I visited the Gateway of India on our way to Elephanta Island. It was beautiful. Had a European feel to it also. Super busy with locals and tourists, as it's the place to visit. Interesting history behind it! A must see if going to Bombay

This place procvides you an option to hang around wioth your friends/ family/ colleges etc etc. Anyone can be a good company for visiting this place. The ferry provides you with an option to visit oil shore. Also the view of The Taj is worth a visit. Don't forget to get photographed from different angles.
