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,
