Thank you to Subin & family, the houseboat staff and chef for the amazing travel through Kumarakom backwaters and Vembanad lake. We had a very, quiet scenic and amazing boat trip with family. The food which was served on the houseboat was authentic and delicious traditional Kerala foods. It was an exciting and enjoyable experience for us coming from South Africa.

An excellent home stay in Aymanam with beautiful river view. Sitting the long veranda with a beautiful countryside view watching the flowing river is a very relaxing experience. Added attraction is the very helpful couple Kurian and Soni who run the homestay. Soni is an excellent cook and served us delicious Kerala Karimeen fry, traditional Kottayam fish curry and sumptuous break fast, lunch and dinner. They are ready to take care of your every need. Thank you Soni and Kurian.

It was really one of the most memorable trip I had with my family. It was the services of Saffron tours that made it so special. We explored the backwaters of Kerala. They guided us so well and planned everything accordingly very perfect. The part they played is really very much appreciable. I can recommend Saffron family for an unforgettable experience.
