Description of Kerala backwater holiday, India
On this seven-night Kerala backwater holiday youíll explore a side of Kerala that many other tourists miss out on, staying with three local host families in three different regions. Itís the perfect way to gain an insight into the traditional way of life and youíll get to eat homemade Keralan food, stay in non-touristy neighbourhoods and experience the local culture first hand.
You donít have to miss out on the top local attractions, however, and while staying with your host families there will be plenty of time for day trips. You will also get to spend a night on a traditional houseboat on the backwaters.
This trip is equally suited to singles, couples and families and can be tailored and/or extended according to your interests.

Reviewed on 24 Feb 2016 by Andrew PatrickVisiting around Munnar with time to see nature and lots of bird life, made more memorable as we had a knowledgeable driver who showed us many birds. The Kathakali Dance event in Cochi gave an interesting insight into the historical parts of the area and was well worth seeing all the make up as well as the dancing. Read full review
Reviewed on 19 Jan 2016 by Linda CrowderIt was all wonderful but I think the time we enjoyed most was at Vanilla County, Teekoy. We found Baby Matthew and Rani to be the most wonderful hosts and their staff were lovely. Read full review

Reviewed on 25 Nov 2013 by Jonathan GreenIt's really hard to pick a single highlight, there were so many. For all the incredible sights, it was probably something quite simple - a sunset canoe ride around the lagoon at the back of the home stay is something I think that will stay with me forever.

PlanetThis holiday will help the local community as their participation is actively involved at each instance - from the man who ride the country boat to the boy who perform the manual pollination of vanilla plant and the taper who make toddy out of coconut tree, all enjoy the benefit.
PeopleThe fish, prawn, crab, coconuts, some vegetables and fruits produce locally benefiting the villagers and guests in turn enjoy fresh food.We have decided, 10% of the profit generating out this holiday package shall be used for helping the poor (old and sick) in the village. At the end of the journey travellers may donate any unwanted clothing, medicine and bandages, which are distributed to appropriate local charities.
