“The guide was very knowledgeable and could tailor the tours according the cultural background and interests of the participants. I am from England and have been to India on business 3 or 4 times and I learnt a lot about India, Indian history, and cultural matters. I am very happy to have spent two days in her expert care.”

“The Panjim heritage walk was a wonderful experience . The guide was terrific, had great passion for Goa and was able to explain the heritage structures as well as the history and culture of the place in depth. The stories of Portuguese legacy was very interesting. The food was Goan and delicious. I would strongly recommend 5 Senses for any tour in Goa!”
