What people are saying about Panaji

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!

Very nice day very interesting! Our French-speaking guide Jenny was able to tell us about the history of GOA and accompany us throughout the day by speaking good French, which allowed many exchanges and answers to our questions about life in GOA.

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.

Great day out. Very informative. Guide is a great historian. Comfortable car with AC.

Well planned tour, good tour guide. Unfortunately a bit little time in Old Goa
