Great and knowledgeable tour instructor from Goa. Great air conditioned minivan with little walking and amazing sightseeing.

Everything was excellent. Our guide met the six of us promptly even though he had to wait for us to exit immigration. He took us to all of the highlights of Goa, both old and new. Our tour at the Spice Plantation and lunch were excellent. Our guide and driver were conscious of the time and safely got us back to the ship in plenty of time.

It was quite an experience to see how Christian churches coexist alongside Hindu temples. We were lucky to have a well informed guide who told us many interesting stories about the history of the place.

We were met on time at Goa port by a driver and guide. The vehicle was and air conditioned personnel carrier. There was only five of us in the group. The guide had a good knowledge of Goa history. We visited a number of temples built by different ruling dynasties. This was followed by a lunch which was disappointing to us and could have been omitted from the tour Finally we had an interesting visit and tour to a spice plantation A pleasant way to see Goa on a short visit

We took this tour by ourselves. The spice plantation was very interesting and got to see the resident elephant. We enjoyed a lovely lunch there as well. Our tour guide drove us around Goa. Enjoyed the Kingfisher beer as well. The only downfall was our own expectation of Goa. When watching the Bourne Movie 2 with Matt Damon we were expecting a little more excitement, like in the movie. Goa is lovely, probably would have been different if we would have a beach tour instead. But we still enjoyed our tour. Tour guide and driver were very good.
