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!

Great experience to see the waterfall. It’s a long day but a memory you will hold. The spice garden was also really interesting. Both activities balanced for a great day. Our driver was great and we had a really good day.

Mr Anand (Guide) & Mr. Anthony (Driver) were absolutely wonderful and it was a pleasure to tour Goa with them. My husband and I had a very informative and fun time! 10/10 would recommend.
