Description

Across the bay from Mumbai lies Elephanta Island, where you can explore a labyrinth of caves, temples, and shrines on a half-day tour with your own private guide. Enjoy a short cruise to the enthralling site as you discover some of the most impressive temples and shrines in the whole of India.

Board your boat at the impressive Gateway of India, the stone archway overlooking the Arabian Sea. Admire the city and surrounding region from a fresh angle as you glide across the water.

As you walk into the heart of the island, the great temples reveal themselves. Most impressive of all is the one dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. Wander through the maze of courtyards and shrines and marvel at the centerpiece, a giant bust dedicated to the famous deity.

Continue walking across the site with your knowledgeable guide, and listen to the informative cultural and historical context they provide. See caves that have been hewn from the basalt rock, with enchanting Buddhist architecture and the remains of curious artwork on the walls.

Annand was a great tour guide. It was clear after overhearing some of the others around that he knew his facts far better. Very impressed with the whole service - would recommend to anyone.

Picked up early at hotel. Great driver. Tommy was my guide. Very knowledgeable, answered questions, ensured I got what I needed. I've done countless tours across this globe and this had to be in my top 3. Cannot recommend this tour and especially Tommy enough.
