Amazing - my guide Rucha did a great job of explaining the history of the area and bringing out the character of all the different neighborhoods. Would highly recommend!

I rate this company highly. Communication for booking was excellent and my guide for the walk was a intelligent highly educated and friendly university student full of interesting information about the area. I really enjoyed the walk and the complimentary water and energy bar provided. I thought the gift of postcard pack of historical photographs was a nice touch

Nihar and I... More

Late start, early finish. Guide was knowledgeable but spoke fast so hard to keep up. Tour a bit random - could do with more flow about history rather than just random facts. Best bit was just chatting to guide about his life and experiences.

I did the Bandra walk tour with Raconteur Walks last week. The Raconteur guiding us was very informative and polite. Although born and brought up in Bombay suburbs, I hardly knew anything about the history of Bandra! The story telling abilities of the raconteur made the walk extremely exciting!
