Mumbai Elephanta Caves Private Half-Day Tour including Guide

74 reviews
Located on an island off the coast of Mumbai, the Elephanta Caves are rock-cut temples, some dating back to the second century BC. Learn about the legendary Buddhist and Hindu UNESCO-World Heritage Site—known as the “City of Caves”—during this guided tour, which covers the main temples dedicated to Shiva as well as smaller, off-the-beaten-track shrines. And because it’s a private tour, enjoy plenty of personal attention. The ferry and admission to the caves are at own expense and there is an option to include a family lunch.
US$ 40.50 per adult

I have visited this museum many times with different friends. It's a beautiful historical building that used to be the the Vicotoria and Albert Museum and now has its name changed. It showcases many handicrafts from India that show different kind of craftsmanship. They do free tours over the weekends.

The Bhau Daji Lad Museum is a gem of a place with fascinating exhibits on arts, crafts, and industry (the ground floor), as well as on the history of Mumbai (upstairs). Restored in the past ten years to its original glory, the beautiful building itself is worth the visit. There was a lovely, intelligent, highly informative, and friendly young guide offering a free tour. You could seeping half an hour here, or you could spend four hours studying the profusion oof beautiful objects. Hint: since this museum is not located in the heart of the city, you should arrange (that is, bargain like crazy), to hire a cab, ask the driver to wait for you, and then drive you back. We were staying in Colaba and arranged hits for 700 rupees but gave him 900 for his good driving and service.

Got accused of not having a ticket to be there while I was mid way around the museum which was odd because you need one to get through, other wise I wasnt fussed.
