“I am referring to "Papikondalu" day boat tour”

Sai Krishna Godavari Boat Travels - Day Tours
Reviewed 8 February 2016

I do not recommend this Papikondalu boat tour, 7:30am-7:30pm. One hour bus journey followed by boat. Loud music at 110dB for entire 8 hours, boat crew do not collect the lunch plates and cups and so these overflow, many people throw cups into Godavari river, narrow planks to get on and off boats. Instead take a 2 hour boat tour.

I took an customized package with saikrishna boat travels. The trip started from vijayawada (Kanakadurga temple) , pancharamam, mangalagiri, bhadrachalam via boat trip.

I appreciate :
1) the accommodation provided and vehicle as well.
2) all the intended places were covered.
3) Food was not included in the package. But we have taken the required stops for food.
4) Boat trip was also very good.
5) Stayed in bamboo huts accommodation which was extremely good.

Not appreciated:
1) we were not informed that we have to carry the luggage from boat stop to the location. They have to educate the travelers regarding the same as the distance is quite far and i traveled with mostly elder people.
2) Accommodation provided in Bhadrachalam was not good and the point of contact was not approachable.

Summary :
It was a nice trip overall and worth going with them

we did a 2 day family trip to papi hills from rajamundry. Had super fun.. Food included in the motor boat.. Night stay was a night mare though. Open accomodation... Check out the night stay before reserving. Do not remember the agency though..

Godavari River - One of the best places to explore in Andra Pradesh.

Boats are comfortable for a half day trip but use plastic cups for water and then dump into the river. Very sad state of such a wonderful river

Stayed there in the Bamboo huts.

Place needs lot of improvement- No proper washrooms

The place is located near rajamundry. From the hotel where you stay you can book for a day tour which is econimical and worth the cost

We started the day early at 7 am as we had to reach the destination to catch the boat. Prefer to take the tour veichle which they would provide as the road is bad and once you reach parking is at your risk (full day)

Soon you would end up forgetting the road once the boat leaves the river (godavari)

You are welcomed by a MC / DJ / guide .... Whatever you would like to name him - but for sure her would keep you busy with his jokes (sometimes irritating) - the whole time is very well planned by these people - games , dance , entertainement program all on the boat and with nature to admire

There are few stops it make and you can get down to see these places which mostly are temples - but worth the visit. One such place is where you can buy stuff made out of bamboo which is just amazing (remember to purchase as soon as you get down as it would go like a wind)

The whole staff on the boat is very friendly and helpful. It has a small canteen where you can buy munchies. They would serve you breakfast and lunch along with evening snacks - which is decent and edible

For nature lovers its an ideal place for photography - you also have an option to stay at one of the small islands which needs to booked earlier (sure would be worth)

In the end its a day well spend by all means
