I went on a river boat trip, and found this to be an amazing experience, the staff were incredible we were both treated like a princess, the food was amazing the view and peacefulness was amazing. Something I would recommend to anyone, an amazing experience and just wanted to say thank you to all the staff.

An excellent experience with a knowledgeable driver/guide, who made the two hour drive to the park enjoyable and informative. The staff at the booking office were also very helpful and friendly and if I had had longer in Goa, then I would certainly have booked some of their other day tours.

Too many boats use this now, time before, about 6 boats, each with about ten people...this time we counted 46 boats...again with about ten people in each...very un supervised and... More

Booked a day trip to the waterfalls through John's Boat Tours and were very well looked after. We had no hassle and the driver always made sure we were safe and where to be at what time. Very nice staff. My only point would be I wouldn't recommend this trip to families with young children/babies. The rocks to get to... More

We were picked up outside our hotel and taken down to the dock on the nearby river where we boarded our boat with help from crew. After a short but lovely trip down the river we were out into the open... More
