This week we took the walking tour of Mumbai and found the experience to completely fulfill our expectations. I love the idea of having students as your guides, whom we found highly informed and passionate about their city. Our guide, Rucha, was all of these things. She provided the relevant political context to understand the architectural and cultural attractions she... More

I took three wonderful tours with Raconteur – Heritage (Omkar), Apollo Gate (Nihar), and Bandra (Sunita). Omkar is a Mumbai University student who is studying history, and hopes to become a professor, which is fitting, because his knowledge of Mumbai history and Mumbai today seemed to be comprehensive. Nihar shared a number of stories related to the Apollo Gate area,... More

As I was sat in McDonald's garden waiting for my guide for the Church Gate and Heritage Mile Walk I suddenly realised that the sugar cane store holder lived under a tarpaulin attached to the back of the stall. Welcome to raw Mumbai. There were three of us on the tour and our guide Viraat. Who was also the CEO.... More

OK, I can live with people not wanting to provide their services, but find it a bit rude that having promised to call back to arrange a time/date for a walk Akshay at Raconteur never got back (or indeed took my call). They might be good but that is no excuse for sheer lack of professionalism!

On their website and their confirmation emails, they state that the Bandra Walk was supposed to be 2.5 hours. However as lovely as our guide was, we only got a 1 hour tour. When we questioned the company as to why that was the case, no answer was provided - only replied ill look into it. The 1 hour we... More

Dear Sir, As per the email sent by our CEO, 2.5 hrs is an indicative maximum time of the walk so that guests can plan the rest of their day. Our CEO has personally spoken to the Raconteur who conducted your tour and he has assured us that there was no negligence on his part for the walk. As you... More

Had an amazing full day walking tour around Mumbai. My guide, Sunita, was truly fantastic and full of knowledge about Mumbai history, architerture and culture. We kicked off with the introduction to Mallakhamb yoga, visited open air laundry - Dhobi Ghat, then did a 4 hr walk around historic parts of the city which inc CST station, heritage walk, Mumbai...

I'm not going to give away any of the information of the tour because there's lots to learn. It was much more interesting than I thought it was going to be, I learned quite a lot of new... More

The walk through historic Mumbai was fascinating. Mainly because my guide Omkar Salunke was so informed. The only thing that was a bit confusing was the meeting point which wasn't that clear. But once we met it was great.
