“Great tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Overall, the tour provided was excellent! My colleague and I were looking for a good one-day tour of Cochin and based on the recommendations of this web page and speaking with Lijo, we decided to book a tour with him. We covered a lot of ground in one day and would not have been able to do so on our own.

If you are looking for a high-quality tour and to make the most of your time in Cochin, definitely contact Lijo. You will also be very pleased!

“What a difference a guide makes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Sure, you can go on you own. You can get an auto-rickshaw driver to cart you around to the synagogues in and around Cochin for as little as 200 rps (if you are a good negotiator). Then, printed wikipages and guidebook in hand you can have a look around and each place. You won't have wasted your time...

...BUT you will have wasted a unique opportunity to see the Jewish heritage sites around Cochin and to learn the history and social context of jews in India from a true expert. Jo is a first rate tour guide. He has a depth of knowledge that is unusual in a tour guide. He can tell you about dates and events of course, but he can also put it in all in context- religious, social, economic, political. Moreover, Jo can introduce you to members of the tiny (<30) remaining community so you can hear their stories first-hand.

Knowledgeable, punctual, organized- a great tour guide an a great tour.

Jo has great passion for his city and its Jewish heritage.

“The Synagogue tour outside Fort Cochin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Lijoys ' tour of the oldest existing synagogues around Cochin was fascinating.He was not only very know legible but also very friendly,informative and generous with his time allowing us to speak to one of the few Jews still living around Cochin.There were 3 of us on this tour and we thoroughly enjoyed the company and felt very fortunate to have Lijo as our guide,and would not hesitate in recommending him.

“Jo was the perfect tour guide & very helpful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013 via mobile

The tour was very interesting with the temple celebrations as a bonus due to the time of year. The lunch was lovely and the boat ride very relaxing. An overall enjoyable experience amongst the fabulous locals.
