A walking tour is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the culture, architecture and heritage of the historic city of Mumbai.
Travel by coach to the Fort area, passing many architecturally impressive buildings, including the General Post Office, Victoria Terminus, the Municipal Corporation Building, St Xavier's College and St Thomas' Cathedral. Step inside St Thomas' -- Mumbai's first Anglican church -- before setting out on foot with your guide. As you stroll through parts of the Heritage Precinct, your guide offers stories and facts about this bustling city.
See and learn about the many buildings and monuments that contribute to the special history of Mumbai -- the ornate Flora Fountain, and the Gothic-style Mumbai University and High Court buildings. View the unusual façades of the David Sasson Library, Jehangir Art Gallery and the Prince of Wales Museum, with its carved features and elaborate brackets. Absorb the local culture around you -- crazy traffic, busy sidewalks, and spicy aromas wafting enticingly from food stalls. Watch the locals rushing about their daily activities and the ladies wearing their colorful clothing.
At the waterfront, you'll see the imposing Gateway of India. This famous monument, erected to commemorate the visit of King George V, combines both Hindu and Muslim architecture. You'll have time to take photos before boarding the coach for the ride back to the ship.
