We met our guide Jude at the cruise terminal. He was timely and helpful. There was a group of five of us. Jude was knowledgeable. He showed us many wonderful places. The highlight of tour for us was the cruise on the back waters on a houseboat. The food was delicious and the cruise on the lake was very relaxing. I would highly recommend this tour.

We had a very enjoyable day - we did all the advertised activities, plus on the way out to the lake the guide spotted an elephant ceremony at a temple and we stopped for some great photos. The houseboat tour was very interesting and the lunch provided was excellent. It would have been better if we could have seen the nets working even a demonstration but I guess we were there at the wrong time of day.

Overall a good tour very good guide and houseboat tour and lunch good however let down by minibus which was probably best available but seats were small and cramped causing both of us to get leg cramps

This was an amazing trip, met at the ship and taken on the tour in comfortable transport the ship did the same tour for 3 times the price The food on the houseboat was amazing, much better than expected, everyone cleared their plates and went up for seconds, a good look around the local area on our way back to the ship.
