Booking at the office pretty straight forward, arranged pickup and driver turned up on time to the minute! Boat was perfect no hot water was the only downside of the whole trip. I would certainly book again if ever in... More

We booked three trips with the young man at candolim office near novotel with GBPand can honestly recommend the waterfalls, spice plantation but, the last part of the snorkelling trip where you are meant to have a beach BBQ which didn't happen and was taken to a beach which was not very pleasant and the food was good either.

We have been on the house boat 3 times in the last 6 years. Victor has been our guide every time, he knowledge just gets better. The food is excellent, love the alterations to the boat. This is a fantastic trip and worth every penny

Excellent tour!! Good value for money and was far cheaper than booking through Thomas Cook! The full day was excellent and learnt so much If you want to see Goa itself and couldn't recommend this trip anymore

We took the Dolphin ride in the afternoon. I was not very optimistic about seeing the Dolphins at around 3 PM. We went into the sea for about 20 minutes. To my surprise, we came across a lot of dolphins. We watched them for around 20 minutes. The motorman was experienced enough to position the boat in a such a... More

I had gone to Johns boat tours with my elderly parents for a dolphin/remote island tour. It was a distasteful experience from start to the end. I was treated rather non-chalantly when I booked the tour at the shop, the booking fellow did not even bother to take my telephone number. Next morning we kept waiting for the bus while... More
