Goa has notably been called The Pearl of the Orient and India's Paradise. Settled by the Portuguese in the 15th century, Goa intricately blends European history and Indian traditions. (Many of our clients comment on the scattering of churches and statues of Mary next to Hindu temples.) Once a haven for backpackers and newlyweds, it has become a preferred destination for many, including families and luxury travelers. Pictured left: Beaches of Goa
Mumbai, formerly Bombay, is often termed the "New York City" of India. Fast-paced and modern, the city houses India's film and television industry, affectionately termed Bollywood. Though cosmopolitan, the city boasts of spectacular and historical sites: Elephanta Cave Island, Prince of Wales Museum, Crawford Market, Dhobi Ghat, and Marine Drive. Many also elect to visit the Dharavi Slum, made famous in the movie Slumdog Millionaire.
