    Really informative guide, who knew his stuff and showed us some very interesting sites, off of the beaten track.

    We booked a week in advance with the Mystical Mumbai tour company for a private Jewish Heritage tour ! $120/- for 2. Tour of 4 hours. We the2nd of December the guide and driver met us and we informed them informed the guide we were not interested in any other filler sight but would like to spend more time at the 3 synagogues and Chabad house. also clarified about taking photographs and assured it was not a problem. First to Sassoon Docks. (( Did I say we only wanted to see the 3 synagogues and Chabad house ?!) No photographs allowed and the police threaten to confiscate cameras. We then go to Chabad House. We stand in the rain. Finally a woman comes out. says Chabad house is not open Has been shut since Covid19 lockdown started and is not going to open in the near future. We are annoyed as this is clearly the tour company's lack of research. At MEGAN ELIYAHOO SYNAGOGUE. The guide repeats what is written in Wikipedia. We are there just 15 minutes. At MAGEN DAVID SYNAGOGUE the caretaker guides us and say that Magen Hassidim Synagogue is closed for renovations ( Did the Tour company not do its groundwork? ) its now just 11.30. We are driven around till 1.30. I am incensed that the tour company took our money but showed us just 2 of the 4 Jewish religious sites. I wanted to speak to the manager and after repeated calls he spoke to me 2 days later. I wanted him to reimburse us for what was promised but not delivered. He said he cannot. That I should cooperate ! This is a scam.

    The tour was well organized and very informative. We learned a lot about Jewish history in India and about the attack in 2008. The synagogues we toured are beautiful. We highly recommend this tour and Mystical Mumbai Tours.

    1. Could not find tour operator because they had no sigh 2. Drove us to a different location where we waited in car for over an hour before tour started 2. Guide was totally surprised to see the itinerary & we needed to explain what we want to see 3. Had absolutely NO KNOWLEDGE about Jewish history or the places described in itinerary 4. Was on a phone all the time & just drove us to places on itinerary 5. Level of guide's knowledge: at the end of the 'tour' asked us if Star of David is always displayed in a synagogue and what it means

    By Mystical Mumbai. It was very interesting and very well organized. The newly opened exhibit at Nariman House about the terrorist attack was informative and moving.

    Devi was THE BEST guide ever !! So personable, friendly, kind, helpful and knowledgeable. His English was perfect and he freely shared experiences and information. I TOTALLY felt like I was walking around with a friend and not a guide. Thank you for a beautiful experience.
