Newly Added Old Goa Experience
17 January 2016
Excellent
It was my life’s most memorable vacation, the most amazing thrill inside water where i played with dolphins, watching the famous Fort Aguada from the sea was an exciting experience for me.
It was definitely something else to cycle through the beautiful roads of Goa and admire the scenery. The cycles were all in top condition and the guide was great at leading the way and coordinating with the whole group. Overall a lovely experience that I would recommend to everyone!
It was my first time kayaking in the backwaters, have always done in the open sea. The tour also included a trained instructor and I am glad to have met David. He gave me some amazing lessons on how to improve your kayaking strokes and skills.
Excellent
Unbelievably superb place on Earth I should say. The bird sanctuary and the forest around it were extraordinary. Couldn't forget the place and its charm even after coming back home. Kayaking was only secondary compared to the beauty of the place. The whole activity was filled with so much vibrance. Kayaks- perfect, guides- perfect, equipment- perfect, timing- perfect, location- excellent. I can give 5 stars to this tour blindly. Thank you Thrillophilia.
A must try activity for those of you who visit Goa. The guides are very professional and the whole experience is affordable and interesting.
The place was so crowded, yet we had so much fun doing snorkelling and dolphin sightseeing. We reached the location early in the morning to view the sunrise as well. We got a very informative class before the activity from the team of guides. Since it was my first time doing snorkelling, I was really scared. But once I went into the water, it was feeling like magic. Great water, great experience. Thank you guys for offering me such a nice package in Goa.
Beer and lunch were the bonus points we got on this tour. The sea life on Grand Island is rich and diversified. We were provided with a full face mask which helped with the breathing process during snorkelling.
Quality services provided by Thrillophilia, especially for such good price. With zero booking fees and instant confirmation, the overall experience was amazing. Professionalism and cost-effectiveness with a delightful experience. Thanks.
The island is very beautiful especially the under water experience with the dolphins.. it is worth every penny.. my family was very happy on this trip.. thanks Thrillophilia..
This was the first time I was going to do snorkeling. I was afraid but the staff was very patient with me and provided me with all the information one needs to know before snorkeling. It is one of the most thrilling activities I have done so far. Also, I had a great time playing with Dolphins.
