My mother and I went on the day houseboat trip from Kollam, as well as the village tour. This was the highlight of our time in Kerala! The crew members were all very kind and hospitable. The food prepared was also an incredible locally sourced feast. The village tour was also a unique experience to explore a local village on a canoe and see life in a Kerala island village. Would highly recommend this trip!

Friendly, experienced staff and great food. Covid sanitisation protocols are followed in the boat. Worth the money paid. A good way to spend the day if you are planning an outing in Kollam with friends or family

Let me start by writing that I visited during the Covid times so I called beforehand and I got a good response, all information was given to me. On the journey day itself everything was taken care of, all rules of sanitising and covid prevention norms by the government was followed. The trip itself was magical. The captain, the cook, everyone was super helpful. The food was also great. In short, even during such hard times, me and my mom had a great and safe cruise.
