Recent Reviews from our happy travelers

What you can want more than a cup of tea "Jhal Muri" (Flaked rice with chilli, Bombay mix) on the boat top in River Hooghly and that too on a cool Christmas da. The staff members were extremely friendly. They helped us a lot to take care of our elders (there were 3 elders on wheel chair).

Evening Cruise on the Hooghly from Millennium Park to Belur Math & back. Kids enjoyed the ride. One of the crew members explained all the rich history as we passed through the ghats and important monuments. Overall its was a good experience.

A clean boat with a spacious top deck with chairs and s top canopy. Felt very welcomed on board. Food served to our group as per our pre-selected menu. Well cooked. Clean toilet. Sailed on both sides of the river to get good views. Approach to dock area very convenient. Brochures & information available fir other cruises.

A great tour. Booked for a breakfast tour. We were only two people on the boat so had fantastic service. The food was lovely and plentiful. The guide had a lot of good information to share about life on the river. Would highly recommend this company.
