If you want to see Mumbai at your own pace and not hurriedly by those Mumbai Darshan tours, then here's the way. (I have taken CST as base).
Day 1. South mumbai (Gateway of India, Marine drive, Musuem, Elephanta caves)
Just outside CST, there is BEST (mumbai transport service) bus stand. From there:
Bus no. 111 - For gateway of India (last stop),
...
more...
available every 5-10 mins. Fare - Rs 5.
From Gateway, you will get ferry for elephanta caves whose cost is around 150-200 (round trip) depending on the type of boat/deck you choose. There is ferry services for Alibaug too.
After exploring these, exit gateway from where you entered. Move straight. You will reach SP mukherjee chowk. Cross over to other side and you are in front of Chhatrapati Shahu ji maharaj museum. (worth seeing).
Then take any bus (prefer 108, 111) to CST.
In evening, take Bus no. 108 for Kamla nehru park (fare - rs 15). See hanging gardens and then again take the same bus for chowpatty & Marine drive. Enjoy the evening and move back to CST by bus no. 108 or to hotel by whatever you prefer.
DAY 2 (siddhivinayak, bandra)
Prefer early morning darshan to avoid long queue. I usually do darshan by 6AM.
Take a local from CST and get down at Dadar. Take FOB and exit towards Dadar west. From Flower market (just as you step down from FOB) you will get shared cabs for siddhivinayak (fare rs. 10).
If you go early morning, then come back to your hotel after darshan & wait for your clock to tick 10:30-11 AM (to avoid peak hours). At 11 AM take a local (preferably Bandra Terminating local) from CST and after arrival at Bandra, again exit towards west. You will get shared autos as well as Bus no. 211 (last stop is bandra fort/father agnel ashram, take ticket till there, fare - Rs 5) . Go to band stand, bandra fort, see the sea link, film stars bunglows/flats. Come back to CST and rest. In the evening can go to Marine drive to see the sunset or shop in south bombay (your choice).
Day 3 (Juhu beach, film city, Haji Ali)
Take bus no. 28 from CST (outside the bus stand), will drop you at Juhu beach. Enjoy the morning (you may get to see some film stars too). Take a local for Goregaon from Vile parle station and then take an auto for filmcity. There is 2 hr guided tour (rs 600) which will take you to famous spots. Come back to Goregaon and take CST local.
In the evening, you can take bus no. 28 and go to Haji ali dargah and if you have time, then you can take the same bus first to Cumbala hill post office bus stop (for national museum of indian cinema) and see the dargah in return.
These are the major places I have covered. There are more places which are very much accessible by the public transport system of mumbai.

COVID-19

ONLY COVID-19 Specials are running.
As Corona cases are increasing rapidly, Members are advised to TAKE extra CARE these days.
1. AVOID going outdoors even if lockdown is easing.
2. ALWAYS wear a MASK when OUTDOORS.
3. Wash hands frequently. Do NOT touch your face.


REMEMBER: PREVENTION is the ONLY Option. There is NO CURE.
