Amazing trip, the guide was fantastic and the boat and food onboard was lovely. The two men on the boat who prepared our food were fantastic. 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.

Chinese Fishing Nets

A great tour, with a long bus ride to the House Boats, but once there and on board an excellent experience. Our tour guide Jude was very knowledgeable and was able to get us on one of the Chinese Fishing Nets.

Houseboat tour

Terrific trip! Pick up at the cruise port was smooth and, after seeing the Chinese Fishing Nets, we proceeded to the house boats. Long ride, but we had a good driver. Boarded a smaller boat that took us to the house boat, where we settled in for a relaxing 2-hour ride in the canals around Kochi. The boat had two bedrooms, each with a king-size bed and ensuite bathroom. Very nice! The chef cooked up a nice lunch (included) with a variety of local dishes, including KFC, Kerala Fried Chicken. Our guide was very knowledgeable and easy to heard and understand. Well worth the price!

Good Tour - Time Going To/From 3-4 Hrs
Doug L

Good tour, tour guides were great - bus/coach was good and cool and water was provided - boat trip was good and although I didn’t eat the lunch, every one else did - some going back for seconds, with no complaints/criticisms that I heard. When they say the trip there and back is 3-4 hrs, they were spot on - just beware of that time commitment.

Amazing trip. The coach was waiting...
Sarah L
, Apr 2018
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.
