Your shore excursion from Kochi begins with pickup from the cruise boat, where you'll board a tour vehicle for the 1.5-hour drive to Alleppey (also known as Alapuzha).
Once you arrive, step aboard a houseboat for a leisurely cruise through the inland waterways of Kerala. Relax as you glide past scenes of riverfront life, such as groves of coconut palms, local homes, and farms. Enjoy attention from the onboard staff, who will serve a traditional Keralan lunch of rice, fish, chicken, and vegetable dishes.
At the end of your houseboat tour, go ashore near Fort Kochi to tour the area with a guide. See St. Francis Church, the Santa Cruz Cathedral Basilica, and the Chinese fishing nets near Fort Kochi Beach before drop-off back at the cruise port.
