Itinerary

When does my tour start?
Tour time will be set to fit in with your arrival time.

When do I return to port after my tour/excursion?
The tour is 5 hours in length so you will be returned in plenty of time for your cruise ship departure. All tour times are based on Shore time (i.e. local time, - not ship time)

This is a private tour

Clients will be met by a Cruising Excursions representative at the cruise port, the representative will be holding a sign with the Cruising Excursions logo 

You will begin this half day excursions with a visit to the Dutch Palace (closed on Friday). It was built by the Portuguese, and presented to the Raja of Cochin in 1555. Though built by the Portuguese, it is popularly known as the 'Dutch Palace', as the Dutch renovated it during their brief reign here. The glory of the Palace lies in the murals which are in the traditions of Hindu Temple Art.

You tour will continue with a visit to the Jewish synagogue (closed on Friday noon & Saturday). Built in 1568 A.D, it includes The Great Scrolls of Old Testament and a number of copper plates inscribed in the Hebrew Script, and are still preserved in the Synagogue. This Jewish Synagogue in Kochi stands out as a testimony for the communal harmony.

The next stop on your tour will be a visit to St Francis Church. Built by the Portuguese in 1510 A.D, it is believed to be the oldest European Church built in India. Vasco-da-Gama was buried here, and fourteen years later, his mortal remains were taken to Portugal. If visitors wish to enter the church, they are allowed only by a barefoot.

You will have the opportunity to also see the Chinese fishing nets at the entrance to the harbor, and the mechanical method of catching fish by local fishermen in Fort Kochi.
