The KOKO Lunch Club Goa is a very special day out offering you the chance to experience 'Goa beyond the Beach.' You begin your exclusive excursion with a guided tour of Goa's grandest, private mansion, showcasing the treasures of Goa's proud and fascinating heritage. An utterly delicious and authentic five course Indo-Portuguese lunch will follow, served on the garden terrace of a restored seventeenth century priest's palacio. We will drop you back safely to your hotel at around 3 pm. The cost of your all-inclusive day is Rs 2,900 per person from the South Goa (Canacona) area, and includes a fully hosted day out, private air-conditioned transport, fixed donations to help preserve Goa's heritage and of course quite possibly the best lunch you will ever enjoy when visiting Goa. *Please kindly note an additional transport fee may apply for those guests travelling from outside Palolem, Patnem, Rajbag and Agonda. parts of Goa. Everyone is most welcome on our KOKO Lunch Clubs, with both private excursions and fixed date tours available throughout the year. Please sign up to the KOKOindia Experiences and Excursions page on Facebook for details of our KOKO Lunch Clubs and other fun and unique excursions.

Firstly, Shital who was our guide for the day, could not have been nicer. Genuinely warm and friendly, she certainly made you feel at ease. The trip around the Portuguese house was fascinating, split into 2 halves, each owned by a sister, one side maintained beautifully and shown by a professional and knowledgeable lady (although we were tagged on to...

Dear Kitty, Many thanks for your kind review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your day out with us - and especially that you found charm in the eccentricities of our tour guides at the mansion. This is often viewed as one of the most enjoyable parts of the excursion for our guests - aside from the amazing food of... More

This was such a wonderful day out with friends and a great way to gain a different perspective on beautiful Goa and it's Portuguese history. The houses that you visit are exquisite and the ladies that showed us around really shared their passion and knowledge of their family history with us. The food was beyond amazing, and catered to the... More

In my daughter's many times in Goa she had never been on this trip but always wanted to. We were not disappointed as everything about it was wonderful and so well organised by Joanna. The only thing which would have made it perfect would have been to have had her company although the sweet lass who accompanied us was delightful.... More

Dear Deborah, many thanks for your lovely review. I agree that its a great way for a mother and daughter to enjoy spending quality time away from the beach - in fact we regularly enjoy the company of visiting parents keen to experience a taste of authentic 'Old Goa.' Next time you wish to join us, i will be very... More

This is a unique opportunity to see how the Portuguese once lived and the style of garden they would have made. The property was bought in a ruined state and has been sensitively restored by the present owners but still feels very much like a family home. Lunch is delicious, with many (light!) Goan dishes to try out. The tour... More

I'm regular visitor to Goa every season for christmas and new year. I'd never heard of this delightful colonial refurbished mansion until Joanna very kindly invited me. Joanna very successfully organised a party of twelve of us - all regular beach lovers - to go on this little adventure 40 mins away. That takes a lot of persuading once you... More

This outing is a great way to experience another side of Goa - having spent a few months on the beach and never really ventured inland to the historic parts of Goa, we decided to book on when my mum came to visit and were so glad that we finally did! The day includes a tour of a 400-odd year... More

This was the first time I went on a trip for the second time :) The trip is very well organised and the food is out of this world. Not to be missed - treat yourself to a day off the beach, you won't regret it.

I participated in this tour after a rather hectic night of partying the night before. Luckily for me the hardest thing I had to do was be at the arranged meeting point on time. From there, our host Joanna collected us in our taxis, transporting us a short distance away (c.40 mins) to a picturesque 17th century Portuguese influenced mansion... More
