Goa (India) Reviews
Newest Review: ... any problems. Yes, you have to be aware of vehicles and random cows roaming the streets but on the whole we felt pretty safe. Travelling round Goa You have three options when wanting to get around Goa, walking, taxi or a tuk tuk. We used a tuk tuk a few times and then met a really nice taxi driver and decided to let him take us everywhere for the rest of our trip. The tuk tuk's are slightly cheaper then taxis though. We did a couple of trips while we were in Goa and the taxi prices were very reasonable. We went to a waterfall that was about an 90 minute drive away and the whole journey (which included three other stops) cost us £10 whic... more

My best friend and myself visited Goa in March 2006. It was our first time here; we had a fantastic time and would certainly return there. Before we left Before we left for Goa, we were required to buy a Visa. This cost us £30. We downloaded the forms from the Internet and sent them to the Visa office in London. Our visa took about 2 weeks to arrive. The Flight The flight was 10 hours from Gatwick airport to Goa. From the airport our hotel was about an hours drive. Although we were not looking forward to the journey as we just wanted to get to our hotel the drive turned out to be excellent as we got to see various parts of Goa that we ...

I can only start by saying how much this place has captured my heart. If anyone is thinking of visiting Goa, then i can only say DO IT!!!! I first visited Goa back in the early 90's with my parents. It was a package holiday that we got for very cheap. So far I have been to Goa every year since 1993, so does this say something to you? Goa is in South West India, and is India's smallest state. Goa has miles of lovely beaches (66 miles to be exact), from busy Baga beach in the North, to the chilled and peaceful beaches in the South. Goa is actually quite small, and to travel from north to south Goa will take less than ... Read the complete review

What a fantastic part of India. Goa is the smallest state and has much to offer. i visited the area in October 2006 which was perfect as it was the time of the Hindu festival Diwalli which was just outside of the peak season before the area got taken over by tourists. I stayed in an area called Baga beach which is about a 2 mile strip of restaraunts and accomodation which has just about the right mix. The area has a good nightlife which isn't too over the top but just about right. Goa is well known from the sixties and seventies when a group of hippies turned up which really put the area on the map, even today there are still a few of the original visitors from ...

Goa was a fantastic place we stayed at the heritage village, it's a first choice hotel but I booked through winter sunshine holidays. The hotel cost £189.00 all inclusive for both me and my partner. I booked the flights with Thomson fly as a late deal they cost around £130.00 for both of us. This was back in April 2007, we soon realised why the flight was so cheap, the flight out had 39 people on board. It was great we all used the rows of four to lie across and got a great nights sleep. The hotel itself was great, nice food lovely staff and a fantastic pool area. It was very quiet when we went as it was the last week out for flights from England. We ended up ...

I visited North Goa a year ago and found it an exhilarating feast for the senses. When you arrive at the airport it can be a bit overwhelming - men will try and elicit a tip by holding or touching your case on the way to your coach - don't be fazed - find your tour company rep, get directions to your coach and just firmly tell anyone trying to "help" that you are fine and will find your own way and they'll soon leave you alone. If anyone puts a flower garland round your neck expect to be asked for money, so don't be afraid to say "no thank you". We stayed in Arpora, a great, fairly quiet little spot with easy access to the ... Read the complete review
