Pick up on time, clean good car, polite good driver. Boat staff didn't speak perfect english but enough that we understood each other. Relaxing cruise, decent Kerala lunch, we enjoyed a lot. Highly recommended,

We booked our tour through ShoreFox, but the paperwork advised that this would be the company that would provide the tour and they were excellent. Though the ship was late docking, our guide was still there waiting with a name placard, had a small minibus and driver waiting very close by and with only 2 other passengers aboard, we had... More

We were picked up at the port when our cruise ship docked and toured with Lijo Jose's company in 3 Southern India cities, Goa, New Mangalore, and Cochin. In all cases we found very similar tours to what the cruise line was offering at close to half the price. Enjoyed the 3 tours very much and found our guides professional... More

We booked day tours in Goa, New Mangalore and Cochin with Lijo before setting off on our cruise holiday. He is very efficient and responsive to emails. Information supplied was clear and we were very impressed that Lijo was on the dockside on each day to see passengers off. We also saw him when he collected the money on day... More

Lijo Jose has one of the best cab services. The driver 'Ajmal' was very good. Car was clean & well maintained.

Our backwaters tour on one of the beautiful traditional houseboats was nothing short of superb. It easily ranks as one of our most treasured travel memories in 40 years of travel on every continent. The tour agency's owner, Lijo Jose, is a most amiable chap and organized everything perfectly. This wonderful day was the absolute highlight of our cruise from... More

After recommendations from a travel agent friend, I booked tours in Cochin and Goa with Lijo during a recent cruise. In Cochin, Lijo met us at the port and everything went as planned for most of the group. I ended up needing some special assistance with a situation and Lijo jumped into action and helped me coordinate transportation as well... More

We booked with Lijo because he was so quick to respond. The tours were very inconsistent based on the expertise of the tour guide. We had a sweet student in Mangalore who seemed to be leading his first tour- not including all of the things on the itinerary, needing "special" permission to add a temple ( although we had more...

We were in Cochin on Christmas Day on a cruise and booked through Lijo for this tour. We ended up being 10 people on the tour and our guide was Nish. We saw 3 synagogues and learnt a lot about the Jewish community here. We did a backwater cruise for about 90 minutes, which was lovely. Communication with Lijo was... More

Excellent quick responses from Lijo, always willing to be flexible and accomodate last minute changes. The guides were friendly, professional and knowledgeable and we had a great time in both places.
