“Best Backwater Rafting Tour in Cochin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

I went with three different tour operators on Backwater Rafting Tours BUT the one with Tourist Desk (it's name of the company) were the best. Guide gave very informative commentary though he asked in the beginning of the tour only to give him tip if you are happy, which is annoying BUT still I will recommend this tour. It cost only Rs. 850 per person which includes all the transfers and lunch

Other tour operators guide were not informative and tour didn't took to nice places as Tourist Desk took, it was waste of time and money

I will highly recommend to book with Tourist Desk www.touristdesk.in

“Amazing Tuk Tuk Driver!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

I have never reviewed a tuk tuk driver before, but our first day in Ft Cochin we hailed a tuk tuk and luckily for us our driver ANAS turned out to be fantastic. He knew the city and all the attractions and every short cut and all the shops. But more importantly he was dependable and really SMART. yes, he tried to take us to a couple of stores where he "got points" but he was totally upfront about it and if we didn't want to go to those shops he was cool. He drove us for two days and when we told him we were returning in 10 days , he was waiting for us at our hotel ready to rock and roll. When we started for the day we gave him a verbal list of what and where and as we started getting tired and forgetful or changed our plans, he was totally on it. His mobile
phone # in Frt Cochin is 9847138556. His English is acceptable and truthfully, he helped make our days in Cochin a laugh riot. ANAS ' Friendly Tuk Tuk" says his card…and he's great. when we asked the price at teh end of the ay, he said "As you wish" I usually hate that, but we paid him generously ( about $20 USD for 4-5 hours)…and everyone was happy

The place where Vasco-da-Gama was buried in kochi is the St. Francis church which was built in 1506 by the Order from the Raja of cochin. But in 1526 when He died the God Has given the chance to keep the Body in the God's Own country. Then it has been removed.

“Day trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Kochi is nice city ruled by many having few attractions. One can see Chinese fishing net, Church where Columbus was buried, Jewish Synagogue. The most attractive part is cultural art show. This show if for people who like Kerala art / style of dancing Kathakali and other dance forms arranged by art and cultural gallery in Kochi Fort area. It is a MUST watch.
