Fort Aguada in Goa
A seventeenth-century shining beacon that once directed Portuguese sailors who dreamt of trading spices from the Konkan Coast is now thronged by vacationers wanting to make their Dil-Chahta-Hai dreams come true.
Built by the Portuguese, the formidable Fort Aguada sits south of the Sinquerim Beach in Goa near the mouth of the Mandovi River. Facing the inviting waters of Arabian Sea, a lighthouse inside the fort attracts visitors throughout the year. Today its remnants stand as a testimony to the glory days of Portuguese Empire. Its name is derived from the Portuguese word ‘Agua’ which stands for ‘water’ as the fresh spring near the hill provided constant supply to ship crews. An engineering marvel of its time, this prized bastion kept off Dutch and Maratha invaders for many decades before it was finally captured by the British.
Its lighthouse used to house the famous bell from the Church of St Augustine which now tolls in the Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception in Panaji. Besides the five-star Fort Aguada Beach Resort, the complex also has a fresh water storage tank, one of the largest in Asia built in that era. This is an ideal place to get a peek into the history of the region.

Trip to GoaI've traveled A LOT in my life, but this was the best trip I've ever taken and it had everything to do with using this travel company and Mr aman Gupta plan our Honeymoon. Everything from the initial trip planning process to the actual trip itself was seamless and made for an unforgettable experience. During the planning process, we were provided many options and recommendations to plan a trip best suited to our travel style. Mr. Aman Gupta responded to all emails and phone calls quickly. He is a true pleasure to work with. We decided on a Five day trip starting in delhi to goa. Upon our arrival in each location, we were greeted by Mr aman Gupta guides or representatives. We never had to stress out about transportation or late arrivals. Everyone was on time (and early in most cases). We felt so welcomed and taken care of. All guides and drivers were courteous, knowledgeable and professional. The day trips we had were the perfect combination of fun, educational, and relaxing. We felt we had the perfect amount of time in each place and did the right activities for our taste. Along the way, our travel agent Mr Aman Gupta was checking up with the guides to make sure everything was going well. We even met up with him towards the end of the trip so he could make sure everything went well. He really goes above and beyond in customer service. He really cares for his clients, and I hope we get to travel to Vietnam or its surroundings again so we can use his services again. Hotel staff and cab driver staff are very helpful and well behaviour,
Trip to GoaHotel rooms are good to stay, service is also very good I faced issue only about some bugs and mosquitos but that also happen in that atmosphere...
