“Another great tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

Having done three excellent tours with Mumbai Magic at the start of our holiday we were delighted to find that the same people also operate in Cochin where we unfortunately had to end our stay in Kerala. At short notice, Deepa organised an excellent walking tour with Mr Chester who was very informative and fun to be with.

“An Great tour arranged by a great company”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

We toured Cochin arranged by Deepa at Cochin Magic.
The guide was excellent. He met us off the cruise ship as arranged and made sure we got back before sailing!
His personality and knowledge could not be beaten, and as we found with similar tours in Mumbai and Goa with this company, the standard was very good.

“An awesome tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

The tour I had was the "backwater tour". It was interesting, nice and peaceful.The tour began at 8.00 am. They offer lunch that's mostly rice in a banana leaf and ended at 4.00 pm. There was a nice view of the sea, palms and the amazing canals between villages. We visited the villages and saw villagers producing domestic product.
We saw and tasted fresh cinnamon from their tree, how they grow the black pepper etc...


tips: Take a book with you to read on the peaceful atmosphere of the backwater

“Cannot go wrong”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Only having one day in Cochin, we used Cochin Magic and are so glad we did. The guide was very knowledgeable and keen to share his obvious pride in his country. The guide appeared to catch on very quickly to our desires and showed us some fascinating places and on request finished the tour in a safe local restaurant and asked him to join us so that we could have what he would have at home. A wonderful experience was had with good value for money and would not hesitate in using Cochin Magic again. Thank you for a great time.

“Excellent tour of Cochin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

My group loved this tour of Cochin by Cochin Magic. The itinerary planned was better than expected. WE had a lovely time in the garden of a local family when we anchored by boat, coconuts to drink and a banana fritter snack. The guide was flexible enough afterwards to take us to the Jewish section of Cochin as requested by one tour member and also took us inside the laundry where we had the best view of how this type of laundry functions.

As an independent tour leader from a ship I appreciated all the details ahead of time, ie the guide name, contact numbers, emergency contact numbers, etc. Very helpful

I highly recommend Cochin Magic Day tours, a wonderful port stop from a cruise ship.
