Sawani, a PhD student in archeology, guided me on an early morning. Her genuine, pleasant demeanor and wealth of knowledge about Goa, history and culture was exactly what I was looking for. While driving to the sites or at their location, Sawani explained the reasons why people, past or present, created the current structures, temples, or art in their environment. The rock art, cave, bubble lake, temples and the spice farm gave me invaluable insight into Goan people, reflective of history, geography, religion and agriculture. The car ride to the locations is relaxed and beautiful. Every location we visited was so distinctly different that it captures another side of history and livelihood. The meal at the spice farm was incredible and the 5th generation owner of the farm is warm and incredibly generous. I highly recommend this tour to experience insight you won’t get anywhere else. By the end, it felt like Sawani was a good friend and it was so hard to leave South Goa. Thank you!

Really fantastic day-trip. Just the two of us, together with our guide who seemed to be a bottemless pit of knowledge about the sites we visited and their history. But almost more importent to us was her willingness to share her experience and wealth of knowledge about everyday life in Goa today.
Our only disappointment was that we were not able to enter the caves - especially having seen similar caves (in North Goa) on line. Not sure whether she felt we were too old to cope with the physical effort involved or the access was no longer possible. But it really didn't spoil the whole experience and we would recommend it to anyone interested in the historical and archaeological background to the region.

Incredible is the word for this experience. Sawani was an archaeologist who took Ian on this adventure. The rock art was out of the world and so incredibly beautiful. Sawani helped us understand the style and the meanings. She is an awesome person and we also visited a lake with mysteries and the highlight was authentic Goan lunch in a working farm. Do this

This tour blew my mind. I never knew Goa had 9000 year old cave drawings. We got an archaeologist to guide us on this tour through the caves as well as a remote lake with mysterious bubbles! Overall it was a fantastic day with mystery and our curiosity awakened! I would urge people coming to Goa to explore this.
