The drive will take about one and a half hour. Once we reach the Vembanad Lake, you will check in to a beautiful houseboat.

The 4-hour cruise in the houseboat will offer you an ultimate experience of the enchanting backwaters of Kerala. You will be served authentic Kerala lunch in the afternoon and before you check out of the houseboat, tea and snacks will be offered to you. During the cruise, you can try fishing.

Depending on your interest and the time you have, we could take you for ayurvedic massages or shopping after the cruise. Then, we will drop you at the the airport, railway station, your hotel or any other preferred drop-off point at Cochin

Editor's Review

If you want an ideal experience of the scenic backwaters of Kerala and you just have one day to spare, this tour plan is simply perfect. A good lunch, tea and snacks are offered at the houseboat. The beautiful glimpses of village life along the shore turn into joyful memories. The rejuvenating ayurvedic massages and souvenir shopping add to and complete the experience.


  • Best backwater experience in limited time.
  • You can have ayurvedic massages or do some shopping after the cruise.
  • Good lunch, tea and snacks are served at the houseboat


  • Not many sightseeing options.
    • If you want to spend some time visiting sightseeing spots, we could suggest a different tour plan for you.
  • You cannot experience houseboat cruise, canoe ride and Kayaking together.
    • This is because we have limited time. So you can choose only one of them.
