* Visited on April 2004 The day tour includes hotel pickup which saves time and effort. It generally consists of a group of tourists, 5-6. The Tour: We boarded the tata sumo from our hotel at 9 AM. Three foreign students were already sitting inside. We introduced ourselves during the 30 mins ride to the backwaters. Our guide was already... More

I went on the backwater tour with a company called Landscape. The cost was R850, I was picked up at my hotel around 8:30 and it took about an hour to the river location. Once at the river the going was very slow as the boat was propelled by bamboo poles operated by two locals. We also had a guide... More

Nice to see Indian way of life. People washing on the river. Kids returning to school and some people working. Fried bananas, tea and coffee as only snack.

A boat trip in the back waters of Cochin is a nice way to enjoy the view of Cochin and its parts. Boats offer cruise for different durations and you can avail what suits you. A couple of hours of ride in the evening hours is very relaxing and worth while. However nothin compared to backwater trips in Kumarakom and... More

My husband and I went on a full day backwater tour with Destination Holidays. We had a good day out on a nice boat, with not so many other people, got picked up in time and the guide was knowledgeable and spoke very good English. But....the company does the bare minimum, not enough to make up for the prize of... More

Peter took us on a private tour of the backwaters and to a small village to experience the life of villagers. His knowledge was very extensive and it turned out to be a unique experience. I am so glad that I choose this formula of the small canoe thru the marshlands rather than an overnight houseboat. We would have missed... More

A cruise in a well furnished houseboat with a serving of palate tickling dishes as you cruise thro' the glistening backwaters is a sublime experience. It really provides a mosaic on the daily lives of the people who live along these backwaters e.g sending their children to school by boat .

Our afternoon spent on a Cochin houseboat was the highlight of our visit to this city. The boat was clean and comfortable and the crew was very welcoming. The lunch prepared on board was the best we had in India. A highly recommended activity.
