This was a really fun dual tour! It helped that the same company handled both tours because the Elephanta Caves are quite far from the Bollywood studio, with traffic. If we had had two separate tours, we would have been very late for the Bollywood tour coming from the Elephanta caves, but because it was the same company they were able to communicate every step of the way and make sure we didn't miss a thing! They also handled the entry to the Gateway of India & ferry transportation and handled the tour guides, drivers, and English-speaking escorts. The guide for the Elephanta Caves was local to the island and knowledgeable. Because our Bollywood tour was in the afternoon it didn't include the dance show, so if that's important to you check to make sure you are booking the right tour. However, we visited a live set and standing sets and had our own time in a recording studio. I recommend doing the Bollywood tour in a group with friends so you can feel comfortable making dramatic scenes.
This was a great private tour around Mumbai. Mystical Mumbai was able to accommodate us with less than 12 hours' notice (please don't do this to them haha but it was really awesome they were able to get us a tour last-minute). We had an awesome driver Manoj and a wonderful tour guide Raj. He spoke the best English of anywhere I spoke to in India which made communication very easy. There were opportunities to adjust the tour to see more or less of what we were interested in and the team went above and beyond. Raj is an upbeat and personable guide and even invited us to meet his family at the end of the tour which was an amazing experience! I definitely recommend this tour.
This was our first time in Mumbai and the tour was absolutely excellent. Our guide was very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the history of Mumbai, it’s current development and the different religions there. Alam went out of his way to make sure we were able to experience the most authentic side of Mumbai and did an amazing job even though coronavirus restrictions are still in place. We chose to have the lunch option and the food was fantastic. The car we travelled in was well air conditioned and the social distancing elements were excellent. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Thank you so much.
Elephanta island is absolutely worth a visit! The local guide Nitin pointed out the Hindu background perfectly and helped me to get the best pictures. The afternoon was fantastic with the visit of Siraf Jahangir studio with local guide Naren and expert on Bollywood movies who knows all the good sets and I was lucky to watch the filming of a dancing show.
The tour includes a number of sites, most of which I didn’t see because I had travel sickness. One thing that I did see was Gandhi’s home, and this was a most interesting and relevant stop. My tour guide, Pankaja, was very knowledgeable. My driver was also good despite heavy traffic and thick smog.
