went and saw fishing boats and then 2 hour houseboat cruise on the canals and really nice lunch cochin style with fat rice and yummy indian food- great day out but be aware the coach drive is 1-2 hours each way

Brilliant tour and so well organised. So much more then i expected . I so highly recommend this as a shore excursion. Fantastic value. Guides were very good.

Amazing trip. The coach was waiting at the port for us and our brilliant guides, Crispin and Babu, kept us informed and entertained on the 2 hour journey to Allepey. Our party was split in to 2 groups of 16 for each houseboat which meant that there was plenty of room on board. The trip through the backwaters was incredible. Keralan curry buffet lunch on the boat was fantastic. The trip on the way back to the Chinese fishing nets was a bit disappointing to be honest. Looks nothing like the amazing images you see online. Very crowded, rubbish everywhere, a fish market that smells rank and a lot of hassle from hawkers who will just not take no for an answer. Didn't spoil the day though because the houseboat had been so good. Would definitely recommend it.

It was the best excursion on our India Cruise. Very relaxing and charming.

This was a rewarding trip from start to finish, You see the real India as you gently go round the different waterways. The houseboat we travelled on was a quite large boat and it was very roomy on board, there were two bedrooms with toilet facilities which were very clean and tidy. Three of crew cooked us a very nice meal, they were congratulated by all the tourist passengers. Well done.
I can recommend this tour to anyone calling at Kochi.
