What To Expect

Explore Cochin in full on an immersive 7-hour tour letting you experience the area both on land and on water. Start with an early morning pick up from your hotel in Cochin or Cochin Port and head to Aleppey to board a traditional houseboat that will take you on a relaxing 2-hour cruise through the picturesque backwaters of Cochin and past quaint little village areas — with plenty of photo opportunities along the way. At 12pm, take a break over a delicious Keralan lunch served conveniently onboard. At 1pm, the cruise comes to a stop and you hop into an air-conditioned coach for a quick comfy transfer to Cochin Fort. Once there, stroll along the streets, explore local shops and see Chinese fishing nets introduced by traders in the 14th century. The trip ends at 4pm with a transfer back to your hotel or Cochin Fort.
