Tour: #16514, Houseboat Excursion in Kerala backwaters. Ideal for cruise ship passengers, customized for Ruth Gilbert., Kochi, Kerala, India    view tour
Date: Apr 19/18

Joyce was an excellent guide. He took me to places not frequented by tourists as I asked him to. On the way to the houseboats in Alleppey he showed me a fishing village where people had come to buy the fish just brought in. He also hired a houseboat just for us with a wonderful meal prepared on the boat. There are lots of tourists on the canals in houseboats, of course, but he explained a lot about the area, being very frank. We stopped at Fort Kochi on the way back to Kochi to see the Chinese nets

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you...when one choose Toursbylocals for a tour we know the trust put on us by travelers. I personally take responsibility to meet all preferences of my travelers.

Fantastic way to spend the day from Cochin - high quality houseboat with excellent lunch and friendly staff. We found the driving in Kerala a little disconcerting but overall an excellent experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yes, the roads here are now congested because of construction of Metros connecting towns. we are all waiting. All work will be over in six or seven months. Thank you for bearing with us.

Tour: #393689, Kerala and Madurai Highlights, Kochi, Kerala, India    view tour
Date: Feb 13/18

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The hotels I have suggested was at the familiar route. The hotels chosen by the guest was at locations far away which I was not frequented. This resulted in deviating me from concentrating in my job of giving information to finding the way to the chosen hotels and long drives. Coupled with this the usual road from Munnar Thekkady is closed for maintenance and hence to we had to take bad roads. When at one place thus had to take long drives and delayed arrivals programs delayed on the following days.

Joyce was an excellent guide. He planned a private houseboat tour for us on the Backwaters of Alappuzha that included a wonderful south India lunch including several curries, fish and chicken as typical in the region. We wanted a chance to buy spices on the way back to the ship and he took extra time to take us to the spice market his wife goes for her spices that probably never had a tourist in the place. The total cost for out party of 4 was considerably less than the ship's tour and very personal.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My clients are my strength. When they appreciate my efforts to give them the best, they realizes my passion and enthusiasm. Thank you Toursbylocals to providing me the opportunities.

I was a little disappointed in the plan

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: To my knowledge and conscience I have fulfilled each and every demand of the shooting team except where we needed permission from authorities to shoot film. I have made it clear in the fist instance itself it will not be possible to obtain permission from India authorities in a short notice time. The film shooting team could not shoot the tea factory where it is impossible to get permission to shoot a film. May be this was the reason Mr. Omar Alothman was disappointed.

Tour: #16447, Cochin Delight Shore Excursion For Larry Ng and companions., Cochin, Kerala, India    view tour
Date: Dec 1/16

Joyce was able to find us a very good restaurant for seafood. However, there seemed to be lack of communication between Joyce and us as he was quiet most of the time (in the car or walking on the streets). The Backwater tour was very disappointing as there was not much to see and the water smelled really bad. Also, it would be interesting if Joyce explained more at the Chinese Fishing Nets site and might be arrange to have the local fisherman to show us how to operate the nets.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The boat rental charges were not included in the price of the tour. I was not able to include it because the the boat rental will vary on certain days as per the day's demand for the boat. On the 1st Dec. there were two cruisers arrived in kochi and there were more travelers doing the boat ride in the backwaters. The boat rental I had to bargain with the supplier and actual rental for the day asked by him was 1300 INR.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: ToursByLocals can confirm that the boat charge should have been included in the overall cost and that the boat charge has since been refunded to the customer.
