Portuguese merchants first landed in Goa in the 15th century, and annexed it soon after. The Portuguese colony existed for about 450 years (one of the longest held colonial possessions in the world), until it was taken over by India in 1961. The region still retains many features from the period of Portuguese rule, including Catholic churches. A majority of these churches were built on top of Hindu temples that were razed during the inquisition of Goa in the 16th century. The region is famous for its excellent white sand beaches, and sun drenched weather. A wonderful addition to any itinerary to take a break before heading home.

"Our individualized, private trip to India was just fabulous! Sunita made the planning almost too easy, the staff who met with us at each arrival/departure ensured all was fine. Our guides, Sunil, Dhilip, Govind, and Vinney, were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating, but the person who made our trip the most enjoyable was our driver Vikram. It was so nice to have a constant on our trip anticipating our every need, even presenting me with the most beautiful bouquet of flowers on my birthday! We will only return if Vikram will be with us. Thanks to all for a trip of a lifetime!"
