Good vale trips to help you explore Goa. Dont go in the afternoons as the ladies on the desk seemed half asleep and uninterested. called back later that day and was pleasantly suprised with the service and knowledge. Did the Dolphin trip £10 each and Dudhsagar waterfalls £17 each

We did the overnight house boat tour with John's. After being picked up by the taxi we travelled for about 45 mins to the house boat where we were met by Victor and his staff. We soon set sail and the surrounding Goan countryside was beautiful and peaceful.We saw kites,kingfishers and everyday Goan working life from the small villages that... More

This is our second trip to Goa and we totally recommend John's Boat Tours in every way. We did the Grand Island Snorkeling trip, Anjuna Market, and fishing. The organisation is exceptional and the guides and boat captains are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. We would especially like to mention Irazmus the guide for both the market and fishing and Sam... More

First of all I should state that the waterfalls themselves are absolutely amazing. A few things were in my opinion disappointing with this tour and could easily be fixed. We were 1st to get picked up so in total it was a 2.5 hour drive to the waterfalls and then the same on the way back. This was in a... More

I did the 2 day/1 overnight boat tour in goa and had a wonderful time! there's only 2 rooms so only 4 guests per tour. the boat itself is well kept and has an upper deck to lounge around in or sunbathe. showers and the room were spacious and the window inside the room overlooks the river.. so breath taking!...

These guys certainly know what they are doing - Erasmo (our guide) was very professional and a great guy to chat with. We started the tour at 9 AM and sailed to the part of the goa sea where Dolphins converge for their feeding in the morning. The boat itself was very well designed and also had an upper deck... More

We booked the houseboat before leaving the uk, as there were 3 in our party, we had to pay for 4 people but it was worth every rupee! We found the office on arrival in Candolim and confirmed booking and made full payment, taxi picked us up and transferred to boat, where we took a small motorboat to the houseboat.... More
