This offers a great glimpse into Goa’s colonial and religious gems, with the focus falling on its time as a Portuguese colony. You’ll start at Margao, the state’s bustling commercial capital, with time to explore its market and snap up souvenirs and photos of its colourful stalls. Your last and perhaps most interesting port of call is the Palacio do Deao in Quepem. Facing the Kushavati River, this 200-year old house is a superb blend of Hindu and Portuguese architecture. Enjoy a guided tour of its airy, colonial interiors and exquisite gardens, before having lunch in its restaurant and heading home.
