Just like the name suggests, you’ll get a firm grip on Mumbai’s heritage on this tour. First on the itinerary is Kala Ghoda. This hip, arty neighbourhood’s home to a huge number of the city’s historic buildings, along with cute cafés, art galleries and museums. A stroll through this district is like an architectural checklist – you’ll see examples of Victorian Neo-Gothic, Indo-Saracenic, Renaissance Revival and Edwardian styles. Highlights include the grand-and-Gothic Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus railway station. Then it’s on to Mumbai’s must-see landmark, the Gateway of India. This grand colonial arch, which was officially finished in 1924, looks out over the city’s harbour.
