Thank you for introducing the Malabar way of life to me. I witness how hospitable and peace-loving people you all are. In the age of stage culture, Tyndis heritage is striving to give authentic experiences and giving more reasons to visit the Malabar region.
I loved the market experience and halwa tasting experience the best and beaches are to die for. Very very very underrated!
Hope to visit Calicut again soon.

Thanks for a good morning sharing your knowledge of your home city. We visited markets, storage shops of all sorts of produce, mosques, and back alleys to understand how locals live. Binusha took some great photos of us too so we can remember our trip! Friendly and willing to answer questions.

I was was googling for historical sights to see while at Calicut and was fortunate to land up on the Tyndis website. Read through and booked a Heritage walk; and I am more than happy I did that.

The Tyndis team contacted me the previous day and briefed me on what to expect on the program I had selected, and also gave me an outline of what more they can offer in and around Calicut. This ice breaker was quite a welcome one; though I'm not a stranger at all to such impromptu trips and travels all around the world.

Binusha, story teller assigned for my Heritage Walk arrived at the meeting point on time and we set off on what was a thoroughly informative and enjoyable walk through the back alleys of Calicut. Binusha knew what she was talking of, and this easy paced walk around Gujarati Street, Valiyangadi, Silk Street etc was a very enriching experience.

I wish I had a bit more time on this trip. I'm very sure I'll land up in North Kerala again and do more of what Tyndis has to offer. My sincere thanks to the Tyndis team and a very special 'Thank You' to Binusha; I had a fantastic time.

A wonderful live introduction to the rich history and people of Kozhikode, to me and my daughter – better than any history text book! We came to know how and why Kozhikode became a melting pot of cultures, and how different communities have lived here peacefully over the years. We met with the unique Muslim community in Kuttichira, where the gorgeous Mishkal mosque and Juma Masjid stand. The majestic structure of the Mishkal mosque and its history left us in awe and respect of how secularism was/is actually practiced quietly in this part of the country. It was Diwali and the markets were closed, but our energetic story teller Binusha took us into the little by-lanes full of old shops, where ancient businesses of this region came alive in our imagination. We also caught a glimpse of how the famous Calicut halwa was being made. She was so committed, she took us again to the market the next day when it was open, and to the beautiful Matri Dei cathedral, also built in the time of the Zamorin. Walking the streets has its own charm but if you want to cover more places in the given time, you might want to opt for a vehicle, at least in parts. And to complete this dose of history, we enlightened our taste buds with the best chicken biryani and seafood at Paragon, and the most delectable pathiri, ela-ada,chicken pav, kalumakkaya (mussels) and all sorts of mouth-watering snacks found only in north Malabar, at this charming joint called Zains :)

I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the city, which felt like home with the Tyndis touch.

Being an Architect i was looking for a Heritage walk which emphasis on History, Culture, Food, People and Architecture of Calicut. TYNDIS Heritage walk was a true experience in form of story telling and covering all the things which i was looking for! I strongly recommend for those who want to explore the city in true sense and not just going for site seeing...

The heritage walk takes you close to the heart and the stories of the fort city of Calicut. The person who accompanied us (Ms Binusha) is a heritage enthusiast and is quite knowledgeable of the stories of the Land of Zamorin. For people intending know the city it’s people, food, culture and stories related to different communities, the heritage walk should be a mandate. They don’t rush the walk, but rather give you enough time to absorb the spaces and stories of the land

Tyndis tours was very friendly and flexible in arranging a replacement tour guide, Mr. Mohan, since their regular storyteller was not available.

Mr. Mohan shared his very wide range of knowledge in fluent English and enthusiasm. The mosque was definitely a highlight. The neighborhood and former harbour was given color through Mr. Mohan's stories and facts. Thank you!
