    During my first stay in Mumbai this was one of 2 very carefully selected tours, and it was GREAT! Again a very good guide - thank you again Gurmeet, for all the information, kindness, and assistance provided! :-) Thank you to my driver Sunjay as well! We visited 2 famous and currently very active Bollywood studios, both located in Andheri East: 1. S.J. Studio and Entertainment, and 2. Chandivali Studio. We spent more time at S.J. Studio, the modern one (opened in 2000) of the two, but it certainly was worth it!: I had an overview of all the available sets, different halls, dubbing room, was introduced in the studio's history, enjoyed a few traditional and a modern dance performances, had a couple of video presentations, and - I even managed to pose for souvenir snapshot with Krishna Kaul during the live shooting of one of his TV series. Chandivali is one of the oldest remaining studios (82 y. old) with a rich history: many different sets there too, along with the most exquisite garden, attending even two live shootings there (the second one was the series from Bhuvan Bam)! I got a chance to attend the live shootings being performed at the time of my visit at both of the studios, S.J. Studios and Chandivali Studio, and was also given a chance to interact with at least one actor on the set! There were also others, like: Reyhnaa Pandit, Aparna Mishra , Kumkum Bhagya, Bhuvan Bam, and others.

    My Bollywood tour was not only great fun and very interesting but the tour guide made all the difference. Lawrence dSousa was a delight. He was knowledgeable, friendly, professional and patient. My group of 4 took to him the minute we met him and spent a lovely day enjoying his company as much at the the tour itself. I would have no hesitation in recommending him and would be delighted to specifically ask for him should I take the tour again.

    Lawrence (our guide) and Akshay (our driver) were wonderful hosts for our day getting to know the history and operations of Bollywood. We had no shortage of questions and curiosities, and Lawrence was able to answer them all - it is clear he is extremely knowledgeable on the topic. We were also very appreciative that Akshay knew the right shortcuts to take to avoid traffic and save enough time for a quick walk through Bandstand, Castella de Aguada, and a quick stop to grab ice cream, before headed home. Being from Los Angeles (Hollywood) ourselves, we enjoyed the contrast to production approaches and are leaving with a great appreciation for the industry and culture of Bollywood. We look forward to watching some of the movies we were recommended throughout the day!

    I recently booked a trip with Bollywood Tours as I had a spare day for sightseeing. I opted for the Full-Day Private Bollywood Tour with Meal. I was met by Akshay (driver) and Lawrence (guide) at my hotel at the time requested. They both were really friendly, welcoming, set expectations for the tour as you never know how Mumbai traffic is going to be. They had a great sense of humour and always ensured they played the best songs during the car drives. Lawrence was an amazing guide, enthusiastic, passionate about his work, exceedingly knowledgeable about the places visited. Learnt a lot from him about the studios/filming, the amount of people involved, behind the scenes sneak previews and surroundings. The meal at the restaurant was really good. Lawrence made the tour insightful, entertaining and enjoyable. Would really recommend him for future tours. Thank you Lawrence and Akshay for an amazing tour. Will be recommending you both to friends, colleagues and booking another tour with you both again when I’m next in Mumbai. Would rate them both 5/5.

    The tour was okay. Definitely not worth the money it charges for the tour. Was in traffic longer than the tour. Food was good and I enjoyed the behind the scene filming.

    We had a great experience doing the tour. Even though it was raining heavily the whole day, our guide, Asmita, was very enthusiastic and pushing us to see more even when we were flagging. But it all turned out good especially if you have an interest in bollywood history and dance. The dance performance by the group was good. Our driver, Malesh, was also good and knowledgeable.

    One call from our hotel to the tour office was all it took. we met Sunil our guide the next day and despite heavy traffic we were able to visit most of the important landmarks of the city. Sunil kept us entertained with the history of Mumbai during the ride. our car was comfortable and air conditioned.

    The Tour was great, everything. The Hanging Garden, the house of The Bollywood Stars, Marine Drive. The free meal was really good. And the Studio tour was more then excellent. Our Guide (Lawrence) was really great and explained our questions we had. I recommend that company. Thanks to them and keep up the Good work.
