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.

After lunch, we continue our 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. People from all over the country live in Dharavi. The diversity is apparent from the existence of mosques, temples and churches standing side by side. A tour through the narrow alleys is quite adventurous as you leave with an enlightened sense of the purpose and determination that exists here.

After the walking tour of the slums, take a look at the completely opposite, glamorous side of Mumbai, which is famous for its skyscrapers, beautiful beach and home of world's biggest film industry "Bollywood". 

Your tour ends as you are dropped back off to your hotel in Mumbai.

  • 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.

  • The tour and the guide were both excellent. We wanted to try Pav Bhaji while we were there so he adjusted our tour so he could take us to a Pav Bhaji restaurant for lunch. Both the Mumbai and the Dharavi slum tours were good but I must say the Slum tour was an eye opener and our favorite tour of our entire 21 day trip in South East Asia.
