We really enjoyed our bike ride through the lanes of old Goa, in between stopping by to admire the old churches, museums and building. It was a good break from the party mood of "modern" Goa.

Great place to visit it's like stepping back in time, good to know its bring preserved. Easy to get to from panjim, I caught a taxi but also very easy (apparently) by bus. It's not the biggest of sites you'll get round in an hour and a half max

Beautiful houses, good and friendly people and scenic roads. This is a UN declared heritage town. The drive through old Goa is a nice experience and there are nice churches in this area which adds to the beauty.

If you are in Goa, You must enjoy the bike ride by hiring it locally. It is available easily...you must have an original ID proof to deposit with the owner. It will cost 30 to 500 INR per day. The best would be rent a bike and go to old Goa..enjoy a ride to old Goa church, and other beaches... More
