We booked a customized tour with Abhinav and Jigs that was absolutely amazing. They are the most empathic, friendly, integer and client driven professional guides. For us they were the key to understanding a lot more about the Goan and Indian culture. We enjoyed an authentic, fun and fascinating experience we will never forget!
Some buddies & I went on a personalised Panaji bike tour organised by The Bicycle Trip Goa on Sunday!!
It was a superb & enjoyable experience & I would highly recommend it to everyone, tourists as well as locals.
It wasn't just a regular tour, it was a very well curated trip around Panaji with alot of information about the history, culture & heritage about Goa's Capital.
Jigeesha & Abhinav are wonderful hosts & have definitely done alot of research to make this a beautiful & lovely ride. Inspite of being brought up in Panaji, I learnt alot of facts about our lovely town, which I wasn't aware of before. They also personalise the tour based on the guests preferences.
Apart from being very well curated, it is eco-friendly, healthy & works up a good appetite. It is truly a unique experience in Panaji.
They also have bicycle trips to Old Goa & Divar, which I plan on trying out soon!!
Having only recently moved to Goa, we'd been wanting to explore its history and culture in an interesting way. We finally found the perfect way to do this yesterday.
Jigeesha and Abhinav from The Bicycle Trip Goa gave us the perfect introduction to the rich and varied history of Panjim, from the 15th century till the present day. They're very easy to talk to, are extremely knowledgeable about Goa's history, and know their way around the city like the back of their hand.
The bicycle ride itself is beautifully paced, starting nice and slow with regular stops, later moving into slightly longer stretches of riding. All this riding is thoughtfully interspersed with rest stops at quaint little cafes and bakeries to sample local delicacies.
A cycling tour with The Bicycle Trip Goa is a must-do for every visitor to Goa, particularly because cycling is a great way to capture the laid-back energy and vibe of Goa. It's also hugely earth-friendly. If we want to explore a new place, isn't it best done either on foot or on cycle? This way, we leave nothing but our footprints behind... :)
The trip was amazing! I did the riverside tour but mentioned I loved dessert so they managed to squeeze in a few dessert stops for me- I am forever grateful for that chocolate cake. I'm not a big rider but the pace was perfect and I learned loads a the same time. I recommend this as a must do in Goa :)
This was a very good experience. Thank you very much for the very good an informative morning in Panjim. Unfortunately we are already flying home, otherwise we would have liked to do another tour with you.
This tour was simply amazing! Could have not asked anything better! Guides were awesome, we had amazing local breakfast in a really lovely vacation home in Divar island. Owner of that place was really friendly and showed us around the place. It was nice to see a bit different side of the state. It was not simply just a bike tour but as well you got to see amazing heritage, culture and history that you would not meet the other way. When in Goa, bike tour with these amazing people is a must! �
This has been one of the best cycling trips that I have ever taken. The duo of Jigisha and Abhinav are not only friendly, they are efficient, professional, caring and most importantly, they know what they are doing extremely well. They took us thru the city of Panjim, telling us stories about the history of the city in the most riveting way. And they always had answers for our questions. The side of Panjim that we saw today thanks to them was something I wouldn't have otherwise. Along with all the stories, this gave us so much perspective. This us a must do for all cycling enthusiasts and history buffs.
Jigeesha & Abhinav were brilliant hosts. Very knowledgeable, full of fun facts & prompt. The trip helped me discover a side of Goa that I had never experienced, even though I have been there 6-7 times. It was great fun riding the bicycle in the amazing goa weather & very scenic as well. Lot of history & culture. Would definitely recommend doing this trip whenever you are in Goa next!
Jigeesha and Abhinav run an informative and engaging cultural tour of Panjim city filled with tidbits that only locals would know. There is a set route based on the city's chronological history that is very well thought-out and presented by both of them. They have a nice chemistry and a laid back style that made me feel comfortable and at-ease. I really appreciated the way they catered the tour to my interests without getting off track. For example they had no problem taking some extra time for me to see the Hanuman temple, the market, and even searching for a juice bar (hard to find in Panjim, surprisingly, but they did!) They were also happy to give recommendations and offer advice for the rest of my time in Goa. Highly recommended for those experiencing Goa for the first time or looking to see the place from a fresh perspective!
We had a great ride today! We learned a lot about Historical Panjim, visited places we would never have discovered on our own. The bikes were top, and we enjoyed the company of our hosts. That made it also very personal! We recommend it strongly!
