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.
It was altogether good 1 day trip. Organizer Shailesh and Driver Mukesh organized the trip very well.
