    You will find that prices will vary-and you would have to try and strike a bargain. Try Google ( Kerala Backwater Tours)

    Hey Denis,

    I agree, if you are lookin’ for best bargain prices then perhaps best to book a deal on the spot, instead of pre-bookin’, you’ll find plenty around
    2 get an idea of the best prices, check out the prices of these Govt. run packages

    I opted for a short tour(6hrs) for Rs 600. Some of my friends who did the day long tour paid close to Rs 1500. I would surely recommend the short one as it was very customizable. Its best to bargain on the spot.
