Escorted Tours of Goa

Join us on an escorted tour to the coastal former Portuguese enclave of Goa, India’s smallest state, and a slice of sun-kissed tropical heaven.

With over 60 miles of glorious palm-fringed coastline, Goa embodies India’s laidback side, in stark contrast to the heaving cities of Delhi and Mumbai. It should come as no surprise then, to learn that people have been coming to Goa to escape the hustle and bustle of metropolitan Indian life since the Colonial era, when British officers and officials flocked here in their droves.

Today’s Goa is a pleasant mix of upscale resorts and sleepy colonial towns with Portugese churches – roughly 25% of Goans are Catholics. Head inland, and you’ll find gentle rolling hills, picturesque waterfalls, together with Panjim, the state capital, and the ruins of the former Portugese capital at Old Goa.

Goa’s famous coast is characterised by some two dozen, large sweeping expanses of white sand, fringed by palm trees, none more famous than the iconic Palolem in the far south. On these stretches of white sand, local businesses, restaurants and cafés spill out from the towns set up on the beach, often in simple wooden shacks.

 

BEST TIME TO VISIT

Broadly speaking, the best time to visit Goa is between the winter months of November and February, when temperatures hover between 21 ⁰C and 28 ⁰C, not too hot for exploring but perfect for lazing on the beach. Between March and May, temperatures can climb as high as 40 ⁰C.  

The monsoon period, which falls between June and October, is also a popular time to visit Goa, with the area newly replenished in lush green, and its beautiful waterfalls in full flow.

THINGS TO DO AND SEE IN GOA

Kick back and relax is the short answer. Goa’s many wonderful beaches and idyllic coast are its main draw – this is beach life as its very best. Among Goa’s finest beaches are Palolem, Calangute, Baga, Anjuna, Candolim and Arambol. 

That said, there are plenty of interesting places to visit inland, including the town of Anjuna, which holds a famous flea market on Wednesdays, and many historical buildings, including Aguada Fort in Candolim and the UNESCO-protected Basilica of Bom Jesus in Old Goa, to explore. The 600-metre-high Dudhsagar Falls are well with a visit too. 

FOOD AND DRINK IN GOA

Food is one of the main draws for people visiting India, with each different region having their own delicious delicacies and Goa is no exception, famous for its sweet, creamy seafood curries, made using the freshest catch, local spices and coconut milk. Up and down the coast, beachside restaurants spill out onto the sand, with nightly barbecues. Aside from fish, pork is also very popular in Goa, especially in the form of pork vindaloo, a fiery Goan dish that was influenced by Portuguese sailors and colonists in the 16th century. 

Goa is not a dry state, so beer is widely available and popular. However, it is worth noting there are numerous ‘dry days’ during which the sale of alcohol is prohibited, including Diwali and Independence Day.
