I started from Bangalore with my wife and 2 year old kid on 29-12-2016 to rajahmundry via train and reached early morning (Its 17 hour journey). I had called sai krishna travel person a day before and had booked everything online including fresh up before we board boat. Fresh up arrangement was intimated by tour operator via sms and everything went glitch free. By 7.30AM we were ready at the travel office which is walk-able distance from freshup hotel. A bus was arranged to go to a place which is 40KM away from rajahmundry and then boarding the boat from there. The boat travel started at 10AM and it was a wonderful experience. There was a breakfast arrangement in boat which is not great but good enough. The boat crew were good enough to give an extra plate of Idli to my 2 year old kid though I haven't bought any ticket to her. Over all journey is 3.5 hours into the water, visiting a couple of nearby temples on the way and coming back for 3.5 hours again. The boat crew were very funny and entertaining though they can reduce the volume of their speakers considering some of the calm nature lovers in the boat. If you can understand telugu, then you would love to know a lot of information about various villages along the way which will be explained by boat crew. The nature is fantastic on both sides of the Godavari river and Photographers can carry their superior cameras for extraordinary nature. calm breeze in the evening while coming back from the papi hills along with speeding boat and sun at the west would take you to a different world altogether. Full marks to Sai krishna Godavari Boat travels for the nice arrangement. Finally we returned to godavari bund at 6.30PM and bus journey back to rajahmundry by 7.30PM. 650rs per head all inclusive is a competitive price compared to kerala boats and other places for the experience it offers. Finally not to forget, the nice veg food in boat in the afternoon while on boat ride will make you visit this place again.
