We had a wonderful tour in Kochi and really enjoyed the day. Shaheeer showed us the sights of Kochi together with his cousin. It was really great and we can highly recommend such a Tuk-Tuk tour.

Our driver Sajeeb was a great driver. He took us to lots of places and drove safely all the time. He was full of information. He took us to The Seagull where we had a delicious meal. We would recommend him and the Tuk Tuk tours. Always barter for the price.

Arriving at the Kochi port was extremely overwhelming, due to the swarm of people offering to be our tuk-tuk driver. Amidst the chaos, Ajee was the only one who politely and patiently waited to be approached. Not only is his English great, but his willingness to stop for photos or drive us unusually long distances during our stay is unmatched! My trip to Cochin was truly unforgettable and India ranks high on my list of favorite countries ever visited, thanks to Ajee. From taking us to a river where we swam with the local people to driving FOUR hours so we could climb the second highest mountain in southern India, Ajee provided the purest hospitality (ie. endless coffee, a disk of their local music, and gifts to send home). Truly magical.

Thank you, Ajee, for giving me the best experience I’ll ever have! I hope to see you again someday, my friend. 💜

My tuk-tuk driver, Mansoor Manaf, was very friendly and informative, super helpful! I asked if he knew where an Ayurveda doctor was, kind of an unusual request, I imagine, and he placed a couple of calls and took me to two places--when the first doctor wasn't available for my lack-of-any-notice visit, he drove me to another, who was available. I appreciate his determination in getting me to my goal. Mr. Manaf drove back to pick me up right after the visit with no delay. Also, when I first arrived where all of the drivers were, I was slightly overwhelmed with the many drivers walking right up to me. I chose Mr. Manaf based on his friendly, non-overbearing demeanor. Travel tip for all passengers--be sure to have your video going on your camera to get some action videos of the lively street traffic in Cochin!

We were arriving at Kochi by cruise ship, Costa Victoria, but only decided at the last minute what we would like to do. We contacted FORTKOCHI FTADA just the day before arriving, not even 24 hours notice, but the booking was confirmed quickly and easily and we received contact details quickly via whatsapp.

This is a tuktuk drivers association with 115 tuktuks so there is good availability, and they are very professional. Our driver was Sanoj - i cannot imagine better, and after several weeks of travelling in India and Asia, and experiencing many tuktuks, he was by far the best...knowledgable, flexible, perfect english spoken, polite and curteous.....and a safe driver in an almost brand new tuktuk.....very unusual!

Sanoj met us at the cruise terminal, with a nameboard. As you leave the ship and proceed to the terminal, he was by the barriers on the right side (where the buses for the tours wait) and not on the left where you see lots of other drivers and taxis touting for business, so it was a much easier and calmer way to meet.

He was charming and welcoming, and we soon were chatting about things we wanted to do, and things we didn't, and we had no problem changing the standard sight-seeing list. Nothing was a problem. Stop for an ATM or pharmacy, grab a drink, unscheduled stops for photos wherever we wanted. Sanoj came with us on several sight-seeing stops to explain some historical and cultural aspects. Other times he just waited for us, and was always parked very close by and watching out for us.

We had already decided on a restaurant for a good curry lunch after much research...."Rasoi", near St Francis Church. Rasoi turned out to be an excellent choice, very much recommended, great curry, big selection, very reasonable prices....under €20 ($25) for 3 people.

So 3 people for lunch?....thats because we enjoyed Sanoj's company so much we insisted he came with us for lunch (he was just going to wait outside for us otherwise)

Having done most sightseeing before lunch, we only had a couple of stops to make afterwards before a smooth return to the ship. We even dropped by to say hello to his family on the way back to the ship....we had kept him out for so much longer than planned I think they wondered where he was!

Overall we had Sanoj and the tuktuk for almost 7 hours, not the expected 4. At no time was there ever an issue, never suggested finishing early or having to pay more, everything was entirely done to suit us. We did of course pay him extra because of the time and he was worth every rupee/euro/dollar.

Sanoj took some photos for us, and also of us with his own phone and sent them via whatsapp before we could even ask. Real personal service, unbeatable.

So if you are planning to visit Kochi on a cruise ship from Costa, MSC, Celebrity, Regent, Silversea or any other, forget the bus tours or the tuktuks organised by the ship (more expensive, less time, no flexibility). Book with this organisation and have an experience like us. It has been one of our Indian highlights.

Sanoj and FORTKOCHI FTADA, it was a real pleasure, you will always remain in our contacts list and if we are ever lucky enough to come back, or know people coming to Kochi, we will be in touch immediately.

Good luck with the business, you deserve success.

Amazing day with Edwin, booked at the last minute while ship was docking and nothing was too much trouble. Edwin took us to all the places the guide books said to visit and some. He explained about all the places we visited and the christmas traditions, he even took us to his own home to meet his wife where she gave us traditional foods for guests on xmas eve. Would highly recommend.
