  • Whole evening was great. Picked up without any gala from hotel and taken to Kathakali centre. Great to see the makeup being applied and the transformation the artists go through. Good explanation of this style of dance and a great show. Dinner followed and was good, dropped back at hotel. Very pleasant evening.

  • Excellent performance!

  • Nobody should go to Cochin without experiencing Kathakali. The whole experience was both educational and entertaining and seeing the whole presentation from makeup through an explanation of the principles and ending in a scene from a full presentation was excellent. The transfers were punctual and the local restaurant was right opposite our hotel and well used by tour trips so was well up to the standard expected.
