Well organized trip to Grande Island with Hansa beach. Please don’t forget to take you’ll to Hansa beach and not Monkeys beach which is very much crowded. Snorkeling in clear water at Grande Island is nice fun with fishing on boat. All and all very good trip.


Snorkeling in Goa cost is very less compare to other places, trip was good for group as we were around 56 in number. We were take to Grand island in south of Goa from Candolim. Best part was food, drinks and visit to monkey beach. Monkey beach is a beach away from direct access and can only be reached from sea. Had plenty of fun swimming, having sun bath and not to forget under water snorkeling which wasn’t as good as scuba diving in Goa offered by Goa Tours Planner. I am forced to write review as we were treated very nicely with private boats and also taken to another virgin beach of Goa not known to people called Hansa Beach. If you arebooking for group try to bargain and you might get best deals for grand island trip. Happy Goa Touring


Trip to Grand island with snorkeling was similar experience to scuba diving so you only do one trip


I loved the Hansa Beach visit, boat trip was fine, snorkeling was OK but Hansa Beach 5 star. The most beautiful beach in Goa k have seen.
Totally crazy place with peaceful environment no one to disturb you.. only people from your boat around. Loved it. Recommended but do not go in big number.. else Goa will be no different 😉


Grande Island trip was the best of all. Loved it


Enjoyed a lot at Grande island , Hansa beach was also good. Very good tasty food with drinks


Wow!! fascinated with island trip in grande with snorkeling. Though snorkeling wasn’t that good. Private Hansa Beach is far better beach in Goa. Enjoyed the trip with most of Indian Tourist. Boat guide was nice man, guided us well at Grand Island. Food served was not of our taste we being foreigner. food only good for Indian Tourist. Total Value for money the trip by Goa Tours planner as i remember same trip by other tour man are expensive and take you to bad beach called Monkey beach close to Hansa Beach.


Awesome experience, awesome service and a well organized trip to Grand Island. Highly recommended. Rates are also reasonable. Best of all in Goa.


My friends and I booked a yacht from rediscovery cruises in April.. We had the best time ever!!! The staff took really good care of us.. We were served chilled beers and light snacks. All in all it was an amazing experience. Will definitely recommend them to anyone.
