"We booked south Goa sight seeing tour for 3 people. They guided us really well. Specially Pooja the girl working there, who is been polite and helpful. She gaves every bit of information. She picks calls at any time and provides details.\n\nThen the trip drivers picks us around 8:50am. \nWe visited every place as mentioned in the trip. \nAnd they park around good restaurants too. \n\nHighlight of this package is boat cruise which we need to pay 300 per head. It's good in boat. Everyone enjoys themselves. "

The Dudhsagar Trek in Goa is brilliant. After being to Goa just to roam around and loiter in the beach for so many times, we wanted to have a really lovely trip that is adventurous too. That’s when we decided to do the Dudhsagar trek and it was just too brilliant. We drove till the meeting point from Bangalore, and we joined with the other folks there and we had a really brilliant time trekking. The beauty of western ghats can be totally experienced if you drive through for this trek. Also, this trek is just too brilliant and tedious too.

Wao what a thrilling experience it was really!!! actually my uncle had been Goa last year and it was his recommendation that i went there with my best friends in my vacations, and believe me guys it was the lifes best moments of life. Mobor beach is one of the most beautiful beaches i have ever seen, Hotel and restaurants are not so cheap but provides qualty services. The most exciting fun was winch boat parasailing which we really enjoyed to the fullest. it feels amazing when we reach to certain height in the air , those few minutes were filled thrill and excitement. And i think the cost incurred in the activity was worth it. Going again in the next vacation.

Being in Goa is a nice experience. It is like a foreign island inside our own country, but covering the whole Goa in a single trip can be very tiresome. While we covered North Goa by ourselves, we too South Goa sightseeing package, and it was the best thing to do. It was a brilliant experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was worth every rupee spent.

This is worth the time to visit. Take swimming costumes as it is great to take a dip in the pool at the bottom of the falls. Take a few pieces of fruit to feed the monkeys but avoid buying from the local howkers as they will try to overprice and you only need a few pieces to get some great photo
