An Amazing day tour at kochi!!
Was planning to write a review for tyndis after experiencing tyndis day tour in kochi.

1, I would like to appreciate the story teller- Mr. Midhun For reciting the hidden history of fort kochi and accompanying me to all the historic spots Which i always had a plan to visit. We went to few cafes and well recommended one is pepper house.

2. Was quite lucky to be there at the fishing spot and got a chance to join the fisherman and experience the Chinese fishing net. There were also small eateries specialized for seafood where you can experience live cooking of fish. I tried the authentic kerala style Thava fish which was truly delicious.

3. By evening we went to Iringol kavu which is really a must recommend Place where we did an amazing walk through the sacred groves.

Once again thanks to the entire tyndis family for being so passionate about what they are doing and special thanks to Midhun for being an awesome story teller.

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!

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!

On the day before departure from Calicut my family and I decided to go on a Tyndis Tuk Tuk Calicut tour , and boy oh boy I’m glad we did! We had the best time with Tyndis, both IN the actual - top down – tuk tuk as visiting the heritage and history of Calicut. Everything from booking, to itinerary to confirmation went smoothly. My nephew is 3 so we did a customized route and reduced the time of the tour to 2,5 hours. We had two tuk tuk with us + One storyteller. This storytelling tuk tuk tour took us to beach site, Old streets and Busy Indian Market, Local food place, Halwa (Sweet dish) making place, Old church and mosque .Both storyteller and driver was very friendly, spoke English very well and was the sweetest thing to the little guy. Good knowledge on sites also. All in all a GREAT afternoon. I'd definitely recommend this tuk tuk tour to everyone planning to experience the real Calicut .

I had a great day with our storyteller Sohal and Abu. I was searching for something unique to do on my next day in Wayanad and that’s when I came across the Wayanad village tour with a storyteller offered by Tyndis. I checked the description and was fascinated by what was offered. The price was cheap as well. I booked the tour for next morning – they arranged things quite well within the short notice!
I was packed for the day. Sohal joined me at the entrance of the Edakkal caves. We experienced the famous caves and headed to the tribal village nearby. It was an overwhelming experience for me! Tyndis has curated this tour to a next level with amazing stories and lots of local essence. I interacted with the tribal people, took snaps with them and they sang tribal songs for me! What a feeling!
Sohal next took me for a walk through the rural roads of Ambalavayal – a beautiful village. I shared stories about Wayanad’s agriculture, the varieties of rice grown, the livelihood of farmers, etc. In some random farm midway, I even exchanged ideas with a labourer who didn’t understand English and I didn’t understand a word of the language in which he responded! All thanks to Sohal for translating things for us!! Sohal was extremely informative and spoke great English.
Our next stop was at the heritage museum in Ambalavayal – it is better known as Wayanad heritage museum. It is not so well organized. A basic gallery of Wayanad’s archaeological artefacts. But again, Sohal came to help with his knowledge and connected it with the mythology and tribal folklores of Wayanad – that amazing skill of a storyteller! Another highlight of this tour was the visit to this superhero called ‘Govindan’! He is the master archer of Wayanad! Such a kind soul! Govindan was so passionate about his job that he spent years together in preserving the craft of tribal archery. Govindan invited me to try my archery skills – I’m happy that I could impress him!!
What a day…What a great tour of Wayanad!! This tour was just the kind I was looking for – right amount of stories, right amount of descriptions, well organized, amazing local experiences and hands-on activities! Couldn’t ask for more! Brilliant effort team Tyndis!! Impossible to recommend these guys too highly. My day in Wayanad was one I will never forget.

Thank you so much Naveen & Sujith! I personally have become a huge fan of your tours and mesmerising story tellers, which took me around Nileshwar village life, Bekal Fort,Arakkal Museum,St. Angelo Fort and lastly most exciting Ocean Kayaking at Dharmadam. I strongly recommend to all my friends around the world to come down and explore Malabar with Team Tyndis.

Experiencing these mangroves was incredible, to say the least. The way the community is intertwined with sustainable practices over decades is nothing short of a miracle. And hearing first-hand stories of the planting and preserving of the mangroves is just a cherry on top. Ayyappan sir is a treasure trove of stories that will make it feel like you are in the documentary when it’s being shot! Thanks Naveen, Maria, and Neha and hats off to all the storytellers of Tyndis for helping us connect with the heritage of the Malabar region. No amount of pictures and videos can do justice to this place - so don’t Google, just go!

Well, Wayanad is a very beautiful place with lots of attractions. Tyndis Tours’ arrangements and guidance was excellent. We booked the Tyndis Wayanad tour on 17th Jan 2020. Everything was great and special thanks to Mr. Sohal for making it a memorable experience.
The day tour included the tribal village visit, which was exciting. We loved the interactions with the tribal folks of Wayanad! Really welcoming people they were. The tribal colony is a place where one can experience the indigenous culture and tribal tradition of Wayanad. Our storyteller was enthusiastic and explained about the tribal colonies and their livelihood. We interacted with the tribal chieftain - called the Mooppan. He talked in the local dialect, which Sohal translated for us!
The Ambalavayal village ensured the local essence, the Wayanad Heritage Museum added the heritage flavour to the tour. Wayanad has various varieties of rice. In our village walk, we saw agricultural activities going on in the farmlands of Ambalavayal village. Sohal explained about the arrival of Rubber and single crop plantations in Wayanad. He seemed to have an interest towards agriculture! The walk also covered local interactions, primary schools and many such places! The Edakkal Caves was yet another awaited experience and yes, finally we were able to climb up the famous historic place of Wayanad! I could read a lot about Edakkal on the internet during my travel research last month.
This Edakkal climb – it was not a very difficult hike, and the pace was not very crowded, but it was a great way to get to explore the wilderness of the place...and the views were absolutely amazing! Our storyteller Sohal did a fantastic job keeping us all together and provided so much information and great tips for all the stops. The experience at the archery making unit of Wayanad was mind-blowing. We thoroughly enjoyed the place…
Wayanad is famous for its tribal arrows and bows. We could meet a person who makes these. The archery making culture of Wayanad is on a declining phase as explained by the old archerer. He shared his concerns about this with us. I personally was overwhelmed with his passion towards the craft. He even taught us how to shoot the bow. Tremendous experience it was!! This Wayanad tour by Tyndis was a great example of how community engagement tours should be! I specially thank Tyndis team for curating such an experience.
It was a great way to get to experience the entire area for me, including time with/without the group to allow for exploration of each point along the tour. I would definitely do this trip again.

We had a great experience of Theyyam and especially of the night fire Theyyam.The experience was really fascinating. Big thanks to Naveen and Tyndis Tours who organised our wonderful Theyyam Tour in Kannur! Tyndis arranged for Midhun, who was a specialist theyyam storyteller.He knows everything about Theyyam and he is from the same place.
We especially appreciated that, while giving us all information about the numerous theyyam performances (our trip was in January) sending videos to help us to decide which Theyyam we wanted to attend, Naveen let us take the final decision! This helped a lot to cater for my photography interests! I could click a lot of great snaps. Through WhatsApp messages Naveen shared a lot of photographs of the Theyyam dance.
I requested for the best Theyyam for a photoshoot, Tyndis suggested Kandanar Kelan Theyyam , A rare night theyyam with Fire.
As per the itinerary, we headed to the temple at morning 2 with Tyndis coordinator Midhun , He arranged everything locally. He discussed with the local Theyyam committee and helped us to settle a very near place to get the best shot. We spent there till 11 in the morning where we shot a few face painting sessions and some morning theyyam as well.
Wow Service - Tyndis arranged Coffee/ Tea in the flask!!
Midhun always kept accompanying us at the performance, and it was really helpful. I felt without a storyteller like him, it will be difficult to make out the rituals happening before our eyes and understand the stories.
This Theyyam tour experience was one of the best experiences I have never had anywhere else in India...and I have been travelling in India every year for the last 10 years!!!!! I really recommend this wonderful experience from Tyndis!
