Two of us toured in Kerala with CHALUKYA GRACE TOURS and stayed at Our Land Island for two nights. We enjoyed a five-day trip from Cochin to Munnar and back to Allepey.
The highlights of this were a visit to the spice garden and the tea-covered hills of Munnar.
We had a very competent and safe driver.
On a houseboat we explored the Backwaters, accompanied by a cook, a driver and a manager! The food was genuine Kerulen cuisine, fresh and delicious – both on the boat and also at the Our Land resort. We stayed in a renovated bungalow, had our meals brought to us on the porch overlooking the river and spent the time walking, watching river life: houseboats, people fishing and huge flocks of ducks being 'herded' down the river. Our host took us on a long walk around the rice fields and canals and organised a night boat ride down the river as a birthday present for my companion. This was stunning – so quiet and peaceful and also great views of village life. I can highly recommend CHALUKYA GRACE TOURS and their Our Land Resort.
