Kerala Village Experiences | Full day Shore Excursion

Tour Overview

Vaikom is a quaint village not far from Kochi, connected through rivers and canals. Vaikom is a real example of a traditional Keralan village, where people still carry on with their traditional lifestyle and occupation. The cruise through the river and the canals in a country canoe will give you an opportunity to experience the real sense of a Keralan Village. 


You will reach Vaikom in an hour from Kochi, visit the Mahadeva temple where you get a chance to see a typical Hindu Temple. You will board a country canoe and cruise along the villages and finally reach a home where the host will organize a traditional Keralan lunch on banana leaves. Further, you will be moving around the backyard of the house where you get to see a wide variety of Spice trees, coir making, mat weaving, clay pottery, and finally on the way back to Kochi you can visit a cotton-weaving center run by women self-help groups. As the best Kerala tour operator, we can assure you that you will return with bundles of memorable village experience in Kerala.
