Thankfully, there are good folks in God’s Own Country who can arrange air-conditioned luxury cruisers to keep us as cool and fresh as we like and leave no stones unturned to make our India Tours a raging success in all seasons.

The chefs of these luxury houseboats know their fishes and seafood like none other.

Luxury houseboats of Kerala are the featured attraction of the India Tour that takes you to God’s own country to see its tropical beaches, misty mountains, and of course the backwaters.

What makes an India Tour to Kerala backwaters really cool is the traditional Keralite cuisine, modified to suit the palette of the Westerners by the chefs of the cruiser. They use local ingredients mostly but are easy on spices and avoid the conservative use of coconut oil.
