    What to Expect
    Your tour begins with pickup at your Mumbai hotel and transfer by private vehicle to the Gateway of India ferry terminal. Board your ferry for the short journey to Elephanta Island, taking in waterside views of the city of Mumbai and coast.

    Upon arrival at the island, your guide takes you through the seven caves in the Elephanta Caves complex. The caves were cut from solid basalt rock in the 5th to 6th centuries, although the builders' identity is a matter of debate. The main cave features high ceilings punctuated by tall support beams, columns, and pillars, and original wall art with detailed reliefs and carvings depicting the goddess Shiva.

    Walk with your guide to Stupa Hill and the eastern part of the island where you learn about the excavation work and the Buddhist wall art in two more caves. To end your, return to Mumbai by ferry, then continue to your hotel with a private transfer.
