Lijo is a young and innovative guide that is offering tours to places that other guides don't routinely offer.
The standard of his tours is as good as some of the more established agencies I experienced on my tour of Southern India - if not better. He is a mature and information guide that lives locally and has grown up there so is full of interesting facts and anecdotes about the local culture and lifestyle as well as the history of the region. He also has a natural warm way with people so made me feel instantly comfortable in his company.
I can totally recommend Muziris Heritage - Day Tours

We spend a day touring with Jose. We found him very knowledgeable and professional. He provided us with a lot of information about the history of the place and the present life in Cochin. He was very friendly, responsive to our interests and needs, and a pleasant person to talk to and spend the day with. We highly recommend him.

I was very impressed by the Jewish Heritage Tour run by Lijo Jose - I learned so much in an afternoon and found all the places that we visited very interesting. Lijo Jose was very knowledgable, friendly, quick to return phone calls, happy to answer all my questions, very punctual and professional. I would definitely recommend doing the Jewish Heritage tour especially as seeing all the different sites may be difficult as a traveller otherwise due to distance and the areas they are in.

We met Lijo in Cochin. He came to meet us at our hotel, and he was absolutely wonderful. We did two tours with him - the Jewish heritage tour, and a walking tour of Fort Cochin. I would unreservedly recommend both. Be aware though that if you're signing on for the Jewish Heritage Tour, you will be spending a lot of time in the car. Lijo himself (or Joe, as he likes to be known by) was informative, interesting, spoke amazing English, recommended great restaurants for us, and had lots of things to offer. If you are in Cochin, you NEED to look him up!

My husband and I had one short day in December in Cochin, from a cruise - 8:30 - 2 pm. Lijo was our well-groomed, enthusiastic, punctual, and experienced guide. He was flexible in his options where others were not. He arranged to pick us up with his driver and deliver us back to the ship in time, and took us on an array of sites in the surrounding areas. Compared with the cost of other operators in Cochin, Lijo's cost of $85 pp was excellent value for money, especially since it was just 2 of us for the day. We tipped both he and his driver well.

The highlight was a Kerala backwaters tour, which no one else on the cruise was able to arrange in the short time available However, Lijo did it for us, and did it in style. The covered longboat was waiting at the dock of the beautiful Vedic Village resort, and we cruised the enchanting backwaters in leisure for almost an hour. He was a font of information of every sort.

We then took a ferry with the locals - not a single other tourist was on the ferry boat - across the water to Fort Cochin where we visited several sites including temples, the Jewish Synagogue, and a chic cafe, Kashi, for coffee, chai tea, and the most splendid chocolate cake (recommended by Lonely Planet!)

All in all, a jam-packed and beautiful day, with the backwaters tour the most delightful way to spend an hour. We highly recommend the very professional services of Lijo and his excellent driver.
