Where do I even begin, I visited a part of Konkan a few years back & I was sure that I will come back again & now when I got a chance to visit it again I had a completely different experience from the last time I was here. 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. See you guys again very soon πŸ™‚

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.

Where do I even start about my trip with Konkan travel club...Me and my husband had the most amazing 2 days exploring offbeat Konkan with them. If it would not have been for Konkan travel club we would have never ever experienced the rural, local authentic konkan side. 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.

Not just a trip but a therapy! Didn't know lockdown would hit again and will be all isolated, but my gut feeling said this trip should be a now or never calling. And yes, random plans work and it worked again this time but with Konkan Travel Club. These guys chalked out our plan in a Span of two days and we booked it with them.. it was just 2 of us and all 3 of them pampered us like anything. With zero network, this break was most awaited. Right from Daji kaka's lip smacking food to Onkar, Richa and pratik's hospitality everything was bang on! Secret locations, endless shopping and the overall vibe made me forget lockdown blues. I'm glad I took this trip.... I don't regret being caged now and once the curfew is off I am again going back here..To come back with more stories...Keep it up guys!!! 2

Where to start from... Amazing people amazing places.. Amazing food... And most importantly the treatment they provide ... I booked an private staycation and trip for me and my friend who came from abroad ( the reason behind telling this detail is I wished for everything authentic malvni and konanki experience) .. KTC said you just sit relax and he will smile... They kept their promise.. We started off with amazing waterfalls temple and authentic food a nice cozy stay to relax.. The next day was even beautiful they planned beach stay like literally you just have to look up and there you go sea beach happy place.. At night we stayed by the beach in tent under the sky near water like a dream fairy tail (ps not exaggerating) and the next day we saw a fort blue lagoon beach and yes last day I wished for a surprise party and tadaa... KTC arranged that as well for us in goa... Again cozy stay music cake foood sea.. Again fairy tail... Thank you so much for this amazing experience and wish to come back soon.. πŸ’
