To get every essence of Alappuzha I can undoubtedly recommend oscar cruise. We have taken shikara ride and kayaking. Shikara's are really good options for groups of 5 to 8, you can decide the hours of ride and they are charging a very reasonable price per hour. During the shikara ride you can stop where ever you want and can eat food of your preference which is again a good deal. Kayaking is a must try. you need not have prior experience or you need not know swimming for kayaking.safety is ensured by oscar cruise . Two and half hours of kayaking in the lake and the sunset or sunrise view from there is breathtaking. It's really worth a try. Lot of love and gratitude to everyone in oscar cruise.

Getting up early to kayak through the Backwaters is definitely worth it. My sister and I spent some really nice hours paddling through the smalls canals to watch the sunrise and the little fisher villages come to life. A typical (and really tasty) breakfast in one of the villages was also included :)
Would definitely recommend the tour. We enjoyed it very much.

I had the first amazing and incredible experience at Oscar's Cruise Allepey. My host , Jibu introduced me to this adventure water sports.
Oscar and his team are the bunch of positive vibes. When I started Kayaking , i didnt feel I was doing it for the first time.
The guide made me comfortable and he was crisp in making me understand how to use paddle stick. It's super fun and damn easy. You will be provided with Life Jackets so don't worry even if you fell inside the water you will be bumped up!

The best time to do kayaking with them is early morning and the dawn , the sunet view was just amazing.

Oscar, Owns Shikara, Canoe , and Kayaks and Private Boats which are super eco friendly ( with solar power).

If you are looking for fun , peace, to be yourself moment. Contact Oscar Cruise anytime in Allapuzha ( Allepey).

We went for the sunset kayaking session and it was much more than how we expected it to be. The guides are so professional and friendly and the safety measures they take to ensure the customer's safety is worth praising . Sucha beautiful aesthetic experience it was.thank you.

It was one of the best experiences ever. We did kayaking for more than 2.5 hours and covered almost 4 kms. Kayaks and life vests were clean. They were very professional and helpful. The guide was wonderful. He took his speakers and played beautiful songs throughout and also clicked our pictures. It was a wonderful time. We enjoyed the sunset in middle of the backwaters with our favourite songs playing.

I will highly recommend them to everyone.

Took both a kayak(sunset) and canoeing(sunrise) Tour.
It was very well organized. Would always recommend the sunrise tours, if you have the time, since the house boats aren't allowed to go out until 8:30a.m.. It means getting up early but, it is so nice, peaceful and quite. Guides explained the trip and what to expect. Would recommend Oscar!!

I took a kayak tour at 5:45am and thought how many people would be there, to my surprise it was full. Luckily I stayed at Lemon Dew so they gave me a Kayak others please reserve a place give an advance amount and arrive in time cos they very popular for good reason.

Experiences that you would cherish forever. Oscars smiling face great kayaks very reasonable prices and safety precautions taken. You haven't done an Oscar your experience in Kerala and Alleppey is incomplete.

Kerela is the land of God for a reason, people like Oscar and his team together make you feel what heaven is and what the world should be.

Wow wow wow wow wow. As a solo female traveller I could not have felt more looked after than I did with this team! Great communication in getting me to find their hub, a wonderful experience sunset kayaking, and they even got me back home directly to my door because we ended after dark! Just superb customer service. The full kayak trip across the lake and into the canals is magical - such beauty, and every part of it explained so well by Johnson the guide (who actually looked like a deity and was just wonderful in himself!), he knew everything about this local history, the people, the boats, the nature, we stopped for chai, he fully directed us safely and watched our every move. Can not recommend these guys enough - they're really really great.

I enjoyed very much the kayaking experience through the backwaters of Alleppey! We found Oscar cruise by internet, and Oscar answered our message very soon the day before we wanted to go kayaking on, he recommended us to go on the sunrise because of the hot weather later, and it result to be very completely right. So the booking was so easy to arrange. Our guide was very, very nice and the whole experience was secure and funny. Thank you very much!

Just returned from the sunset Kayak trip which is probably my favourite thing I’ve done during my ten days in Kerala.

Very punctual pick up from my Homestay (who recommend and booked this trip for me). Run by a great group of guys and Johnson, our guide, was awesome. Had fresh coconuts and chai before setting off to head down the smaller water ways that the house boats can not reach. And the final stop to watch the sunset was incredible! Tour is 4 hours so some degree of fitness is required.

Best tour company in Kerala for Kayak tours for sure!
