Our flagship tour, a favorite for the inquisitive traveller who wants to do more than the usual. This tour is a must-do for anyone who wants to understand the history of Cochin from scratch. From being called the 'Emporium of the World', Cochin received the rare distinction as the 'Queen of the Arabian Sea' and in modern times the city transformed itself to become one of India's major tourist hubs and a contemporary art capital still bringing travellers from far and wide. The walk will take you along the remnants of the old European fort town, some of its streets rich with fables of yore and the iconic people who left a mark and changed the course of history as we know it. We sift through 3000 years of the city's past through stories, anecdotes, architecture, culture, food and the people who made an impact in the growth of the town.
The tour can be ended with a sumptuous curated meal at a local eatery. See Lila Fort Kochi Food Connection.
