I am graduated in commerce and also have a certified tour advisor certificate from the District Tourism Promotion Council (DTPC). Also attended Resource Person training done by Responsible Tourism Mission, Kerala state. I am able to speak English and Hindi fluently.
Kochi is a small port with a radius of 4. 5 Sq. km.
There are many interesting places to see :-
Dutch palace- Nearly 500 years old museum under archeological survey of India,
Jewish synagogue, only Jewish church where prayers is been performed,
St Francis Church, also known as Vasco De Gama Church, the first European church in India
The famous Chinese Fishing nets still in use
Traditional Bazar Market, where all the ancient trading has been done
These are just some of the interesting sites to see, and there are many others. I'm happy to customize a tour for you, and we can work together to create your ideal tour.
Kochi is rich enough with her existing remains of the ancient European colonial era to attract travellers from different parts of the world. You can also observe different types of cultures and religions, and there are also more than 30 communities and people living together in the same city.
As a local expert from the city, I am well versed with all the local streets, local people, historical monuments, local shopping areas, spice warehouses etc. I am ready to organize any type of tour as per your interest, taxi tour, tuk tuk tour, backwater tour etc. . . .
I look forward to meeting you, and sharing the best of Kochi.
A Recent Review of this guide
When you tour an area with someone who really loves that area and wants to take you to come away feeling the same.......you are a really lucky tourist. Biju was that kind of guide.....I remember Hugh Jackman in "The Boy from Oz" after a great number he would run back on stage and say "You want more?" And then give us more. Biju is that type of guide.... His knowledge of Cochin, Kerala was only exceeded by his flexibilty and protective nature. It was a wonderful day.
