Samson was a great guide and the kayaking provides a closer insight into the lives of the locals in the area. There was ample rest times for lunch and snacks

Excellent day trip with Kerala Kayaking. Samson the guide was fantastic- knowledgable about the backwaters and various birds and on a one-man mission to clean up plastic bottles floating in the river- very inspiring. The Kayaking was tough at times in the hot weather but we were rewarded with quiet backwaters the bigger boats can’t go down and some absolutely beautiful sights. Having been on houseboat before this experience was 100 times better. The backwaters are very polluted, which makes a few points a bit unfavourable and Breakfast and lunch were a little basic. The support boat was a great thing. All in all a wonderful time was had

Booked online for a four hour morning trip. An early start but we were picked up from our accomodation on time. The kayaks are relatively easy to paddle and steer and our guide was knowledgeable about the backwaters, villages and wildlife. We stopped at a local place on the banks of a canal for breakfast of coffee and Iddly (rice dumplings with veg curry). Its the earliest I've ever eaten a curry and it was delicious, so don't be afraid to try it if you take this trip (and no neither of us had an upset stomach later!). After breakfast it was back to the kayaks to explore the smaller canals and see more of the rural lifestyle. It was also a bit of an eco trip: our guide collected plastic bottles from the water for the villagers to sell for recycling. We joined in, so there was a bit of a feelgood factor that we were (in a v small way) helping the environment. It really was an interesting and enjoyable trip. We had a 'back up' boat with us all the time, which we could use if we wanted/needed a rest from kyaking. We all spent the last 30-40 minutes on the boat for our return to the starting point. The four hour trip was long enough for us, we didn't want to visit villages or see toddy making etc. It allowed us to explore the smaller canels at a leisurely pace. The kyaking wasn't too strenuous so most people would manage it without any problems. After the trip we were taken back to our accomodation too. An interesting and enjoyable trip that we felt was good value for money.

Amazing way to explore Kerala. This is easy entry-level boating. These back waters have no current, no waves, and no adverse weather conditions. What I liked best was my guide. Praveen spoke perfect English-most people in Kerala attend English schools. He was kind, funny, professional and very informative about the alcoholic beverages being made high up in the palm trees, the birds we saw and most of the vegetation. You will paddle through whole farms of baby ducklings being raised for food. You will see the villagers and the school children as they go about their daily routines from these canals that do not have car access. Breaks were provided, although not really needed. A little table and chairs were set up in the shade and drinks, cookies and fruit were offered. Bring a hat and sunglasses. Wear shorts and a tee shirt. There were no bugs: no flys, no mosquitoes. This is a 'walk in the park' sort of activity. Dreamy quiet and slow. My 93 year old father would have been completely able and comfortable. My visit was right after one of the worst monsoon seasons ever. The country did an amazing job of removing mudslides and rebuilding roads and bridges. The backwaters were not impacted from a kayaking standpoint. We did get to watch crews of workers along the canals doing some clean-up and rebuilding. If you plan ahead like I did-several months before, you can basically choose any sort of trip. I kayaked about 4-5 hours each day, with a guide and support boat. I stayed at different 'Homestays' along the way. There are rooms or apartments well removed from a heritage family home. Private outdoor showers! Authentic home cooked meals!

Samson gave us a perfect day! We both love to Kayak, and were so happy to find the opportunity to Kayak the backwaters! What made the experience great though was Samson. He was so knowledgeable and engaging. Definitely recommend everyone do a kayak trip with Samson.
