This was the only book we used while travelling Goa. Tourists with other guides found that they just did not have enough detail to make the most out of a holiday. The authors had focused on what was important, especially in a region where you never take anything for granted. Eating out in India conjours up all sorts of images even to the well travelled, but the rough guide really did suggest the safest, cleanest and tastiest of shacks and restruants to try. It helped us adapt to and deal with the unfamilier culture that surrounded us. We found everything worth seeing, even when it required constant referal to the guide for directions. This book is a must, and made a real difference to our stay.

I studied the guide before our holiday but read it from cover to cover whilst we were there. We really would have been lost without it, in fact there were tears and tantrums when I thought I had left it in a bar ! The reviews of the restaurants were extremely accurate and from the guide we discovered many of the Goa's beautiful restaurants which we would never have found otherwise. The reviews on temples was also extremely useful and explained in great detail what you would find around the temple areas and also inside the temples.
We found that even though we were not in Goa as 'backpackers', it still covered many more superior places and not just the beach huts bars (that are still wonderful!)
The only thing I would disagree with would be the review about the famous Anjuna Fleamarket - I personally thought it was fantastic and great fun bartering with all the locals there. All in all, I personally wouldn't travel to Goa without it.

I looked around for a guide book specifically about Goa and the Rough Guide was the best one I could find. On holiday in Goa we used the guide a lot for sightseeing and to obtain information about other resorts, restaurants etc. It was very helpful and guided some of our expeditions. Some of the descriptions of resorts were very honest particularly (regrettably) the account of where we were staying! However the guide was written in 2010 so needs some updating for 2013/14.

I found the guide a functional reference book of Goa, India. Eventhough the province is quite small the book covered all areas in reasonable detail. If you are looking for a full detailed directory of services with Goa, then this book lacks the depth you would be looking for. I found that where the guide identified an ATM machine there was in fact 3, or where there was 1 internet shop, there was in fact 5. Saying that, it does cover everthing a traveller may require, however not in the detail it could of. In the defensive of the author, travelling is all about discovery, which this book encourages you to do. The section covering Old Goa was excellent, covering the history of the churches and cathredrals in great detail.
