Mumbai is known for historic sites, scenic drive, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: don't miss a visit to Gateway of India, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, take in the spiritual surroundings of Shree Siddhivinayak, and snap pictures at Bandra-Worli Sea Link.
