Organised tours available from Goa Contact - Melo Tours- Candolim, Goa email: email@example.com Web Address: Melotours.com Brian: I can't recommend this Melotours trip highly enough. The place is amazing, and a must see - the architecture set off by a stunning natural backdrop. Ravi from Melotours ran himself ragged ensuring everyone had a good time. The official guide they engaged was helpful and knowledgeable. Even the train trip and hotel in Hospet were a good introduction to 'real' India. Don't miss!!
