Ride The Best Routes & Destinations

If you’re looking for a backwater boat ride in Alleppey, there is a good chance that you will get scammed by boat trips that go in circles in the water and not too far away.

But, we will take you off the grid to the village side and the paddy fields. Around islands and places where you can’t reach easily.

Go Through Narrow Canals

It’s not just about the destination, it’s about the journey and how you get there.

We will make sure to take you through beautiful canals and actual local life. Don’t be a tourist, be a traveler.

It was our honeymoon trip to Alleppey and me and my wife definitely enjoyed our private shikara boat ride.

Thank you Dhiya for making sure our tour is safe and beautiful ❤️

We were confused between choosing a houseboat trip or a sightseeing shikara ride. Dhiya patiently educated us why shikara is the best choice for us and we absolutely love it.

The narrow canals, paddy fields and even the food place was so good.

Thank you.
