What you can expect

Cross the seas of Ribander and discover the serene island of Divar with this tour! Visit this riverine town for a laid-back exploration of Goa's olden rural villages and attractions. For your first stop, check out the 16th century St. Matthias Church for a glimpse of the island's Catholic roots. Walk farther along the trail and stumble upon Our Lady of Candelaria Parish, a quaint chapel built next to the Saptakoteshwar Temple's ancient tank. See this interesting juxtaposition of Goa's two major religious beliefs and get more historical insight from your English-speaking guide. Head next to a Portuguese house for lunch and watch how pav - a Goan delicacy - is made at a local bakery. Learn a few Goan recipes from a local chef during your stay as well. Extend your educational session with a trip to the sluice gates, where you'll learn about the intricacies of the Khazan system - their traditional fishing method. For the last part of your journey, see the churches on the island by the bird tree. Catch a glimpse of Piedade Church, one of the greatest Baroque churces in Goa. End the tour with a ride back to Goa via ferry.
