It was ok and that's it really, the gate was beautiful but the hassle you got from blokes taking your picture or buying items just didn't give you time to admire anything. O and if you get a taxi make sure you have short change so equivalent to 50p because the taxi driver will con you and get your hotel... More

The sheer site of being at Gateway is refreshing. You can have broad view of the Arabian sea. Feel the breeze and freshness, observe the monument

The structure is alebit small, but the cultural heritage; the arabian sea backdrop; the adjoining garden with statues of great men and the TajMahal Hotel(Old and New) is unique collection protraying India's history and culture. The crowd there distinctly portrays the elite to the lower middleclass people. The destination attracts the old, the young and the kids of the current... More

The Gateway of India is an amazing site to visit on any trip to India. The architecture and other sights from here takes ones breath away. One can also see the famous Taj Mahal Hotel from here.

Good place to visit. Preferably evening visit around 4-4:30pm would be good as sun would be on to set and travelers would not feel the heat. Professional picture if only in group otherwise nowadays mostly everybody has camera mobile. Carry your own water bottle, if mineral water then aquafina or kinley would be better. Boat ride is available. Don't eat... More

It was quite a pleasant view from the distance. The colour changes had such good kmpression on the building and provided good photo opportunities. I enjoyed it while it lasted. Would have been nice to have some structured tourist engagement (I.e. more education and enlightenment about the site). Staring in awe and taking pictures becomes a bit boring after a... More
