Experience Mumbai in the calm and cool of the early morning.
Sleeping bodies dot the pathways, devotees perform their morning puja (prayer), and early birds head out for a jog before the heat of the day arrives. This is Mumbai as you have never seen it before: calm and peaceful.
While the rest of the city is only just beginningto wake up, we take advantage of the empty streets and cool air to explore South Mumbai by cycle. As we wind our way through the back lanes, we will visit must-see Mumbai sights like the Gateway of India and CST Station as well as some hidden gems like Sassoon Dock and Bombay Panjrapole (cow sanctuary).
At the end of the tour, we will stop for a well-deserved South Indian breakfast of dosa, idli, upma, and much more.
See the famous facade of one of the busiest railway stations in the country. Gaze up at the station Victorian Gothic architecture as you learn about Mumbai only UNESCO World Heritage Site.
