I am not sure what was I expecting but the caves were really a pleasant surprise to me. The boat ride till the island was okayish n I wouldn't recommend it to solo female travellers. By once you reach there, it really is very safe and breathtaking. Since the archaeological guide works only until 2pm we hired a local guy as a guide. The info he gave was quite misleading so I strongly recommend hiring genuine guide or reading up in advance. But a must see if you are visiting Mumbai.I liked it the best in Mumbai.
Also if you are travelling during monsoon, the launches might not be in service. Check before you make plans.
