Hello...I am going to Kerala in februar. I would like to go on Backwaters tour from Alappuzha to Kollam...Can anyone tell me the price... I am student so I need cheap price...
You will find that prices will vary-and you would have to try and strike a bargain. Try Google ( Kerala Backwater Tours)
Don't book in advance, there will be plenty of operators and boats and as Lynne says try to bargain...
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.
hey try for On the spot deal it will cost you Rs.400-500 for 3 hours and it also depends on the boat you want to travel.there is lot of variety in the boats motor boats shikara, peddling and canoe kind shikara is most expensive after the houseboat however motor boats are very in expensive and affordable.
