Seeking recommendations for a short trip from Delhi

Hello all,

My girlfriend and I are trying to plan a quick trip (3 days) from Delhi to Alappuzha to ideally take a two-day boat cruise. Ideally we'd fly from Delhi to Cochin and go from there. This is our first time in India and given our short time frame I'd like recommendations on an outfitters which could/would pick us up from and drop us off at the airport in Cochin. From there just a comfortable, friendly, knowledgeable outfitters with a talent for local cuisine to show us the Kerala Backwaters and lakes.

Thank you for your recommendations and please feel free to straighten out any misconceptions I may have,

Matt

Dear Matt ,

Board your boat from Alleppey and check - out from the boat at Kumarakom or you can do the vice versa.Kumarakom and Alleppey are equidistant from the airport

you can ask the boat operators itself to arrange for a pick - up and drop or you can take a pre- paid cab from the Cochin airport while you arrive and then ask the boat operators to arrange a drop back

post your query on the message board of state tourism department website www.keralatourism.org , where you get quotes from various agents

now again chekcing the activites page in the ' things to do ' section here would also help. There are a few operators listed there
