Know More about this tour

Mumbai, one of the most popular destinations in India’s west coast, is famous for its people, culture architecture and the Bollywood film industry. 

Your full day journey begins with a pickup from your hotel /  Mumbai port /  Mumbai airport.

Experience the iconic Gateway of India on the Mumbai Harbor waterfront. Explore the Dhobi ghat (ancient open air laundry) Marine Drive and the Hanging Gardens. Take a ferry tour to get a glimpse of the coast of Mumbai. You will get ample photo opportunities while a guide explains the importance of these attractions.

Continue the tour to experience the famous Dharavi Slum. As you pass through this residential area, you will be able to feel the sense of community and spirit that exists among the inhabitants.

A tour through the narrow alleys is quite adventurous as you leave with an enlightened sense of the purpose and determination that exists here.

  • Sollte man unbedingt gesehen haben. Die Informationen des Tour Guides waren wirklich interessant.

  • The main part of this tour I booked for was the Slum tour, and that was tastefully and sensitively done, with my guide clearly being familiar with several people and friendly with them. I liked having a personal tour, but having another peer to ask a question or two would have been nice too.

  • I really enjoyed this trip, I discovered many interesting Mumbai sites, the guide was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I definitely recommend this trip.

  • I read the reviews on line and though this was clearly the tour to go for.
    Unfortunately it did not live up to it's billing. For a start although the tour was claimed to be around 8 hours for me it was less than 7 hours. Several parts were missed. The part Take a ferry tour to get a glimpse of the coast of Mumbai was completely missed. The Lunch included was not, I was dropped of at a restaurant and told to call the guide when I was finished, so i paid for lunch. The Entrance Fee's included weren't, although it was only 10 rupee.
    The walking tour of the slums was 1 hour and after that i was taken back to the hotel.
    The driver, Mr Pathak, was very friendly, the guide also quite friendly

  • This tour was awesome. My guide Kirtan was both entertaining and knowledgeable, and he was great about personalizing the experience for me. Our driver Mr. Pathak was also amazing, always on time, fun, and knowledgeable as well. I highly recommend booking a tour with this company, they really go out of their way to make sure your trip is perfect.

  • Awesome day out in Mumbai, a great way to see the city highlights in one day. A fantastic guide at Dharavi and during the day, totally customisable tour to meet your needs. Also got the added bonus of trying a few famous local dishes! Highly recommended trip to anyone short on time in Mumbai and wanting to see as much as possible.

  • I booked the Private Sightseeing Tour with Dharavi Slum Tour and had an amazing experience, especially as a woman travelling alone. My tour guide Sunil was fantastic, he taught me a huge amount about the city and were easily able to get around through having a driver. He listened to my feedback about places and adapted the tour to take me places that he thought I might be interested that were not on the scheduled itinerary as a Hindu temple. He also took me on a local train, something that I would have been too nervous to do alone but he made sure I was able to experience the local way of life. The slum tour was an incredible experience and Sunil made sure I felt comfortable the whole time and had a chance to interact with the people who live there in an uplifting and informative way. I would highly recommend the tour and slum experience too - some people had suggested the slum was not a place to go but I completely disagree and am so glad I went with such a great guide!

  • very interesting tour really enjoyed it and the tour guide was very knowledgable thanks

  • Tour was suppose to start at 9am. Got an email day prior to tour - said driver would be there 9:30am. We arrived in lobby at 9:15 and driver seemed irritated he had to wait. Slum Tour was good - very eye opening. It was a hot day so we were anxious to get in the car.
    City tour was just alright. We enjoyed the Ghandi museum most. Both driver and guides were on their phones constantly which we thought was rude. Decided not to get out of car at a few places because of the extreme heat. Can't control the heat, unfortunately.

  • This was a most remarkable tour guided by Kamlesh and driven by Pradeep. A safe driver in the tumult of Mumbai manic driving is essential and we felt safe all the time.
    We viewed many important sights including the Victoria Rail station, Dobbe Gaut, Monument Gate, Hanging Gardens, Mumbai University, Ghandi House, did some shopping and most importantly viewed both the commercial and residential parts of the slums.
    Kamlesh was very confident in this area and his advice, commentary and guidance was first class - we could not have been more pleased despite the sights one sees - this is real Mumbai and the tour is expertly delivered. Be prepared to have your senses assaulted but to leave knowing what life is like for the proud slum dwellers. This tour is very highly commended.
