Khader V.

Cochin, KERALA, India

Hello, my name is Khader and welcome to Cochin. I was born and brought up in Cochin, India, close to the Cochin Port (the Queen of Arabian Sea) and I'm an experienced local guide in and around Cochin area for the last 18 years.

I have worked in cargo ships & fishing trawlers for about 20 years along with people from many nationalities including Americans, British and Japanese.
I would like to share my knowledge and experience about Cochin with you all.

I am well versed with English & Japanese. I have Guide License granted by District Tourism Promotion Council (DTPC)Cochin which is under Department of Tourism, Government of Kerala State, India. I have got a lot of appreciation letters from various travellers who have been guided by me from all over the world.

Cochin is the farm-green commercial town of Kerala and one of the finest natural harbours in the world. The harbour is the nucleus around which has grown to become the "Queen of the Arabian Sea". Once a major center for commerce and trade, the British, Arabs, Chinese, Portughese etc; have all come to its shores in search of exotic spices and sandalwood even today. Cochin continues the tradition of welcoming visitors with its customary warmth and hospitality.

The backwaters extending to the East and South from the harbour are dotted with tiny islands formed naturally by alluvial deposits from the rivers. Cochin was able to offer in abundance the best of spices to the world, a reputation that continues to this day.

As I am very familiar with the nook and corner of this city I can show you each and every historical monuments, and can explain their historical importance and legendary stories that makes Cochin much more interesting.

Besides there are places in Cochin which are not familiar but interesting which I can show you and you can experience it as a local.

You can also taste local delicacies such as curry rice & sea food.

What I like about my native city Cochin is its cosmopolitan nature with different ethnic people and you can see different culture in such a small local area, which is amazing and very rare to see in other places and I am very much proud to have been born in this city. The climate is also very pleasant.

My Tours are flexible and open to customization.

I invite you all to enjoy these experiences of Cochin and you are all welcome.

I am looking forward to meet you in Cochin as a Private Tour Guide and Escort.
