This was our first experience in a houseboat. Have heard a lot about houseboats but never experienced till now. Happy that the trip went well and it was a wonderful experience. We really enjoyed the beauty of kerala backwaters. Food served was awesome. Had a chance to taste the spices rich curries and rice along with the unique star of kerala which is the Karimeen fry. Prawns was also very tasty. Most i liked in the trip is the toddy and the ride through the small canals. Thank you anopp for arranging such a memorable trip. By the way the honeymoon cake was a big surprise and really touched our heart. Will defenitely come back for sure.

Its waste of time and money. Package was described for 7-8 hours but booking was 3:5 hours only and didn't provide a backwater tour rather but a run around the lake. Food was totally cold and less tasty. Even they had not served the snakes because they were in rush to end . It was really disappointed. AVOID this tour operator at all cost.

It was an awesome experience, especially loved the food 👌 Timing was the only concern....3-4 hours seemed less and towards the end it felt kind of rushed. Package description says 7-8 hours but it does not mention that this includes the to and fro journey from Kochi....this was little disappointing 🙁

This was a very relaxing 4 hours. My driver picked me up at my Kochi hotel and drove me 1.5 hours down to Kumarakom where the houseboat was waiting. I had it all to myself, with one captain and one chef. The weather was perfect (partly cloudy and warm, with a breeze). My captain went slowly and pointed out interesting things along the way. The food was outstanding, and way too much for one person. I was then driven back to my hotel. Though I had a wonderful time, this would be a great tour for a couple or group of friends.

We had a lovely experience with this company! Boat was very well-maintained, bathroom and room inside was very clean and hygienic. Ride was Super smooth. Our tour guides were so friendly. they took us to choose our own fresh seafood and cooked it onboard and it was incredibly yummy! Overall awesome experience! Definitely recommend!
