Superbly helped plan much needed holiday in 2020
Dec 2020 • Family
I did a complete 3 day tour with indo world tours. It was recommended to me as a great service provider and I must admit they lived upto it. I and my sister travelled across Alleppey and kochi with them. Great service, politeness and courtesy was overwhelming. They took care of all requirements keeping in view COVID protocols - ensured due care taken across cab, houseboats etc. I ll take it again whenever I travel in & around kochi/Kerala. I strongly recommend to others as well.

Lie back and enjoy the peace
Went for a one day trip a and wished we had arranged to spend a night or two. The cabins are very spacious and comfortable. The crew were magnificent - boat captain, cook and guide were all very friendly, informative and happy to help to make our trip memorable. The lunch on board was as big and extensive as it was good and tasty.

Hard to believe this is all on a lake - it is so huge. But the man made land blocks remind you this is more than just a tourist spot with rice growing in the middle of each block.

A beautiful and peaceful break from India's hustle and bustle

Trip a little rushed
Jan 2020 • Couples
The driver arrived on time to pick us up at the hotel in Fort Kochi. In the morning we went for a pleasant boat cruise on the canals. Not many explanations but the boat cruise was quiet and peaceful.

The lunch was fast and rather average.

In the afternoon we ran to do all the activities by taking the car between each activity (pottery, weaving, temple, etc...).

The driver was very fast, nervous and very dangerous.

In my experience, I do not recommend this tour.

A Day Trip on Kerala Backwaters near Fort Kochi!
Jan 2020
We didn't have time for an overnight backwaters experience but, through our hotel, we were able to book a very well priced one day experience quite close to Fort Kochi without needing to do the really long drive down to Allepey and back. Our vessel was a simple affair with a full roof covering. Our boat was propelled in the traditional way by two pole men propelling us forward with long lengths of bamboo. It was a quiet and peaceful journey, with lots of bird life and interesting information about Kerala and the industries of backwaters told to US by our friendly and knowledgeable host and guide. We visited a local village and had a lesson in coconut front weaving and how to twist string out of a coconut shell! After a stunning few hours on the backwaters (in which I also managed a brief nap!), we enjoyed a simple but superb local Kerala meal provided by our friendly and accommodating hosts. These guys provided us with a quality experience at a great price. I can highly recommend this experience!

Houseboat Trip and Food was amzing.
Dec 2019
We were 14 of us from Hyderabad for the Kochi Marathon on Dec-1 and following that, we opted for HouseBoat trip around a small area of backwater. It was manually operated boat taking us through calm and serene view of nearby villages. It was amazing to glaze at the view while we were on the waters. Took some amazing pictures too.

Following the houseboat trip of 2 hours, we were taken back to the house where we were served kerala Food. It really triggered the taste buds. Enjoyed the food. I strongly recommend this for anyone who takes Indoworldtours, package.
