We booked with this company before coming to Kerala. We paid a portion of the fee in advance and the rest in cash at the end of the trip. Our plans during our holiday got messed up and the boat company had no problem picking us up at Alleppey instead of Kurmakom. There were two men working in the boat...

We booked the Lakeview houseboat through Mr. Sreekumar of Sree Tours. It was one of the best experiences. The boat was luxurious with all modern amenities. The rooms, washrooms and dining hall was very clean. Our boat also had a deck and enjoying the backwaters sitting on the deck is an experience to cherish. The food was very yummy. The...

After going through wonderful reviews about the Maniyara houseboat, we booked it for a night in Feb 2017. It was our first wedding anniversary and we wanted to make it specially, so booked Maniyara with lot of expectations. The boat looks good and it really looks premium. However, there ends the "premium" story for us. We got a cold welcome...

House Boat is the most amazing experience . The peace time you get there where you have a huge dining and living room, AC enabled bed rooms and serene view from the window is worth every bucks. For four of us, it was around Rs 1000 IC. ($160) for an an overnight experience with foods included.

The houseboat was clean and nice. The 2-person crew was very professional. The lunch cooked on-board was delicious. We really enjoyed the cruise. I strongly recommend using the services of the Sree's Tours and Travels. Sreekumar is extremely professional and is customer-oriented.
