          Hi, We will be in Kumarakom on Sept 30 and Oct 1. We are a family with 4 adults and one infant. Want to spend one day at the houseboat and one day at the heritage home. Could you please share the charges. Also since we have an infant with us, we are not really sure if we should be booking the houseboat, could you please advise?
