The old city of Goa used to be a city of 200,000 people. But that was back in the 17th century. Now it's more like a cute village full of atmospheric architecture and a blend of Portuguese and Indian influences. Though our website you can organise all your ground transportation needs in Goa, including minibus and coach hire, taxi hire, and car with driver hire.

Goa is a small state and almost everywhere can be reached within one hour drive of old Goa. Travel and vehicle rental companies work across the whole region so wherever you plan to stay you'll have similar options.

Minibuses and coach rentals in Goa:

Old Goa is located in the centre of the state of Goa. It's near the coast and just 9km from the state capital of Panjim. The majority of coach and minibus rental companies in Goa are centred on a small area which contains the state's most popular attractions. This includes the old city of Goa, Panjim, and the popular beaches of Calangute and Candolim. Rental companies are exclusively focused on the tourism market, both domestic and international, although there are only a handful of companies to choose from. These are usually car rental companies who also have a small fleet of coaches. Read more about Goa bus and coach rentals with a private driver here.

Airport Transfer in Goa:

Goa International Airport (GOI) is an international hub for flights from across the world. Despite sounding big and grand the airport is actually a military air base, even if the local soldiers look like they've been spending too much time chilling with the hippies than cleaning guns. The airport is in Vasco de Gama, an industrial city that is an eyesore compared to the rest of the state. From Vasco de Gama it's just a short 20 minute drive to old Goa, and nearly all the destinations in the state are within one hour drive.

Meet and greet with the Goa airport taxi drivers:

At the airport you'll be greeted by a wall of taxi touts. Goan taxi drivers assume that every arriving tourist is loaded with cash. They often treat visitors like they're some kind of Arabian oil sheikh with suitcases full of dollars and fat cigars. Ask five taxi drivers the price to your hotel and they'll all offer something different, each based on their assumption of how rich you are.

Taxis in Goa:

Goan taxis come in a hundred different varieties. The city is a blend of Portuguese and Indian, Christian and Hindu, and the local taxi industry has also been influenced with competing ideas. At the very cheapest you can ride on the back of a motorbike taxi. Want more comfort? Try a three wheeled tuctuc. From here there are ancient Tata cars with no suspension all the way up to 12 seater minibus taxis.

How much do you pay? Well, how full is your wallet. Each taxi requires negotiation and if you've got a long beard and a colourful t-shirt it's going to be pretty cheap. Taxi drivers know that hippie looking people don't have as much cash as those in white chinos. A short 10 - 15km journey should be around €5-6 while a whole day hire will be €20+. A fairer way of agreeing a price is to pre book. Our website contains the information of different taxi companies like Goan Taxi Service in Siolim and Fred Travel in Venelim. They will provide you with just a private driver for a transfer from A to B, a half day or full day transport service. Read our ‘taxi in Goa page’ to learn more.

Car with Driver Hire in Goa:

Rather than a taxi, a more popular option for tourists is to rent a car with a driver. This is a more flexible service, especially for people looking for multi day car rental. It can be very cheap, and for €20 you can get up to 80kms a day and your own car and driver. This means you can base yourself by a beautiful beach and then travel each day to a different old town, beach, or set of Portuguese ruins. Alternatively you can get a hotel in the atmospheric city of old Goa and then spend the day on different beaches.

Car with driver services are offered by car rental companies and travel agencies like Angel Car Rental in Calangute, Joey's Car Rentals in Panjin and Mm Car Rentals in Margoa. More information on car rentals with driver in Goa can be found here.

What to see and visit in Goa

Old Goa is in the heart of the state of Goa and within one hour's drive you can explore almost everything the region has to offer. So where do you start?

Beaches in Goa:

Goa Beach

The uninterrupted stretch of sand is one of the reasons Goa became famous for tourism and all along the coast you'll have beaches where sunbathing cows are more numerous than people and if you want to drink cocktails with other people than try Baga and Calngute. For colourful hippies Anjuna has been a mecca for the last fifty years. And if you're a bald European guy who likes to wear speedos then some of the southern resort beaches are your best bet. However, if you want to chat up the cows with nobody else around then there are also kilometres of deserted sand both in the south and very north of the state. The best thing about Goa is that you can visit a different beach every day depending on your mood.

Old Goa:

The old city of Goa is the state's best attraction. If it wasn't for the beaches then it would be flooded with camera wielding tourists. But sun, sea, and drinking chai on the beach generally lulls people into hibernation and ensure they don't explore the regions's cultural wonders. In Old Goa check out one of the largest churches in Asia, the Se Cathedral, or the remarkable enchantment of St Francis of Assisi church. The whole of old Goa is a UNESCO World Heritage site, a status that commends how well preserved they've preserved the 16th to 18th century architecture.

Authentic Goa:

Around old Goa is a fascinating network of quiet roads and tiny villages. It's here where you'll find local Goan culture; old women walking to church, cows chilling beneath palm trees, and paint peeling off old stone buildings. At roadside cafes try a Goan vindaloo, one of India's hottest and most violent curries. Then check out a local market where women haggle for bananas and mountains of chilli are on sale. While the beaches are undeniably beautiful, the ease of connecting with local Goan life is often people's holiday highlight.
