Tour Overview

The Kalypso guide will meet you at the St. Francis Church in Fort Kochi, the oldest European Church in India. After a short safety-briefing, you will start your day’s expedition cycling through the narrow lanes and spice markets moving towards Mattancherry. The architecture along the busy streets in this enclave is very clearly European, with fine houses built by wealthy British traders of the colonial era, and the Dutch cottages with split farmhouse doors. After you reach Mattancherry, you will head to the Mattancherry Palace popularly known as the Dutch Palace, which features Kerala murals depicting Hindu temple-art, portraits and exhibits of the Rajas or erstwhile kings of Kochi and showcasing a blend of colonial and Kerala architecture. After visiting the Palace, you could stroll through Jew Street and visit the oldest active synagogue in the Commonwealth of Nations. Then, you resume cycling and move towards the Santa Cruz Basilica. This is a very attractive church constructed in the gothic style and was originally built by the Portuguese. From there you will pedal towards the Princess Street which has a quaint old-world charm to it. As you approach the end of the tour you arrive at the unique Chinese Fishing nets whose history and drama are remarkable. Cycling back to the St. Francis Church where your tour ends can be a poignant experience as this sight-seeing tour in Fort Kochi will make you wish to linger. If you wish to cycle more, then our guide will take you through the backwaters of Kochi where you pass through villages and you can see different methods of fishing and local fish markets.
