A very fine sunrise boat tour and excellent guiding by 5-star guide Kasif, by car, boat and walk at the Ghats (riverfronts). Kasif told us everything of interest and made the trip memorable. Highly recommended!

My guide is really informative. But we got into a boat after the sun had risen for a while.
