About Best Kochi Tour Packages for Cruise Ship Tourists

Passenger cruise ships are visiting Kochi Port and staying in the port from 0600hrs to 1800hrs only. One needs to explore Kochi and nearby places within this time. Though the ship coming at 0600hrs, the passengers used to come out at around 0800hrs and it takes another an hour to have the visa stamped and complete normal procedures. We can say that you are free for a pick up at 0900hrs and till 1700hrs getting a total of 8hrs. Within this 8hrs, you need to complete your one day trip to Kochi and nearby places.

Since there is limited time available for cruise ship passengers, below are the best places one can explore during the short trip to Kochi.

Fort Kochi: A beautiful small place located outskirts of Kochi city. This is the place where Dutch and Portuguese started their settlement beginning of 16th century when they landed in Kerala for trade.
