On this full-day tour, you'll hop on a coach and take the scenic coastal road towards the city of Alleppey. These serene waterways are fringed by palm groves and paddy fields and offer a view of traditional life - they were the main mode of transport before bridges were built between the islands. The most important town in this stretch is Alleppey, famous for its boat races, houseboats and lakes. It's also known as the "Venice of the East", as it was here that traders came in search of black gold. You'll board a modern version of the old rice barges, which were once used to transport goods around Kerala, for a cruise through the canals. You’ll pass green landscapes peppered with pocket-sized villages and traditional temples while you tuck into a Keralan lunch. The menu covers off local favorites. It's finished off with a southern Indian dessert of vermicelli noodles cooked in condensed milk, topped with bananas or pineapple. Disembark at Alleppey and go back to Cochin.
