from our friends
My wife and I had a wonderful time on our tour of the Kerala backwaters with Art of Bicycle. Especially as the tailored our trip to include some of the less travelled minor tracks. Among many highlights was a short canoe ferry across one of the canals.
Our trip included a four hour kayak through the backwaters along canals inaccessible to house boats. This was very special.
I'm also pleased to say that we met no other tourists while cycling.
The accommodation and food were all extremely good, and had character.
All in all a great adventure.
