Full description
You will be met at the cruise port by your guide who will take you to your transportation. Your journey will take you to the city of Panaji, which is the capital of the Indian state of Goa. Your walk will take you through the Portuguese Latin Quarters of Fontainhas (or Bairro das Fontainhas, in Portuguese). Many of the traditional houses here were built in the 18th and 19th centuries, and their red tiled roofs are what attracts tourists to this area year after year. You will then proceed to the old Goa Churches, Old Goa or Velha Goa (Velha means "old" in Portuguese). The remains of the city are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Old Goa contains churches affiliated to various congregations, including the Se Cathedral (the seat of the Archbishop of Goa), the Church of St. Francis of Assisi, the Church of S. Caetano, and notably, the Basilica of Bom Jesus which contains the relics of Saint Francis Xavier. The tour will then take a drive to the spice garden/plantation, where you will be welcomed in a traditional way before heading back to the cruise port.

    The guide has hardly provided any explanations for the destinations that have been reached.

    Guide and driver were obviously very knowledgeable about Goa and safely approached the announced destinations and sights with us. However, we received hardly any further information from the guide and were left quite alone during the visits. Above all, he could not give us any information about the country and people in Goa, the culture and the historical context.

    Poor organization and everything messy

    Our trip should start at 8 a.m. but we waited until 9.30 a.m. for missing passengers. The conversation revealed that we had all booked different tours with different start times and were all thrown into a bus. The guide had no other information and the local agency was not available. Overall, the tour was okay but there was a lack of information in advance and the information provided by the guide could have been more detailed. On the spice plantation, for example, we should simply join a larger group instead of getting a separate tour, which I would have expected.
