Itinerary idea in detail

Includes international flights from a choice of UK airports, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Mumbai (Bombay).

  • Arrive into Mumbai where one of our local representatives will greet you. You'll then meet your driver and head into the city, to your hotel. The remainder of the day is at your leisure. This evening you might like to enjoy a drink in your hotel bar which has views across the city.

  • Rise early this morning for your dawn tour of this fascinating city. See fishermen bring in their catch, watch the flower and fruit markets come to life and witness hundreds of newspaper vendors frantically at work before the sun comes up. The remainder of the day is at your leisure.

  • With a turnover of hundreds of millions each year, and the title of being the largest slum in Asia, Dharavi is an eye-opening place of contrasts which you will explore with a local guide today. The slum is alive with incredible entrepreneurial spirit, but is also cramped, smelly and very dirty — it's good to go prepared with sensible shoes. The remainder of the day is at your leisure.

  • After breakfast, return to the airport to take the short 75-minute flight south to Goa. On arrival, a local driver will greet you and drive you to your hotel for the next five nights.

  • Today is free to enjoy your hotel's facilities; relax and unwind after a busy couple of days in Mumbai.

  • Today you might like to head to the beach to enjoy the Indian Ocean. Try a lassi from one of the local beach vendors or simply take a walk along the long coastline.

  • For some history, you might like to head to the old town to see the influences left behind by the Dutch and Portuguese. Your hotel can arrange a transfer, or try a local tuk-tuk ride.

  • Be sure to enjoy the local cuisine at many of the nearby seafood restaurants and cafés — always ask if the seafood was caught that morning and have it cooked how the chef recommends for the best flavours.

  • Your driver will collect you and drive you back to the airport today for your return flight(s) home. Your return flight will arrive the same day.
