We had a wonderful day trip in one of their houseboats recently. We were provided with a large houseboat with three staffs though we were a family of four. Food was fantastic and overall we had a fabulous time. We will definitely recommend Mr. Mukul to anyone.
Incredible experience and the backwaters were breathtaking! Really clean boat and we were taken great care during our stay and the food served was tasty (Vegetarian). Massage is not available in the boat and we did not enjoy the option we were provided. Overall, highly recommend this boat house stay for family as well as couples!
We stayed on one of these houseboats for 2 nights towards the end of our trip and it was an absolute highlight and would recommend it to anyone! The most beautiful scenery enjoyed on a beautiful boat.
The staff, Joji, Jijo and Sam on board were amazing and so so helpful. They were so lovely friendly and accomated us down to the littlest of details. The food was incredible and there was so much of it!
On the last day, because our train out of kerala was a late one, our driver Arun was fantastic. We didn't want to spend to much money on museums etc so he very kindly drove us to the cherai Beach and hour away and when we said we would catch an uber back to the train he refused and said he would happily wait for us and take us himself. He was a total gem!
6 stars if I could give it!
(one point that's really not a big thing, but no hot water or towels on board, just to bear in mind)
Thank you all!!
We went to Kumarakom Boat Cruise arranged by Mr Mukul. We booked the complete boat for 7 persons. The view and ride was exquisite. Both attendants were very polite and attentive towards all our requirements. Meals(welcome drink, lunch, evening snack) were the cherry on the top of the whole cruise.
Amazing and warm people.
We were a group of 2 and decided to try out the 4 hour cruise. The cruise included lunch, evening tea and snacks.
We googled houseboats and chose the top reviewed company from the list. We are usually skeptical about indian reviews because we have almost every time been disappointed with the 5 star ratings delivering sub 3 star experiences.
However Mr. Mukul from this company was prompt with the booking, knowledgeable about the area and the Ben helped us with transportation to and from the activity.
There were 3 people on the boat and all of them were clean, humble and courteous. The chef was good and hence the food was tasty. The driver(I don’t know the official term of the person steering the boat) was very knowledgeable and friendly. I knew Malayalam, so I could manage with the local language with the personnel. I doubt if English would have worked, but Hindi would have been ok as well.
Overall, it was a good serene cruise through the calm and beautiful backwaters on a safe and hygienic houseboat.
