There's a saying in India, "Athithi Devo Bhava", which means "The Guest is God". Indians consider it a huge honour to have guests in their homes and go out of their way to please them. There's nothing like Indian hospitality. Sadly, most visitors who come to India and stay in hotels never get to experience true Indian hospitality. Goa experiences (GX) offers one of the most luxurious and exclusive homestay experiences in India.
Your host has travelled to 97 countries and their love for Indian food, Culture and Goa would leave you speechless.
Why Goa ?
Goa is a coastal region located in the western part of India famous as the most popular tourist destination. Bounded by the Arabian Sea with pristine beaches on one side and mountains formed by Western ghats on the other side. Ruled by the Portuguese in the past, this region is famous for the fusion of European and Indian culture and beauty. The Western Ghats running through the region make it lush for wildlife and flora too. Goa is one of the most important tourist spots in the country because of its beauty, history and culture. A perfect destination to experience India and have a relaxing holiday.
