“very nice wonderful experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2012

We had a day & night stay at lake view houseboat from alleppy to kumarakom.We were little late to check in due to delay in reaching at Alleppy .It was a exiciting experience when we checked in & started cruising.we had a good food in the afternoon.nicely cooked south indian style fish & rice,sambhar etc.all enjoyed including my parents.Tea in the evening & at night at some point
we had a halt.prior to that by 6 pm we had photo/shoot etc during sunset.it was a great feeling.
unexpectedly we did not have much problem of mosquitos at night.only thing there was disel/petrol smell when A/C was on.
in the early morning we enjoyed sunrise & breakfast,pleasant weather,birds,lotuses on the way to kumarakom.
people on the houseboat were nice,cooperative.
it was a great experience altogether but one should check in at proper time to enjoy as in our case we got in & started b the time it was 2.30 pm & then approx 1 hr waiting for lunch & after 2 & 1/2 to 3 hrs it was getting dark & we halted by 5.30 to 6 pm.Again by 1 to 1 1/2 hr
it was final destination that was kumarakom.

We had been to kerala from 3rd dec to 11 dec 2011. It is really in true sense GOD's own country. We stayed in the houseboat for one night. It was a wonderful houseboat with a deck at top. It was fantastic enjoying leisure there with our 4 year old kid. The room was very clean. The staff was polite and and served nice homely food. Tea , coffe,milk and Todi were available on asking for it.
I had a drive of the houseboat too and that was amazing. I understood how the houseboat is different from a car that there is no reverse gear. only water currents are guiding you for reverse direction.

Only thing which i missed was the wedding cake which was in the iternary , may be because we were carrying a kid with us :).

Rest of the things were fantastic. would advice friends to books through Srees tours and travels beacuse of there excellent property selection, nice vehicle-driver arrangement , very optimum price so no bargaining required. Last point was very important for me.
I must say we had a relaxed , hassle free and rejouvinating holiday.

Room Tip: House boat with open deck at top is suggested if you are with kids or in a group.

our houseboat trip was amazing. we came to kerala for the first time to make our honeymoon special & our houseboat experience was the most memorable part of it. it was an enthralling experience. we enjoyed the beautiful sight seeing from the boat. the ambience of boat was too good. the room was very nice. flower arrangement n wedding cake arrangement was commendable. the people in boat were humble. there was cleanliness in the boat. we look forward to come here soon.
although our trip was truly memorable, we would like to point out a few things which we would like you to work upon. firstly food should be having more variety and secondly the crew on boat needs to be more interactive.

It was our first time to Kerala-God's own Country & to houseboat as well & with such wonderful experience we are very sure it is not the last. Since our return home, we are recommending it to everyone. We took a 5 days/ 6 nights package & houseboat was the best part of it. From the first look of two-level personal houseboat in beautiful backwaters to the candle-light dinner for a couple on honeymoon, everything was just perfect. The whole staff of Srees tours & travels is simply great at serving & supporting people with there warm courtesy. We are really thankful to them for making our special trip - "an unforgettable experience".

Room Tip: Go through houseboat designs in advance & give specifications accordingly. For e.g. some boats a...
