Nikesh is an engaging and knowledgeable guide, speaking good English, and his tour covered a wide cross-section of Mumbai. A challenge for us was that I had just had major surgery on my hip and was still partially on crutches. Although I'm pretty agile, we hadn't realised quite how much walking the tour involved. And Nick's natural inclination is to walk VERY quickly. He did his best to slow down but I suspect this was rather difficult for him! In the end, we sadly had to bail on the last couple of stops. Luckily my husband and I were the only two in the group so it didn't matter. In retrospect we would have preferred to have been introduced to more purely local dishes instead of the Keralan thali - Mumbai's famous vada pav, for instance, wasn't even included. But perhaps Nick had this planned as a surprise for the final stop?
The female guide was very well informed about everything, her English was perfect and very understandable. We walked, went with different caps and had a ride with a train (women's section). So I experienced a lot of different parts of Mumbai, even a Fishing Village, Second hand Market, Lokal Market ... The guide (Sukanya) always asked in what I would be interested. It was definitely worth the money. I would always book it again. !! Thank you for the great experience.
My husband and I booked this tour while in Mumbai on a cruise. The tour included 3 other couples. Our experience included much more than just food! The guide, Shailesh, encouraged us to ask any questions we had about the city, culture, etc. and was open and honest when answering. The variety of food was excellent and it was wonderful to travel by local train, taxi, and bus. We would absolutely recommend this tour to others!
Had a very good and knowledgable experience with my guide Sukanya. We did the heritage walk and got on the train, as well as seeing Taj Mahal and Gateway of India. My favourite part was going to the hindi temple near marine drive.. We then went for lunch at a local Israeli cafe which was delicious! It was an easy and flexible walk, which helped me get my bearings with an introduction to the city. Enjoy Mumbai, one love xx
Fun experience: definitely tried some things that we would not have otherwise. More than just a food tour, it helped us learn a bit about other parts of Mumbai. It did feel a bit rushed--we hustled through markets and other areas without time to even look up. Also, it would have been really nice to be given a handout with the names of the foods we tried (and the places).
