We booked the Lakeview houseboat through Mr. Sreekumar of Sree Tours. It was one of the best experiences. The boat was luxurious with all modern amenities. The rooms, washrooms and dining hall was very clean. Our boat also had a deck and enjoying the backwaters sitting on the deck is an experience to cherish. The food was very yummy. The...

After going through wonderful reviews about the Maniyara houseboat, we booked it for a night in Feb 2017. It was our first wedding anniversary and we wanted to make it specially, so booked Maniyara with lot of expectations. The boat looks good and it really looks premium. However, there ends the "premium" story for us. We got a cold welcome...

House Boat is the most amazing experience . The peace time you get there where you have a huge dining and living room, AC enabled bed rooms and serene view from the window is worth every bucks. For four of us, it was around Rs 1000 IC. ($160) for an an overnight experience with foods included.

The houseboat was clean and nice. The 2-person crew was very professional. The lunch cooked on-board was delicious. We really enjoyed the cruise. I strongly recommend using the services of the Sree's Tours and Travels. Sreekumar is extremely professional and is customer-oriented.

We stayed on the 1 bedroom premium houseboat with upper deck, from the 18th to 20th January. Boat was amazing as was the food, if not a bit to much. Crew were very attentive and helped make this a very relaxing stay. We would recomend getting this boat, as the upper deck gives a clearer view of the spectacular scenery....
