would have been better if the chairs were more comfortable. After the cruise we were served a tasty Keralan vege meal. A value for money tour.

One for the bucket list
Nov 2019
We took a trip to Alleppey for a scenic houseboat cruise on the backwaters of Kerala. It was absolutely beautiful. There were only 8 of us on the houseboat and we cruised on the canals and lagoons watching the locals doing their washing at the water’s edge, plying their trade in small boats and some angling for their dinner. Rice fields abut the area and harvesting is underway. The bird life was extensive and the countryside green and lush. The street lighting in the area is all supplied by solar panels.
