      This experience is not to be missed!
      What a great experience! Floating down the river was so relaxing. We sat at the front of the boat and felt like VIPs as we watched the scenery go by while our fantastic crew attended to our every need. The meals on board were excellent. Our bedroom was cool at night. They stopped at Champakulam, a small town on the river,where we could shop for the usual tourist items. But the real attraction of that town was the St Mary's Basilica just beyond the tourist shops. Founded in the 400's, it's gorgeous inside, with painted walls and ceiling. Overall we had a wonderful time and felt like we really got to see Kerala We had one traumatic thing happen at the end of our trip. After we got off the houseboat, we had to take a water taxi to get to the dock where the cars were parked. Our luggage was on top of the taxi along with the garbage from our trip. At some point, the garbage bag flew off the taxi and into the river. We can only hope it was an accident.

      Relaxing in style
      A gentle and relaxing day. Terrific communication from the tour operators. Our local guide was knowledgeable, there was no question unable to answer. All the team were amazing! The lunch was delicious and served on fresh cut banana leaves.

      A pleasant way to spend time on the water.
      A long trip on the bus but it got us out of the hustle and bustle. The boat cruise was on a very quiet part of the water and made for a serene experience. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly, and the overall experience was very good.

      Good experience
      The tour was pleasant with convenient pickup from the hotel and a cruise along the backwaters in a nice big boat. The crew was friendly and helpful. A nice lunch was prepared by the crew, however we were hoping to have more seafood. It was mainly vegetarian dishes with one small fish served per person. We departed from the shore at noon which is the hottest time of day so it was a bit uncomfortable. Would be better to go closer to the sunset. A decent tour but we didn’t think it was a very good value for what you get.

      A Peace of India
      This was an extraordinary trip! The backwaters were tranquil and calming, and our lovely guide was so interesting and knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna. We saw a lady making coir from coconuts and a man extracting toddy from the top of a tree. The lunch—served on a banana leaf—was delicious, and the portions were very generous. After a busy couple of weeks travelling across India, this tour was exactly what we needed.

      Perfect
      Amazing, relaxing & peaceful. I can not remember the guides name but her name began with a D, she was lovely. The boat driver was cool. The little village and the people there were so nice. Great day & great food :-)

      Tranquility
      Despite a rather long and tiring bus ride to get to the boat, the trip was very tranquil and a great contrast with the bustling city. Very informative and also a basic but delicious lunch provided

      Good stuff
      The tour was a bit shorter than expected, mainly due to a long bus ride, but apart from that, it was a superb undertaking.

      Rustic boat ride
      Slow ride on the kerala backwaters. It was very peaceful and quiet, maybe too quiet. Our guide answered questions and pointed out some birds and trees. Our teens fell asleep but didn’t hate it. We stopped at a village home where a woman demonstrated rope making and weaving with coconut leaves. They sold us some banana chips and water at this location. Then we headed back to the meeting point where we ate lunch- kerala thali on banana leaves. The food was delicious.

      A fantastic tour you won’t want to miss
      The very knowledgeable Jude took us on the best tour of the Spice and Tea Plantation plus Tea Musuem we could ever hope for, thank you so much Jude. Along with the skillful driving of Martin we really loved our fabulous day truly exploring this Munnar area of Gods place on Earth. The scenery was amazingly beautiful and the information at the Spice plantation, the tea plantation and tea museum were exemplary. We also enjoyed a delicious authentic breakfast and lunch. It was the best tour we have done in India and we highly recommend you doing it. Aldo if you get Jude and Martin you will be very lucky.

      Relaxing boat tour in nature
      We joined as a group of friends and all of us enjoyed it so much. The tour guide was such a friendly and knowledgeable lady who gave us interesting information about Kerala, answered all our questions about India and its nature and culture. It is not a motorboat so it was a calm trip on the water which was so relaxing and calm. We visited a little village where local people show how they use all the parts of coconut trees. After the trip we tried traditional Kerala food which is served on banana leaves. It tastes so good.

      The most relaxing, but exciting, boating experience we've done
      Although I wasn't completely sure what to expect, as the description is a bit incomplete on the booking page, it was absolutely amazing! The tour guide was very attentive and good at showing us and explaining things we passed on the way, as well as some brief history of the place. It really felt like we were in an Indiana Jones movie, exploring the jungle by boat. Once back at the boating starting point, by the canals, we had an amazing vegetarian lunch on banana leafs. They were even so kind to offer us refills as much as we could eat. Highly recommended to anyone wanting a tranquil (especially since it was motorless) but also exciting boating adventure.

      Sumptuous luxury on peaceful waters
      From the moment we stepped onboard the friendly professionalism of the staff was clear. A warm welcome into our sumptuous temporary home started with refreshments and a tour of our rustic but opulent houseboat.Our calm, relaxing and smooth journey down lush backwaters was peaceful, the silence interspersed with the rhythmic sound of locals washing clothes on the riverbank. Pink water lilies, birds and colourful homes nestled in abundant vegetation made for stunning scenery. The food onboard had to be the highlight. We were spoilt with rich homemade local recipes. A good deep sleep in a comfortable bed topped off a perfect Kerala day.
