What to expect

After pickup from your hotel, travel by air-conditioned coach to the Cumbarjua Canal. Your guide and lifeguard will travel with you on the ferry for a 3-hour crocodile-spotting cruise. Learn why this is the only place in Goa where crocodiles coexist peacefully with the local fishing community. Fresh fruit and drinks will be served on board as you tour the estuary.

Afterward, return to your private vehicle for a 30-minute ride to the city of Ponda, where you’ll visit the Tropical Spice Plantation. Learn about Goa’s farming traditions on a 45-minute tour as your guide explains how locally cultivated spices are used for traditional cuisine and medicinal purposes. You'll also see cashew or coconut feni being fermented and get insight into how locals farm betel leaves by scaling the trunks.

Then try some of the spices yourself with a traditional Goan buffet. Enjoy savory chicken xacuti, prawn curry, and vegetarian dishes at the plantation. Travel next to the Basilica of Bom Jesus, home to the mummified body of St. Francis Xavier, the patron saint of Goa. Visit the Se cathedral, which took 62 years to complete. Learn how the north tower collapsed in 1776 after being struck by lightning, and hear the story of the south tower's golden bell. After a full day of sightseeing, your trip will conclude with drop-off back at your hotel.
