Awesome kayak tour on Kerala's backwaters with David, the funniest guy they probably have in the team :) You should pick the morning ride as is gets really hot in the kayak under the scorching sun at noon.

Rahul and Oscar Cruises were perfect. Friendly, professional, comfortable and clean boat. Took us places where the bigger boats can’t go. Gave us plenty of peaceful silent time to enjoy as a couple. Highly recommend these guys. Jem Fuller Australia

Agree 100% with Cataloggers ... book with Oscar as he is brilliant - he will book your ride then meet you at the wharf on the day to make sure all is good. No better way to see the canals then gliding around on a canoe.
