Fascinating walk with a lot of beautiful stories, knowledge, faces and food. They are doing amazing stuff and I wish everyone who finds themselves in goa could do this walk. It makes the world a better place!
A fantastic group of people working together on issues of sustainability and waste management. Felly Gomes is the man behind the initiative. Get in touch for a host of interesting programs including heritage walks and tours around the beautiful village of Assagao.
Thank you for the great view into the culture of Goa. For me it was not just a walk, it was more about get to know what local food is like and 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 of culture and heritage of Goa.
A really nice time to get a taste of the local culture and history of the area
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 centre 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.
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 Goas history.
