      Great experience for kochi
      Bijus tours provided an excellent experience from beginning to end. The booking and pick up process was extremely efficient. Our tour guide Azad was extremely accommodating with our needs. He showed us all the important sights and also took us to local places to enhance our experience. Lunch place was delicious and extremely affordable. The spice place supported women’s initiatives was a great place to take us also. Azad did a great job to make our experience a positive one

      Tour of Munnar tea fields and surrounding area
      We travelled to Munnar from Kochi with our wonderful host Shajahan. He arrived on time and was fully accommodating of us throughout the trip with great view point stops and interesting facts along the way. The content of this trip was terrific and concluded with the interesting tour of the Lockhart Tea factory. We highly recommend this excursion and Shajahan as a host for any of your plans in the area

      Was a fun way to see the city and high lights of Kochi. Sudheer was a great guide and took us into places you could never see just walking around on your own. Worth doing and enjoyable!

      Great experience in Kochi
      We were lucky enough that Biju had openings to accommodate our group of 8 for a city tour. What a great day it turned out to be. Biju and his staff were professional and very informative. They not only took us to all of the highlights of the city, they took us to places the tourist would never see unless they were lucky enough to see the city with a local. The day was very hot and humid and the locals live this and they have a smile on their face. We were very grateful for the experience. Do your self a favor. Don’t pass up this opportunity with a great company! +91 80892 08010. On WhatsApp.

      Take this tuk tuk tour! Ask for Freddy 9011!
      This was probably the best tour we had in our 2 weeks in India. “Freddy” in Tuk tuk number 9011 had several obstacles to deal with as it was Palm Sunday and that limited our choices of places to visit. Still he took us to many places and sights, faces advice on places to eat, get massages, and had a great informative way of delivering information. His command of the English language was super and his main concern was pleasing us rather than to just work on his itinerary. Pickup from the hotel was spot on time as well.

      tuktuk tour through different Indian cuisines
      Great food tour around the different neighborhoods of Kochi by tuktuk, really nice guide that knows all the best local places. He customises the tour to your preferences so you have the best experience. As we did this tour on our last day of our 5week trip through India he really tried to find things we hadn’t tried yet. Would recommend!

      Amazing experience!
      The trip to Munnar with Abhi was fantastic! He was a great driver and guide, explained many things to us, was very attentive to where we should stop and also offered to take photos. We were able to decide how long we wanted to stay at each place. We had a great time, with wonderful views and very interesting insights about Ayurveda, spices, tea etc.

      A great afternoon trip
      Shaji and Kumar arrived early for our tour and were excellent hosts. We spent a full afternoon touring Fort Kochi, seeing all the scheduled stops, with just the right mix of informative facts and a few minutes free to wander around on our own. A thoroughly enjoyable experience and we would highly recommend.

    The walking tour with Biju is very very good! Biju showed us the main spots of Fort Cochin and Mattancherry and provided us with very interesting information on the history of the city and beyond as well as curiosities about the present daily life. He’s very well prepared, speaks clearly and has a nice sense of humor. We really enjoyed the time with him. If in Cochin, one should not miss this tour!

    We enjoyed this tour although my suggestion would be to get the guide to start in Jew Town and work back to the fishing nets. Then you are set up for the evening and can just wander off to a restaurant. Make sure you get the guide to stop for a drink in e middle.
    Our guide had very nice manner and it’s all the little asides that you get form a local person that make a guided trip really interesting.

    We took a walking tour in Fort cochi on December 27th 2023 with Biju tours.
    The guide was knowledgeable and polite. However there were aspects which we didn't appreciate. The most important was that their contact number was non existent and we had no idea whether anybody would show up. Email responses were slow.
    The pickup point was a once famous but now ramshackle place which had no sign posting - Kasi art Cafe.we found it with some difficulty.
    The guide Harald, was frequently on the phone during the trip. Overall a mediocre experience. It is possible our expectations were high from earlier reviews posted online and also the fact that the face of Fort cochin has disappointingly changed for the worse in the last couple of decades since I last saw it.

    We had an incredible tuk-tuk tour with Biju. At the start of the tour Biju said "I am passionate about my work and the history of this place", and that echoed through out the tour.
    My 16 year old son thoroughly enjoyed the entire tour and was impressed with both Biju's knowledge and the experience. Biju speaks excellent English (if that is a concern as it was for my son).
    I apologize for the delay in writing this review, but would like to take this opportunity to recommend (highly) Biju if you are considering a guided tour of Fort Kochi and Mattancherry.

    We had a short trip in Kochi and made the most of it. Booked a walking tour on trip advisor and was relieved to get a guide on a day's notice and on the New Year's Day 2020. BIJU our guide who is an independent guide and a born and bred local was very passionate about sharing his town with us. He was very knowledgeable and showed us the major landmarks and also showed us the local way of life weaving thru the streets on an auto. And he was very helpful with our needs. We like to thank and wish BIJU all the best and to stay passionate.

    We had the best tour of Fort Kochi. Biju is very knowledgable about the history of the area and provides the local perspective. He is very kind and courteous and goes out of his way to ensure his tourists are comfortable. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to experience and learn about Fort Kochi!

    Our guide Biju gave us an interesting tour of Fort Kochi. He was very knowledgeable and it was fascinating to learn the history and see the old colonial buildings. The tour was mainly walking but also included taking a tuk tuk for part of it which gave a welcome relief to sit.

    We saw places we would not have seen independently or by a tuk tuk tour, and were given a good insight into the history by Biju who had excellent English.

    We did a walking tour of Fort Kochi which took around 2 hours and then we took a round through Mattancherry from our vehicle. Mr. Biju is extremely knowledgeable and very friendly tour guide. He knows history of literally every building that you see around. Though he tells you lot of historical details, the tour doesn't become boring. Mr. Biju's passion and love for Kochi is quite evident and reflects in the way he show you his own town Kochi. He was flexible with our requests. He also booked Kathakali show tickets for us. Overall the experience was very nice and would love to do other tours with Mr. Biju in future!

    What a fantastic way to get to see the real Kochi! Biju was the most comprehensive guide and recounted childhood stories as we toured the town for 4 hours. We had the best time, learnt a load about Kerala's history and met some wonderful people. The highlight was the Spice Market and the Jewish quarter. Thank you Biju! Our trip is all the better for meeting you.

    We had a really good time on our tour. Our guide showed us hidden gems as well as the major sightseeing spots. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we could feel he really made an effort to give us the most out of the tour and provided us insights in the daily lives of people living here. He even spent one and a half hour extra with us since he wanted us to see as and learn as much as possible about Kochi and its history.
