You’ll need to put your bartering hat on for this tour, as you’ll visit three of Mumbai’s biggest markets. First, you can get your haggling hat on at Colaba Causeway. This area’s streets are filled to the brim with shops selling jewellery, clothes, handbags and handicrafts. And you can buy coconut water, baked goods and fruit from some of the vendors, too. After, you’ll visit historic Crawford Market. It’s Mumbai’s main wholesale market for fruit, so you’ll find stalls stacked with mountains of mangos and grapes. Produce aside, you can check out the Norman-style façade and its decorative friezes, which were designed by Lockyard Kipling – the father of author Rudyard Kipling. Your last stop is in Bhuleshwar. This place is packed-full of bazaars, selling everything from jewellery to food. On your way back to the ship, you’ll also drive past the famous Gateway of India monument.
There’s a lot of walking on this tour, so we wouldn’t recommend it for anyone who has difficulty walking.
