Our guide Jonas and driver Daniel were amazing. It was great having a local guide and driver tell us about Goa and Indian living in general. They answered all questions in a knowledgeable, engaging and open manner. It was well paced and I learnt a lot!

I was very pleased with all aspects of this tour. The tour guide, Cesar, was very friendly and professional, spoke excellent english, was highly knowledgeable, and was truly focused on making sure the tour met my expectations. Pickup at the hotel was punctual, the car was comfortable, the driver (Shiva) was safe and efficient. I highly recommend this tour to others. Thank you again Cesar and Shiva!

Our guide Jonas was fantastic! I would highly recommend this excellent guided tour. Jonas knowledge and professionalism was second to none. He was honest, friendly and it was a privilege to spend our time with him as we have strong Christian faiths and Jonas told us so much history about these amazing churches and a cathedral in Goa. Thank you so much Jonas from Heather and Nori from Scotland
