A group of 12 of us booked Carnival Tours for our visit in Cochin when our ship RCCL Ovation of the Seas docked on June 1 and June 2. The booking process is smooth. Peter answered all my questions and was good in accommodating our flip flop changes of the number of people in the group. On the day of our tour, Cresbin (our tour guide) and Baisll (our tour driver) met us at the port. We were driven to Kerala for the back water cruise. Along the way, Cresbin give us some information on the culture of the country. The house boat cruise in the back water was fantastic. We had excellent Indian cuisine on board of the boat. The cool breeze made it quite pleasant in a hot weather environment. The next day we had the city tour of Cochin. Cresbin took us to a laundry plant where we saw how the local people does laundry for the public. It's quite and experience. A few of us in the group were quite happy shopping and bargaining. Cresbin was quite patient with us. Would definitely recommend this tour company to anyone visiting Cochin. The only suggestion we have is for Cresbin to get a portable microphone, especially for a tour group of seniors. Keep up the good work and your smile, Cresbin. You made our tour a pleasant one.

Carnival Tours did a great Job on June 01&02: Good meeting Point, very well organized, excellent tour guides on both days: friendly, helpful, good information
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. From initial booking, disembarkation at cruise terminal, right through the tour, this was first class organisation. A small group of 14 with tour guide and driver initially in a very comfortable bus to the Backwaters. The transfer to the houseboat was seamless and the 3 hours spent cruising very slowly through the backwaters and villages was fantastic. This insight in to local life as it is was fascinating and very informative. In addition the lunch provided on board was fantastic
