What you'll do

The whole experience is about a group of strangers who end up as friends while experiencing the best of an awesome city- a new adventure, the start of new memories. The Margao City Walk starts from the Margao Municipal Council, established in 1905. I take the guests on a medium-paced walk for 2 hours with an average of 10 stops at regular intervals. In these stops, I cover the important landmarks and monuments of the area, talking about their history, cultural significance, and other trivia. The focus is on local stories and legends. We also have lively discussions with locals and conduct a review of architecturally-rich homes, some of which date over 200+ years. We end the Walk with some authentic local breakfast at a cafe established in 1935 and a group picture.

This walk is hosted by Varun :) The City of Margao has a special place in my heart - the city that raised me for a good part of my 26 years. It helped me graduate as an engineer and then came those four long years away from this beautiful place - when I tried my hand at designing software in Bangalore and Germany. Wiser after all the experience, I'm back to serve as your local guide to my home. Traveller, explorer, professional dreamer and a fun host - that's Varun for you :)
