“Best shore excursion in cochin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2013

We enjoyed our tour with lijo jose very much. He is
very friendly and most informative. We learned a
lot about vegetation, ancient trees, the culture and life of
the people and the history of cochin and
greater India. He was also very flexible with
the itinerary even he added backwater tour. We will remember our tour with lijo as an excellent choice. JNR, Dallas, TX

“wonderful kerala tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013

What a wonderful tour! Lijo was very prompt in
contacting me to get an idea of what we wanted to
see. He offered multiple suggestions based on our
interests. Because we had only 4 days in kerala prior to our cruise from cochin, lijo
planned our itinerary to maximize the number of
sites we could see. We were very fortunate to see
all we anticipated. At each site, lijo gave a
brief history and background.one of the highlight of the tour was a plantation bungalow at periyar. I will definitely
contact him in the future!

“Cochin City Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2013

We visited Cochin on a cruise ship and I booked the tour with Lijo (he provided us with a different guide). The tour was wonderful. The guide showed us everything we wanted to see and more. Especially memorable was the synagogue located on the market street behind the pet shop. We would never have known it was there had not our guide taken us because he realized we were interested in the Jewish aspect of the town.

Our guide made sure we saw everything. He was informative, cheerful and generally wonderful. I would highly recommend a tour through Lijo.

“Excellent Day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2013

We booked with Lijo and received very helpful and prompt advice by email in selecting the right trip as I am unable to walk distances.
We had an excellent day which included a boat ride through the Kerala backwaters, a brilliant Tuk Tuk ride through back lanes, a first class lunch at a water front hotel and a ride through both the modern and historic parts of Kochin which included walking stops at a Hindu temple and also in what would have been the Jewish quarter. We found this very interesting.
We travelled in an air conditioned minibus which took us through villages and small towns so we had a really good 'flavour' of this part of the country.
Our guide knowledgable and extremely friendly. As we were on a cruise stop he managed to maximise our time and on reflection it's hard to believe we managed to do so much in the time we had!
On our experience we would highly recommend this company which really did exceed our expectations.

“Interesting tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2013

We had booked the Jewish Heritage tour with Lijo but had someone else take our tour; a group of 6 from a cruise ship.

Our guide was well-informed pointing out relevant sights as we drove, and giving good explanations at the Synagogues we visited; regrettably none are presently in use but can all be entered and viewed.

The backwater trip by boat was very interesting and most relaxing.

Unfortunately the planned lunch stop was cancelled and instead our guide took us to his home where we were served some fruit and tasty pastries.

It was a pity that we visited during the hot season, because it would have been much more pleasant walking around Jew Town if it was cooler.
