We booked very last minute and we’re really impressed with the day trip. The boat was comfortable and spacious, the backwaters themselves are extremely beautiful with so much life and colour, and the food was amazing! Our driver Nishad was also great and gave us a lot of suggestions for the rest of our trip. Would definitely recommend to couples wanting a romantic, relaxing cruise.

Good experience

The cruise through the backwaters was amazing, peaceful, relaxing, the scenery beautiful. We were served lunch, which was more like a banquet. Our only complaint was the horrendous driver to the boat.
