We went in early Jan, 2016 on the Muziris Day Tour with Lijo. He is extremely well-informed and really loves what he does. This tour is for people who love history. We did the hop-on-hop-off ferry. Lijo knew pretty much every question that my family, all of whom love history, asked - and told us even more. The full Muziri... More

Lijo's tour was excellent. He included much more than the backwater cruise we were promised and it was a very full, very interesting day. The backwater tour was very safe and extremely interesting as you get to experience real life in India away from all the tourists. Lijo's price is very reasonable. We were picked up from the cruise port... More

He is knowledgeable about everything and found the best places for us. Just excellent. If I could give him 10 Stars, I would have done so. We highly recommend this company and Lijo... More

We used this tour company for private tours in each of Mangalore and Cochin. It was very well organised and gave us all we wanted. We were met at the boat by our guide. Perhaps the best part was having a conversation during the day with our guides as to life in India. We learned plenty. Both of the guides... More

This is a great 7 hour tour of the heritage area that was once the great trading centre of the global spice route prior to a massive flood 700 years ago that witnessed the creation of the backwaters and and the movement of the trading courts to Fort Kochi. You will see synagogues, Hindu temple, church Kochi palace and matrilineal... More

Joe’s passion and enthusiasm for the Jewish heritage sites in and near Kochi is clear, and he’s a great guide. He knows the area well, and he displayed a lot of flexibility with me as I changed my itinerary several times. He speaks flawless English, which is good to know if your primary language is English or your tour’s going... More

We had a wonderful day tour. I thought I had reviewed before but hadn't. We did a private tour 4 adults. Lijo looked after us so well. We visited all the major attractions and enjoyed the backwater tour on the boat. Only the four of us on the trip. Felt like the African queen on the boat! Everyone said what... More

Kerala has a great and reach history. The day with Lijo was a great way to learn more about it. We visited the Synagogues north of Kochi that are very well maintained and the visit there brings to light the heritage and unique tradition of the Cochini Jews. It is a must for world history lovers in general and for... More
