We got picked up from the hotel - exactly at the mentioned time (8:30 am), even though it was around 2 h away from the gate of India. The tour guide was very friendly and helpful. He explained us everything about the tour itself and all other things we were interested in. After reaching the Gate of India we approached the boat right away, the seats can be chosen freely. The boat ride to Elephanta Island takes around 1 h. There we met the „cave guide“. He is a local and know very well about the caves. This was one of the most interesting experiences I had in India. Additionally, he made amazing pictures of us. Both guides were talking a very good English, so we could communicate easily. Overall the tour took around 8 h (without additional costs, of course) for us, because of the long bus ride between our hotel and the gate of India. I highly recommend to do that tour, because of the great organization, no hidden costs and the amazing cave guide.
A wonderful experience with an outstanding guide, Dev, who was exceedingly knowledge, patient, accommodating, and answered all my questions. These caves are less touristy and I was able to see and experience everything at my own pace.
Hotel collection and drop off made this trip easy. Our guide on Elephanta Island was very informative and as he lived locally was able to give us additional information about life on the island.
other guest should take water with them. Nothing to say as it was great to see and was a really good experience. our guide explained everything to know about the caves.
