    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.

    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.
