“What's the big deal??”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

So I wasn't sure why this is a main attraction. It didn't do anything for me. Had to go through metal detectors that were unplugged. Doesn't make sense.

“Gateway of India a must visit for any tourist.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Worth travelling to see the gateway of India and Taj hotel, I got a great photo of the two next to each other from the ferry ride around the shore. Very busy though and you get a lot of hassle from sellers of everything.

“Excellent colonial and modern structures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

The architecture and statuary are impressive, but particularly enjoyed noticing all the unusual and different people passing by.

“Highly Over rated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

This place is highly over rated. This was my 3rd visit to Mumbai and my 2nd visit to Gateway. You will have limited access to this area. The govt blocks this areas for unknown reasons. The ocean is not that great from here. The water looks dirty.
