There was no decent response from them... it seemed as if travelling / touring with them would be a favour on us. Despite sending atleast 4 - 5 emails sent to them all i received were one word answers in yes or no in the end i gave up. Not helpful at all.

We did the overnight rice boat trip. It was fantastic. There are only four of you and it helped that we got on really well with the other couple. The boat is quaint but bedroom and shower room were better than I had expected. We were well looked after- super food and drink and lots of information along the way.... More

If you are thinking of doing this tour please do it's amazing. Long journey on the train 7 + hours but really worth it just for the history and a fantastic tour. World heritage site so still a lot of excavation going on. Also sunset tour with monkeys was great. Worth every penny with johns boat tours

When they put tourists for 6 hours on a boat without wc, delay start for an hour, forget to do a pick up - I could explain it with poor service! But going to an island, where entry is prohibited by a law and allowing tourists to get arrested by a police - how do you explain that!!?? Don't do... More

We were in Goa the last week in March 2015 and quite frankly can't wait to go again. We did 2 trips with Johns boat tours and can't praise them enough, good informative guides, nothing was to much trouble. We will definitely using Johns boat tours on our next visit to Goa.

Went to Goa in March 2015. Tours booked with Johns Boat Tours: the dolphin tour, flee market, waterfall, elephant ride & shower, snorkelling. I cannot recommend this superb company enough. The tour guides are so helpful & friendly. They don't rush you, happy to answer any questions you may have, they take the time to explain things, patient, unhurried &... More

We booked a 3 hour fishing trip with Johns for £10 each and had a great time so great a time we went twice. Both times fish were caught, puffa fish, mackerel, cat fish and groper. The 2 chaps who take you out are knowledgable about the area and help you if you've never fished before. Beer and soft drinks... More
