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.

Paurd's review for another GeTS Holidays PVT LTD tour
“Traveling solo is not always easy, specially when you are far from home and not speak the language. Luckily I found Gets Holidays and it was the best experience I could have asked for. Not only did they set up the best itinerary for me including restaurants and accommodations, but where always happy to solve any inquiries.”

The itineraries ensured we saw the best attractions and the well trained guides made the history come alive and answered the many questions we had about local life.
