What to expect

With spiritual ceremonies, religious monuments and tasty local food, this tour gives an unmissable taste of Goa's unique culture and cuisine. Packed with highlights like St Anne's Church and Shantadurga Temple, you'll connect with village locals, take part in a Hindu ritual and finish with dinner, dancing and folk music. This is one of our TUI Collection excursions, which give you a local flavour of the destination while showcasing its unique, authentic and responsible values.

More a cultural odyssey than a tour, you'll start by admiring the colonial-era St Anne's Church before heading to the Shantadurga Temple to take part in a traditional Hindu ceremony. An Aarti ritual sees hundreds of lamps and candles lit and raised to the gods in thanks – expect lots of bright lights, incense and blessings.

Afterwards, you'll head into a village home where local ladies teach the secrets of making delicious Goan pickles and give a chance to try some too. Kanta Gauda is a well-known folk artist and at his venue, you'll be given a colourful costume to get you in the mood for a show of cultural dances and classic Indian music. Then after working up an appetite, a feast of homemade dishes are served for dinner.
