Get your guide ran a faultless tour. Fantastic experience to travel from the picturesque dock near the Gateway to India and Hotel Taj. We were first promptly transported from our hotel by a nice young man who guided us to the ferry. The travel over on the large wooden ferry was a great way to interact with many Indian people who were lovely. On arrival at the Elephanta Island we were greeted by the guide who was fantastic. We caught a small train from the dock to the stairs area where some of our party were carried up the steep stairs on a seat carry system. He guided us thru the aspects of the main cave and it’s history. It’s amazing, but a little ruined by the Portuguese who used it as target practise. Many giant Indian deities carved in the walls. Had a brief shop at the market, which has great souvenirs on then returned back by ferry. Many ferry’s come and go so don’t panic about pissing one.
We chose to book a private car and driver rather than a tour as this enabled us to hand pick exactly which sights we wanted to see and leave out those we were less interested in. This made for a most enjoyable morning! We informed the company prior of what we wanted to see so they could work out the best and most economical route. Essential in the crazy Mumbai traffic! The driver happily obliged and googled a number of sites for us so we had some background knowledge before arriving.
Mukesh was our tour guide and he is excellent. He drove us around to the various spots in Mumbai and did it with enthusiasm, a wealth of knowledge and keen interest in showing us a good time. He was extremely polite and respectful.
I had a fantastic day in Mumbai. Had not much ideas of what to see, but the guys showed me the best places. Very interesting.
Our guide was excellent, and very flexible and accommodating and informative. We greatly enjoyed the day.
