Packed with religious monuments, grand cathedrals and colonial relics, it's easy to see how Goa became known as ‘The Rome of the East.' This tour takes in Goa's two atmospheric capitals – the current one, Panaji, and the former seat of Portuguese power, Old Goa. Pavan, one of our expert local guides, says, ‘Old Goa reflects the historical and cultural legacy of the region, with its impressive architecture, harmonious mix of religions, and UNESCO World Heritage status.'The morning kicks off in Panaji, where a stroll through its colourful Latin Quarter harks back to the days of Portuguese rule. With its rows of pastel-hued houses and wooden balconies, it's like a small slice of Lisbon washed up in India. Otherwise known as ‘Fontainhas,' the Latin Quarter is a testament to the cultural heritage of Goa. Look out for the Portuguese influences adorning historic buildings such as azulejo tiles and ornate windows.Next, it's time to visit Old Goa. Enter via Vasco de Gama's impressive Viceroy's Arch to discover the sacred relics at the Basilica of Bom Jesus, before moving on to the Se Cathedral to see its golden bell – the largest in Asia. In the afternoon, we'll visit a Hindu temple and a spice plantation. With a tour of the estate, you'll learn all there is to know about what they produce and enjoy a brew of its famous spiced tea. And to finish, you'll dine on a sumptuous selection of Goan dishes, followed by a chance to buy some spices to take home.
