        Definitely go!
        This was a highlight of our experience in India. We watched the dancers put make up on for a few minutes prior to the show, and we’re exhilarated by the colors, music and dances.

        Excellent experience
        We got there early to witness the makeup artists at work; it was totally worth it. As the performance has no words and thus requires facial emotions, they showed how effectively the eyes can be employed. The show was captivating and perhaps the perfect time for tourists. I really liked the drums in the music.

        Awesome Experience
        One of the best places to go if you only have a short amount of time to see the culture of Kerala. Here, you can see the tradition of Kerala in the form of dance and acting. They will prepare and put on their makeup in front of you so you can see how the fascinating dancers of Kerala do their makeup and look. This is a must-see location if you are in or near Kerala. It takes about two hours to learn about the culture and tradition of one of the oldest communities in India.

        Amazing
        When the performers sit in front of you on stage, doing their makeup with tiny hand-held mirrors and the lightest of touches as they morph their facial characteristics, you are drawn into the show from the time you enter the theatre. After about 30 minutes, the dancers leave the stage to be replaced by the musician with his enormous drum, who then joins in with the presentation of the amazing eye movements and hand gestures used to portray the emotions that are continually changing during the performance. Immediately after that is finished, the dancers return to the stage fully costumed in their ornate costumes and make-up to bring a mythical tale of princes and demons to life. One that should not be missed!

        Amazing Experiance
        A really essential experience for any tourist to Cochin, this fascinating and amusing evening! It's possible to arrive at 5 o'clock and observe makeup being performed, which is incredibly fascinating. A brief excerpt of Kathakali is then shown after a demonstration of the dance's symbolic connotations. A must watch!

        Great trip, well organised
        I booked a package to be picked up in Kochi to go to Munnar and do the Kolukkumalai sunrise walk. It was a great experience: my driver was great, very knowledgeable (and a good photographer): he would suggest certain sights and shops on the way from Kochi to Munnar, making the long drive fun and entertaining. Kolukkumalai at sunrise is gorgeous! And the tent stay was fun as well (pack warm nightwear!) - and the food delicious!

        Beautiful
        The makeup, the intro to Kathakali and the performance, all three together created a beautiful narrative.

        New and One of a kind experience.
        Amazing experience witnessing the kathakali art. They give you a script prior to the show. I strongly suggest reading it before the play starts since kathakali means story play (without voice) so in order to understand what the artists are trying to show.

        Memories together
        It was a great experience with my family, after almost 20-25 years we cherished our memories together. Sunrise was phenomenal and my daughter enjoyed the beach.

        One more off the Bucket List
        First of all don't plan it on a Monday as some attractions are closed. But being said that the travel operators and especially the driver Mr. Mohan were very accommodating. All in all great experience.

        Super Houseboat and candid lunch
        We have had a backwater cruise recently with Expertise Travels. My husband and I were a little worried about the pandemic all over the world but later thought to have a break from all the frustrations. The cruise was awesome and we were picked up from the airport and boathouse was at Alleppy. A candid lunch was arranged and fortunately, there was no hurry berry moment everywhere. Thank you Expertise for a wonderful tour

      I along with my 3 children and husband had approached Expertise Travel for a one day beach tour as my children are crazy about swimming and I felt beach would be the best relaxation point. My children loved making sand dunes and sand palaces and I loved all four of them enjoying their weekend in the water. The time invested in the beach was extraordinary. A normal beach added a lot of love and affection in our family ties. I would like to thank expertise travel for being a part of the tour, as your planning and performance added a lot of value to our tour.
