With only a day in Fort Cochin, I wanted to see as much as possible and Neetu has designed a great route to show you some of the highlights, from spice market, to the Jewish town and some interesting sites and facts in between. I especially enjoyed the spice market visit, where she helps you buy great quality goods out of the tourist zone, a great experience !

I enjoyed the tour and had a really nice time listening to the unique stories and asking questions, for which she always answered enthusiastically. I glad I could learn many things from her about Fort Kochi and Indian culture in general.
