Places To Visit In Goa
Simply WOW!! Quite a thrillophilic journey with immensely warm hospitality, perfect planned schedules and of course amazing travel. As planned we were picked up @7 in the morning and were taken to the falls which happens to be around 100 kms. Bus they provide are very comfortable and AC will also be sufficient to beat the heat of sultry Goa. We also covered a landmark church of Goa enroute. They will give you around 15 20 mins to get that holy feel. Once we reached the venue we were given time to have breakfast, meanwhile the guide arranged tickets for the whole group and settled us up in the bolero which takes you from there further. It was again a Splendid journey of 45 mins through mahavir national park where you will cross several streams also. Pure off roading and adventurous experience. From the parking u have to walk for 5 mins to finally reach the destination which, you undoubtedly will feel deserving enough to have travelled for. Such a sublime scene and cool clear water with fishes around you will quench all the tiredness you might have had after traveelinh to several beaches. You get around 1.5 hours in total after final parking out of which for bathing you will get around 45 mins. Caution : please travel with good non slippery shoes as the rocks are too slippery and carelessness might get fatal. No worries though, you wont drown as they will provide you with life jackets so a good news for non swimmers. Post bath again you will be taken back and be served with complimentary lunch in goan style which is quite palatable. Then a short spice plantation tour followed by a return drop to the reapective pick up points. The trip will end in North Goa around 6 evening. ps : If you have time on your goa trip, do visit this place and thrillophilia is definitely a good option to consider coz it will wave off your trip organisational headache.

Superb cycling experience, it was just the 3 of us including the guide and we were able to complete the trip real fast. The bird sanctuary is where we took most of the pics. We went off road through the forest area as well and we could find the railway lines located there. Couple of steep ups and downs which made cycling challenging. The total distance would be 30 kms. Best I've ever cycled
An unforgettable experience for me. For the first time got a chance to get into snorkeling and see the marine life. Thanks alot guys for an amazing experience.

I went to Goa with my friends, we booked this hotel through Thrillophilia at the pocket friendly price after comparing it on other online platforms. We were welcomed with a drink and after that we were head towards our spacious rooms properly equipped with all the basic amenities. I would recommend to try their Italian cuisines at the Orchid restaurant. Also coming to Goa and not visiting Tito's lane is just a waste so if you guys are planning to go on a Goa trip do try this resort and Tito's lane. The hotel is convenient to access the local area as within walking distance of the Panjim center,. Also, the hotel cars and drivers are available for trips out at additional cost.

Overall a decent holiday in budget. But the 3 days are not enough to explore the to the fullest. Our hotel accommodation is very good for the price we paid and the sightseeing car was also very good. We liked north Goa compare to south Goa as were in a group of 4 boys. There is a lot of places to party in North Goa but the south Goa is very peaceful and less crowded. Overall a good experiences and Thanks to Rupal from Thrillophilia for planning our itinerary in our budget.
