“Best tour I have EVER been on”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2011

I choose to do the Kerela Life tour and was not disappointed, infact it was not only the best tour I did in India but the best tour I have EVER done anywhere.

I was lucky enough to have Joe my tour guide and his driver all to myself, they were both lovely, really informative, spoke excellent English, professional but fun. Travelling alone I felt completly at ease the entire day.

I was taken to many great temples, Indian weddings, st Thomas church, elephant park, backwater tour, the beach, and had the the lunch of my entire trip!

This tour really does show case kerela, and if you are there for a short time allows you to see a bit of everything.

I was able to sit back and relax, enjoy the scenery and also learn so much about this amazing area.

Thank you Joe so much for your time and your knowledge, I will be back for more of your tours for many years to come.

“GREAT way to see 7 synagogues in a short amount of time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2011

I don’t usually write reviews, too much to do, too little time. But my tour experience with MHTC and guide Jose is so awesome that it really deserves to be committed to worth and shared.

I was on a short trip over new years to Cochin and wanted to chance to see some of old Jewish sites and synagogues before I leave. I only had one day free on my schedule. With the help of MHTC, I could see the rare sites of historical importance in cranganore without any hustle and annoyances. Jose is a wonderful and knowledgeable guide. He showed Parur synagogue, chendamangalam synagogue, mala synagogue, Kadvum bagam synagogue, paradesi synagogue and Jewish -Christian ancestor tower, Jewish cemetery’s etc...

I think touring to these sites by buses or any other ways of transportation are virtually impossible for tourist.MHTC is the best choice of exploring the treasure house of Indian Jewish history, I highly recommend his initiative to promote this ancient Jewish settlement area and his Jewish heritage tour.

We had an excellent moment during the day trip. Everything was perfetc, Lijo takes care of you and explains everything you are asking. It's a moment "hors des sentiers battus", as we say in French, which means that you discover a lot of things that we uselly do not approach if we only see what is in the books.
Lijo takes as time as you need for everything you need : explainations, rest, visiting, meeting people, etc. It was a full-time discovery and very serious approach. We both did like very much this time.
