Can we get house boats for day time cruise only if we do not want to stay in boat overnight? what are the charges for day cruise only?  which house boat is good?
Houseboat for day trip is good. The rates differ depending on the season, the quality of the boat, weekdays or weekends and when you book it. Booking early may give you a better rate. Booking on the day of travel may lead to high rates because of the rush. Reply from Varick Villa Homestay
