In 1341 AD, nature has one of the things she can do best: create and destroy in a beat. The port of Kodungallur, north of Cochin, was destroyed when the Periyar river flooded, and in its place a new port was born. Today the port of Muziris is a very important natural harbor and one of the most beautiful on the west coast of India. This port has 2000 years old links to both Chinese and Arabian sea traders and is rich in history both culturally and mentally. The Jewish had been present in Cochin since 388 AD, and the Apostle Thomas brought Christianity in this area in 54 AD.
Particularly convenient for those on a cruise tour, this is an opportunity to see Cochin closer, as well as in the natural splendor of Cochin backwater. Both the old and modern are presented on this tour.

Our tour with Lijo was a wunderful experience. Besides discovering Kerala's backwater, we got the unique chance to join a Hindu festival and other religious spots. Jo is very friendly & open-minded guide with a very good historic background and knowledge. He offered us an individual sightseeing tour without being typical touristy. Although we only had one day to visit this part of India, we were deeply impressed by this country, its people, different religions & excellent food. A tour with Jo is a must.
