The collection from the airport was not great. We waited for another couple to arrive on a different flight and share the taxi with us for over an hour. Having made a fuss the decision was made for us to continue by ourselves. This should have been dealt with much quicker. We travelled from Guwahati to Jorhat. We had a suite (101) which was comfortable and kept very clean. The additional cost over the standard balcony room was not worth it. We did have dinner in the room on two occasions but the first was a bit of a trial and not very well organised. The staff were delightful and very helpful. We enjoyed most of the excursions off the boat. The tenders used were excellent. There is not much to see whilst cruising but we enjoyed relaxing, both on the top deck and the room's small balcony. Food was very good - we had the non-veg Indian selection for all dinners. What I really did not like was the inability to seat as a twosome for most meals. The first night we were all split up to sit with random guests - I hated being next to two gun-toting far-right Americans who I avoided thereafter. Apart from breakfast we always had to sit with others. I would have preferred having the choice to sit by ourselves sometimes but the dining room had only one sitting with insufficient room for tables for two. Drinks were absurdly expensive which was somewhat money-grabbing considering the overall cost of the week. The naturalist's lectures were delivered in boring monotone. Overall we enjoyed it and I am pleased we did the cruise. Read Less

We had been wanting to visit India for a number of years and investigated various ways of travelling through the country - special train journeys etc., however, when we learned of the mv Mahabaahu and its itinerary on the Brahmaputra River, we immediately made a reservation. Prior to the boat trip we made arrangements with Far Horizon Tours to put together an itinerary for us covering The Golden Triangle (New Delhi/Agra/Jaipur) - we spent a wonderful week under the care of courteous guides and drivers before arriving in Guwahati, Assam, to join the Mahabaahu. Neena and her crew were most welcoming and went out of their way to ensure that we had a memorable journey upstream. Organisation of side trips to villages, temples, archaeological sites, tea estates etc. were well orchestrated despite occasional changes to plans due to the changing conditions of the river which was recovering from the recent monsoon season. The food on board the boat was good although we suggested that more local cuisine be served, rather than attempts at European cuisine. Our balcony cabin was adequate - clean; the cabin staff were unobtrusive and maintained a high standard. Shoes were cleaned after each excursion and left at the cabin door. Entertainment on board was exceptional with visits by local dancing groups. We can highly recommend this company, especially the lovely Neena and her exceptional crew. Read Less
