Your tour begins with a pick up from your hotel, where you'll meet your guide who will bring you to Kanheri Caves. These amazing rock-cut monuments, found in Sanjay Gandhi National Park, have stood since 1st century BCE, a testament to the long history of civilization in India. Your tour guide will bring you through its hallways and corridors so you can see the Buddha sculptures painstakingly carved into them by devotees from ancient times. Following this, your guide will take you to visit to a pair of iconic pieces of architecture in Mumbai: the Gateway of India, built for King George V and Queen Mary in 1911, and the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, a 560-room wonder with ornate exteriors. Your next stop, the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus station, a known UNESCO World Heritage Site, will give you a glimpse back to the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria, when it was first built, with its Indian-Gothic architecture. No visit to India would be complete without shopping for some spices, and in the colorful alleys of Crawford Market, you'll be able to find nearly all of them. An even more fascinating site awaits you as you head to the Dhobi Ghat, a massive open air laundry filled with hundreds of lined up wash slabs. Following this, you'll be able to take a look at Mahatma Gandhi's residence and learn about the life of this historical figure. After a break for lunch (at your own expense), the tour takes you to Malabar Hill, a very upper crust neighborhood in Mumbai where many prominent government and social figures reside in opulent residences. A glimpse of the Banganga Water Tank (and ancient tank deeply rooted in local mythology and history), and you're headed to Kamala Nehru park, named after the historic female freedom fighter, a hero in India. Your last destination is a walk at Marine Drive's “Queen's Necklace” area, where you'll be able to capture a gorgeous panorama of the city skyline right before you head back to your hotel.
