Gain a deeper understanding of Goa’s colonial history of Portuguese heritage on this private half-day tour. Learn how to Portuguese impacted the region’s religion, architecture, and food from your expert guide as you explore some of the most iconic places in Goa. Meet your guide at your Goa hotel and travel in private, air-conditioned comfort to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed site, Basilica of Born Jesus. Walk across the marble floor that’s inlaid with precious stones and visit the remains of Catholic missionary St Francis Xavier. Learn about this man’s life from your guide, as well as from the detailed paintings that decorate the interior. Head upstairs to a gallery of surrealist paintings from Dom Martin, a Goan painter. Travel by foot to Se Cathedral, known by locals as Se Cathedral of Santa Catarina. This gothic-style Portuguese architecture houses one of the largest bells in Goa and is dedicated to a saint who was martyred in the 4th century for her Christian devotion. Afterward, travel about 15 minutes in your private car to the city of Panaji. Wander the Latin Quarter, known as Fontainhas and experience the sights, sounds, and flavors of Portuguese influence first hand as you explore the streets. Make a stop at St Sebastian Chapel, where statues of historical figures like Abade Faria, a Roman Catholic monk, are displayed. Next, travel in comfort to Dona Paula Jetty, a peaceful bay where epic views of Mormugao Harbor and the Arabian Sea make for the perfect photo op. Take in the natural wonder of the scene that’s unique to this out of the way treasure before heading to a tiny market on the waterway. Finally, choose to stop at the O’Coquerio restaurant for a traditional Portuguese and Goan mean (own expense), before heading back to your hotel in the comfort of your private vehicle.

“I turned to Get's Holidays to organize our 18-day trip in this magical land that still preserves ancient traditions. I planned everything with Ajay Kumar who was able to give me valuable suggestions for enriching the itineraries and advised to have dinner in the hotels to avoid unpleasant incidents with the overly spicy cuisine in this region. The competence and friendliness of the guides, all in Italian, and the driver Rohitsh, very good, always punctual and available should be highlighted. Perfect organization, exceeding expectations!
We felt flattered by the attention Ritu gave us every day to find out if everything was going well. The accommodations in the hotels have been almost impeccable, always comfortable, allowing a welcome relaxation at the end of interesting but demanding days. Finally, thanks to all the staff who have worked with professionalism and extreme availability and for these reasons strongly recommended! We will return to India!”

“We had a fantastic tour yesterday of the Taj Mahal. Our driver Kamal picked us up right on time at 6am and drove us safely to Agra and back. In Agra we met up with our tour guide Husain who went out of his way to give us a beyond amazing tour of the Taj Mahal. He really took us off the beaten path and away from the tourist crowds. We also ended up skipping Agra Fort and went to the Baby Taj - beautiful. Lunch was also delish. Overall a wonderful day!”
