My tour may have been a little different in that I was traveling independently through India. I contacted Lijo to get me to two specific festivals outside of Cochin. Having missed the elephant pooram that I originally intended to see, Lijo found another one that was contained in a very small town. Thoroughly enjoyed my time although I wandered around... More

Our day-tour of Cohin and predominantly the elephant festival was excellent! Our private group was met promptly at the ship port for a full morning of touring. Our tour included all the highlights of Cochin and a long ride out to the amazing elephant festival. The festival only occurs twice a year and we were very lucky to be in... More

We found Lijo by scrolling around on trip advisor and decided to book our shore excursions with his company. We happened to be in Cochin the day of the Elephant Festival and booked that. Although, it was a bit disappointing that we did not get to see the elephants all dressed up and there were only 5 of them, we... More

A highlight of our recent cruise from Perth to Dubai was the Jewish Heritage Tour we booked with Lijo Jose in Cochin, India. Lijo was a wonderful guide and the day he planned for us was full of delightful surprises and extraordinary experiences. We knew of the Jewish past in Cochin, but seeing the two synagogues first hand, meeting the... More

Lijo Jose started sending us e-mails probably from Cruise Critic postings soliciting our business for a private tour in Cochin a year before we arrived in India. We e-mailed over the course of 11 months about details of our shore excursion day in Cochin. We were supposed to be on a private tour with 2 other couples. As the day... More

I organized three tours with Cochin Day (Muziris Heritage) Tours for Cochin, Mangalgore and Goa. All three were excellent. I want to specially mention our guide in Mangalgore, Anup. All our guides were great, but Anup was special. Each port and tour was different with the houseboat cruise in Cochin, Mangalgore the cashew factory, temples and markets, and Goa, the... More

The guided tour conducted by Lijo Jose made our stay in Kochi most memorable. Without him we would not have seen that much in such entertaining and enjoyable way. I can only recommend booking him.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our heritage tour and our guide Lijo Jose was excellent. On the day we took the tour it was a Hindu festival day and we were lucky enough to see seven very grand elephants at one festival. Also at the Hindu temple we visited there were several weddings taking place and we were privileged... More
