Through significant religious sights and culturally diverse history, feel the heartbeat of Kochi on a half-day tour with the services of a private guide. See a medieval synagogue, the oldest European church in India, and the striking fishing nets—one of the distinguishing features of the city.

Begin your journey into the history of Kerala with an insight into the state's Dutch influence. The Mattancherry Dutch Palace also displays Portuguese architectural styles, and you can admire the colorful murals depicting 17th-century life in the region.

Stroll along the enchanting streets surrounding the 16th-century Paradesi Synagogue, then enter and observe several artifacts pertaining to centuries throughout the Middle Ages. Engage with the history of the British Raj at St. Francis Church as you delve into the wealth of records housed within.

Next, proceed to the shoreline and gaze upon the picturesque view of the Chinese fishing nets lining the water's edge. Witness their hypnotic movement in the water as the fishers haul in their catch.
