6 adults travelling together on a pvt tour with Biju. Such a professional guide and due to our change in the ships itenary. He was at the port a day early to met us. As WiFi on ships are so expensive we were unable to contact Biju but there was no need as he was there to met us at the terminal. Our tour was everything we expected and so much more. Our visit to Kerala and time in our Pvt house boat was so special as was our fantastic lunch. It was great to see the backwaters area of this area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Thank you very much for your wonderful feedback about the tour. Hope to meet you again Thanks

I booked the tour with Biju for our group of 8 people. But on the day of trip, my wife and I were not feeling well so we did not go. The remaining 6 people in the group who did the tour seemed to have had a good time especially the backwater boating experience. The only complaint they had was that the boating could have been longer (scheduled 3 - hour trip reduced to 2 hours). They highly regarded Biju as a great tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Thank you very much for your wonderful feedback about the tour. The boat tour was reduced to 2 hours only just because they reached one and half hour late after the immigration as they have to undergo medical screening at the cruise ship due to corona virus alert. Still I managed to cover all the places as mentioned in the itinerary. And they were very happy too. Hope to meet you on your next visit. Thanks

Our day with Biju was fabulous! He picked us up promptly at the port, provided van - w plenty of room to spread out, good ac and capable driver in India traffic! Went on backwater cocoon boat ride w amazing views, lunch, etc. Then Biju took us the backroads through small villages and to the old town of Kochi on the way back. He patiently stopped for photos and even surprised us with a Christmas cake (we were there xmas eve). Made our first entry to India amazing. Highly recommend Biju!

We, 3 couples in our 60th who visited Kochi by cruise ship, recommend Biju as a tour guide. He is well-organized, very polite and friendly. We were impressed with his professionalism. Biju made our visits to the selected sites easy by dropping us very close, helped taking great photos and allowed us to proceed at a steady pace without exhausting anyone. Thanks so much, Biju!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Thanks for your awesome review. Hope to meet you again Thanks Biju

Fabulous tour by an even more fabulous guide. Biju is a professional from A to Z. He was well-informed, energetic, flexible, and helpful. The group is very sensitive about specify food. Biju make sure that the meal prepared for the group will be at our liking. And we did had an excellent meal at the boat ride. We had a lovely day with him and felt we had a sound understanding of both Cochin, in general. We love the Kerala Boat Ride! It was an amazing place! We highly recommend Biju!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Thank you very much for your awesome review. I also enjoyed the day with such a lovely family. Your comments will definitely bring confidence in other travellers to taste Kerala food and experience Kerala tour with us. Hope to see you again. Thanks Biju

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Thanks for your excellent feedback. Reviews like this will definitely help the other travellers coming to my city to experience the same tour with me. It's your recommendations which gives us energy to maintain and improve our quality of service. Thank you once again. Biju

We enjoyed a full day with this guide Christmas Day and his driver.. He was there on time and the car was clean and comfortable. He was very knowledgeable about many subjects and clearly had a passion about his work and country. We went in a houseboat your which was relaxing and picturesque and the food served was tasty and fresh. We visited other sites with Biju constantly ensuring we were happy with everything. I would recommend Biju to anyone visiting this area... Well done and we miss your company

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Thank you so much so much for your awesome review. I also enjoyed your company. Hope we meet again soon. Thanks Biju
