A very informative walk around Fort Kochi. Neetu shared a lot about the history of the city and also took us to some interesting galleries and sightseeing spots.

The tour was fun There was some lack of communication which led to the tour getting delayed. She had some great information to share but it seemed repetitive after a point. She didn't enter some places with us and asked us to observe by ourselves. Overall the tour was still fun and informative
