Went on a day trip [11am to 5pm] on the backwaters in January 2020. This was my second houseboat trip with Gokul cruise, the first one being 2 years back. I was so satisfied with the previous trip that I didn’t hesitate to contact Mr Udaya Kumar again when we planned to revisit kochi. And I must say that this time the experience was even better. To enumerate the pros: • Very justifiable and reasonable rate for the quality of service that was provided. Must say that Mr Udaya Kumar is very professional and honest. I made part of the payment in advance for the booking and rest on the day of the trip. There were no hidden costs, and the arrangements he made for the trip was impeccable. • A very well maintained and well furnished houseboat. The interiors were tastefully done. This time around we had a four roomed , double decked houseboat • The rooms, bed linen, toilets and the common seating area, sofa, etc were very clean • All the ACs were functioning which was a great relief considering that Allepey can be very hot even during January • A clean and hygienic kitchen with sumptuous food added to the charm of the trip. We were overwhelmed with both the taste and the amount of food that was prepared for us right from the welcome drink to the lunch and evening snacks with tea and coffee. Cons- NONE I must thank the bhaiya who steered the boat all through the day sitting out in the blazing sun, the bhaiya who cooked for us ( must say he is a superb cook). Sorry for not being able to recall their names. A special thanks to Mr. Anup who took care of us throughout the day and who became almost a part of the family. THANKS TO ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR HOSPITALITY AND FOR MAKING OUR TRIP MEMORABLE .

We were a large family of 28 individuals and we took a day cruise on Vembanad lake with Gokul cruises. They took care of us very well including providing a sumptuous lunch. 3 generations of my family enjoyed the facilities and hospitality of the 2 bedroom boat that we went on. Thanks Uday

We've made a 4 hours cruise in Allepy backwaters, departing from Allepey It was a difficult day because there was a general strike, but Gokul Enterprises managed to solve all problems and we had a wonderful time.

This is a once in a lifetime experience but I wish we could go back and do it again ASAP! Just sitting or lying in one of the spacious rooms or dining room and watching the passage of life go past outside were some of the most memorable 18 hours we spent in India. The staff were faultless and I really, really hope they are paid well for their services. Our main host was I think named Muthus, he had great local knowledge on the birdlife, history and general area. The food was absolutely incredible, we ate things I never thought possible such as beetroot curry and such interesting fish dishes. The bedrooms were amazing with big comfortable 4 poster beds, bedside lights, discrete floor lighting and great air con. The only downside to this trip was it was cash payment only.

My wife and I recently had a holiday in Kerala and on our travel agent's (the incomparable Sanjay of Bespoke India Travel) suggestion spent a night on the Backwaters, and, boy, are we pleased that we did!!! Sanjay arranged for us to have Lake Ripples, which is a one-bedroomed houseboat, and which needs to be seen to be believed. The accommodation is better than many hotels. The boat had upstairs and downstairs air-conditioned lounges, upstairs and downstairs outside viewing areas, a large upstairs sundeck, an upstairs dining room, and a luxury master suite with a large en-suite bath and shower room. All for two people. The boat was expertly piloted by Daneesh and the wonderful food was prepared by Muthus, who also ensured that we did not go short of anything by being most attentive without being intrusive, and was most interesting to talk to. We would definitely recommend to anyone reading this that they book the houseboat and have a wonderful experience.

We were three couples ( brother and two sisters with their wife and husbands) and every one of us really enjoyed the backwater experience. We spent one day and one night in the boat. The scenery was beautiful, and the whole area calm and relaxing. Going on the little boat through the narrow canals was also special and exciting. Mukush was very knowledgeable, warm and very accommodating. The cook Giji provided us delicious meals and Baiju too did a great job navigating. I would definitely recommend this trip to my family and friends.

We, a family of six, could not have asked for a better daytrip to experience the backwaters around Alleppey. We got to spend our afternoon on Gokul Cruises new and beautiful Lake Ripple boat which is usually for a smaller family or couple to spend the night, but was accomodating us six easily for the day. The trip was great, even more so because of our kind host en great cook Muthus. I read a lot of mixed stories on Tripadvisor about houseboat experiences, which is why we opted for a more luxurious one, and it was worth every dime. Would definitly recommend this to a couple/small family who wants to spend the night on a houseboat or a small group like ours for the day.

The boat was great and had nice bedrooms and staying areas. The crew did a fantastic job and were amazing cooks. We enjoyed all of food , including the fish which we selected during our sailing. Great experience which can be highly recommended

Recently I stayed overnight at Gokul cruise with my family, and I must say this was a great choice. We really enjoyed a lot and look forward to future trips. I must mention Mr Udaykumar's and Mr Muthus' (on board) courteous nature and support in this trip was excellent. The entire crew was wonderful and they treated us with sumptuous food on board. The houseboat was tidy and nicely maintained.
