Ganesh was a fantastic guide who really knows his stuff about the area - he told us about the different industries working in the slums, what life is like for the people and he always made sure that his guests were safe when crossing roads. I am a solo, female traveler and I felt completely safe on this tour. However, FYI that the Cafe Coffee Day that the tour company tells you to meet at is closed (permanently by the looks of it), so don’t expect to be able to wait inside for the guide to arrive. A suggestion for the tour operator is to meet at a different cafe or something that is open to make guests feel safer while waiting.
