I always wanted to go for an offbeat trip to witness what all Konkan had to offer. This trip with KTC was full of exploring the other side of Konkan. We had authentic Konkani food and our stays were absolutely amazing and comfortable. Pratik and his team have apt knowledge about the local culture, flora n fauna, food, etc. I was with my parents who are in their 50s and was a bit apprehensive at the beginning if they would be able to enjoy the 4 day trip, but KTC made the whole journey super comfortable and adventurous for them The KTC team has been extremely helpful throughout and took good care right from pick up to drop.

This is my first experience with KTC, we had 4 days and 3 nights plan, the last week of May. We visited beautiful and scenic places in around vengurla, it was complemented with relevant information as per the place. We experienced trail also. No travel is completed without good food. We visited good food joints where we relished local taste. And also home stay was also nice, simplicity always fascinited us. i will look forward for some more trails, nature experiences, explorative activities with KTC THANK YOU KTC TEAM

KTC is an incredible team. I am still to come across a team like them. The level of energy and goodwill they bring into a tour is phenomenal. Their primary motivation is for people to see, experience and enjoy konkan, not money. That is why it’s a different experience with KTC. I hope they continue doing what they do and organise many more trips. All the best and hope to join you guys again soon.

Squeezed in the lap of the Western Ghats and the Arabian sea, every season in Konkan has something unique to offer. Summer is for exploring hidden beaches, water sporting, scuba, scenic mangrove boat safaris, fort trails, wild fruit trails, and more. Winter is for everything summer, plus a major mood for camps and a season of Jatras in Konkan. You get to witness the traditional Dashavtar live theatre in a Jatra. Monsoon is very underrated here.
