Private Driver Guide - Half Day

On this exclusive tour, you'll have the freedom to explore Cochin with an English-speaking guide who will drive you to interesting landmarks, on your schedule.

A lucrative and vital port since Roman times, Cochin features Dutch, Portuguese, British, and Jewish influences, continuing to make the city appealing today. Unsurprisingly, Cochin's religious structures portray the many influences.

There are a bevy of landmarks to visit. Below is a selection you might consider. Have your driver escort you to the legendary Chinese fishing nets brought in the 16th century by Kublai Khan's court, then observe the nearby village, designed with strong English influences.

Next, you may wish to see the Church of St. Francis, which provides architectural proof of a Portuguese presence. Nearby is the Santa Cruz Cathedral, submitting its Indo-Romanesque-Rococo design into Cochin's multicultural architecture.

Then, there's the Paradesi Synagogue, which you could explore prior to visiting the eclectic shops in a Jewish enclave nearby. Travelers with a flare for independence will find this private Cochin tour enjoyable. Book today for an unforgettable India excursion.
