What you will experience

Without much ado we will head right away from our hub at Old Goa, we ride to the grand Viceroy’s Arch. Having spent a little time here we ride further inland to wander the lanes of Old Goa to arrive at the Church of St. Cajetan and its stunning domes. Riding on, and leisurely enjoying the sights along the way on we'll break the journey to explore the elaborate squares that house some of the finest churches in Asia, amongst them the much loved Se Cathedral, St. Francis of Assisi, and St. Catherine Chapel. Best in the store is the Basilica of Bom Jesus, abode to the relics of the highly revered St. Francis Xavier.  There are some religious souvenirs on sale if you wish to browse here for a bit.

On our e-bikes, we ascend to Monte Chapel and delight at the absolutely breath-taking panoramas of Old Goa from our beautiful perch by the chapel. Our tour ends on a sweet note as we rest for a while and resuscitate ourselves with some popular Goan sweets and savouries from one of the oldest bakeries in Goa.
