What a way to while away the hours. Capt and crew were amazing. If you are a bird watcher there are so many species. Beer, gin and amazing food. Serene and comfortable, loved it.
We chose this trip from hotel through Thomas Cook holiday rep Rupesh, an overnight stay on this converted rice boat called Laid Back Waters - we were! There are 3 bedrooms and went with another couple from hotel. We were picked up by taxi when we met the couple who would be in the 3rd bedroom and taken to the Chapora river, and transferred by small boat over to Laid Back Waters by Annan and Guru our two crew members and introduced to Captain Ramesh. All meals were included in this trip, evening meal, breakfast next morning and lunch all cooked by Gopal the chef. We were given a welcome soft drink, any drinks consumed after that were payable. We were taken up the river to watch the sunset which was very relaxing and beautiful and then we anchored for the evening when Gopal provided us with a very tasty evening meal. Annan and Guru looked after us very well and we all enjoyed a great evening. Next morning after breakfast we headed up river taking in the birds and wildlife on the way with Captain Ramesh providing us with his expert local knowledge, again very relaxing. On our return back we anchored and had lunch before we headed back by taxi to the hotel. We all thoroughly enjoyed this very calm and relaxing trip and would recommend it if you fancy a "chill out".
