Highlights of Mumbai
Feel the bustling energy Mumbai is known for, traveling to the city's most noteworthy destinations. The famous Gateway of India landmark and the singular Taj Mahal Palace Hotel will amaze you. Visit the former residence of legendary activist, Gandhi. In between destinations, stop for some local food and tea, interacting with the local community to sense what it's like living in the city. This Mumbai tour is ideal for newcomers to India, photographers, and anyone looking for a rich cultural experience at a low price.
The adventure begins by meeting your professional guide and enjoying comfortable transportation between your port and first destination. You'll pass through the Gateway of India, Mumbai's most famous landmark. This striking monument is a basalt arch overlooking the Arabian Sea. In older times, the Gateway of India would be the first thing visitors traveling by boat would see. After passing through the imposing arch, you'll see the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, a picturesque five-star establishment praised for offering the highest level of service in India.
Driving along, visit Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a historic railway station with captivating architecture. Then, visit Dhobi Ghat, where you will see row upon row of colorful clothing hung to dry in the sun at the world's largest outdoor laundromat.
Next, move on to Gandhi's former residence. Mani Bhavan acted as the focal point of Gandhi's political activities in Mumbai between 1917 and 1934. Inside, there's an interesting museum and library commemorating Gandhi. Departing from Mani Bhavan, you will see a mosque located on an islet off the coast of Mumbai called Haji Ali Dargah, a Jain temple, and Kamala Nehru Park.
One of your tour's final destinations is Malabar Hill, the highest point on the island, offering scenic views of Mumbai's breathtaking skyline. Enjoy a ride through Marine Drive, a C-shaped concrete boulevard also known as "Queen's Necklace," due to its street lights resembling a string of pearls at night. You'll end your tour with a visit to the Crawford Market, a lively merchant center providing the opportunity to fill your spice rack at home with flavorful authentic Indian spices.

This tour was excellent. The pick up from the dock was well organised in a chaotic environment and the tour included all the high spots of Mumbai. Our tour guide Oves made the tour and was very informative. Great value for money and would recommend.
This tour gave us a quick but good taste and view of Mumbai. The tour guide was very good and gave us all the basic information that you would expect for such of quick tour. He kept the tour moving along without rushing anybody. I would recommend this tour to anybody who wants a quick view and taste of this city. The only thing that I would recommend to drop from the tour is the tasting at the end of the tour. It was not necessary and did not brought anything to the tour. I would replace that time with maybe an inside tour to some of the great monumental building in the city

Tour was excellent and covered many sights for the price. We didn’t have enough time for shopping as we were rushed to a restaurant for snacks. Would have preferred some shopping time instead of the restaurant since we were heading to the ship afterwards. Driver wanted to get us back to the ship on time. But would highly recommend this tour. Ask to skip the restaurant..not worth it!

We enjoyed a brilliant tour with Oves in Mumbai which included lots of extra things that we weren't expecting even a trip to a local restaurant to try a local lunch pancake delicacy at no extra cost. Also a visit to where Gandi lived. we had an action packed tour with plenty of information from Oves Well done we shall definitely try your shore excursions
