If you are a first time traveller to the city and want to explore the Tourist precinct of Mumbai by foot, then this tour is specially designed for you. Covering the various tourist landmarks of Mumbai, this tour quite appropriately starts with the Gateway of India, the emblem of Mumbai tourism. This victory arch was built to welcome the British Queen to the city, and it’s only befitting to have it as our first stop. Right opposite, you will see the famous domed Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, which has hosted the likes of Barack Obama, Mahatma Gandhi, the Beatles and a host of other celebrities in its century old lifetime.
Post this, we will walk past the Royal Mumbai Yacht Club, the Police Headquarters, the NGMA and the city museum. En-route, we will stumble upon the Kala Ghoda area, which is the art area of Mumbai. Here amidst stories of Sassoon and Jewish history, you will hear stories about the Watson Hotel – the first iron cast building in the city that hosted Mark Twain. As you walk past the Session court and the high court, you will see the Raja Bhai towers, the Big Ben of Mumbai. This structure built by generous donation Premchand Roychand, a Mumbai based businessman, still chimes old British tunes once every 15 minutes.
Your final stop is the venerated architectural masterpiece – The Victoria Terminus Railway Station. Made famous by the movie Slumdog Millionaire, this Indo Saracenic structure sees over six hundred and fifty thousand people get onto the train station every day.
