Know before you go
- Please note there will not be a tour guide for the houseboat cruise. The driver will pick you from the meeting point and will take you to the houseboat boarding point. The next day, the driver will transfer you back to your hotel. On the houseboat there will be 3 staff members that will be available to look after you. A tour guide is not necessary because you mainly watch and enjoy the backwaters and village area of Alappuzha.
