Completely mesmerizing experience. Sanu is a helpful and knowledgeable person. Worth every penny. A must do thing in Vembanad Lake, Kumarakom and the connecting backwaters. P.s. Sanu might forget about Malarikkal Lotus Pond. It's a must see place full of water lilies. Unfortunately we learnt about it once we returned. Also, keep good binoculars with you. A MUST. 6X optical zoom in minimum.

Morning ride was perfect. The hospitality was awesome... We were told about everything in detail.. our trip started in the early morning, seeing sunrise, countryside, paths full of lillies, toddi experience of manufacturing as well as tasting, lake side kerala style breakfast all was wonderful We had and experience of Life @Backwaters Kerala❤️ through this one 3-4 hours trip. It's not just a mesmerizing experience of it's beauty, it's an experience of a different ecosystem altogether. Where road ways are replaced by waterways, even the fuel pumps are on the water bank... Where vehicles are replaced by boats... Where hens are replaced by ducks... The life here is so amazing, the transport from one household to another is also via boat... The children come to school via boat... The beautiful water lillies that bloom with the first ray of sunshine... The colourfull flowers in the yards of the beautiful houses... The variety of different birds bathing, searching for food, enjoying the morning sunshine... The paddy fields, the lush greed water trees, the morning breeze, the sunshine and the coconut trees... Last but not the least, the experience of the Kerala Toddi, the breakfast with the view of lake.. Loved every moment at backwaters of Kerala.

We were a family of 4 with an infant and we did the sunset canoe. It was a beautiful experience right from sailing through the village on the backwaters, to our sailor showing us different species of birds on the way, we stopped to have some banana fritters with coffee was so yummy.the people handling it are very helpful and friendly.. they made our evening special too since it was my birthday and they organized lighting a Chinese candle in the middle of the river. It was such a beautiful experience. Highly recommend this cruise for anyone going to Kerala and don’t have time or are not living in the houseboats..it’s beautiful when it starts to rain too it has a different magic to it…ABSOLUTELY must try!!!

We took the canoe ride for 2 and a half hours. It was a wonderful journey through narrow canals and lake full of water lilies. A special mention needs to be made of Mr Sanu who is a gem of a person. He is humble and kind hearted who explained every details of the village lifestyle and landscape. We spotted many birds.I would strongly recommend Mr Sanu as an excellent tour guide to everyone.We thoroughly enjoyed the ride and Mr Sanu's kind behavior made our journey memorable.
