Unfortunately due to this rules of india mike I am unable to protect houseboat tarvellers from using an unreputable company based in kumarakom for e debacle of a trip they tried to enforce on us for twice the advertised prices locally.

this forum has some times funny rules
So has anyone used Alleppey Tourism Development Cooperative for a houseboat? They seem more reasonable in price than some others and responded to my email in good detail. Are they reliable? Would you use a non-AC houseboat in late March? Avoiding the generator noise, closed windows, etc is appealing. Do the houseboats have ceiling fans?
The guy (Mr. Babu) charged around 7000 rupees for two bedroom ac house boat for a family of 4.
Later while shopping around for gifts, one shop keeper told me that I overpaid, he gave his card with phone numbers. He said we could probably get it for 4-5 k per night.
Can you PM me or can you post on this thread the contact number of Mr Babu and the phone numbers of the shopkeeper.
