Vasco Safari – Fort Kochi City Bike Tour

  • Morning glimpses of life in Fort Kochi & Old city Mattancherry.
  • Exploring the heart of the Old city, it’s communities and their stories.
  • History bits of this 500+ years old port city

The satellite town of Fort Kochi, a major tourist destination of the Cochin Islands, has an easy paced, whimsical vibe to it. A historic trading port, it still retains an old world charm which can transport you to centuries ago. Narrow cobble stone streets, cafes that open for business only in the late mornings and fishermen that line the coast with their Chinese fishing nets blend in the jigsaw of contrasting activities with ease. Most of all, Fort Kochi and its Siamese chunk of old city, Mattancherry are best explored on cycles.

This refreshing morning ride is infused with colorful stories from the glorious past of Cochin that will make you experience the city from a local perspective.

Please note that we do not stop for a wholesome breakfast en-route. As part of tour, we will have a chai (tea) and local snacks like the native people of Kochi do.

After six years, Dibin was happy to leave Dubai’s clinically clean environs and come home to exploring the wonderfully unkempt and thickly green landscape of good old Kerala on his cycle. Amongst the diverse Kerala experiences, Dibin loves the traditional cuisines and organic farming methods the most! If he’s not scouring through the Kerala trails, you will find him hooked to movies with an intellectual tug; Into the Wild is his favourite! He is a native of Thrissur, Kerala.

We had a wonderful time with Sajeeb




We had a wonderful time with Sajeeb ! We did a two-hour bike tour which allowed us to see the city from another perspective. We discovered emblematic spots as well as “hidden” places with no tourists at all ! We met great people and learnt a lot about Indian culture thanks to Sajeeb’s explanations. We highly recommend this bike tour because it is very interesting for foreigners to understand more of Kochi’s history. We also recommend Sajeeb as an amazing tour guide !
