We travelled on Celebrity Constellation over Christmas and New Year and I pre booked day trips with several different tour companies prior to arrival. In Cochin we booked a mini bus and driver and with Just Taxi Holidays and had a fantastic time. We were a group of 7 and had a mini bus that sat about 12 people so plenty of space to spread out. The driver was waiting with our name board when we exited the ship around 9 am - ahead of the ship's tour which didn't depart until 10 am. We enjoyed the hair raising tour to the backwaters which took about 1 1/2 hours. In complete contrast we then had a very relaxed 2 1/2 hour private boat tour around the backwaters which was incredible - a very memorable way to spend Christmas day! We drove back to Cochin via Fort Cochin. All in all a brilliant day at a fraction of the cost Celebrity were charging. I highly recommend this tour. Any questions ask away!
