Mumbai City Highlights Small-Group Tour

Victoria Terminus

This Mumbai city sightseeing tour is a great introduction to the city – get familiar with Mumbai and see its top attractions in one day. Start at the Victoria Terminus, Mumbai’s most famous example of Victorian Gothic architecture. Travel across the city on board a taxi and go back in time as you view Mumbai’s wealth of colonial-era buildings. View the Gateway of India, a bold basalt arch reflecting Hindu and Islamic architecture styles. Located at the waterfront, this monument welcomed visitors who arrived in Mumbai by boat.

Continue on a ride through Marine Drive and onto the 200-year old Shiva temple, Babulnath. Here, you may see devout Hindus carrying milk and water to pour over the Linga, the creative symbol that denotes Lord Shiva. A short ride later, see the 14th-century Haji Ali mosque, located on an islet off the southern coast of Mumbai, and admire the beautiful Indian Islamic architecture. Continue back to the city and see the Dhobi Ghat, the biggest open-air laundry facility in Mumbai, where men wash the clothing by thrashing it against slabs of stone.

After your tour, ask your local guide for tips if you’d like to keep exploring. Find out about night shopping at local markets or where to take a walk by the waterfront.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

My guide was Sana and I would recommend her and the tour to anyone visiting Mumbai. She is knowledgeable, funny, and confident, and an excellent person to help with navigating a chaotic city. Her calm confidence made me feel comfortable experiencing Mumbai on my own. She tailored the tour to my interests and clearly knows a lot about the city and how to guide people.

Like many of the other reviews, I cannot praise Pravar to highly, he met me outside McDonald's across from Chatrapti Shivaji Station and then after talking to me suggested if it was not to warm for me that we do a walking tour of the centre of Bombay. This was good for me because I was able to so small insights to the Fort District i would have missed if we had used taxis. We also used taxis to get to other parts of the city and then as a treat Pravar was heading out to Bandra and as my Hotel was up by the Airport at Vile Parle a ride on a Western Line Bombay train was done. When I return to Bombay sometime in the future I will be asking for Pravar for an evening tour of the Bandra District.

This tour was brilliant because of the guide Pravar. He was punctual, respectful and very knowledgeable. He also gave me some very much needed "after sales service" by helping me send my large shopping spoils home. Highly recommended.

I love this tour very much, with special thanks to our guide, Pravar. He is friendly and he knows the history very well. He even took the extra mile to pick us from our hotel, let us try local food and even take the train, which is a great experience! After we are back to the hotel, we wanted to go out to buy something, but were worried about safety. I called Pravar and he gladly brought us out again without any charge. As for this tour, it's a well-planned tour that gives us a good local experience and understanding of the Mumbai city. I highly recommend it to those who want to explore the Mumbai City.
