Owner description: Backwater cruise in a shaded canoe boat. This will offer you a special experience. This trip would be superb for those who are willing to be away from sound and noises of busy life.. We operate this cruise in a calm and quiet area where you can know about the insides of village.The trip starts on early morning 6:30 ans end on evening 3:30 and it includes breakfast and lunch for the day and you can enjoy activities like feeding and bathing elephant.

Had a great time on the backwater tour. We stopped on a canal, walked through the village to the other side and had a swim in the sea. The water was perfect and the beach was deserted, it felt amazing. The food on the boat was fantastic and we were left clutching our full bellies. The boat crew were really sweet and did everything to make the experience really special for us.

We booked two tours with Wilson Day Tours about 2 weeks ago and had a wunderful time. Since we did not have a lot of time in Kochi Mr. Wilson arranged the tour to Munnar and to the Backwaters as a compact tour, so that we could see everything we wanted to.
Our driver Justin was a very nice person, who drove us safely to all the sights and knew every answer to our questions.
Our stay at the Misty Green in Munnar was really nice as well. The owner Robin is a very caring person, he offered us a cup of tea as soon as we got there and he is a very good cook as well.
We can definitely recommend the organisation since we learned a lot, met nice people and the price was definitely reasonable.
Thank you very much!

Well planned but flexible - our tour was designed in a way that enabled adequate pace for digesting all attractions on the way but also allowed for some extra ideas. Our driver - Justin - was very helpful, knew the place well and was invariably patient with our innovations to his agenda. Recommended.

We booked the overnight houseboat, one night at the farmhouse near Thiravoor and also 2 nights in Munnar. The houseboat was excellent, peaceful and the most delicious food that we had on our whole trip. The farmhouse was also really gorgeous and we arranged a taxi to the bus stop and went to Allepey for the day. The people were so friendly and helpful, really beautiful place. Then we were picked up bright and early and driven to Munnar, stopping at several points along the way including a stop to watch elephant washing. Our driver, John, was awesome! Really sweet and helpful, funny and flexible (we wanted to be dropped into Munnar town after sightseeing and he stayed in the car and waited for us, so sweet). He also took us to various sightseeing places and spotted some wild monkeys for us around top station, really cool! We stayed in Misty Green view house in Munnar and it is a really special place, thanks to Robbie for so much delicious food, especially the masala breakfast! We also met with Stanley a few times while organizing the trip and he was super sweet and helpful, he's very trustworthy along with everyone that we met through our tour with him. Highly recommended!

We booked Wilson's tour to Munnar and also his punting backwater tour and really liked both of them.
I had done a backwater tour last year from Allepey and it had been great but the punting trip was so much better as we went through small canals, we saw lots of birds and it was really quiet and peaceful.
The boat did not have AC, just a fan, but we just left everything open at night and slept so much better than with the freezing AC last year!
The trip to Munnar was as good as last year - but last year's driver spoke English reasonably well, this year's driver's English was not as good, so much of the information I could pass on to my friend was from last year - if you want information, maybe you have to mention that you would like to have a driver whose English is good! Maybe it was only because we travelled at the weekend and there was no driver available whose English was sufficient, but it definitely is an advantage if the driver speaks English well.
