For Rs 300, 45 minutes ride on the mighty Brahmaputra with the spectacular sunset view and some beautiful live music is great. Mind-blowing... Snacks and drinks are also available.

pretty nice cruise ship wading through the mighty brahmputra but still overhyped for a traveller who has seen better

Did the one hour Sun Set cruise. Basic ship with two Upper and Lower decks. It takes you around the Brahmputra with some Bollywood numbers being belted out by crooners in the lower deck. You can order very reasonably priced drinks from the bar or tea/coffee, snacks etc. The crooners surprisingly were very good, perhaps as a testimony to the... More

We called their booking office, a day in advance and made a booking for us both for the dinner cruise (just give your name and mobile number). They normally call you towards evening to confirm your arrival. You reach their jetty at Machkhowa. The charges for a 2-hour Dinner Cruise is Rs.1000/- per adult. You can report at their counter...

A 45 mim ride on the Brahmaputra with the spectacular sunset view and some live music, for ₹300 is absolutely worth it. There are different types of cruises - sunset at 4PM ( upper deck ₹300, lower deck ₹250) , sun down at 5:30PM and dinner cruise with local performances. We have not tried the others but felt that sunset... More

What do you expect on an hour long cruise which costs you 250 INR. My expectations were exceeded in every way. The Ship was huge, the looping area was wonderful, with a curving mountain on one side and a beautiful bridge on the other. The music was brilliant, top quality , the choice of songs was amazing. Overall, must do... More

Not as expected. They need to learn more from their counterparts like Cruises in Goa and places alike in India & abroad on how to attract all communities and not please only one type otherwise it becomes boring for others. The hindi songs were dull. Would have loved to hear some english songs and entertainment. The food and the service... More
