What you'll do

This experience is curated by Make It Happen which is an Experiential Travel Company that specializes in curating heritage trails and local experiences. This experience will take you through some historical facts, architecture, anecdotes that will take you back to another era and reminisce the culture and heritage that is beautifully preserved by the locals.

We begin at Panjim, which is the capital city of Goa located beside the Mandovi river which is one of the very important rivers of Goa. We then briefly touch upon Old Goa and highlight the significance of the Old City and the logical progression of selecting Panjim city as the new capital.

We highlight the architecture, heritage homes, colors, streets, people and authentic food of Goa in the unplanned area which is the Latin Quarters of Panjim.

We highlight the planned layout, grid structure, iconic buildings, pretty gardens and elaborate houses in the planned area of Campal.

We visit the relative newer area of Panjim which is the located up the Altinho hill and highlight how Altinho is the very different from rest of Panjim.

We culminate the experience by introducing a renowned Goan Fado musician to get a peek into his home and some soulful Fado music.

Deepak made a video of traveling in and around Old Goa and Panjim, so it felt like we were traveling there with him as well. A lot of grounds were covered and he showed us many places of heritage and culture. The landscape is so green and lush and open, which is good to see when we can't travel in person during the pandemic.

We went on a virtual tour of Panjim with Amreen by looking at various buildings and listing to history of the city. There are lots of "grounds" covered with jam packed information.

An interesting experience which gave us very good background information about Old Goa and Panjim, the "new" capital of Goa. We learnt a lot more about the area, which we had previously visited for a very brief real-life tour a couple of years ago. Amreen was a very positive and friendly guide, and his happy attitude cheered us up during gloomy times at home. He was very happy to answer our questions.

It was great to see Portuguese influence in many ways: the ruins, architectures, streets, food. Why the buildings built like this, why the city structure is like that. So interesting

Murali was an excellent virtual tour guide, showing us the beautiful sites of Panjim. The historical stories are very interesting, and the video and photos made me want to be there in person. It was wonderful to see so much green (albeit from afar) on a snowy day at home. Can't wait to visit in person!

I've really missed going to Goa this year so this was the next best thing... I've been to Goa about 18 times and saw some places I am yet to visit. I can't wait until I can go back and do this tour for real
