Kumarakom Backwaters In Kumarakom

The beauty of the Kumarakom Backwaters lies in its tranquility. A sense of peace prevails as you glide across the calm canals, past the small fishing villages and further towards the edge of the sea. When in Kerala, tourists make sure that they spend at least a night or a few hours at the backwaters, if not on an overnight cruise then at least on a small boat tour. The houseboats are pretty well stocked and furnished, and offer all the modern amenities that a hotel does, so a stay here is sure quite comforting.

When hiring a Kumarakom backwater cruise, it is a good idea to spend some time exploring the nearby villages to get a sneak peek into the local lifestyle. <readmore>You can indulge in the local delicacies and also visit the little markets to shop for a few handmade souvenirs. A sightseeing tour of the Kumarakom Backwaters will surely make your holiday is Kerala more memorable!

    • Trip to Kerala

      Driver was supposed to be driver cum guide but he didn't provide us proper information. Dams in Munnar close boating around 4-5 pm. We reached everywhere at closing time. We also reached Houseboat at 2 pm, we had asked our driver what time we should checkout and leave for Allaphuza, we wanted to reach atleast by 12. He told us leaving 9:30 - 10:00 should be enough to reach on time but we were late. It was the same story all the time. After our first day experience we had to always keep track of him on what the plan was to make sure things went well but sometimes it wasn't possible. He would randomly change plans without consulting us. He was not a good guide. House boat experience was also not good. We did not get the boat arrangements like promised, also the Houseboat guy did not show us around the boat but kept our bags in boat and left. We realized the arrangements were not good after the boat trip started. Overall we did not get our Money's worth. We were also promised Honeymoon inclusions which were not provided. We expected booking through Travel agent will make our trip efficient but it was not the case, a better guide would have made a lot of difference. He was good as a driver but not as a guide.

      Pine Tree hotel at Munnar was in outskirt from main Munnar city. Except BSNL none of the network is working. Although hotel provided wifi connection. Expected Houseboat quality much better, as I informed during booking. But overall it was good. Also if Traveltriangle can give a glimpse of local tour cost, will be much helpful. Anyway it was a great trip. Riyas our driver for 8days is an excellent person. For him our tour was very smooth & safe.

      Overall we had a very nice trip. We enjoyed it. Hotel in munnar was too good. The cab driver was punctuate and friendly and he is familiar with the places and the routes. The boat house in alleppey was also good and food in the boat house was awesome. Further, the staff of the houseboat were good. However, we felt that we had a quick boat ride and they didn't explain anything about the places. Thank you to the travel agency (Duniya Zamana) for arranging such a nice trip. But our suggestion to travel agency is to provide necessary details to the travellers before they ask. We are giving this suggestion because the travel agency did not call or provide any update after paying money. Also, we had called several times to get the cab details and all.. However, the trip was good. Munnar jeep safari, stay in alleppey boat house

      We had a trip to Kerala.. experience for Munnar was good although there were hotel change at last minute by agent and there were many miscommunication between agent and cab driver for which Everytime I had to chase my agent at least twice or thrice im a day.. my alleppy experience was not so good.. the caretaker in the houseboat was very very rude and it seemed like we are there for free and he almost shouted for very very small requests.. and at last I already paid but last installment was not showing in mmt so agent yelled at me saying that cab is not going to move ahead untill u clear ur amount. Although he apologized for the same.. but still it can be a much better trip but I had bad experiencea too..

      The commitment of Ford eco sport car and House boat (pictures sent) was not fulfilled. The email communication is present. The special occasion of our anniversary was ruined because of this. We tried to reach out to them but they were not reachable and so we were stranded in the middle of our trip on house boat. The cab committed was Ford Ecosport but got Swift Desire, had to got house boat as per the picture sent by agent but got different ones. Rest of the story u know(as in email). This made our trip memorable because of all the wrong reasons.
