- Warm Welcome at the Gateway of India
The iconic Gateway of India is the prime centre of cultural festivities of Mumbai.

Located opposite to the grand Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Hotel, you can enjoy a strategic view of the entire city on its face with your back to the vast ocean. If you do not fret the waters as much as your cat, you may even venture into boating by the shores of the city at minimal prices.

If you plan a full-day weekend trip in the city, then Elephanta Caves provide you the most intelligible experience.
