Hello friend,

There are many that goes to all these pages and makes decision based on the reviews

similarly there are a good number of them ,who just comes and make one thread here and look for suggestions from fellow forum members

so in addition to suggesting them to look for reviews here and things to do section , the list of other operators ( who haven't been reviewed here yet) wouldn't harm them ( the traveler's coming here on TA), i assume ?!

Dear Riya ,

"You don't need to book your houseboat in advance. There are plenty to go around, so you can head down to the jetty, inspect the boats there, pick one and negotiate the best price. "

there is a debate about this thought , quite usual here on the forum.

In my opinion , it is very difficult to actually to meet a houseboat person directly and negotiate , especially in tour season. there are a large number of touts on the street there and it makes things really really difficult

there is a DTPC counter ,a government initiative , where you can book your boat from the pre-paid counter . even reaching here is a tough job

check some earlier thread here on the same topic
