Very good tour.Arabian Sea rather rough but it was monsoon season!
The caves are certainly intresting and worth seeing. I had one guide to accompany me to the island, and another who was very good to show me round. I've given only 3 stars for this trip because the journey time is really very long, esp. if you have to be driven through the city to get to the ferry.
This was a good trip. We were picked up by taxi from hotel. The taxi driver got us onto the boat at gateway to India. You can actually get tickets pretty cheap from there. The cost of the trip included pick up, boat trip, miniature railway drive for 5 minutes and the guided tour. The guide met us on the island. He was good but you can get English speaking guides free provided by the Indian government.
The guide was very informative though it was sometimes difficult to understand him.
It is possible to do the same trip for a lot less money on your own though our hotel was a long way out and it did cover the pick up and drop off.
The Elefanta Caves are amazing, definitely a must go. Our driver was great and so was the local guide in Elefanta. He was very patient and informative and knew all the great picture spots. My low rating is due to the guide provided by the company. He was very disinterested and did not really explain much throughout the day. He asked us how much we paid for the tour which seemed unprofessional. He did not explain anything about the India Gate which was his main responsibility during the tour, since we used a local guide in Elefanta. I did another tour with the same company the next day, same driver different guide and it did make a difference. If I would come back, I would not use this company again I think.
