Its stunning construction portrays both Muslim and Hindu styles of architecture. You will take in the Royal Taj Hotel, which is located opposite the Gateway of India. This place is indeed a treasure trove of invaluable memories of the heritage of Mumbai and of the Taj Towers, which are an amazing architectural structure worth seeing. Listed next on your trip is the exclusive Prince of Wales Museum,(closed on Monday). Built between 1904 and 1914, this museum was used as a hospital during the First World War.

What people are saying about Mumbai

Get Your Guide didn’t let us down again! Fab tour, fab guide, fab driver. We laughed all day, and saw everything and more that we wanted to see. Anthony our guide, along with a wicked sense of humour, told us facts that were not always run of the mill or in the guide books. Mukesh our driver was so polite, patient and a great traffic navigator. Best tour of our 3 week trip across India.

Our guide Suraj was a great guy with a lot of local knowledge and sense for humor. The tour covered 8 different and interesting places. Sunday seemed to be an excellent day for doing this kind of trip as the traffic is rather remote. Overall great trip and great experience! Highly recommended!

Great guide and the translator was great too! Everything tuned in advance and performed great tour. Sufficient time to visit had. Our target wishes were dealt with easily. Very harmonious day.

Without our guide and our patient driver it would have been impossible to explore this beautiful city. Impeccable service. A highly recommended experience

This was a very nice tour. The guide and driver were helpful and knowledgable.
