This company has great communications. The tour guide was on time and I group was on our way. The mini bus to travel to the houseboat was comfortable. Our group of 10 had plenty of room. The houseboat was very interesting. There are 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on board as they also use this for overnight tours for 4 people. Our group of 10 had seats to watch as we cruised down the canal & lake We were served a nice lunch that all enjoyed. Thanks for a wonderful day.
The tour was indeed 7 hours long! The tour on the waters is very slow, quiet and relaxing. There's not a whole lot to see except enjoy the water and surrounding birds/people/forestry. Lunch was simple, vegetarian but tasty. After lunch we hopped into a smaller boat and paddled down some smaller canals. Ended with a small, but interesting spice tour and a paddle home. Would only recommend if you're OK with having a slow-paced experience.
Friendly, helpful staff, very good local cuisine. Boat was comfortable not luxurious. Bed linen needs replacing....two single sheets on a double bed!! Decent bathrooms. Air-conditioning worked but was not available immediately, so be sure to check as it gets hot! All in all an enjoyable experience.
The houseboat experience itself was excellent. The guide on the bus could have done a much better job of telling us about sights, people of India. He would provide information only when asked a question.
Wonderful peaceful and tranquil cruise... Lunch was good.. Only negative was the taxi driver doing the transfer... Dangerous driving and tried to take us to other places we were not interested in...
