Au programme

The walk begins Tobacco Square near the main Post Office in Panjim and then leads us into the heritage precinct of St. Thomas ward, passing the small chapel of Sao Tome.

We visit the famous old 31st January Bakery, and then move into the Fontainhas area passing the chapel of St. Sebastian.

This leads to a cluster of interesting buildings around Panjim Inn, Portuguese Foundation, and Galerie Gitanjali.

We give you an exclusive insider access to visit a famous Goan musician and get insights into Portuguese influence on Goan music. Get mesmerized by Fado, Latin and Folk music performed by the musician.

We then return to the Post Office by a different route highlighting the elements and places of interest that liven up the Latin Quarters in the evenings .

Our presenters will highlight all the above places with fascinating history and anecdotes that are unheard of and will share a very unique perspective of the making of Fontainhas.
Other things to note
The experience may not be enjoyed by infants and toddlers.
We suggest you to bring your own water bottle, preferably a reusable water bottle as we would like to minimize the usage of single use plastic products.
Wear comfortable footwear and carry a Hat/ Cap.

We loved the experience! Nelson was a great storyteller, and it was illuminating to learn about the history of the fountainhas area of Goa. Would highly recommend.

Raysancia from team Make it happen was a great host. Huge cheers to their entire team for such flawless execution. I and friends had great time throughout the walk and at the end while we danced to the musician's beats!

We stumbled upon this gem of a walking tour of Fountainhas in Airbnb and we were extremely lucky to have booked a private 2 hour tour during busiest xmas week. It was well planned tour with each and every important building in Fountainhas explained beautifully with thoughtful insights.. I had already visited Fountainhas before without a guide, and trust me anyone visiting this beautiful place must have a guide explain the importance of this place and no one can do it better than “Make it happen”. The tour also included a visit to one of the oldest bakery and few sweets were part of the package and culminated in a café where we were welcomed by an amazing musician who sang some nice xmas, Portuguese and Konkani songs.. I got a call few hours before from owner “Murali” that one of the story teller was off sick today and he checked with me the possibility of rescheduling the tour, since we are about to fly back to Bangalore the next day, we couldn’t reschedule, and Murali himself volunteered to be our story teller which was a very pleasant surprise and very refreshing to see one of the owners engaging the guests, which speaks volume about “Make it Happen”’s professionalism and passion. I sincerely thank Murali to have hosted us that day and truly made our evening happen 😊

A must do when in Goa/ around Panjim - and a novelty for people not staying in Fountainhas (we were staying here). However, despite having explored the area on foot in the past two days - we learnt so many finer nuances which we would never have known on our own! The icing on the cake was the performance by a Goan ole’ chap and the visit to the art gallery! Keep up the good work guys!

I was a bit skeptical before the tour but Amreen put all my worries to rest. My mother was able to walk throughout the whole experience due to well timed pauses and the immersive storytelling by Amreen. It felt like I was hanging out with my friends. The small treats and drinks added next points to the whole experience. 12/10 would recommend.

This was a fantastic experience. Amreen had some great stories to tell about the various spots along the walk. That kept us informed and entertained. She did a great job of connecting with us and was flexible and accommodating. And a couple of spots we hit on the walk were magical. Highly recommended!
