Hop on a boat ride to explore the awe-inspiring Elephanta Caves and island!

A renowned Unesco World Heritage Site, the Elephanta Caves are one of Mumbai’s most spectacular temple sites, boasting precious collections of Hindu temple art. In fact, Elephanta’s cave-temples date back to 600 AD, named after the elephant statue that once stood near the island’s shore. 

To start off your day of discovery, we’ll take you to the busy Sassoon Docks, one of Mumbai’s oldest ports. Then, we’ll explore the beauty of the Afghan Church (one of our favourite churches in South Mumbai). Finally, we’ll hop on a ferry to witness the majestic religious wonders housed within Elephanta Caves. 

On Elephanta Island, you’ll wander through a web of subterranean caves. These caves hold highly prized statues of Shiva and other deities, as well as shrines, pillars, courtyards and halls, that are all carved out of rock. Listen to the tales and stories behind these sites. We’ll end the day with a delicious lunch with a local family.


Sassoon Dock

Visit one of Mumbai’s oldest docks, one that has been functional for over a century! Witness the hustle and bustle of the market in action in the morning.

Ferry to Elephanta Island

Jump on a ferry to a new world, the world of architectural wonder and history that Elephanta Caves offers. We’ll take you through the main caves, the west wing, the east wing, and all the tales that are associated with this wondrous site.

Lunch with local family

After all that exploring, we’ll take you to have lunch with a local family. You’ll be invited to sample the best of homemade Indian cuisine on Elephanta Island. (We’re sure you’ll be helping yourself to seconds!)

End Point

The Elephanta and Transport tours do an excellent job of giving you a sense of what daily life is really like in Mumbai and we loved the local lunch aspect. Overall, this is one of the best tour companies we have dealt with anywhere in the world, let alone Mumbai! If we are back in Mumbai we will definitely book with them again.
