This is perfect place to visit, you will need 3 hours approx inside to explore caves if you are nature lover & historian. Best time to visit is during rain and winter seasons

We are in Mumbai for I day only, how far is it to the caves from the international cruise terminal. How long does it take to get there. Do you know of any tours that will pick up from the cruise terminal in the morning and have us back by 4.00pm in the afternoon.

If you are just for a day, you can skip this and instead pay a visit to Gateway or Elephanta Caves. Also Monday is a holiday for almost all tourist attractions in the city, so confirm before you depart for any of the places.
