Escorted tours of Goa

A unique culture, exquisite beaches, and some of the best seafood on the subcontinent: Goa holidays have all this and more.

India’s most popular coastal destination, the relatively small state packs a punch when it comes to things to see and do, from its astounding shoreline to the gorgeous churches and other places of worship spread throughout its landmass.

Centuries of Portuguese rule means that holidays to Goa can feel very different to other Indian trips. WIth that said, you can still indulge in other subcontinental highlights as the state is well connected - if you can pull yourself away from its astounding natural beauty, that is. Sure, it might not have the grandeur of the Taj Mahal, or the thrum of Delhi, but with a Newmarket Holidays escorted tour of Goa, you’ll be able to discover the incredible beauty of one of India’s most underrated states, all while experiencing a culture that’s as special as it is welcoming.

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.

Goa FAQs

First time to Goa? Here are a few questions (and answers!) you may have...

  • 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 ⁰

  • The Indian rupee is the official currency of India. Visit XE to see the current exchange rate.

  • No, you don’t. While Hindi is India’s national language and is spoken by more than half of its citizens, English is spoken widely throughout India, especially in Goa.


  • Goa is 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. 

  • Absolutely. Goa has more than its fair share of milder dishes, including naan, butter chicken, dosa, chutneys, dahi wada, malai kofta, and more.

  • 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.

  • The risk of contracting malaria in India varies from state to state.
    However, there is a low to no risk of catching malaria in Goa. To find out more, book an appointment at your local travel clinic.
