Goa Travel Guide - Excursions in and from Goa, India

Book your Goa Excursions with Day Tripper Tours and Travel

Goa is a small green and pleasant land on the west coast of India.

You can experience the local culture and countryside and beyond with a varied selection of sightseeing tours and excursions available. A number of companies operate a variety of similar excursions which can be booked more cheaply in Goa than through your travel agent in the UK.

We recommend Day Tripper Tours & Travel for your excursions whilst in Goa. Either book on-line or wait 'till you get there. Great value and great service.

If you can make the time on the evening of day 2 we recommend you visit the Krishna Temple in Udupi - One of Dan Cruickshank's "80 Wonders of the World" One of the few active temples that permit outsiders in to see the worship and rituals surrounding their deity. The noises, sights, smells and sounds inside the temple and outside will entrance you!
