Karan, our guide was so nice, and in just a short span of 2 hours he covered over 9 places with us!
"It was an amazing experience. The tour operators were very helpful and accommodating with respect to our needs. The sailboat was absolutely neat and clean. The guy doing the sailing for us was also very friendly and courteous. He had knowledge about the boat as well as knew about everything related to sailing that an average customer would want to know about. "

I went with my family on this trip and stayed there for two nights. Early check in, slight trouble with that. Also, slight issue with our room allotment. Both the instances were because of the junior staff members or trainees. Senior staff are courteous, and will go out of the way to take care of their guests. The food was excellent. The rooms are comfortable and modern. Overall, was lovely being there. Thank you Thrillophilia for making last moment arrangements with instant bookings for us.
This is one of the tour of Mumbai as we covered all the important areas of mumbai mentioned as in package. Well coordinated. Thanks for a great mumbai trip.
