Reality Tours and Travel is a responsible tour operator providing fun and authentic experiences around India. We invest 80% of our profits back into the communities we visit through our NGO Reality Gives. We are especially well known for our educational Dharavi Slum Tour that shows visitors the industrial and residential areas of one of Asia’s largest slums, located in the heart of Mumbai. We also offer city, village, multi-day and customized tours and we recently expanded to New Delhi and the Sanjay Colony Slum. Our tours educate visitors about the issues as well as opportunities in slums and hopes to encourage them to understand underprivileged communities better. We use 80% of the tour profits and 100% of merchandise profits to fund our sister-NGO Reality Gives that runs and supports a variety of programs in Dharavi and Sanjay Colony. Our goal is to provide authentic and though-provoking local experiences through our tours and to use the profits to create change in our communities. Our vision is a world where all tourism promotes cross-cultural understanding and local development. Our NGO, Reality Gives, provides young people in the local community with high quality education and experiences to help them maximize their potential. We do this by focusing on English, Computer and Life Skills classes as well as a series of activities and workshop in expressive art and sport. We run these program out of three community centres around Dharavi.

In all honesty: I was highly sceptical of the concept at first. What a mistake - so respectfully done. We did the 'Slum' and 'Street Food' Tours a few times over the years and it's such a rich experience. Go for it!

What a place to visit. Wonderful experience with an amazing guide. The contrast with life outside the slum is mind blowing. Example satellite tv dishes ,free wifi but no toilets. A must do in Mumbai

The Dharvai Slum was far more vibrant and entrepreneurial than I thought. I envisaged an appalling area with a sense of tension in the area but this was not so! There were two areas; the residential and business zones. The latter plays host to in...More
