FindAll Goa is Goa's first event and entertainment information site produced by FinDoll Communications and Publications. Launched in November 2004, it was until now a static site and therefore rather limited in the delivery of information. On September 15, 2006, however, we launched our dynamic version.
Besides the brief information on Goa, you will find almost everything you are looking for here. Information is updated on a daily basis and we’ll continue to improve the contents to meet of your requirements.

The first reference point for anyone visiting Goa is FindAll-Goa, the event and entertainment guide that tells you what's happening, where, when, how to get there, who to call... In short, it's your survival and fun guide in Goa. They are distributed Free of Cost. The print run is 10,000 copies every month.

A pocket-sized publication containing the state map and city and beach maps along with the essential tourist guide to Goa
Speak Konkani & Have Fun
A tiny booklet that aims at equipping a visitor with a rudimentary knowledge of Konkani, the local language, so as to feel at home instantly in Goa. A basic English-to-Konkani guide, it introduces basic and working Konkani, so you won't lose your way around Goa . You can begin spouting Konkani like a local the moment you land here! In fact, our first English-to-Konkani booklet was such a hit that we also produced Deutsch to Konkani (Sprechen Sie Konkani Es Macht Spaß) for our German visitors.

Goa, a tiny state in Western India charms and attracts people from across the world. Dubbed as "Paradise on Earth", it’s a land where the sun, sea and sand are still fairly untouched by human greed. While “pieces of Heaven” across the globe have been ruined by over-kill, we believe we can keep Goa unspoilt and beautiful. A love for nature and respect for the land’s culture and history are the first steps towards maintaining its charm and allure. Towards this end, we’ve developed a policy of accepting event information for our website. While we encourage establishments that have events to attract tourists, to appear freely at our site, we do not accept information from or of establishments that are in any way violating laws that protect natural, cultural or historical environments or indulging in illegal activities.
We have a team of 35 people in North Goa (our Head Office) and in South Goa (our branch office). The team consists of Creative staff, Editing staff, Database staff, Research staff, Sales Promotion staff and Customer care staff. We also have a diverse panel of experts from advocates to architects, photographers and event organizers. From the researcher on the road to the proof-reader behind the desk, we all share the same passion: Goa!!
The idea for FinDoll Communications & Publications was conceived on August 15, 1993 at Mae De Deus Church in Saligao. A very symbolic moment for us in a church with beautiful neo-Gothic architecture. While Michael and Tomoko Lobo waited for the mass on the Feast of Assumption, the idea slowly grew....
Michael and Tomoko came to Goa and started to live in their ancestral house in January 1993. Fascinated by the beauty of the land, stayed on, looking for a new opportunity and new direction for their lives.
Findoll Communications and Publications then and FindAll-Goa and every endeavour in between have been a result of their own experiences and dreams as they carved a life on this landscape.
Tomoko (a Japanese national) did not know Konkani (Goa's local language) and started taking lessons from a village girl. Since she did not find a book that could teach her Konkani they decided to put one together themselves. And so Speak Konkani and Have Fun was born!
Next came the town maps.
As they tried to find their way around, they realized how difficult
it was to find anything in Goa. Ask a local person for direction to
a restaurant and he’ll go out of his way to guide you thus: "go
straight and then turn right at the chapel then turn left…"
Soon you’ll find several chapels and innumerable crosses which
lurk at every corner in Goa but never find the restaurant you started
