Discover a unique blend of diverse cultures, traditions and architecture during this scenic and informative tour of Cochin and Alleppey. Highlights of your half-day sightseeing include visits to historic Fort Cochin, the St. Francis Church, Dutch Palace and Paradesi Synagogue, along with some time at your leisure in the Jewish Town.

Later drive to Alleppey for houseboats. Once these were spice boats or rice boats which used to carry black pepper, ginger, cardamom, cloves, turmeric, and later cashew nuts, tea coffee, rice, rubber and coir. The spice boats now innovated into luxury houseboats for hosting tourists from world over. Made from teak it has caulked hull with bamboo roof. Bedrooms spacious for two and laid with Cambridge white bed linen and have attached powder rooms. This house boat meanders through the backwaters studded with coconut groves and lush green paddy fields. Paddy fields attract us as they lie below sea level. We can witness the life of villagers educated and prosperous on the banks.

A Recent Review of this tour

Very nice tour. The backwaters of Kerala are so different than the port cities along the coast. It is really a beautiful area. Joyce, our guide, was very knowledgeable and professional. He was eager to accommodate any of our needs.
