Delhi may be the capital city, but it's Mumbai that encapsulates all the dynamic, chaotic parts that make up modern India. This is where you'll find everything from succulent street food to haute cuisine, bargain-basement bazaars to the finest haute couture, humbling poverty to staggering wealth, sacred temples to hedonist nightclubs. Mumbai is India—vibrant, hectic, frustrating, enervating, and exhilarating, warts and all. Mumbai is a city of extremes, where slum-dwelling strivers making dollars a day serve Bollywood stars and industrial billionaires. View more

It's a 24-hour city stocked with some of the best late-night street food in the world, as well as fine-dining restaurants of renowned chefs. It's a cosmopolitan city of people from all over India that's nonetheless home to strident parochialism. It's a city of dreams for millions of Indians that, at the same time, affords so few any measure of comfort. And it's a beautiful city of silver towers when viewed by twilight from the new Bandra-Worli Sea Link bridge over the Arabian Sea that connects the Western suburbs to the city, but which quickly descends into a maze of winding—often dirty—streets and alleys when viewed up close. Sensory overload is the name of the game on the island formerly known as Bombay (and yes, many locals still call it by its previous moniker). The first thing that hits you when you arrive at the airport is the smell—spicy, fishy, and, to be honest, often not altogether pleasant. Next comes a crazed cab ride through the seemingly lawless streets (should your driver run a red light or, just as likely, drive on the wrong side of the road, remain calm). Then a traffic jam in the midst of a veritable symphony of honking, in which barefoot children, often holding infants, and tragically disfigured men and women knock at your window, begging for change. Persevere through, though; embrace and try to understand the natural hazards of the Third World, and you'll find yourself in the middle of a vibrant, often beautiful city. There's plenty to see in Mumbai, but it's not generally in the form of stationary monuments like those in London, Paris, or Delhi. The art of experiencing Mumbai lies in eating, shopping, and wandering through the strikingly different neighborhoods and the various markets. Think of Mumbai as a 50-km (30-mile) -long open-air bazaar. Colaba, headed by Gateway of India, is the tourist district and main drag for visitors, and from the Gateway of India to Colaba Market, along the main road, is a walkable stretch of hotels, pubs, restaurants, and interesting shops. Churchgate and Nariman Point are the business and hotel centers, and major bank and airline headquarters are clustered in skyscrapers on Nariman Point. The district referred to as Fort—which includes Mumbai's hub, Flora Fountain—is filled with narrow, bustling streets lined with small shops and office buildings, as well as colleges and other educational facilities. Another upscale residential neighborhood, Malabar Hill, north of Churchgate on Marine Drive, is leafy and breezy, with fine, old stone mansions housing wealthy industrialists and government ministers. Shopping and people-watching are most colorfully combined in Mumbai's chaotic bazaar areas, such as Chor Bazaar, Zaveri (jewelry) Bazaar, and Crawford Market (aka Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Market). Many of the city's newest and trendiest shops and restaurants are now out in the suburbs—where more and more people have been moving due to soaring real-estate prices and a lack of space—but South Mumbai still retains some of the very best. Some travelers opt to stay in the suburbs, either in Bandra, at the end of the new Bandra-Worli Sea Link, or in Juhu, a popular coastal suburb between Mumbai and the airports (about 20 km [12 miles] north of the city center). Juhu's beaches aren't clean enough for swimming, and the place can be scruffy, but staying out here is a good way to observe everyday Indian life beyond the shadow of Mumbai's skyline. Sunday nights bring families down to the beach for an old-fashioned carnival, complete with small, hand-powered Ferris wheels, and lantern-lit snack stalls hawking sugarcane.

A Jaunt with Mumbai's Superheroes - Dabbawalas


Brace yourself for an interesting day outing - an experience you won't be able to duplicate anywhere else! Spend your day with Mumbai's superheroes - the Dabbawalas, members of the Mumbai Tiffin Box Suppliers Association. Every day 5,000 of them deliver fresh, home-cooked food from 200,000 suburban kitchens to offices in the downtown area. Each lunch is prepared by a loving wife or mother, and packed into a set of stackable aluminium boxes. The meals are carried to their hungry recipients dangling from shoulder-poles and bicycle handlebars, and stacked on decorated handcarts. Tins are rarely, if ever, lost, and always find their way home again to be washed up for the next day's lunch.


You will shadow one of these superheroes today. Pick up a tiffin from a local home for delivery; help sort tiffins; walk to a railway station and brave a local train where you get the chance to interact with some other members of the association; sort again and pick and deliver freshly-cooked home food along with some smiles.


After a day's hard work and having learnt tricks of the trade, a tiffin lunch awaits you at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel!


Please note: This tour requires a moderate amount of walking for approximately 1.12 miles (1.8 kilometers) over paved surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach, 15 steps at the train station and 6 steps at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and those who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing and sunscreen, glasses and a hat are recommended. It is also recommended to carry a bottle of water at all times due to the heat. Kindly note: along with the Dabba-wala guests will travel in the luggage compartment of the local train. There are just a few seats in each compartment and therefore guests will have to stand through the approximately 15-20 minutes journey. The tour is led a local expert and not a licensed guide.

An Enchanted Evening in Mumbai

Experience the spectacular city of Mumbai at night during this panoramic, half-day sightseeing excursion with dinner.


Gateway of India & Chowpatty Beach

Depart the pier for a scenic, approximately 75-minute sightseeing drive through Mumbai. Along the way, pass by a wide array of beautifully-lit monuments. See the city's most famous landmark, the Gateway of India, an Indo-Saracenic archway built in 1911 to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary. Continue along Mumbai's seaside promenade, Marine Drive, an eight-lane highway with a wide pavement. Its graceful curve sweeps from the skyscrapers at Nariman Point to the foot of Malabar Hill. As the sun sets and the city is illuminated, it becomes a glittering necklace of a million lights. At the northern end of the drive is Chowpatty Beach, a Mumbai institution that comes to life at night.


Victoria Terminus

Next, pass by the Victoria Terminus, a railway station built during Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee year and inspired by St. Pancras Station in London. It is an extraordinary conglomeration of domes, spires, Corinthian columns and minarets. The first train in India departed from this station in April 1853; today, a half-million commuters use the station every day.


Taj Mahal Palace Hotel & Dinner

Following your sightseeing drive, proceed for a traditional Indian dinner at Masala Kraft, the Indian speciality restaurant inside the iconic Taj Mahal Palace Hotel. Your meal is created with freshly-ground spices and culinary innovations blended with traditional cooking and preparation methods. After dinner, re-board your coach and commence the short drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a minimal amount of walking, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and six steps at the Taj Mahal Hotel. This tour is suitable for guests with limited mobility, but is not wheelchair accessible.

Please dress conservatively when going ashore. As a rule, women should not wear anything remotely revealing (miniskirts, shorts, capris, beachwear, and sleeveless or low-cut tops), and men should always wear a shirt and trousers in public. Coaches and guides are the best-available in the area, but may not be up to the standards of those found on other excursions. Space on this tour is very limited; we suggest you book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Art With A Difference

Explore two diverse and interesting perspectives of art in Mumbai during this picturesque, half-day World Cruise Collection excursion.


Mumbai, Karfule Petrol Filling Station, Art Deco History

Newly-designed especially for our valued World Cruise guests, your World Cruise Collection tour begins with a short drive to the Karfule Petrol Filling Station. Upon arrival, your architect/guide introduces you to the rich, Art Deco history of Mumbai, reputed for having the second-highest number of Art Deco buildings after Miami, Florida. This important architectural style began in the mid-1930s, taken up by Indians who were attaining economic parity with the British. First-generation Indian architects were drawn to its futuristic and modern look. The availability of new building technologies and materials contributed to an environment for Art Deco to flourish.


Guided Walking Tour, Scenic Drive, Art Deco Buildings, Oval Maidan, Marine Drive

A guided walking tour offers a deeper insight into Mumbai's Art Deco movement whilst viewing some fine examples and iconic buildings, from the Oval Maidan to Marine Drive. From the residential structures, offices and hospitals to the single-screen movie theatres and religious spaces, Art Deco is omnipresent in this city, with over 200 buildings. Following your tour, re-board your coach and head for a photo stop at the Byramjee Wadia Clock Tower. Leaving the clock tower, continue on to the Empress Court, then take a guided stroll around the Oval Maidan and Marine Drive, viewing Art Deco buildings en route. Afterward, re-board your coach and drive past some classic Art Deco gems.


Visit to the Home of Hema Shroff, Textile Chat with Tea, Shopping, Shawls, Scarves

Next, explore a different perspective of art in Mumbai during a visit to the home of Hema Shroff, a self-taught handicrafts artist. Upon arrival, Hema takes you through the history of textiles in India whilst recounting her journey and love of textiles over a cup of tea. You can even purchase the beautiful examples of shawls and scarves from her collection. Following your visit, your World Cruise Collection tour concludes with an approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This World Cruise Collection tour involves an extensive amount of walking for approximately 1.2 miles (about 1.9 kilometres), at times over uneven surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and at the sites visited. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes, and bring sun protection and local currency for purchases from the ship. The coaches utilised are the best-available in the area, but may not be up to the standards of those found on other excursions. Photography/videography is prohibited at the residence of Hema Shroff; guests should respect the privacy of their host. The tour sequence may vary. Space on this tour is extremely limited; we suggest you book well in advance to avoid disappointment.

Marvels of Mumbai

Experience the highlights of Mumbai during a scenic, half-day orientation tour of this fascinating city.


Gateway of India and Prince of Wales Museum

Depart the pier for the brief drive to the Gateway of India. The city's most famous landmark, this Indo-Saracenic archway was built in 1911 to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary.


After a photo stop here, visit the Prince of Wales Museum, which is crowned by a white Mughal-style dome. Upon arrival, view jade work, weapons from the Mughal Empire, clay and terracotta figures from the 3rd century B.C., Greek-influenced 4th- and 5th-century heads and figures, superb Indian paintings, illustrated manuscripts, and exquisite miniatures.


Marine Drive and Mani Bhavan

At the northern end is the lively Chowpatty Beach, a Mumbai institution. From here, a visit is made to Mani Bhavan, Gandhi's Bombay base between 1917 and 1934. Now a permanent museum and memorial to the Mahatma, Mani Bhavan contains a research library of more than 20,000 volumes, along with personal artefacts, photos and letters. Gandhi's sitting room/bedroom is preserved behind glass.


Dhobi Ghat and Victoria Terminus

Your tour continues with a photo stop at Dhobi Ghat, an impressive operation where tons of clothing from all over Mumbai are laundered, pressed and bundled before being returned to their owners. During the 40-minute drive back to the pier, pass by the Victoria Terminus, a remarkable railway station built during the year of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. Inspired by St. Pancras Station in London, the Victoria Terminus features impressive domes, spires, Corinthian columns and minarets, and serves a half-million commuters daily.


Please note: This tour requires a moderate amount of walking for approximately 0.8 miles (about 1.29 kilometres) over paved surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach, 50 steps at the Prince of Wales Museum (only the first floor is accessible by elevator) and 35 steps at Mani Bhawan. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing and sunscreen, glasses and hat. Bring local currency for camera fees (50 INR for mobile phones and tablets, 100 INR for cameras, 5000 INR for video at the time of printing) and books about Mahatma Gandhi at Mani Bhavan. At some sites, depending on traffic and parking conditions, it may be necessary to cross busy streets. Sites may also be crowded and guests need to exercise normal caution.

See the highlights of Mumbai from the comfort of your coach during this 2.5 hour panoramic sightseeing tour of this bustling city.


Gateway of India and Marine Drive

Depart the pier for a panoramic sightseeing tour of Mumbai City. Begin with a drive past the Gateway of India. The city's most famous landmark, this Indo-Saracenic archway was built in 1911 to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary. From here, proceed along Marine Drive, Mumbai's seaside promenade. Its graceful curve sweeps from the skyscrapers at Nariman Point to the foot of Malabar Hill, Mumbai's ritziest neighbourhood.


Malabar Hill, Jain Temple & Victoria Terminus

Since the 18th century, Malabar Hill's forested slopes, fresh sea breeze and panoramic views have attracted wealthy denizens who reside here in mansions, bungalows and luxury high-rise apartment blocks. Also on the hill is the Jain Temple, built of marble and dedicated to Adinath, the first of the twenty-four Jain prophets, or thirthankars.


Continuing on, pass by the Victoria Terminus, a remarkable railway station built during the year of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. Inspired by St. Pancras Station in London, the Victoria Terminus features impressive domes, spires, Corinthian columns and minarets, and serves a half-million commuters daily.


The Taj Mahal Palace & Tower Hotel

Awaken to a burst of colour, spiritual calm and the splendid sights of Mumbai during this half-day, early-morning sightseeing excursion.


Flower Market

Depart the pier for the early-morning drive to a local flower market, whilst the roads of Mumbai are peaceful and quiet. Upon arrival, see a cavalcade of fresh, colourful flowers, and hear the cacophony of sellers and buyers. This temporary market comes alive as early as 4 a.m., and disappears by 9 a.m. Flowers are everywhere; orange and red marigolds heaped on tarpaulins and sold by weight, white champa in tiny baskets and sold by the number, and delicately-wrapped pink lotuses in broad leaves to be offered to the gods. During your visit, pick a garland to be offered by you at the next stop, one of the ISKCON temples or the Hara Rama Hare Krishna Temple.


ISKCON or Hara Rama Krisna Temple

Dedicated to Lord Krishna, the world-renowned ISKCON temples are dedicated to Lord Krishna, and represent a tribute to Srila Parabhupada's perseverance to spread the Krishna consciousness. ISKCON is comprised of more than 400 temples worldwide, 40 rural communities and over 100 vegetarian restaurants. It also conducts special projects throughout the world, such as 'Food for Life', the only free vegetarian relief program in the world. After attending an early-morning prayer ceremony, re-board your coach and continue on to the Sassoon Docks.


Sassoon Docks, Fish Market, Taj Mahal Palace Hotel and Breakfast

The Sassoon Docks are among the oldest docks in Mumbai, and another local sight best-seen during the early hours of the day. Built on reclaimed land by David Sassoon and completed in 1905, the docks now play host to local fishing fleets, along with one of Mumbai's largest and most famous fish markets. Observe a sea of people, heaps of fish and shellfish, local fishermen bringing in their catches, and the local fisherwomen vying to sell and auction them. Leaving the Sassoon Docks, re-board your coach and proceed for breakfast at the iconic Taj Mahal Palace Hotel. After breakfast, re-board your coach and commence the short drive back to the pier.

Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 0.5 miles (about 0.8 kilometres), at times over uneven and slippery surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach, six steps at the Taj Mahal Hotel and 20 steps at the ISCKON Temple. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. Please dress conservatively when going ashore. Proper attire is required to enter the temples; shorts and bare shoulders are not permitted. As a rule, women should not wear anything remotely revealing (miniskirts, shorts, capris, beachwear, and sleeveless or low-cut tops), and men should always wear a shirt and trousers in public. Shoes must be removed prior to entering the temples. Wear a thick pair of socks, as the pavement may be hot. Roads at the flower market are muddy and dirty; guests should wear shoes accordingly. Guests must be at least 12 years old to participate on this tour. Coaches and guides are the best-available in the area, but may not be up to the standards of those found on other excursions. Flash photography is prohibited inside the temples. Space on this tour is very limited; we suggest you book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Mumbai's Temples

Explore the Hindu religion and its influences in depth during this scenic and informative, half-day tour of the temples of Mumbai.


Flower Market

Depart the pier for a visit to a bustling local flower market. Upon arrival, experience an abundance of colourful flowers and the cacophony of sellers and buyers. This temporary market comes alive as early as 4 a.m. and disappears by 9 a.m. Orange and red marigolds, white champa and pink lotuses are all sold here. During your visit, pick a garland of your own to be offered to the gods at the Shri Siddhivinayak Temple.


Shri Siddhivinayak Temple

Next, re-board your coach and proceed for a visit to the historic Shri Siddhivinayak Temple, which is dedicated to Lord Ganesh, the elephant-headed god. Inside is a figure of Ganesh that is visible from any point within the temple. One of Hinduism's most popular gods, Ganesh is revered as the remover of obstacles, and his name is invoked before every undertaking. The image of Ganesh is often placed above gateways, and in shops and houses.


Isckon Temple

Your tour concludes with a visit to the Hare Rama Hare Krishna Temple, an ISKCON temple. Dedicated to Lord Krishna, these temples are a tribute to Srila Parabhupada's perseverance to spread the Krishna consciousness. ISKCON comprises more than 400 temples worldwide, 40 rural communities and over 100 vegetarian restaurants. It also conducts special projects throughout the world, including 'Food for Life', the only free vegetarian relief programme in the world.


Following your visit, re-board your coach for the approximate 30-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour requires a moderate amount of walking for approximately 0.8 miles (approximately 1.3 kilometres) over mostly paved surfaces with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach, 20 steps at the ISCKON Temple and 3 steps at the Shri Siddhivinayak Temple. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Sun protection, sunglasses and a hat recommended. Proper attire is required to visit the sacred sites; shorts and short skirts are not permitted, and women must cover their shoulders. Shoes must be removed prior to entering the temples.

Shades of Mumbai

Experience the scenic beauty and landmarks of Mumbai in a unique new way during a full-day, excursion through this bustling city.


Train Ride & Dhobi Ghat

Depart the pier for the brief drive to Church Gate Station, then board a local train for the ride to Mahalakshmi Station. Upon arrival, walk to the local laundry, Dhobi Ghat, an impressive operation where tons of clothing from all over Mumbai are laundered, pressed and bundled before being returned to their owners. After a photo stop at Dhobi Ghat, drive past the Haji Ali Shrine and the racecourse en route to Khotachiwadi.


Khotachiwadi

Situated in the heart of the city, this urban village features an eclectic blend of new homes and 18th-century Portuguese houses. During your guided walking tour, a visit is made to an old restored home belonging to a local resident. Inside, view a collection of antiques and exemplary examples of traditional teak furniture. From here, re-board your coach and drive to the Crawford Market.


Crawford Market & The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel

A blend of Flemish and Norman architecture, the market has a bas-relief above its main entrance and a frieze designed by Lockyard Kipling, father of the famous Rudyard Kipling; the Kipling's' cottage still stands in the market. Crawford Market looks like something out of Victorian London, with its sweet smell of hay, mountains of fresh fruits and vegetables, and a 50-foot-high (15-metre-high) sky-lit awning. Leaving the market, proceed for a buffet lunch at the historic Taj Mahal Palace Hotel.


Mani Bhavan

After lunch, a visit is made to Mani Bhavan, Gandhi's Bombay base between 1917 and 1934. It is now a permanent museum and memorial to the Mahatma. The walls are covered with photos of historic events and noteworthy people and there are a number of personal artefacts - including a letter to Hitler asking him not to go to war, and correspondence with Roosevelt, Tolstoy, and Einstein. Gandhi's sitting room/bedroom is preserved behind glass.


Following your visit, re-board the coach for the brief drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour requires an extensive amount of walking for approximately 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometres) over mostly paved surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach, 4 steps at Church Gate Station, 30 steps at Mahalakshmi Station, 6 steps at The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel and 35 steps at Mani Bhawan. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing, walking shoes, sun protection, sunglasses and a hat are recommended. Souvenir shops accept cash in US dollars, Pounds, Euros and local currency and some shops accept credit cards. Vehicles used are the best available in the city, they will not be of the same standard as vehicles found in Western countries. Guests will be travelling in the first-class compartment of the local train, which is very basic (hygiene standards are not the same as in Western countries), and pesky hawkers and beggars may be present at the stations. At some sites, depending on traffic and parking conditions, it may be necessary to cross busy streets. Sites may also be crowded and guests need to exercise caution. Space on this tour is very limited; we suggest you book in advance to avoid disappointment. Photography is prohibited at the local railway stations.

Leaving Matharpacady, proceed for lunch at Trishna, a Mumbai institution and local seafood restaurant serving up the fresh catch-of-the-day. After lunch, re-board your coach and head to Colonial Mumbai, which is more popular with tourists and features UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Whilst driving and strolling through this precinct, learn about the contribution of the British to the development of the city and its rich architectural heritage of Gothic, Victorian, Art Deco, Indo-Saracenic and contemporary-style buildings. Following your visit, your World Cruise Collection tour concludes with a short drive back to the pier.


Please note: This World Cruise Collection tour involves an extensive amount of walking for approximately 2.4 miles (about 3.8 kilometres), at times over uneven surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and 20 steps at Matharpacady. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes, and bring sun protection and local currency for purchases from the ship. Proper attire is required to enter religious sites; shorts and bare shoulders are not permitted.

Space on this tour is extremely limited; we suggest you book well in advance to avoid disappointment.

The Caves of Elephanta

Explore the ancient beauty and art of India during this scenic, half-day tour to the Caves of Elephanta.

Elephanta Island

Over 1,000 years ago, Hindu craftsmen excavated caves in the volcanic rock high up on the slope, depicting their beliefs in elegant, massive carvings. The Elephanta Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, was probably created during the 8th century A.D., though the caves may have had earlier Buddhist origins. From the landing area, walk up the long stairway to the top of the hill. In front of the main cave is a veranda with a pillar carved in one of the various manifestations of Shiva at each end.


Elephanta Caves

Upon entering the cave, see magnificent sculptures featuring various manifestations of Shiva. Included are Shiva as Nataraj, Lord of the Cosmic Dance, a powerful bust of Trimurti, the three-faced Shiva, Shiva bringing the Ganges River to earth, Shiva crushing the demon Andhaka, and Shiva with his consort, Parvati. Following your visit, walk back down to the landing area and embark your boat for the ride back to the Gateway of India.


Your tour concludes with a brief transfer back to the pier.


Please note: This tour requires an extensive amount of walking for approximately 1.2 miles (about 1.9 kilometres), with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and 125 steps at Elephanta Island. This tour is not suitable for guests with claustrophobia, guests with limited mobility and those who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, non-slip walking shoes, and bring sun protection from the ship. Expect crowds and lines at the sites visited; the caves are particularly crowded on Sundays. Videography is prohibited inside the caves, and a current charge of INR 25 is required for videography outside the caves. Sedan chairs are available for guests to go up to the entrance of the caves at their own expense. There is no scheduled shopping stop; guests can shop from the stalls along the walking route at the caves. Guests should carry some local currency for the camera fee, sedan chairs, etc. Guests should be advised of pesky hawkers around the boat landing area.
