Canoe tour-not to be missed
Dec. 2020 • Couples
We had a delay due to our bike problem, the cab driver waited for us and took us to the vaikom village where we experienced a calm and serene nature through the smaller canals and also spotted lot of birds. It was a peaceful and wonderful tour.

Enjoy the calm and the beauty of nature
Feb. 2020 • Solo
I had a very good time visiting the backwaters with Indo World Tours. It was very quiet and peaceful, with no mechanized boat. We could see craft made from coconut when we stopped in a village along the backwaters. After a 3 hours boat trip on river and small canal, we could enjoy a very good traditional lunch served on a banana leaf.

relaxing and peaceful experience
Dec. 2019
We did the Vaikom Village Tour. Mr. Ramesh's hospitality was excellent. The traditional boat ride was wonderful and very relaxing. Perfect organization.
lunch was superb ( traditional kerala meal).
suggestion :
Tour becomes bit boring after 1 hour ( as there is nothing elz to do in the cruise), for that you can add fishing sort of activities for the tourists. but overall good Experience

Excellent hospitality
Nov. 2019
We were a group of 10 people arrived on a cruise ship in Cochin. We did the Vaikom Village Tour. Mr. Ramesh's hospitality was excellent. Always available to facilitate every wish. The traditional boat ride was wonderful and very relaxing. Perfect organization, and very interesting tour with various village activities. We also took a canoe ride through the canals. Mr. Ramesh, he also arranged for us to pick up and return to the port of Cochin, all to perfection.
Experience to do even if you arrive with a cruise ship in Cochin.

Oct. 2019 • Family
We went on a half a day vaikom village cruise in a traditional boat. Two men were rowing the boat through the whole cruise of about 4 hours. It was raining almost all the time. The peace, the nature, the cruise through the narrow canals, soundless boat, chirping birds, green waters, water lillies, coconut trees, the villages along the canals, everything seemed so surreal. It was an enchanting experience. The guide shajaz was very polite, friendly, jovial and knowledgeable. Only thing I didn't like was the lunch.

A truly authentic experience
Jul. 2019
The trip was very well organized and gave an authentic taste of the backwaters and village life. I especially appreciated the relaxed setting and the very knowledgeable guide, who takes obvious pride in his work, and the craft demonstrations gave a nice glimpse of the social economic setting of Kerala. Very educational and highly recommended.

LOVELY AFTERNOON DOWN ON THE BACKWATERS
Jun. 2019 • Friends
i have been on the backwaters several times before on houseboats and motor boats but never on a slow country manual boat. Great idea. Great ride. Very relaxing. Had the best 40 winks ever. The village experiences were good. The Banana leaf lunch could have been slightly more elaborate and maybe in a more picturesque, rustic setting rather than an impersonal room.

RELAX IN THE LAP OF NATURE
Jul. 2019 • Friends
We group of 17 had a great time. Escape from our daily routine. Enjoyed every bit of the cruise. Lunch was great , staff were very polite, Guide is really good explained everything on the route and during the village trip. We witnessed how coir is made, mats are weaved, Clothes are woven in a handloom, Spice plantation. Its amazing to see the century old vaikom temple and its architecture. The tea and the banana fry is the best to end the trip.
Thanks a lot Mr Ramesh. Looking forward to visit again and definitely we will recommend this to every one.
