      I recently embarked on my second outing with Tyndis Travels, a meticulously curated Nileswaram trip. Naveen, my key contact, skillfully crafted an itinerary focused on Theyyam performances and exploring heritage structures in Kasargod & Nileswaram. The schedule, collaboratively designed with local experts for Kaliyattam events, was flawless. Seamless networking for accommodation, transportation, and a knowledgeable guide familiar with temple schedules ensured a trip without a hitch. Tyndis Travels delivered a thoroughly enjoyable and well-coordinated experience. Highly recommended!

      Wonderful experience
      Good knowledge to learn multiple groups of people integrated Kozhikode since more than 1,000 years ago. Could enjoy many sceneries with clear explanation which I never get without this tour.

      Temple visit, scenic walk, and guide's kindness throughout the tour.
      Sreekanth, has been incredibly kind and attentive throughout our visit. He took us to visit several magnificent temples and showed us picturesque alleys that we would never have dared to explore on our own. His clarity in explanations and patience in answering all our questions made this experience even more enriching. We are grateful to have had the chance to benefit from his knowledge and company during this tour. Thank you, Sreekanth, for this unforgettable experience!

      A lovely day in Calicut
      Really interesting, informative and enjoyable tour. We combined it with the punting tour of the mangroves at the Kandalundi bird sanctuary. Calming after the heat and bustle of Calicut. Easy to combine if you have a car and driver. Try and start the walking tour of Calicut as early as possible due to the heat.

      Don't do it
      Terrible experience after booking a mangrove tour for 2 using this TripAdvisor site almost 24hrs in advance! Despite information about the tour saying 'reserve now & pay later' I was required to provide credit card details to complete the booking and the payment was subsequently drawn from my linked account. I subsequently received an email from TripAdvisor confirming the booking but advising it was pending confirmation by the operator - which may take up to 3 days! There was no indication of this potential delay in the tour information - which may take up to 3 days! We duly arrived at the designated meeting point in Kadalundi Bird Sanctuary next morning in the hope that the tour would be delivered, only to be told by staff and other operators that they had NEVER heard of this tour operator! No-one answered the contact number for inquiries to the supposed operator that were provided in the TripAdvisor booking confirmation despite repeated calls over 30 minutes, including by concerned officials from the Sanctuary. The number came up as belonging to Jays Inn, not Tyndis as advertised. It seems this tour page may be a scam. Ultimately we took a great tour with another operator for a fraction of the price we had paid for the boat tour that was NEVER DELIVERED!

      Well worth it!
      The experience was wonderful. It exceeded all our expectations. Our guide Sreekanth was so knowledgeable, patient and enthusiastic. We discovered places we wouldn't even have known about if we walked around on our own - a halwa making kitchen, a coconut oil making facility etc!

      Insight into the stories that make Calicut
      This was not like a normal tour, it was the story of a city that you'll never experience or read about on Wikipedia. The storyteller Sreekant took me through the streets of Calicut, revealing the stories that made up the streets and buildings in a way that made everything come alive. The meandering nature of the walk felt like I was back in time and here in 2023 at the same time. He answered all my questions, introduced us to local vendors. It amazed me at how ancient the international trade in Calicut is and how old and instrinsic the multicultural harmony is to its identity. I am so glad I found this company and I look forward to other experiences in the future.

      The best planner hands down
      Naveen was a dream to work with. He was responsive, proactive and planned the trip to perfection. He not only allowed changes but encouraged it so that we get the best experience for me and my fiance. All the hotels were top class and every stay was a picture perfect. Most of all, the staff and contractors he hired were very polite and courteous. Our driver Umesh is probably the highlight of the trip. He made it so special with his warm personality. He made extra effort to ensure we are taken care of EVERYWHERE we went. We have made a friend for life. I still text him even after 6 months. He's a great man. Naveen was the best thing that happened to us when my fiance and I were trying to spend some quality time together before we tie the knot. Now we are happily married and have a lot of great memories from our 7 day trip that Naveen planned to perfection. Thank you Naveen. I was sceptic when I first booked the trip reading the reviews thinking those are fake and all as I was flying in from Washington DC. But all the positive reviews are actually true. He is truly the best. I am so thankful for the time you spent in planning our trip. I'll be using your services again and again coz my wife wants us to make a trip to Kerala for our anniversary. I highly recommend Naveen and his company. Ask for Umesh as your driver if you wanna make your trip memorable. Make sure you ask him to play his music in the drive. He loves classical music and it really goes well with the trip in his gods own country Kerala. Cheers

      A whistle stop tour of Calicut history, culture and food
      I m so glad we took this tour on our first visit Calicut. Our storyteller - Rajeesh - was an energetic and passionate local with nuanced knowledge of the city nooks and corners. Well versed in the history and culture of the city, he ran the tour at a relaxed but efficient pace. We spent good time at the key temples, churches, mosques in the different quarters of the city. He also gave us a superb insight into the most famous food of the city - halwa, chips, biryani, pickles etc. He took us into the bylines where these things are actually made - he knew the owners of these paces and took us deep inside the kitchens to see, for instance how is the famous Kozhikoden halwa made. For our next trip, I ll definitely sign up for some of their other tours! Keep it up Team Tyndis!

    This is the best experience of Fort Kochi on a tuk tuk.. We got to travel in an offbeat common man’s ferrari in style! Karthik the pilot of the tuk tuk is a real rockstar in his 40’s! Amazing man with sound knowledge about the heritage and culture of Fort kochi. Tyndis cochin tuk tuk tour is undoubtedly one of the best cochin sightseeing tour in my opinion.. Definitely recommend this tour for the quality service and amazing scope for sightseeing!

    Booked this tour through TA in fort kochi. The tuk tuk driver Mr. Karthik picked us up from our hotel. He was a pleasant gentleman with a smiling face. The stories shared by karthik made me and friends walk past through time - to the history of the place. The beach and the old church was beautiful. The traditional lunch at the kerala hotel was delicious and amazing! thanks to karthik and team for this experience! We highly recommend this tour in Kochi!
