we really enjoyed the Johns Boat Trip to see the Dolphins however they were quite far away from the boat on most occasions that they surfaced and if you wanted to take a picture you would have to be very, very quick! The trip took us along a part of the Candolim/Sinquerim beaches where we had a swim in the... More

Went to the waterfall with this company, disappointed there as I expected more water falling that there actually was. Not the tour co fault, Enjoyed the bumpy jeep ride in order to get there. Was like a body massage.

The boat was very basic and small (they had a bigger boat but didn't take us on that one as there were few people). The food was simple... More

My sister and I had recently been to Goa. On the day after our arrival we took the trip to Dudhsagar Falls. John's SUV came to our hotel on time & the drive was quite nice. On our way to the falls, the driver kept pointing to the local attractions every time we passed by one. We had a great... More
