You have the choice of two tour options, which are customizable based on what you want to see: Elephanta Caves plus any four sights, or, any five sights except Elephanta Caves. The Elephanta Caves are located on Elephanta Island, a short boat ride away.
In the city, perhaps visit the Gateway to India, an iconic structure sitting next to the legendary Taj Hotel. Cruise down Marine Drive along the coast to get an expansive sense of the city, or visit the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya, Mumbai's premier art and history museum, which houses 50,000 historical Indian objects. Stop by late-18th-century Mahalaxmi Temple, a famous temple dedicated to Mahalakshmi, the central deity of Devi Mahatmyam.
If you want to go off the beaten path, consider Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghat, a unique feature of Mumbai: a dhobi is a traditional laundryman who collects dirty linen, washes it and returns it neatly pressed to your doorstep. Gawk at row upon row of concrete wash pens, each fitted with a flogging stone, where the clothes are soaked in sudsy water, thrashed on the stones, tossed into huge vats of boiling starch and hung out to dry. Or maybe you'd like to visit a slum; Dharavi slum, founded in the 1880s, thought to have up to one million residents.
Your tour ends with drop-off at the port.
