Will Oyo houseboat be a good option at Alleppey?

From where should I book houseboat? Is online booking authentic?Which one?

Answers(1)

Answered by Niranjana(Travel Advisor), September 4, 2022

You can look at online reviews and decide on which houseboat to book in Alleppey. We would advise to optimise for experience rather than the cost and opt for a private houseboat instead of a shared houseboat. You can book houseboats from any recognized tour operator in Kerala
