KTC has tied up with the warmest and most welcoming locals who are all wonderful hosts. You unknowingly become a part of the family of the caring and loving homestay owners at an extremely picturesque Mochemad village. They are the most simple, hard working and satisfied family you would have ever seen. Make sure to spend some time with them, learn few Konkani recipes, visit the area around. In general, immerse yourself in the entire experience. We would say that all the KTC members have found the essence of life at a very young age. They are sure to go a very long way and we wish them very good luck. We were a group of 4 families, all very close friends who were with KTC from 25th December to 29th December 2021. Right from day 1, KTC team did more for us than we would have ever imagined. And every time when we were captivated by something, we were told..”He tar kaahich naahi” (meaning this is just the beginning..wait for more). “ HE TAR KAAHICH NAAHI” became the unofficial KTC tagline in our trip.
It was a 4 days tour and we enjoyed it thoroughly..the secret beach, secret island, the homestay, Daji and his family, malvani food everything was fabulous and smoothly planned by KTC . Pratik,Nilesh,Chatur and Yasir were nice friends cum guides. To be honest I am going to bring my mother to enjoy the village life style and malvani food here next time around. Thank you KTC for this memorable trip.
Man what a memorable time I spent during my stay here from witnessing a local play (Mahashivratri special from night to dawn) to food trails to hidden gems (beaches, a lesser known sea fort & a natural pool). The best part of the tour was definitely our homestay & the warm hospitality we received was a very humbling experience. The last couple of days have been overwhelming. Thank you so much Konkan travel club for hosting us & making us a part of your rich culture & lifestyle.
The experience of staying with locals, eating their local delicacies, experiencing unexplored hidden gems of Konkan is what only Konkan travel club can make you experience. Prateik is a perfect host, very curious informative, knowledgeable and helpful. We were confused of how to, where to start he helped us bring clarity shared us a perfect itinerary as per our tastes and preferences and we were sold. We have made some amazing connections with Aji and Ajoba of the house we stayed at. Highly recommend them. If visiting Konkan then, what are you waiting for just go ahead and contact Konkan travel club.
