Azad was a very knowledgeable and friendly guide who showed us all the parts of the city we asked to see plus many extras. Highlights especially included the laundry where we had a go using the coal filled irons and seeing where eagles nest near the shore as well as watching a lady making poppadoms on a stone outside her home. For us it was a perfect way to see Cochin and really get to see the side streets and ‘real’ life around the city. Azad talked about his life and family and made us feel very welcome.

Biju was incredibly friendly and informative, all of the locals knew him. The tour highlights local life and culture alongside the larger tourist spots like museums and temples which was really good. We stopped at Biju's favourite chai shop for a glass of tea. We would highly recommend this tour.

We were very wel informed who was picking us up from the cruise terminal. Our driver was waiting for us with a sign with my name. We were driven all over Kochi in a TukTuk and could suggest extra stops. Very good value for money. Don’t hesitate just book. Ronald & Vera

Our guide and Tuk Tuk driver, Sudhi, was very attentive, friendly and went out of his way to show us the highlights of Cochi. Despite the heat, we had a great day and wouldn’t have had such a unique experience any other way.

Great tour! Our tourguide/driver Biju was awesome, really knowledgeable and showed us so much of his home town during the tour. Would definitely recommend!
