Know More about this tour

Markets are essential to daily life in Mumbai, and your guide offers insightful commentary throughout your 2-hour afternoon walking tour. Starting out from the Regal Cinema in Colaba, your first stop is Crawford Market, popular with locals for its household items and wholesale goods such as vegetables and meat.

The market, founded in 1871, features Romanesque and Gothic architectural styles that define South Mumbai. In addition to imported cheese and homemade chocolate, youll also find sales of exotic animals. (Please be advised that some endangered animal sales take place at Crawford Market.)

Head into the chaos of Kalbadevi and Bhuleshwar bazaars, and take in the sights and smells of Indias spices as you sip a complimentary cup of tea or a soft drink. Then stop by the indoor Mangaldas Market, established in 1893, where some of Indias most famous fashion designers purchase fabric for their creations.

Marvel at its 100 shops of vivid cloth before a visit to Mumbadevi Temple. In this oasis away from the bustling streets, learn about India's most practiced religion as Hindu priests bestow blessings called prasad upon their devotees.

Next up is a stroll through Mumbais flower alley, famous for nearly a century for its saffron-colored marigolds and red rose garlands. The final stop on your walking tour is Bombay Panjrapole, which shelters more than 350 cows and other stray animals right in the middle of the city. To increase their karma, local people shelter and feed the cows, considered sacred to Hindus.

Your tour concludes at Madhav Baug in Bhuleshwar.
