This morning, you'll be picked up from your selected hotel and driven to our custom-built kitchen on the banks of the Mandovi River in central Goa.

This morning you'll enjoy an introduction to the cuisine of South India, including local Goan food.

Via emails my expert consultant Sharon managed to book this tour and send me all the nessesary paperwork seemlessly with no stress or pressure.

On arriving in Goa, Judy personally phoned my hotel room to welcome me and inform me of the travel arangments to and from the cooking school for the next day.

The cooking school in Goa was informative, relaxed and memorable.

Thanks On The Go, I will recommend this tour and your company.
