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.

Excellent tour!

This tour was a highlight of our trip. Our small group saw the main sites of Mumbai with just the right amount of time at each stop. Our tour guide "Nosh" was funny & informed. We saw the promised attractions of the railway station, outdoor laundry etc. and because traffic wasn't bad we also saw the lunchbox boys and had extra time at the Taj hotel. Highly recommend this tour and this tour guide.

We had an exceptional guide - very knowledgeable and interesting. The group was small, so we didn’t have to wait for lots of people when we got off the minibus. The sights we saw were fascinating and the snacks at the restaurant to end the trip were delicious. Definitely a worthwhile tour to book.
