Stop in Cochin allows passengers to visit a part of India very different than the big cities of Mumbai and Delhi or the grandeur of Rajasthan. City tour includes several walks in different parts of city.

How you would expect India to be. Very dirty and run down. We did the backwaters excursion which was most enjoyable. Plenty of sun cream required, hat and sunglasses.

Highly recommend renting a Tuk Tuk and taking in markets and sites. So much to see, weaving in and out of traffic was even exciting lol Got some amazing spices for Chai Tea
