This UNESCO site is a must-see if you are touring Mumbai. The beguiling beauty and scale of Elephanta caves and the effects of western conquest is deeply moving. We found it helpful to use the services of Trical, a local guide who explained the multitude of Hindu beliefs behind the carvings and statues. As a way to support the islanders only people living on the island can give tours at the caves, so you will need to engage a local guide before you get there. There’s a 120 step climb to the caves which can be challenging in hot weather. The one-hour long ferry ride was fun and offered beautiful distant views of Mumbai skyline and the harbor. Many thanks to Sahil and Sam of Magical Mumbai Tours for arranging the tour.

Interesting tour and enjoyed visiting the caves and seeing the monkish. Depending on where your hotel is you should allow enough time. The ferry ride is approx 1hr and then there is the waiting time for departure at the docks and the tour itself. We originally booked a 10am tour however were able to change it to an earlier one so that we didn’t feel rushed to leave for our flights. As it was it took about 4.5 hrs. The company were very good at allowing us to change. We called them and them they picked up on first call the day before.
Pickup was on time, the guide that picked us up had enough English to explain what was happening and stayed with us until we got to the island where we met a local guide whose family and himself still leaved there. His English was very good and he knew his topic well. Be prepared for a lot of steps going up. We didn’t feel rushed and there is shade from the trees and the stores even so i would recommend the earlier the better to avoid crowds and heat.
When we returned to Mumbai our tour guide took us to a store, which we didn’t want to visit however the car was parked nearby. The return car was not as well maintained as the first and our driver was different. We also agreed to take a colleague of theirs in the car so that he could get back to his office after dropping us off at the hotel.
All in all a good experience

You do not need a guide or organised trip. Use George Michell's excellent book. Buy tickets at the landing stage entrance behind the Gateway of India at the waterfront and avoid touts who will try to sell you expensive boat trips on the plaza.

The pickup was on time, the boat ride to the Island was great. The tour guide on the island was marginal. Even though he was dressed professionally and his English was understandable, he was not clear at all times and got frustrated when we could not understand what he way say and asked him to repeat himself. There are 120 steps to the caves so be aware of this fact before booking this tour. There are tons of shops along the way to the caves and they put a canopy above each store so it blocks the sun from making the walk up those stairs bearable. The cave itself is amazing. The carvings in it is truly superb.
