Everything was excellent. Our guide met the six of us promptly even though he had to wait for us to exit immigration. He took us to all of the highlights of Goa, both old and new. Our tour at the Spice Plantation and lunch were excellent. Our guide and driver were conscious of the time and safely got us back to the ship in plenty of time.
We took this tour by ourselves. The spice plantation was very interesting and got to see the resident elephant. We enjoyed a lovely lunch there as well. Our tour guide drove us around Goa. Enjoyed the Kingfisher beer as well. The only downfall was our own expectation of Goa. When watching the Bourne Movie 2 with Matt Damon we were expecting a little more excitement, like in the movie. Goa is lovely, probably would have been different if we would have a beach tour instead. But we still enjoyed our tour. Tour guide and driver were very good.
overall an excellent tour with good driver and very good tour guide spice plantation visit very good and tour of old churches at old Goa excellent traffic was very heavy and slow as roads very narrow
