Fascinating walk with a lot of beautiful stories, about get to know what local food is like and knowledge, faces and food. They are doing what is the heritage of Assagao. As a part of the tourism in Goa I can say that eating restaurant food and going to the beach is also a nice experience but to try homemade food from a local person, listen to local music and get aware of the heritage gave me a better understanding of the culture in Goa. It is my duty as a tourist to support the preservation the culture and heritage of Goa. -Melissa Perez
The Heritage walk in Assagao was beautiful, passionate social activist, wonderful home made food, contextual meetings in the forest with the land, the animals and with the culture. Highly recommended for those who are interested in the area, the local people and Goa's history. - Nikki Chapman
This is a fascinating walk. We learnt so much about the local trees and history of Assagao. It was such fun and so interesting. It included a trip to a local bakery, a Baba and a short climb up a hill to see the amazing views and an historical monument. We were also treated to local food and drink, which was delicious and Shakti music. One of the highlights was a visit to a local center where children learn to care for the environment and where they collect and recycle rubbish. They do such amazing work and I would highly recommend this walk. We came back from the walk feeling really happy and uplifted. - Jesper Lagerman
