LONG REVIEW BRACE YOURSELF

After 2 years of delaying and decaying my plans to Goa, one fine day I see an event in the meetup.com posted by Muddie Trails and I registered for the event. There were a lot of expectations and fears from this Goa trip.

I have to say my Goa trip has become a memorable experience and have loads of beautiful things to say about the trip. Thanks to Muddie trails. Our organizer (now friend) Shradha has done a great job in managing itinerary and making things hassle free.

Why Muddie Trails:

- Avoid the hassle of booking rooms and tickets for to and fro.

- Avoid the risk of getting cheated. Goa is that place.

- Reduce the travel cost to travel from place to place in and around Goa.

- Not getting lost - what to see and what to look for.

- Flexibility

What we did:

On the first day of our trip, the driver did a great job by helping us reach Panjim 3 hours earlier than expected. We had to few hours to spare. We visited the Aguada fort, which wasn't on the itinerary. Later we had a normal lunch(keep your expectations on the check regarding food. It's not a food festival). Later we headed back to Calangute beach and did water sports like banana ride, Parasailing, and few other things(The budget for this things are on you). Later we were about to head to Baga beach party. As it was a long weekend, the club was flooded with people. So there was a slight twist in the plan. (These things happen). We did the same party in our room, with all the music and dance and AC on. I could feel Goa in my blood already.

On the second day, we were headed to the highlight of the event. We traveled almost an hour to a secluded island. Throughout the journey, all the needs were fulfilled(Water, food, cool drinks and BEER!). We were lucky to see a few dolphins. Then we went to a part of the sea and did snorkeling. It was once in a lifetime experience(Fishing does really happen if you are lucky enough). Then we reached an island, and it was completely secluded and was stretched for more than 3 KMS. The long stroll along the beach, with hot sand, touching your feet and the waves occasionally kissing was a beautiful experience. Later we had food provided(Once again, keep your expectations in check), which was Ok,Ok. Then later we returned back to our rooms provided, with lots of sand in shirt and pants. Later that night, we reached Baga beach. It was a great scene to watch. The food at night was once again on us.

The third day we came to Calangute beach, shopped and surveyed around the beach for few hours and spent some quality time with all the beautiful people who were part of our trip.

The trip came to a halting end, with emotional hugs and smiles. Three days just flew by and all the best moments of life were packed in those three days.

If you see this event from Muddie Trails to Goa, do yourself a favor it. Go for it.

Reviews for Organizer 4.0
The guide Rakesh Ranjan, was inexperienced ,lacked leadership quality, and most of all was physically unfit for the role of a trek guide. To begin with, the schedules bus pickup was at 6pm, I understand it was raining, but he reached 1 hour late, didn't share bus location inspite of repeated request by multiple people, as a result we were not able to locate the bus, and the bus started 1hr 15 min late.All pickups were only done by 10:30 and all people were extremely hungry but Rakesh stopped the bus at the worst of the restaurants, where the food was unhygienic and washrooms were worse than public toilets. Basically I ended up starving that night.There was an elderly man in the trip who got the last seat, he had back issues and he repeatedly requested Rakesh to arrange front seat for him. But Rakesh didn't make any proper efforts for him and eventually the elderly couple had to cancel the trip and drop off mid way. Basically he lacked leadership quality totally.For breakfast on 5th the place was decent.No complaints there.Lunch on 5th was self sponsored so no complaints again.For dinner we selected a nice place but Rakesh had major budget constraints, we were ready to pay extra on top of his budget allocated but again that place was cancelled.Major disappointment there!! And we ended up wasting 1+ hour in deciding the place. Amazing display of decision making but Rakesh yet again.After dinner we reached homestay at 12pm, the homestay was fine , but again basic water also wasn't provided even after multiple request. How can someone be so inconsiderate? At this point Rakesh has started ignoring our complaints and wasn't giving any response. When we confronted him , he behaved rudely and called me as a negative personality, Seriously!! How unprofessional!!When trek started at 8!m, we continuously walked for 2hours before we got the breakfast. Poha served for breakfast was fine but tea was pathetic.Throughout the trek Rakesh was lack luster and was the last one struggling to walk.His health wasn't good I guess. There weren't any instructions from him and in light of this, people were going in all random directions. We had no idea when to come back and where to assemble.Clear lack of leadership there.It looked like we were guiding Rakesh rather than him doing it for us.Overall the trip could have been much better of we had a responsible , energetic and leader kind of guide. Would not prefer coming by Muddies.com ever again. - by Subhash Sahni for Dudhsagar Trek with Colva Beach of Goa organized by Muddie Trails .
