About the event

TOUR OVERVIEW

We think the world has been unfair to Goa in so many ways; but mostly because we have thought of it as just a beach and beer place. Goa is so much more than that. It has a rich heritage and history. Old Portuguese mansions, quaint islands, impressive museums, backwaters,waterfalls and colorful festivals.

Monsoon, typically an off-season, is one of the best times to explore this entirely different face of Goa. We bring you a trip that curates the most exciting and interesting experiences the state has to offer, including lip-smacking Goan cuisine.

ITINERARY

Day 1 - 15 Aug 2019

Reach Panjim and proceed to a beautiful heritage homestay in Panjim. Your stay today is a century old Portuguese villa restored with care, keeping the charm intact. Minutes away from all major attractions in Panjim, the place is ideal to just soak in the Goan feel.

In the afternoon, we will visit the popular Aguada Fort and the interesting Houses of Goa museum. Built in the shape of a ship, this museum showcases the houses which were the prime expression of the Goan identity. In the evening, get ready to witness the feast of the ‘Assumption of Mother Mary into Heaven’ called as Patolleanchem Feast depicting a rich old Goan cuisine and culture, that goes on till late evening. Overnight in Panjim.

Day 2 - 16 Aug 2019

After breakfast we set out to explore the natural bounty that North Goa offers. Exploring forests and waterfalls in the monsoon is the best way to forget your worries. Enjoy the Harvalem waterfall. We then proceed to Mollem National Park to spend time as close to nature as possible. Proceed to visit an ancient temple deep inside the National Park, surrounded by innumerous streams and dense forest. In case the rains are heavy, we will still find a way to enter and walk around the forest. Overnight at Panjim.

Day 3 - 17 Aug 2019

Today is heritage and history day. Post breakfast, we will set out on a heritage walk in Fontainhas village. We then proceed to have a guided tour of Velha Goa. In the afternoon, we take a guided tour around Bicholim with its history and forts, weaving story about the Portuguese invasions and how the natives moved their deities around. The temples are colorful and provide a beautiful contrast to the Portuguese architecture. In the evening, check in to a heritage home stay. Overnight at Saligao.

Day 4 - 18 Aug 2019

Take an early morning walk around the picturesque village of Saligao.
