What People Are Saying About Mumbai

The staff was very professional and polite

Very good experience The meeting point before departure for the trip should be better defined.
Elephanta Caves Guided Tour from Mumbai Reviewed by Hasan, 01/03/2016

A piece of the human puzzle on a lush, remote island; beautiful, rare!

I was picked up, escorted & dropped off at my hotel by Mr. Naren, who spoke English, was kind, knowledgeable & courteous. The tour includes passenger ferry to & from the island (about 1 hr each way), & gave me a great view of the geographic area, trade activity & energy sectors in the region. The "ferries" are very basic & those prone to motion sickness may reconsider. For Westerners, leave expectations on safety, cleanliness and comfort behind! My guide Mr. Nitin met us at Elephanta Island. He knew the area well, spoke fluent English, was mindful of my needs & took many pictures for me. The island is tropical; paths were slippery so good treads are a must. The climb to the caves is gradual but may be strenuous for some. Bring Rupees for cave entry & savvy merchants - safest to deal in Rupees! The caves & history are mind blowing - a testament to the tenacity & skill of past generations, & humbling reminder of our human origins. I was well looked after; truly a unique experience!
Elephanta Caves Guided Tour from Mumbai Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 08/10/2015

Was highly interesting and informative - guide was island local.

I had an excellent day from the boat ride to the island, the trek up the hill to see the caves and finally a light and delicious meal at the end of the stairways on the way back. The sun was setting over Mumbai as I travelled back to the Gateway of India by boat which made a lovely ending. The guide was personable and very knowledgeable about the history of the island, the caves, and the local people and village. He was a resident of the island. The tour company was very attentive to my needs for the day. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to understand India's history and religions. Warning: the walk up the hill is very strenuous.

Once away from the big city to an island...

The trip took 70 min. and the return trip 50 min. Our guide himself lives on the Elephanta Island and was able to give us lots of information about these Caves. This tour can be done also alone; ferries depart every half-hour; the Caves are easy to find on the island.

Very good guide and driver. Extra charges were a ripoff.

Our guide was excellent and she knew an awful lot about Mumbai. The first guide we've ever had who refused a tip at the end! The operator was of a different calibre. He insisted we pay 2 x $20 extra for the car's entrance onto the dock area, even though they didn't come to the dock but made us walk the long, hot stretch to where the car was outside the gates. He was annoyed when we questioned maybe you should change the false information in the advert. We did have a very good and full day of sightseeing though.
