We've booked full day Backwater tour at Vedanta Wake up, fort kochi (where we stayed) which cost us Rs 850 per person. Tour was managed by company called as 'Ethnic Voyages'.
At around 8.30 am we've taken by a shared taxi to the tour starting point which was total 1 hour journey from fort kochi. By 9.30- 10 am we have shifted into a traditional thatched houseboat pulled along by two men. Which was no rush type, slow and amazing. On the way our guide shown us some birds, unique plants, process of extracting coconut oil etc.
At around 1 pm we had traditional lunch on a banana leaf which was basic. After lunch we've taken into another round of trip through the narrow waterways of the kerala backwaters. Which was just wow! Way better than morning trip.
I personally think that it was worth for the money we paid and must do as a day trip from fort kochi.
