Get a personal introduction to the vibrant city of Mumbai on a private, 8-hour tour that includes pickup and drop-off at your hotel, a buffet lunch, and all entrance fees. Explore the city's historic landmarks, colorful public gathering places, colonial-era architecture, and scenic waterfront, as your guide shares local insight and insider stories about the city.
Begin with pickup at 9am from your hotel in Mumbai, then make the first stop of the day at Haji Ali Dargah, a 15th-century mosque and tomb set on a tiny coastal islet. Hear the story of Sayyed Peer Haji Ali Shah Bukhari, and the legends that surround the mosque, which is surrounded by water at high tide.
Take a break for a buffet lunch of Mumbai cuisine, then continue to Dhobi Ghat, an open-air laundry that's used by thousands of people from around the city. This is the perfect place to get a glimpse of daily life for the Mumbai poor, who wash clothing by hand in long lines of open tubs.
See the memorial to Mahatma Gandhi at Mani Bhawan, then visit the Rajabai, the University of Mumbai clock tower that's a Big Ben look-alike. Other colonial era landmarks you'll cover include the High Court and Victoria Terminus Station, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a unique blend of Gothic Revival architecture and Indian themes.
Trace the edge of the Arabian Sea on Marine Drive, taking in the coast from Nariman Point to Chowpatty Beach, a favorite place to cool off from the Mumbai heat. After visiting the coast, this tour concludes with drop-off at your Mumbai accommodations.
