So we were four friends did our 15days kerala trip with tyndis. I must say that kerala is gonna stays in my heart forever now, not just becasue kerala was beautiful but the way trip was managed(stays, local experience, food, itinearary, route, guides and everything what a trip is consist off) was way above what we imagined. We did leisure, adventure, hikes, local experience, tea plantataion, spice plan tour, food tour. We alsmof travelled like locals. Guides and guidance provided by naveen(he managed it all) was superb and remarkable. I feel so lucky and priviliged to choose tyndis for our trip to kerala. 10/10 + 1 star for all the efforts. They know every bits and parts of kerala. Highly highly recommended.

I am a regular visitor of Kerala because I just love this place. Though I have been to Kerala many times, I have travelled less to the Northern Part of Kerala. I did a good research about the place online to find out that North Kerala was this stretch in Kerala that basically included Kasaragod which included Bekal, Nileshwar with the beautiful backwaters of Valiyaparamba, Kannur, Calicut, Wayanad, etc. I was over-excited and planned for my tour. I searched for the best tour operators in North Kerala and that’s how I came across Tyndis Heritage Travel India operating in Kerala with their base in Kannur. They are just the people you would need to travel with if you are planning to experience the soul of North Kerala! I researched about Tyndis and learned about the services they provided through their website. With many mails to and fro, I confirmed my North Kerala package called the ‘Flavours of North Kerala – Malabar Experiential Tour Package’ curated by Tyndis. Soon after my confirmation, I received my email confirmation with a full itinerary that included my airport pick-up details, accommodation in each place of North Kerala, transportation details, activities and experiences that I will be experiencing and even a list of things I should be carrying!
On my arrival at the Kannur international airport, I was greeted in the traditional way by Sujith, my tour coordinator. Sujith took me to my stay in Nileshwar. I stayed at a beautiful beach resort in Nileshwar called Neeleshwar hermitage. My coming nine days were packed with amazing experiences and stories.
In Nileshwar, I was taken to explore the Bekal Fort, Thaikadappuram village with fishermen islands and lots of village activities like toddy tapping, handloom, coir making, basket making, etc. I visited the Nileshwar palace and temple nearby. Theyyam experience was another highlight of the tour. I was taken to the nearby temple to witness the Theyyam dance. Tyndis had arranged for a special Kannur heritage walk called the Arackal trail covering the Kannur St. Angelo Fort, Chirakkal Weavers, Parassinikadavu Temple, Arakkal museum etc. The stories told by the storyteller Mr. Mohan were rich with the history and heritage of Kannur! Thalassery Biryani making session was a pure delight! I interacted with the local Muslim household in Thalassery. They explained the preparation of the local delicacy of the place – called the Thalassery Biryani! The stories connected with Thalassery and Mahe’s heritage were beautifully explained by Mr. Farhan – he is such a great storyteller! Next was Wayanad - one of the top destinations in Kerala. The tea garden experiences, trekking and storytelling village tour were amazing! Sujith and storyteller Sohal took me to the famous Edakkal Caves, Wayanad heritage museum, archery experience, etc. I could also interact with people in a Wayanad Tribal colony nearby. It was a rich experience in Wayanad for a first time visitor like me!
I reached Calicut on the 8th day of the tour. The Calicut heritage walk was a well-curated walking tour through the richness of Calicut’s heritage. Binusha, the storyteller, was well-versed with the stories of Calicut. She took me to the Calicut beach, Valiyangadi, etc. I enjoyed the delicious Calicut chips, Calicut Halwa and Calicut biryani!
It was on the final day of the tour that I visited Beypore. The Beypore Uru yard and Commonwealth tile factory visit were extraordinary. Tyndis curated each day of the tour with great care and making each experience memorable. The storytellers were not just guides - they were more than guides - people who had a passion towards their place and projected the culture and traditions of Kerala! The final stop in the tour was indeed one of the best things I have had in the whole of Kerala! The mangrove tour in Kadalundi. I was taken on a country boat through the Kadalundi River towards the mangrove forests of the place. It was a serene place with lots of migratory birds. I was introduced to a local person, who had immense knowledge about mangroves and birds. Sujith translated the details to me.
The canoe cruise took around 2 hours and it was already 6 pm by then. I reached back to my resort by 6.45 and yes that was it!! End of the tour. I relaxed for the night. Sujith joined me at the lobby next morning and we travelled to the Calicut International Airport. I couldn’t thank Sujith and Team Tyndis well enough for their efforts and arrangements for this tour! This review is a great appreciation for the whole team, coordinators and storytellers of Tyndis for putting sincere efforts in promoting community based tourism in a less touristic place like North Kerala! I like the way Tyndis approaches tourism - making each tour a greater experience rather than mere stay and sightseeing! The aspect of community interactions and local flavors are your own specialty! Above all, I was fortunate to have had college students and housewives as storytellers - what a great way of empowerment! You guys are definitely a model for the world to learn from! I will definitely be returning to meet each one of you!! This is a highly recommended tour for the one’s travelling to North Kerala!!

I got in touch with Naveen from Tyndis and after a few discussions I landed up in Kannur. What began was a truly amazing journey in the Malabar. As a filmmaker, I wanted to capture some of the stories that are unique to this place. Naveen understood the requirements and made sure I get to experience authentic stories with a flavour of North Kerala.
North Kerala is the next place to be - it is visually stunning and mostly unexplored. From what I could understand, this place will get to see more tourists coming in in the years to come. Good thing is that the locals are already aware of the harm unchecked tourism can do so they want to promote community-based tourism instead of big hotels and tour operators. North Kerala is the place to be right now!

It was a dream for a long time. A dream that never left since the age of 12. That is when I read "mayyazhippuzhayude theerangal", a very touching book that talks about Mahe of pre independent period written by the famous Malayalam author M Mukundan.

Somehow everything fell in place this Februvary. Other than my regular travel partner, my darling son Achu, this time a few colleagues also jumped the wagon and off we started for Mahe.

I had already spoken to the Tyndis team about our trip, about our time limitation and also about what we would like to prioritize. I was told everything would be taken care of as per our needs and let me tell you, they not only did that but exceeded our expectations.

Rooms were booked for us in Villa de 1945 in Mahe. It is an old, georgeous house converted into a hotel. We fell in love with the hotel at the first sight itself. The facade had a mixture of french and traditional kerala architecture. Rooms were large, elegantly done with all the facilities. The only problem you might come across here is that you will not find 24 hr room service which the hotel team say that they would be soon starting.

The first day included a visit to St.Angelo's fort in Kannur, Arackal museum and Chirakkal weavers in the forenoon. Fort was worth the effort offering us an insight into the history of Kannur. Arackal museum had a few relics from the only Muslim kingdom of kerala. The traditional architecture of the museum and its interiors are amazing. Chirakkal weavers was a wonderful experience. Here, the fabric is processed right from the yarn stage to the finished fabric. And the story of their fabric is amazing. I could not resist buying a saree.

Lunch at the Paris, Thalassery was an experience by itself. The slow cooked biriyani of Thalassery with all its delicate flavours was worth the drive back from chirakkal. We also tried their mussels. I have never tasted such excellently cooked mussels, their texture was amazing.

After a brief rest at the hotel, we set out on a walk to the Mahe pathway which was just about 5 minutes from the hotel. As I walked along the sculpted brief story of "mayyazhippuzhayude theerangalil", I went back to my teens. The tender emotions I thought I had long forgotten flowed in effortless. The hero of this book was my first crush. We could see that it was going to be a very beautiful sunset. To get a better view, we climbed the hill top. As I reached the top, I get a call from student, Vismay, who is a native of Mahe. He called to ask if I wanted to meet Mr.Mukundan, the author of the famed book. I could not contain my excitement. It was not even part of my wildest dreams. He took me to Mukundan's house. We were there for almost half an hour talking to him. And that was one of the most precious moment in my life.

Second day, we set out early. Breakfast was from a local eatery and it was good. We reached Kuroolikkavu temple by 9 am. In time for the end part of Bhagavathi thira. Then came the fiery majestic Ghantakarnan. He is believed to have originated from the neck of Lord Shiva. With fire burning at the end of sticks tied around the waist, tender coconut leaves adorning the upper and lower body, mask and elaborate face makeup makes him quite a vision. Then came Vasoorimala, goddess of small pox, believed to have originated from the forehead of Lord Shiva. Bright clothes in hues of red and intricate face makeup that takes several hours makes this theyyam a feast for your eyes.

There were several other theyyams to follow. But the heat and dust finally got the better of us and we left that beautiful village with a sigh.

Lunch was from National, a small roadside eatery with desks and benches. They serve some of the best seafood in the world. Do not miss this place if you are in Thalassery. They are very economical too..

I wish we had more time to spend.

Thank you Team Tyndis for this wonderful trip, for all your stories and definitely for the hospitality that you were so eager to extend...

I am never looking elsewhere when I make my next travel plan...
