Sightseeing Tour, Including Historical Monuments and Backwater Boat Boating


Hello, my name is Khader and welcome to Cochin. I'm an experienced local guide in and around Cochin area.

I would like to share my knowledge and experience about Cochin with you all. 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 make 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. I can assure you that this Cochin experience will be memorable forever. You can also taste local delicacies such as curry rice and 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. I am very much proud to have been born in this city.

I look forward to see you in Cochin.
