Very courteous staff. Good food. We really enjoyed the sea food(crab and jumbo prawn). 4 BR houseboat was really clean and spacious and comfortable.
Udy arranged a two bedroom houseboat for us with Gokul Cruises. It was a great experience and very easy for us as we were dropped off at the boat and a taxi was arranged at the end. Udy also met us at the end to make sure we had a good stay and that the taxi was there.
The two bedroom houseboat was lovely it had a bedroom with fan and AC a clean bathroom ensuite also. The sitting area was great to sit and read and watch daily life happening around us at the edge of the water. Our driver and assistant driver/chef were very polite and helpful. Our boat also had an upper level however due to the weather (monsoon) the covers were on so would only reccomend getting this if the weather is good.
The food was fantastic we had so many different options of the local foods plentiful. We also stopped to buy some prawns which were cooked for us to add to our dinner.
We had a great night and day on the backwaters and would reccomend Gokul cruise houseboats!
We recently completed a day cruise in Alapuzha, Kerala on one of the best houseboat " Gokul Cruise". It's a 3 bedroom house boat with excellent facilities. We arrivied at Alapuzha around 9:00 AM Gokul Cruise owner Mr. Udaya Kumar & staff welcomed us with refreshing welcome drink. We started our boat cruise at 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Weather was pleasant all thru the day. Seeing the backwaters amazing. We stopped by in between to pick up fish & fresh young coconut. The food was just wonderful and the service was top class. They amazed us with good tasty food (local seafood). Boat Captian, cook and boat boy Muthu were very helpful and they enlightend us with information about boat race and about Alapuzha. Excellent well maintained, CLEAN boat with 3 bedroom attached baths. Our trip was very enjoyable and relaxing. Absolute peace!
We are planning to visit Kerala in September looking forward to cruise with Gokul Cruise again.....
