What's included in the price? Do you provide lunch, dinner and the next day breakfast on the boat too? Do you give a tour of the backwaters too?

Hi Ratna, Suki's answer was quite complete! An overnight booking includes lunch, dinner and breakfast, along with tea and snacks. With the canoe excursion in the smaller canals you enter a world largely left untouched by time - women washing and cleaning by the banks, children fishing, men gathered for a chat, courtyards holding rice grains left to dry, boats of all colours and sizes, and more. Do contact us directly for more information.
