Chapels, Islands & Feni: These 6 Tour Guides Will Show You The Real Goa
So you think you have been to Goa enough times to have seen it all? We say NOT, because every day we discover something new thanks to the fabulous tour guides in Goa. So we recommend that you definitely keep these guys on your speed dial if you wish to discover more than just the popular beaches.
Soul Travelling is the labour of love of Varun & Ramchandra who quit their cushy jobs to make exploring Goa their only mission. From fun pub crawls in Panjim with history and information thrown in, to heritage walks in Mapusa, Vasco and other cities, these guys show you these places in a whole new light. You could either join one of their regular organised walks, or ask them to do an exclusive one for you and your group.
Walk With History is another group started by local Goans comprising an engineer and a fashion designer. The duo is all about showing you Goa’s history that goes even beyond the Portuguese rule. So, explore the Kadamba dynasty’s capital (in case you didn’t know they used to rule Goa way before the Portuguese even got here) or other historic caves and sights that are from way back 10CE or even earlier. They also take tourists for the usual Fontainhas walk every day and their heritage trail in Marmugao is fairly popular.
Felly Gomes, under his NGO Live Happy, conducts the Assagao heritage walks and other activities in and around the village. Though only restricted to Assagao, this walk through a quaint village is totally worth exploring for the rich history it provides. For the uninitiated, this tiny village is now also home to some of the nicest cafes (hey, Gunpowder, hey, Gshot Coffee Roasters and hello, Mojigao) but what makes this walk with Felly super exciting is his knowledge of the local landmarks including monuments and oral traditions. So, you aren't just treated to the sight of beautiful houses in the area but also to a hearty meal at Felly's own casa followed by energetic folk songs. Doesn't get more real than this, right?
