A half-day city tour


Bandra . . . . probably the most sought after western suburb, also the suburb by the sea and is also Mumbai's equivalent of south Mumbai in the north. This quaint suburb also houses the highest Catholic population in Mumbai, thus the reason for the largest number of Roman Catholic churches, anywhere in the world are found in Bandra. The suburb was once occupied by the Portuguese. A fusion of old and contemporary Mumbai, this atmospheric tour combines some of the city's most important landmarks. Also discover Mumbai through the stories of some of her defining residents - her patron Goddess, an Uzbek saint, a warrior king and a philanthropist who built a majestic hotel just to teach the British a lesson! But, first, a peek into the world's biggest movie-making factory - Bollywood. Lights, camera… action!

Itinerary

Tour starts in Bandra (aka Queen of the Suburbs), also home to a large number of film stars. Visit a quaint fishing village nestled away from the hustle and bustle of Mumbai.
Proceed towards Lilavati Hospital, where film stars check in when unwell, proceed along the Bandra-Worli Sealink, and exit at Shiv Sagar Estate.
Take a look at the Haji Ali Dargah (shrine of a Sufi seer/saint) and proceed to Mahalakshmi temple. Next, visit the world's largest outdoor laundromat, Dhobi Ghat.
Drive down Pedder Road and learn about one of the world's richest people, Mukesh Ambani.
drive past Mumbaidevi temple, a shrine to the goddess that gave Mumbai its name
Take a look at the magnificent Chhatrpati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, a railway terminus built by the British. It was also the venue of the 26/7 terror attack in 2008.
Tour ends at Gateway of India and, next door, at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, a symbol of Indian nationalism.
