OVERVIEW

Enjoy the sights, traditions and culture of Mumbai before spending three four nights of relaxation in Goa, lulled by the waters of the Arabian Sea.

Mumbai (formerly Bombay) is India’s most cosmopolitan city and its commercial capital, with a progressive and vibrant atmosphere. It does, however, also retain some signs of its illustrious past with a wonderful collection of British-built architecture, such as the Victoria Terminus railway station and the Prince of Wales Museum.

Lapped by the waters of the Arabian Sea and with shady palms swaying in the breeze, Goa's relaxed pace of life has always made it an ideal introduction to India. Home to some of the country's best-known and finest white sandy beaches, Goa is an ideal spot to finish your holiday.
