We loved our ride through the Backwaters of Cochin. Very well organised and a nice way to see a part of India. Was also good to have a boat ride to relax a bit.

Reviewer: Judi Ingham
This was my favourite excursion on my holiday. 15km cycling, then a leisurely canoe ride , then 10km more cycling. Lovely slow pace with plenty of stops for drinks. Saw lots of interesting things you wouldn’t see on a coach trip. Would highly recommend this trip.

Reviewer: Bob Blades
This cycling tour was the highlight of our entire 28 day cruise. It was great to cycle in a non tourist area and experience the day to day living of the local people. Bikes were very good and the tour guide was well organized and picked an excellent route. The sunset at the end was on a beach and was totally unexpected. English was good.
