Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at your hotel lobby in Goa at 9am and head to Ancestral Goa. Study the enhanced evolution of architecture of Goa here through your guide. Visit the Braganza House which was built in the 17th Century. The artifacts, collected by the family over a number of years, has added to the beauty of the house. In the house lies a Great Salon, a large ballroom with the floor made of Italian marble, antique chandeliers from Europe adorning the ceiling and heavily carved, ornate rosewood furniture. What stands out among the furniture is a pair of high-backed chairs bearing the family crest which was given to the Pereira Braganza family by King Dom Lus of Portugal. Most of the furniture dates back to the 18th century and is made from local seeso (Martel wood).

Next head to Palacio do Deao, a Palatial house which occupies 11,000 sq ft of floor area. Enjoy the unusual style of architecture as it has an interesting blend of Hindu and Portuguese cultures. The Palacio do Deao was built in 1787, by a Portuguese noble man. With its rich history, unique architecture, art and artifacts, it is a showcase of Goan culture and tradition depicting the lifestyle of the past. You will enjoy Indo-Portuguese cuisine on the belvedere, overlooking the Kushavati River.

After sightseeing, stop for lunch around 1:30pm (at your own expense). Once finished, visit Goa Chitra Museum, a museum based in the former Portuguese colony of Goa. See a large collection of over 4,000 artifacts focusing on Goa's traditional agrarian technology and lifestyle. The collection includes examples of local pottery, farming tools, musical instruments, ancient carts and palanquins from different points of the past. It also showcases an organic farm for the cultivation of various vegetables, herbs, spices, sugarcane, and rice, all staples of the area in coastal western India. End your journey at 4:30pm, sit back and relax on the drive back to your hotel in Goa.
