Very personalised tour of Calicut. Jibu collected us from our hotel and took us to all the places which he thought we would be interested in. We also told him that we wanted to see a market etc. It was most interesting to go to the fishing area and watch the fishermen mending nets and see about ten to twelve eagles circling the area. We went to the wholesale spice market which was fascinating. We saw temples, mosques and churches but when it got too hot we didn’t get down and walk around. We saw a little slice of Calicut which we would not have seen or experienced without him. Jibu is a extremely pleasant, helpful and well informed guide whom I will definitely contact if we go again to Calicut or Wayanad. He came to our hotel in the evening to give us some black pepper from his own garden.

Great tour to learn about the history, heritage and culture of a city called Kozhikode, which was once a famous sea port in India. Though I visited the city many times before, this tour gave me lot of stories and insight about the city. Jibu is a good person and a great storyteller. He is kind and pleasant, has good knowledge about Kozhikode. Highly recommend this host and the tour.

Jibu took us around Calicut. I didnt expect that Calicut has such beautiful historical stories. He is an expert and a person of details. He took us to the market and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The culture of Calicut and the people are really warm. Their hospitality is amazing and we loved the tour. Would definitely recommend this tour to have a real slice of Calicut in half a day

This tour was so good and definitely the easiest and great way to experience Calicut. Jibu was so knowledgeable about the city and guided us through the lanes, where Arabs and Europeans searched for spices and silk. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing and knowing Calicut with all it's history, heritage and culture.
