Packed with people geeting a biat-ride out around the harbour. Queues without any structure so as a tourist up against fellow TOURISTS of Indian citizens you are really dead meat unless you push and shove. It's a VVIP Gate with a solid history but really...More

A beautiful part of Mumbai, the structure, the sea, the landmark Taj Mahal hotel, the pigeons, and, most importantly, the authentic feel of the vibrant, crowded city combine to make this a must-do!

Is is a great monument to see but is extremely busy. Go early to miss the huge amount of visitors who arrive throughout the day. Quite dirty around the outside but still worth a visit.

Crowded. Lot of people trying to get you to buy things or hire them as guides. Go early in the morning when it is much less people.

For a iconic landmark it's not as clean and overly crowded . But I would still say worth a visit as can be doubled up with visit to The Taj.
