Full description
Your full-day adventure begins with pick-up from your hotel, the port or airport in Mumbai. Experience the iconic Gateway of India on the Mumbai Harbor waterfront. Explore the Dhobi Ghat (the huge and ancient open-air laundromat), Marine Drive and the Hanging Gardens (also known as the Pherozeshah Mehta Gardens). Take a ferry tour to get a glimpse of the Mumbai coast. You will get ample photo opportunities while a guide explains the importance of attractions along the way. Continue the tour to experience the famous Dharavi slum. Feel the sense of community and spirit as you pass through the residential area. People from all over the country live in Dharavi. Observe the diversity, apparent from the mosques, temples and churches standing side by side. Tour the narrow alleys and perhaps even leave with an enlightened view.   Afterwards, take a look at the completely opposite and glamorous side of Mumbai, which is famous for its skyscrapers, beautiful beaches and home to of the world's biggest film industries: Bollywood. See the masterpiece of ethical art and UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Victoria Terminus railway station, also known as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus.

We had a good and interesting tour with Rahul. He was very helpful and we learned a lot from culture and city life regardless of the sights. That made this tour with Rahul an exciting experience, which we will remember for a long time. Pick-up on time and reliably, flexible tour, uncomplicated, comfortable vehicle with air-condition and good driver.

Amazing Tour!

From start to finish this tour was amazing. Our driver and our guide, Sunil, collected us from the green gate of the cruise terminal. Sunil was very friendly, informative and checked whether there were any specific places we wanted to visit. He also checked our preference for food. We managed to fit in stops at the Gateway to India, Victoria terminus, the Oval Maidan cricket grounds, the Hanging Gardens, Dhobi Ghat outdoor laundry, Gandhi museum and a full tour of the Dharavi Slum, as well as a quick souvenir stop. Our ship changed docking times and this was accommodated by the company/guide. Would highly recommend.

Great tour!

I only had 10 hours in Mumbai between flights. Since I didn't want to spend this at the airport, I booked the tour and it was really worth the money. I was picked up directly from the airport and brought back there. My friendly guide Premsagar Sahani made the day interesting without rushing from one sight to the next. For me, the slums were the most impressive experience of the day.
