To sail in Assam down the wide and wonderful Brahmaputra at sunset is a magic like no other. Balm for the soul. The antithesis of city living . The whole thing was a treat: the empty beauty of this ever changing riverscape as well as the grace and aimiability of these resourceful village tribes people, constantly made aware of the bounty of nature - and its opposite, the very real threat of destruction specifically via monsoon and land erosion. Hardworking people - a privilege to meet them all - and yes, the jute factory too was an experience in harsh reality. Dickensian. Our eyes opened and interest stimulated. We stopped too for the Khaziranga National Park - getting up so early to get there, seeing the kids on their way to school at 6am - seriously. As well as all manner of animals ( for instance the incongruous looking Indian one horned rhino... seeing is believing), the park was teeming with birds. I can normally never distinguish them on the trees, but with the aid of a patient guide and excellent binoculars hired from our boat - I saw a myriad of beautiful birds. ...and back on board - a hot towel, a drink , all outdoor shoes cleaned and promptly delivered back to cabin. Great laundry service. and the food was superb as well as lavish- both Indian , which was irresistible, and good European style food too - something for everyone. The trip was worth it for the food alone! Too, we enjoyed our wonderful host , Neena, whose high standards are reflected everywhere, particularly in the friendly and helpful staff. Oh - and before I go - the best thing, don't miss it - yog (!) on deck 8 am. with Neena - most enjoyable and you don't even need to be fit to do it ! Thank you for the experience of another world.- and one final word - you will see the chart below, the cabin was average, but it was fine with a good shower, and all efficiently cleaned - don't let this rating put you off a splendid trip Read Less

Loved the opportunity to sail through a part of India where I could see both various wildlife in their natural environment and observe local village life. Our shore excursions were very interesting both culturally and nature wise. At Kaziranga National Park, we had an early morning elephant safari, followed by an afternoon jeep safari. For me the highlight of the experience was twofold. Spotting a tiger with its prey was so exciting as was riding an elephant. Sitting astride a nursing mother, while learning about the habits of female elephants was also thrilling. Watching rhinos with their young was great. For bird watchers these safaris were fantastic. We had the opportunity to visit some villages where we could observe women weaving, visit local markets, talk with students and generally observe village life. We were able to enter temples and homes, plus we saw several local performances. In addition, our meals on the ship exposed us to local cuisine, which I found great. While on the ship, we also experienced local music and dances, which complemented our onshore experiences. The overall service we received onboard was excellent. Read Less

We opted for the Upstream one, in the mighty Brahmaputra River. Our trip began with the visit to the Kamakhya Temple, a great start to the cruise. It was a wonderful experience with excellent service and cabins. In the seven days we witnessed the local culture through dance(Bihu), drama (mask dance), music, orchestra, the local wildlife by elephant safari, boat safari and jeep safari, local hand craft with tours to the villages such as Majuli Island and local tea in a tea estate. An extremely eventful week. My children loved every part of it. It was relaxing to cruise with views of river dolphins swimming with the cruise. We recommend the cruise to anyone looking for a complete package and a tour to love part of India. We spent the New Year in the Cruise and had an overnight celebration on the New Year in one of the River Island. One of the most memorable holiday. Read Less
