Timings : approx 09.30-15.30 Cost : Rs 3200 p/p inclusive of everything (except additional drinks.)

A really lovely way to spend the day !! Joanna was such a lovely guide who took us to the 2 mansions. The guides around the mansions were very knowledgeable and treated us to a really good insight into the history of the buildings.

I cant praise the food enough - exceptional and such a lovely location. If you go to Agonda, please book this trip. Its superb.

Thank colinterritt

A small group of us were holidaying in Patnem and decided to take this tour to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. Joanna organised everything really well, and it was a great experience that provided a landmark memory among the lazy beach days. The first leg was about an hour's drive to see a 400 year old mansion house: still owned by the descendants of the original owners and fascinatingly split into two halves, both stuffed with an eclectic collections of curios. Then it was another 20 minute hop to see round another beautiful mansion, being loving restored by its new owners, where we had a delicious lunch in a beautiful setting. It was a great glimpse of life under colonial rule, and a truly fascinating experience.

I had the best time out visiting the old Goan heritage.
In a smaller group that Joanna smoothly took around to the different sites just before larger groups arrived.
I liked the lunch a lot! A perfect time to chat and we had some great conversations.
I so much enjoyed the day out!

Great half day trip to some old Portuguese mansions, finishing with a delicious lunch. Really interesting to see this side of Goan history.

If you want to get away from the for a day than this is great day out.
You get to see some nice old Portuguese buildings and you get a tour by the people who live in them.

Lunch is served on a shady spot in lush garden. We had fish, crab, chicken and all sorts of vegetables.

Joanna who organised the tour is lovely lady that does her very best for her customers!
Thanks again joanna for a great day!
