Full description
Get to know Mumbai on a half-day sightseeing tour by air-conditioned vehicle, starting with a pick-up from your hotel (or cruise ship port subject to a small supplement). Drive to Malabar Hill to see Mumbai’s up-market residential district and enjoy spectacular views of the city surrounds. As you climb, look at the Jain temple dedicated to Adinath, the 1st Jain tirthankara (one who helps achieve enlightenment). Drive past the Hanging Gardens and Kamala Nehru Park, before visiting Mani Bhavan, the former residence of Mahatma Gandhi. The pretty, 2 floor building was where the Quit India Movement was conceptualized in the year 1942, and now houses a reference library of over 2,000 books, as well as a photo exhibition and diorama depicting the Mahatma's life. Next, go to the Dhobi Ghat to see the world largest outdoor laundry. Watch the traditional laundrymen at work, pounding dirty clothes in vast rows of concrete wash pens, each fitted with its own flogging stone. En route back to your hotel, drive past the UNESCO designated Victoria Terminus railway station, and continue to the fort area to Gateway of India monument, built to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary.

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.
