Helicopter Joy Ride over Mumbai: This is the best way to look at the whole of Mumbai. The crowded, big city is viewed the best way with this. Despite being a Mumbai native girl, I grew more than half of my life in Ooty. While I got a job back here in Mumbai, I felt like a first timer here. Funnily, I started travelling and exploring in my own city as it has got more than enough to induce the travel buds of any passionate traveller. I travelled Mumbai in various ways and this helicopter ride was my favourite. It covers the complete city, and it is indeed beautiful. The view of Bandra-Worli link from the air was in fact spell binding. I personally loved the whole experience, and also, this can be availed at a very nominal fee charges these days. I recommend this to all no matter you are resident here or a traveller.

Many unknown and unseen pictures of Mumbai was revealed during our tour. In today's world, we are so much attracted towards all the glamour and hardly bother about those faces who brings us these glamour. But while we were walking down the narrow and bustling lanes during this tour, we got to see the real picture. Everyone must try this tour and witness the very original pictures of Mumbai that are hardly brought in the focus.

The playful waves that ushers love, the gentle breezes of the sea that incites romance, and the candle light dinner that brought us yet closer than before...everything was so very romantic and were really treasurable. All thanks to the warm treatment of the crew members and definitely to the gracious team of Thrillophilia for arranging it so perfectly.

Wow! Yes wow is the word. It was a splendid experience doing Rappelling & Kayaking near the river side. It’s not as easy as it seems in movies, but not tough too. If one sheds initial inhibitions then I guess, it can be an awesome experience and memory that can be cherished forever.

Departing from Gateway, we sailed pass some of the Mumbai’s oldest lighthouses which I had seen only from the land as of now, but with this sail, I got to see it from the sea, and the view was amazing. Accompanied by sea gulls, the experience of the gentle splash of the water as we sailed around was memorable. We were taught the basics of sea awareness. It was amazing. We also learnt how to orient ourselves in the water as we sailed in the sea. As we were passing the Naval base, which was an amazing sight, and the shipping channel was seen where we saw huge ships heading out to far away lands. The captain on board, I forgot his name though, gave loads of information about different types of boats, yachts, and sea vessels. The captain asked us to look out for submarines, and he also said that there would be dolphins. We spotted neither. We also handled the boat one by one for a short while. I chose to relax on the deck and the captain even allowed us to put our feet in the water. It was a mesmerising feeling to feel the water wash away the feet. The sailing experience is such a romantic adventure. This time I came with my cousins, and I am planning to take my fiancé here soon. While I told about this to the captain, he asked me to try it in the morning session as one can catch the sunrise at that time from the yacht.

It was a much needed break for us! The ambience we got to enjoy in the boat was just like the fairy tale kind of story. The way we were welcomed abroad was so catchy. After this, as the boat started moving smoothly over the Arabian Sea, we found it very romantic and loving. After few minutes, we were in the middle of nowhere. It was a feeling that we should not come back to the shores. The openness, love, romance and the beauty of the evening were so captivating and enchanting; the arrangements for the dinner was superb; you really cannot wish more than this. But then came the sad part when we had to return back. Seriously, if there would have option for staying the entire day and night, we would have surely availed that.
