Houseboat from Kollam to Cochin

Hi, we're a small family travelling to Kerala in the end of January. To end out holiday we're looking to take a houseboat trip on the backwaters from Kollam (Verkala) to return to Cochin from where we are flying back. Has anyone got any recommendations for companies running this stretch?

Thanks!

We have found three different operators but have yet to decide which one to use. They cost about the same and the interiors seem to be quite similar.

here are the links :

Hi,

Its not possible to do backwater trip from kollam to Cochin. You can do only from kollam to alleppey. There are Gov boats or small canoe boats called shikaras also operating from Kollam to Aleppey, normally it take 8-9 hrs. Or you can arrange a house boat from kollam to alleppey for 02 nights, thats also very beautiful and interesting

Just back from a 3 day two night trip with Southern Backwaters from Kollam to Alleppaey http://southernbackwaters.com/houseBoat.htm and I can definitely recommend them! Our boat was not overly fancy but had all that we needed including air con at night , en-suite bathrooms and comfy beds. Other positives were, our delightful crew who knew how to be both open and friendly and at the same time keep some distance. Amazing food...absolutely delicious and cooked to our taste. When we asked for spicy we got it...delicious and it was even presented beautifully. We moved along at a pleasant pace, had time to take a walk from time to time and visit a few sites but the best part was sitting up front and watching the world drift on by, so relaxing! To top it off it was great value.
