A Recent Review of this tour

Joyce recommended great hotels for our tour of Kerala/Mudarai. We started with a guided tour of Cochin. On the second day Joyce took us to a fishing village which was quite magical before joining our boat at Alleppey. Distances between locations and poor road signs resulted in around 6 hours travel each day (sometimes missing lunch due to a lack of suitable places to eat). We averaged 2 hours of daylight per location after the first 2 days and we had not realised there would be so much travel time.
