The exclusive package tours to Goa enable travelers to enjoy their holiday in Goa and relax on the silvery beaches of Goa, view the heritage Portuguese architecture and spiritualize with the marvelous sight of the churches of Goa.

This is the capital of Goa and a small town. Panaji is considered as one of the most beautiful in Goa. The town slopes down to the Mandovi River on one side and to the Arabian Sea on the other. Panaji's engaging Portuguese heritage is a reminder of the days of yore.

Just 13 kms from Panaji, Mapusa is a small town forming the hub of North Goa. The place owes its beauty to the even blend of residential and commercial establishments and gardens. People from all over Goa come here to buy and sell their goods in the famous Friday market only 14kms from Mapusa is the Kansarpal- Kalbadevi temple, believed to be about 800 years old.

This extremely beautiful coastal town, popularly known as Vasco, was originally called Sambhaji. Grand multi-storeyed buildings and a church dominate the city center. Dabolim, Goa's only airport, is just 4kms from Vasco.

This town is often called Antruz Mahal because of the concentration of culture, music, drama and poetry. This town also has many temples - Shri Gopal Ganapati Temple, Mahalakshmi temple, Shri Nagesh temple dedicated to Lord Shiva, Shri Mangesh temple and the Safe Shahouri Masjid.

Old Goa
Old Goa is 9kms east of Panaji, established on the southern bank of the Mandovi River. There are half a dozen imposing churches and cathedrals here. Some of the old buildings have become museums and are maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India.

St Cathedral at Old Goa
The largest church in Asia, the cathedral in Old Goa, is a mighty 16th century monument to the Roman Catholic rule of Goa under the Portuguese. The church's huge Golden Bell is the biggest in the world. It has 14 side chapels and the last chapel, in Mauresque style, preserves a cross upon which a vision of Christ is said to have appeared in 1919 AD.

Church of St. Francis of Assisi at Old Goa
This church is adjacent to the Cathedral. Constructed in pure Manueline style, the interior of the church is adorned lavishly with carvings and exquisite paintings. The convent at the back of this church is now the Archaeological Museum. This museum houses many portraits of the Portuguese Viceroys and fragments of sculpture from Hindu temple sites in Goa.

Aguada Fort
The fort was build by the Portuguese ruler in 1609-1612 to control the entry into the river Mandovi and to protect Old Goa from dormant enemy attacks. The fort also has a Central Jail.
