Our alleppy houseboat trip is really excellent. It is more than our expectation. M/s Prasanthi Houseboat Management has arranged House Boat for our trip. We two adults and two children travelled in the house boat on 25-5-2016 Afternoon to 26-5-2016 Morning. They have arranged Good House along with Lunch, Dinner and Breakfast. The staff members travelled along with us in the house boat are very nice and explained everything very nicely. During our trip the climate is very cool and raining. Every family has to travel at least once in a year in the house boat.

Took a day cruise over the waters of Alappuzha lakes and canals. Booked the house boat trip with Lakes and Lagoons (group of 4) in Pallathurthy, Alleppey The experience was simply marvelous as we gently glided along the labyrinth of natural canals, lakes and deltas observing natural sights and local water based village life with children ferried to schools, women boarding small boats for their household shopping trips, fishing activities both by fishermen in small boats and kingfishers and storks, farming in vast stretches of paddy fields, age old churches and temples enroute the waterway, while enjoying the ethnic homely cuisine prepared on the boat. The boat had a nice sunbathing area and a bedroom as well with well maintained showers and bathroom. Will visit to again to unwind and savor all of it again. Highly recommended.

A wonderful experience. Three old friends (in our 60s) hired a boat for 2 nights. One double and one twin room, both en suit and fabulous. We were looked after by 3 young men and our wish was their command. The food was amazing and the journey spectacular and so relaxing. A few little shops in the banks to explore. Herds of ducks to observe, goats cows on the banks. An experience not to be missed.
