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. "

Had an amazing experience during the trip. Went with may family and enjoyed alot. This was our first time we went for snorkeling and fishing. Snorkeling was easy, but fishing will take time for you to understand properly the functioning of the fishing rod.

I was totally enthralled by the Jet Ski and the parasailing activity that I did at the Baina Beach, Goa. The experience was great and I just loved it. I am coming back again to Goa to repeat it. Undoubtedly one of the most exciting things that I have ever done in this short lifespan of mine. So I am definitely going to recommend it to all of my friends.
