Mumbai is one of India’s most vibrant and multi-cultural cities, but first-time visitors often only see the main sights. This 4-hour small-group tour will give you an insight into real Mumbai life, as you ride a local train, visit a traditional flower market, sample typical Indian snacks, and admire landmarks such as the Gateway of India and the Hotel Taj Mahal Palace.
What to Expect
Welcome to Mumbai. In the morning, your tour guide will meet you at the starting point at Colaba and begin with brief introduction to the tour. The tour starts with a walking tour of historic sites such as the Gateway of India, the Royal Bombay Yacht Club, and the Hotel Taj Mahal Palace.
Next up is the historic Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, formerly the Victoria Terminus, a beautiful railway station built in 1888. After admiring the architectural, take a train ride to reach your next destination, the local flower market. Marvel at the colorful flowers of many different varieties, from roses, marigolds and lilies to zucchini flowers. While you're there, take the chance to sample some typical Indian snacks.
Once you are done exploring the vibrant flower market and enjoying your snacks, continue to Dhobighat, the open air laundry. Everyone from big brands to local laundry shops alike have their cloths laundered here and it's a fascinating insight into everyday life. You will see how they handle such high volumes without any concrete paperwork.
We will take you inside the Dhobighat and give a Insiders Look at Dhobighat,a Unique experience.
Continue by train to Churchgate Station to see the dabbawallas at work, the Tiff-in delivery system which has a six sigma rating and has been a case study at Harvard University. Your guide will explain to you how it works and how they manage to get such a high rating, which only a few global corporations have achieved.
After 4 hours of exploration, your tour ends at Churchgate Station.
