South Goa is so beautiful, I just cannot tell how much I loved it. I went along with Atlantis Water Sports Goa in shared vehicle system and I met the most beautiful souls during this trip. The place was just awesome and I am a happy customer of the team.
I went to Goa with my friends and since we are students we cannot spend so much. South Goa trip by shared vehicle was our most economic friendly option we had. South Goa is so beautiful and it is worth visiting. Thank you Atlantis Water Sports in Goa for the best time and helping us to stick with the budget.
Myself and my friends went on the South Goa tour organised by Atlantis. It was a great price deal we got. At the same time never expected the services to be so satisfying and worth for what we paid. We toured around in a shared vehicle and it was again so comfortable than what we thought it would be. They did a great work organising this for us.
South Goa has such a magnificent structure. Atlantis Water Sports did a great job or making this tour a memorable one for me and my family. We went on a shared vehicle and toured the southern side of Goa. The team is extremely friendly and showed great hospitality for us. They made it so comfortable for every individual and I really want to try out the North Goa tour also.
I love travelling and I love it even more when I travel alone and meet folks over there. This was the time when I felt like going for local trips inside Goa and so I went in with the bus trip from Atlantis water sports. It was all worth and amazing, we were taken to all major places and I was with an amazing bunch of people and everything turned out so well that I even made out a video of that entire short little trip. Special thanks to Jafar of Atlantis, he was the best guide you could get and the show-stealer. Mohit Manay. Raipur
