Goa Sightseeing

 
Goa tourism's Open Top HOHO Tour Bus

Great News! Goa Tourism recently launched for the first time Hop On Hop Off Goa Sightseeing Bus. HOHO bus has always been the best way to See the places in Goa and world over

We had the fortune to take the ride of these buses and hence today we are sharing our first hand experience of Goa Tour with these buses.

Basic Information about the buses 

There are 2 types of buses single decker and double decker.
Both the buses have open section to enjoy the open view experience. See the images below.

The buses come with WiFi, GPS, Audio Video Entertainment System

Places Covered:

The HOHO Goa bus covere 19 + tourist spots namely: Miramar Beach, Basilica of Bom Jesus, Se Cathederal, Dona Paula, Science Museum, Goa Museum, ASI Museum, Arch of Viceroy, Panjim Church, markets, Kala Academy, River Cruise Point, Casino Point, Mandovi River drive pass ....

Pick Up Points:

We found that the service can be accessed from HOHO Goa, Patto Plaza, Panjim.
Address: Shop No. 4, Kamat Towers, Near Bank of India, Patto Plaza, Patto, Panjim, Goa 403001
Hours:
Open today · 8AM–6:30PM
Phone: 074474 73495


We were staying at Calangute and we were 4 of us, it took us 35 minutes to reach to the pick up point.

Advice: Take a bus from Calangute bus stand to Panjim bus stand. It will be economical as well. Costed us less than Rs 100 or you can hire a 2-wheeler @ Rs 150/day

Other Pick up points are :


Mirmar Circle, Dona Paula Circle, Paryatan Bhavan all can be easily accessed .

Timings:

We started our tour at 9 am , buses are also available at every 45 minutes. It would be better to start early to get maximum time for sightseeing.


Goa Tour:

A double decker bus came to pick us up from the starting point. We sat on the open top enjoying the panoramic view of Goa, the view of the Mandovi River was simply mind-blowing. See the pic below.

There were around 20 tourists with us and we were all simply awed by the overwhelming view of Goa.


Loved the Hop On Hop Off Concept!

We got down at 6 places of our choice and spent time to our heart's content. Thanks to the Hop On Hop Off Concept. The buses works like metro available at each tourist spot every 45 minutes. If you like to visit a place, Hop Off and explore the place, to go to the next point simply take the next bus and go to the next point. Keep your ticket handy all the time

Miramar Beach

We got down at Miramar beach and spent 45 minutes which was enough to visit the place.

Dona Paula


Next we got down at Dona Paula a famous tourist spot famous for its photogenic view and various films shot here like Singham.

Dona Paula

Basilica of Bom Jesus

This is one place, we all wanted to get down as it is one of the 38 Unesco World Heritage Site in India. The tomb of St. Francis can be seen here.The church is huge and is worth a visit.

Basilica of Bom Jesus


ASI Museum

Just opposite of Basilica of Bom Jesus is the Grand ASI Museum, housing hundreds of Painting, sculptures, items depicting Portugal history in Goa.

Asi Museum, Old Goa


Panjim Church

The church  is one of the main churches of Panjim, Goa and is famous for its grand architecture and building. The church has witnessed many movies shot here. It was very peaceful inside and we liked the overall feel of the place.

River Cruise Point:

Next we took a drop at River Cruise Point around 5:30 pm . Everyone told me to experience this once in Goa, so we did and it was marvelous.

Casino Point: 

It was something we had to visit for the sake of experience, as we have never been to any Casino and nor we ever gambled before. ( nor we intended to!)  But, yes the experience of Sitting in a Huge Cruise Boat with a Casino inside was an amazing experience. There are 2 prominent Casinos - Casino Royale and Deltin.

Casino Point


The whole day tour went beyond our expectations and wildest imagination. We highly recommend it.
