We were not quite sure what to expect of this group tour but it's fair to say it exceeded any expectations we did have. Although it's listed as a group tour of up to 15 it turned out to be a private tour for the four of us. The driver and guide were waiting for us as we disembarked. The vehicle was clean, quite new and very comfortable.
Although the tour is listed as not suitable for wheelchairs we checked in advance and established that our friend who does use a wheelchair part of the time would be able to cope. The driver and guide were very good in ensuring that our friend could enjoy the tour to the fullest extent possible.
Our guide was outstanding, probably the best we had during our whole India trip. He was friendly, helpful and a mine of information. Although a Hindu himself, he was extremely knowledgeable of the Christian history of Goa and the churches we visited. We failed to come up with a question he couldn't answer!
At our request we skipped the visit to a Hindu temple, having already visited others in other locations. Instead, we asked if our guide and driver if they could take us somewhere for lunch before our return to the ship. This they did. The restaurant they chose was excellent and, despite the fact that this meant a tour of longer duration than scheduled, there was no extra charge.
All-in-all a fascinating and highly enjoyable tour. Based on our experience we would highly recommend it.
