This was our first time in Mumbai and the tour was absolutely excellent. Our guide was very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the history of Mumbai, it’s current development and the different religions there. Alam went out of his way to make sure we were able to experience the most authentic side of Mumbai and did an amazing job even though coronavirus restrictions are still in place. We chose to have the lunch option and the food was fantastic. The car we travelled in was well air conditioned and the social distancing elements were excellent. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Thank you so much.

Great to use public transport - bus, taxi & train - to see the local life in Mumbai. We visited Dadar flower market, big outdoor laundry “shop” in Dhobi Ghat, dabbawalas at Churchgate station, Victoria train station, Chora thieves market, a walk at Marine drive, and other religious visit such as Haji Ali, & Mahalaxmi Temple. We also have a chance to enjoy an outdoor small lunch with the group in a garden

This is by far the best the best tour I've been to throughout India. I really got to see and get a taste of Mumbai. My guide was very knowledgeable and was able to give me in-depth information, spoke English very well. My only regret is that I didn't get to book more tours with them.

Hitesh is a great guide and the tour was interesting on the train and bus but then sadly included some trips by share taxi as well. I know that a bus would probably take too long in the traffic but would be a good addition.

absolutely recommendable, because you can really experience Mumbai live !!!
