Booked this trip with tripraja India as the pricing was far more attractive than that of the Reps. Our Houseboat Trip in Chapora River was Really Unbelievable!, 5 star luxury cabins with on-suite bathroom, air conditioning, comfy mattress. Francis our guide was very informative and friendly. Food was excellent and great service. I would highly recommend this trip to all!

The Arrangements from the Travel Company (tripraja.com) was really impressive, even with last minute changes. Pick-up was well organized, even though we were staying outside the usual area. An easily found meeting place was set, and all went smoothly.
The boat trip itself was relaxing. Quite slow but with plenty of opportunities to see dolphins and flying fish. Fresh pineapple and unlimited drinks on the boat as well.
It was apparently a poor day for snorkeling activity in Goa. We tried two locations. At the first, the water was so murky, we practically swam into the rocks before we ever saw them. The second location was clearer, but there wasn’t a lot to see, unfortunately, so it turned into more of just a nice swim.
Beach BBQ is a gross overstatement. We were taken to a beach full of stalls selling all manner of typical tourist junk. Were served some food cooked in a shed surrounded by blue tarpaulins, right next to a stinky toilet house. I guess the food would have been ok if the location had not been so awful.
