It was a well maintained & discipline hospitality. It was a time which was unforgettable for us for the remaining life. The service of the staff was very co-operative and helping. I am thankful to ATDC for giving us such memorable moments of life.

On the face of it you won't come to know how exactly your houseboat and the rooms are going to be. So in case you get a chance to see your houseboat pictures before booking, you are lucky.

Houseboat experience was an unforgetful one. Extremely exciting and superb cruise in the backwaters. Crew members was friendly and helpful. Food was awesome, delicious and fresh. It was truly a wonderful stay in backwater, very relaxing and stress releasing. Wish to come again when there's another chance.

Our agent booked a 1 night Kettavalum experience. The boat was filthy, food indifferent and we only cruised from 12.20pm to 8. 45 am. Moored overnight, from 5pm to 8am, on a filthy bank side, so very little cruising. ATDC is a government outfit and our experience was certainly not a good advertisement. The manager in the Office disappeared as... More

It was really an exciting relaxing boat trip through the back waters.The crew was great and the chef was delighted to prepare delicious meals. The boat was quite basic,but we were comfortable. It was great to sleep and wake up on the water.

I was so confused whether to take the houseboat cruise in Alleppey or not for I had only a short time for the Pooja holidays, but I made the best decision to go with it. The trip was really awesome. We took the Deluxe houseboat which was a worthy one. The food was so yummy. The crew was very cordial... More

It was an amazing trip @ houseboat in Alleppey. Me & my wife were travelling, really enjoyed the cruise in the backwaters. We were served Kerala traditional cuisine and it was so delicious. The staff was very friendly. Surely I recommend it…

The room on the boat was not nice. The dusty/dirty ventilator was just above our pillow, as you can see on the pictures. This was part of a 4-day tour with driver trough Kerala. After complaining, they eventually put me on another boat, wich was just a little cleaner.
