“Good food and staff”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The food was good and traditional. The fish curry for dinner was really tasty.
The staff were really friendly and cooperative.

We were disappointed by the parking location at night, which was near a houseboat with a group of drunk people. We got disturbed.

“Backwater Boating”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Udy arranged a two bedroom houseboat for us with Gokul Cruises. It was a great experience and very easy for us as we were dropped off at the boat and a taxi was arranged at the end. Udy also met us at the end to make sure we had a good stay and that the taxi was there.

The two bedroom houseboat was lovely it had a bedroom with fan and AC a clean bathroom ensuite also. The sitting area was great to sit and read and watch daily life happening around us at the edge of the water. Our driver and assistant driver/chef were very polite and helpful. Our boat also had an upper level however due to the weather (monsoon) the covers were on so would only reccomend getting this if the weather is good.

The food was fantastic we had so many different options of the local foods plentiful. We also stopped to buy some prawns which were cooked for us to add to our dinner.

We had a great night and day on the backwaters and would reccomend Gokul cruise houseboats!

“Amazing Backwater Boat Cruise in Alapuzha.....”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

We recently completed a day cruise in Alapuzha, Kerala on one of the best houseboat " Gokul Cruise". It's a 3 bedroom house boat with excellent facilities. We arrivied at Alapuzha around 9:00 AM Gokul Cruise owner Mr. Udaya Kumar & staff welcomed us with refreshing welcome drink. We started our boat cruise at 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Weather was pleasant all thru the day. Seeing the backwaters amazing. We stopped by in between to pick up fish & fresh young coconut. The food was just wonderful and the service was top class. They amazed us with good tasty food (local seafood). Boat Captian, cook and boat boy Muthu were very helpful and they enlightend us with information about boat race and about Alapuzha. Excellent well maintained, CLEAN boat with 3 bedroom attached baths. Our trip was very enjoyable and relaxing. Absolute peace!
We are planning to visit Kerala in September looking forward to cruise with Gokul Cruise again.....

“Gorgeous One bedroom houseboat”
Reviewed 9 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015
3
people found this review helpful

We rented from the company above, a one bedroom boat for the night.
Transfers from the owners hotel (Springs Inn) were included in the morning as the boat left after checkout time.
The boat was immaculately maintained with both the captain and chef being excellent. The food was more than we could imagine eating and had great variety.
After an hour, the boat stops off at a little fish market on the waters edge where you have the opportunity of buying additional seafood such as crabs, prawns, Kerala prawns, squid and an assortment of fish which the chef cooks for lunch and/or dinner in a typically remarkable Indian fashion!
There is the option to go canoeing through the canals when the houseboat reaches the overnight mooring or just to walk among the village.
Overall the experience was highly recommendable and as our first taste of India, unforgettable!
