I booked the tour in the very late evening, but Arshad was extremely punctual and organised! He genuinely cares about the comfort of the person next to him and he is very considerate of everything! I also appreciated that he’s very easy going and it’s pleasent to have a conversation with him. He knows every place by heart and engages the traveller with very interesting stories. As a female travelling alone, I can 100% recommend Arshad and will definitely reach out to him once I visit again. Thank you!

Mehadi Khan was a great tour leader,driver and made a new friend too!! He took me around Mumbai's important places to see, introduced me to the old and new places of Mumbai's vibrant city and people.Felt very sad to see the slums,where poverty and poor people live,but I believe people from India are the most polite,most welcoming and happiest people I ever met.

I had the opportunity to have a very professional guide during my journey in Mumbai. Nisar ( tour guide)was promptly at my hotel as arranged and we were able to visit many sites, obtain some background knowledge and have a fine lunch together. Day went well!

The experience was great with roaming around all interesting places of Mumbai.

Truly experience. Mr. Dinesh has my full recommendation
