“a very special place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

This is a great location to visit, with access to boat trips across to Elephant Island. Security has much improved in the last 10 years. This has resulted in a far more relaxing and peaceful experience to view the gate way..almost completley free of hawkers and harrassment of any kind.

“Leisure trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Excellent one with lots of enough security checks...

Ideal to visit in the evening or night times...

Children can have fun...

Boating is available on paid basis...

Taj is located opp to Gateway of India... so, one can cover both in the same visit...

Near to CSTM, where Mumbai locals would be available at all times...

Also near to shipyard and all major areas...

BEST is offering frequent bus services as well from CSTM, Central, etc to Gateway of India...

Good one to visit in Mumbai....

May be nice and exciting one for the people travelling first time to Mumbai...

“Beware, everyone is after your money!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

We'll worth a visit and the wait to get through security. However, be aware that there are lots of people after your money. Spend some time here and then go to the Taj for lunch.

“Wonderful architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Must see! Lovely architecture and faces the Taj Mahal Hotel in Mumbai. Leopold Cafe is also close by, so don't miss that. You can enjoy an excellent view of the sea and watch enthusiastic crowds all evening. There are taxis available until late at night, horse buggy rides available during the day and early evenings, so enjoy the night away!
