House boat for 3/4days

I would like to stay on a rice boat for 3/4 days, Im not really concerned where the trip departs from...I would like a decent boat, air conditioning isnt essential but a mosquito net definitely is!

Can someone suggest a potential company to use and also costs involved?

Thanks!

Hi Carlos,

Just a request to reconsider your plans of 4 days - might end up a bit boring. Make it 2 nights, if possible and spend couple of remaining days in a nearby resort.

If your travel is before 20th Dec, should get one decent enough, clean, well managed houseboat for about 8K per night. For high end luxury ones, you might want to shell out an additional 4 to 6K more.

if you like to stay for 3/4 days then check the company ' Tour India'

http://www.tourindiakerala.com/houseboat.html

i would suggest you to do a Kumarakom - Thottappally/ Alumkadavu trip rather than spending it around Kumarakom or Alleppey backwaters

but yes, as said above in peak tour season it might cost around INR 8000-9000 per night for 2 people ( single room houseboat)
