Description
  • Guided Heritage Walk Fort Kochi

    All the rich history of Cochin seems to concentrate in Fort Kochi. The area is unique with its bohemian feel. The blend of Dutch, Portuguese, British and Jewish influences still hover here in the buildings and the promenade here.  

    A guided tour into the heritage areas of Fort Kochi is the best way to understand the spice trade and life in the bygone era. Like all walking tours there is ample opportunity to pause, observe and understand the history as you walk from the waterfront to the streets with businesses and ancient homes, which are now converted into heritage hotels, homestays and boutique cafes. 

    The guide will give you an introduction into the history of Cochin and the main events that have shaped the city before the walk begins.
