* A traveler said: "I believe that was the best way to kill the guilt of not going to Alleppy and enjoy the Kerala backwaters. Coz we could experience that in Kochin itself. They provided pickup and drop facilities from our place in Fort Kochi in an AC bus to a place called Viakom. Everyone was very polite and professional. The itinerary provided guided tour of mesmerising Backwaters near Kochi in non mechanised boats, literally beautiful boats. It was an exhilarating experience seeing the boat (shikara) moving slow in calm waters and manoeuvering in narrow lush canals with greenery all around. The calm and serene sorroundings with only sounds of birds chirping had calming and relaxing effects. Our guide Vinod was wonderful and professional and took us for a visit at local village in backwaters to experience coir making and shed making from palm tree leaves. Recommended the same tour to other people as well and they thanked me for the wonderful suggestion. The trip culminated with delicious Keralan Vegetarian lunch. Recommended for sure."

* A traveler said: "It's a MUST if you want to see what life is really like in this part of India. Great guide and driver (how does he do it?) Air Conditioned mini bus from the cruise terminal. The journey took over an hour and a half on busy roads and populated villages but what an experience. Stopped to see an elephant at a Buddhist temple and then boarded the House boat with two other couples. Amazing two hours on the river seeing wildlife, countryside and people washing and bathing. Lovely local dishes served for lunch before setting off for the journey back calling at Cochin Fort area and the Chinese fishing nets. It's a must do and big thanks to the guide Ram ? driver, boat crew and Viator for a fabulous day."

Depending on the day of your tour, you’ll either ride on a houseboat through the backwaters of  Alleppey; ride on a houseboat through the backwaters of Alleppey and visit Fort Kochi; or visit multiple highlights such as the Dutch Palace, the Jewish Synagogue, St, Francis Church, and Santa Cruz Basilica.

The views are stunning and I definitely recommend. The travel time is long (1.5 hours there and just over 2 hours back due to traffic) however it was a comfortable journey in an air conditioned mini bus."

* A traveler said: "Loved it. This was the first thing we did upon arriving in Kochi and they really try to stress local life. The day started on the beach where the fisherman bring in their catch in the morning. We watched as different baskets of fish were auctioned off to be sold via different methods. Our guide was great in walking us through the market dynamics as well. We saw a lot of things just outside of the city that we would never have seen. The tour also covers the giant market and boardwalk in Endukalam, Matancherry, and the chinese fishing nets in Fort Cochin. An amazing way to spend the first day getting to know the area and walking off the jet lag. 10/10"
