Day trips from Cochin

Hi All

Can you get day trips in small groups from Cochin to various places?

Or can I hire a taxi for set hours on daily basis and choose where to go etc. This would be like from 9.00 am to 9.00 pm.

I am looking to book Cochin Palace Hotel. Any comments please.

Thanks in advance.

Dear Indokarasan,

If you are ready to travel in Public transport there is no need of Taxi .We can access almost every tourist spot in cochin.

For hiring taxi it will be rs 1500-1800 for Ac Indica or indigo.You can travel 150KM/day.If your traveling exceeds 150km for additional km you should pay Rs 9/ KM.

Thanks

Thank you for your reply

Would that be for around 12 hours of hire? I would prefer it for the full day with unlimited miles etc.

Hello indokarasan,

a day for CAB is 8 hours ,if you use after that you pay the night allowance .

Tata Indica is comfortable for 2 pax .if your pax strength is above 7 you may hire a Tempo Traveller, they come with seating capacity 11 seater , 14 seater , 17 seater etc

but generally in the case of sight seeing tours or holiday package tours , they go by kilometer more than hourly basis

say for eg: if you are planning to do a day trip to Alleppey for houseboat cruise, you may travel 130 Kms up and down from FortCochin ( assuming that is where you are based)

so they charge you 2200 / 80 kms for A/C and additional KM ( 70 KM in the above case) chargeable by Rs 16 per KM . now since you are arriving by 7-8 PM back ( from Alleppey after the boat cruise ) you may pay an extra Rs 250 as night allowance

you can also rent it on hourly basis and go where ever you want to , in that case if you exceed the minimum kilometer and minimum hours they charge you based on the extra hours or extra kilometer, which ever is higher. extra per hour is Rs 250 approx

I agree with contacting Lijo Jose from Muziris Heritage Tours he is able to custom tailor anything you need, and will show you amazing things you might not even know about. His rates are good and his English is great. I have now used Lijo 3 times on various trips to India.
