We took this exceptional idea family vacation at the break of the New Year 2016 for four days and three nights.We started off with 15 and landed with 16th closest family member "LOVE" on return.

Quiet sailing, basking in sun and cuddled by cool breezes on the deck, with well admired facilities and services by the crew members who were supportively cheerful to heal the natural shortcomings (that are bound to occur in such a venture; my suggestions were taken well on the matters that could be improved!).

Good food of choice, guide facilities and wandering around the watch points and along the shores - much of the wild was seen and the wildest was missed. Therre was nothing to regret. A Santhal Musical Soiree in a stop over was something that will linger long in memory.
We would love to repeat the experience and recommend the life time experience for peace-loving families in love.

I dont know what to write after all those wonderful reviews. Still, i will try my level best

Ours was a complete boys trip with my office friends, 13 in number. For a change, this 13 turned out to be lucky..

We initially planned to visit this place during mid october. Postponed it to November end, as per the advise of the houseboat guys, so that the weather would be pleasant. It turned out to be true.

I will start with their service. We planned it 3 months back and booked it too. They said they will get back to me on the month of november and they promptly did. The planning phase was very smooth with reply to the mails within matter of minutes. I never felt the need to talk to them over phone.

On the day of the trip, we reached the airport at 4:30AM itself. They picked us up at 7:30AM, well ahead of their schedule of 9:30AM. We were taken to GodKhali. The moment the van dropped us there, the boat guy came to us, picked us up, took us to the other side of the river in his small boat, helped us with getting the supplies (u know what!!!), dropped us back to GodKhali where the houseboat was ready.

Once into the boat, it was a different world out there. The food, their excellent service, their proactiveness in having all that a tourist would require, surprised us. As all others mentioned the place was excellent. This experience took it a step further.

For our return, they even arranged cabs for sightseeing and tracked us till we reached the airport.

Recommendation -

* Better hire the full boat, so that you need not worry about sharing a table with a stranger.
* Rooms are a bit small for more than 5 people. Try the tent or airbed
* Dont miss the hookah
* Dont miss the crab and prawn. Order it before hand.

Excellent service by the team starting from point of pick up till drop at Kolkata. More than anything else we truly enjoyed the food, service and the hospitality of the staff. There was an element of innocence and great passion amongst the crew members in hosting the guests. We will recommend them to all my family and friends. All the best team SB, just maintain the quality !!!

Operated from sonakhali,Gadkhali,Goashaba, this tour takes u through sepentine waterways of delta full of mangrove forest. They offer room,food--breakfast,tea,lunch,dinner and snack. Sanitation is good and food of good quality. They are responsible and experts at sea. As we took 2 nights+ 3 days tour,we travelled a lot. The experience is great.

Ok, so you're unlikely to see a tiger, but that doesn't detract from this tour at all. I highly recommend it.

I did a 3 day trip by myself (a family filled the other two cabins).

The boat is very comfortable. The staff are very attentive and look after you from the moment you wake up all the way through to when you go back to bed. The food is really tasty with great variety and you'll not be left hungry at all.

You will be on the best boat if you go with them. I didn't see a better one.

You'll see a whole load of wildlife so take a good camera.
