“Absolutely Perfect & Unique experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Having already done a day boat trip, I decided to to go on a kayaking trip. I had done a bit of kayaking in the past but only on a few occasions, but the main boat is with you for the majority of the way, so you can make it as strenuous or relaxing as you like which was perfect. Equally, you can kayak on your own or with the fantastic friendly and knowledgable guide.

We went down so many canals that the normal boats can't get near, and went as deep into the backwaters as the houseboats that go out for days at a time normally do. Saw the real backwater life, and enjoyed the best meal I have had in 6 weeks in India for lunch - authentic Kerelan meal, with 3 different types of local freshly caught fish.

I would recommend this trip to anyone, any age or ability. It is a very unique and enjoyable way to get a real feel for the backwaters, rather than joining the droves of travellers floating past on houseboats.

thanks for an amazing experience, see you again next time I come to Kerela!

“"A MUST DO" in Allepey :: Recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

We travel to a new place at least once a month if not twice, hence our trips are usually activity heavy as against a lazy holiday. The activity for this trip was chosen to be Kayaking in the Backwaters, and believe me when I say this it was every bit of the time and money worth spent. Binu has done a great job starting these kayaking tours. We opted for an afternoon time starting 1430 and ending 1830. Binu also takes of providing the real kerala experience i.e coconut water in between the kayaking trip, some typical local snacks at a small shop along the backwaters. Such tiny detail of providing the kerala experience is very appreciated.

This a beautiful 20km kayaking trip complete worth taking up. My recommendation would be take the trip around the time we took as the views in the evening post 1730 are brilliant. With the sun coming down and beautiful view around you dont want to miss.

Binu's Kerala Kayaking tours is for me a MUST DO in Allepey and highly recommended. Whenever I do go back to Allepey, I am pretty certain I will do this kayaking trip again. Only this time I will do the 7 hours trips.
Cheers!!! Kerala Kayaking!!!

“Original way to see the backwaters!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

Actually I always recommend other tourists to visit the backwaters in a kayak rather than a boring houseboat. If you really want to get into the real narrow backwaters and enjoy Binnu's great company I really recommend going with him. He is really a very nice person and a professional guide also! 100% recommended!

“Kajaking tour through the backwaters”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

6h we were doing kajaking on the backwaters of kerala in allepey. While 2 of us paddeled in non touristic areas with the guide, the other 2 were shipped with a small relaxing boat and coconuts another way to catch us up. This we changed 3 times and therefore anyone of us got a perfect mix sightseeing through small and untouched area as well as relaxing on the backwaters. This day was unbelievable for us four. We want to thank Binu, our nice and helpful guide :-)

“Morning Kayak trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

We got picked up bright and early for our trip. It was a good time to do it because there were not many other boats about and it was really beautiful in the low sunlight. We were given the choice of how much time we spent paddling the kayaks and how much of it was in the boat. The small rivers we went down in the kayak were nice because we got to pass as everyone was getting up and bathing in the river and the kids were going off to school. Binu was a great guide and very friendly. It didn't seem like a tour guide sort of trip but more friendly and personal. We would definitely recommend it.
