I'm a Fashion Designer by profession and my cousin, Rohan, is a Mechanical Engineer. We both belong to one of the Goa's Well Known Heritage family (with Portuguese roots), because of which we have been very inclined towards the Goan History and Heritage. Rohan is really passionate about The History of Goa and I love traveling. Combining our love for heritage and travel we thought together as a team we would be the best in spreading our knowledge. Hence we created 'Walk With History Goa', through which we have curated fun and interesting History/Heritage Trails/ Walks in Goa.

Rohan could create a nice story line for the history of old goa, his knowledge and passion makes the difference. The goal lunch with king fish fry was really yummy.

This should be a must-have experience for visitors who want to experience Goa beyond the beaches and bars. Rohan is a great racounter of the stories behind the churches, temples and rural Goa. Rohan and Puja are also very accommodative and fun to be with ! We had an amazing experience.
