    The tour was great but three times as expensive on Viator compared to people who paid for it locally. Sad.

    Good, all round experience. Before you go remember to:
    1 wear suitable foot ware
    2 observe protocols regarding taking photographs
    3 easier to be collected from hotel rather than make your way there. However, we are a mature age couple!

    Our guide was great and really exposed us to life in Dharavi. Also, remember to visit bathrooms BEFORE you go into the area as there is nothing suitable for westerners.
