Full description
This tour tells the story of the transformation of Mumbai from a sleepy fishing hamlet into the melting pot it is today. Mumbai is the commercial capital of India and home to India’s mammoth film industry known as Bollywood. The full-day tour showcases all aspects of Mumbai, from the city’s narrow geographical layout, its coastline, the neighborhoods that make up the city, the old heritage district, the old commercial and residential districts, the up-and-coming areas, and the movie studios of Bollywood. Your tour guide will take you to all the must-see places in Mumbai, including the Gateway of India, the Regal Circle, Bombay University, the Oval Maidan cricket ground, Dhobi Ghat, the Town Hall, Victoria Terminus, the Municipal Building, Colaba Market, Marine Drive, Chowpatty Beach, and Mani Bhavan. This is an ideal opportunity to learn about the history and culture of Mumbai, and to experience the phenomenon of Bollywood.

  • Photos cannot be taken unless permission is given. (Professional cameras are not allowed at shooting sites, unless permission is granted.)
  • Please keep your mobile on silent mode when shooting is in progress and keep silent.
  • Most studios are at locations distant from the city center and thus may take considerable time to reach. Kindly bear with such unavoidable consumption of time.

Very Little Guiding - Hire taxi instead

Our guide did not much more than announce the name of the site we were visiting and guide us back to the car. The day had 45 minute rides in the vehicle without any information about the city provided. We asked 2 questions which the guide did not know, the size of Mumbai and when Ghandi was born, but we were able to google them. You would enjoy the day more hiring a taxi and doing this itinerary yourself and there is plenty of time to still visit the prince of Wales Museum and Art museum which are very close to Gateway to India while you are there.
