We did a tour that was informative, but we most enjoyed walking around on our own after the tour ended. My husband got a shave and haircut. While he was doing that I was befriended by a group of kids. I taught them a couple...More

We took our 3 children on this tour and were not sorry. (8, 10, 11). All three children walked away with a new perspective of what's important in life and how lucky we really are. This tour touched the soul, the heart and every sense...More

Visited with Reality Tours and the guides did a really great job of showing and explaining all that happens in this particular slum. The people don’t seem to mind you being there and appear almost oblivious to you in the main. The money from the...More

Dharavi is a well known place basically known for its crowd and tremendous amount of slums in it. One should visit here to see how actually lucky they are to have everything in life

I visited Dharavi with Reality Tours. The guide was a local resident. The tour was significantly shorter than advertised, and there was a certain amount of propaganda involved, but I did find it worthwhile on the whole. While it would be possible to do this...More

Dharavi was not on my list of places to visit while in Mumbai since I thought it would be uncomfortable for the residents as well as myself. I went at the suggestion of my tour guide and am really glad I did. Walking through the...More

Go there with a local guide, otherwise you hardly get to know something. That place is shocking (under which circumstances people can work) and amazing (how happy and friendly they are). It has shown me, how priveledged we, the western people, are, but also how...More

The Dharavi slums get smaller and smaller for every visit. See them before they disappear. With a local guide it is safe to walk in the mazes and see the most extraordinary things they do in the slums for their daily rice. I have never...More

This is a must see place, and not because it is a slum, and not because they made a movie here, but to see how more than a million people can live, work, reside, and thrive in such confined spaces. Our guide from Amaze Tours...More

We didn't take our kids but there were some people with kids around 7-9. I think it would be excellent for them. Just wear closed shoes! We stepped through dirty water, dead rats and possibly human waste! However, the... More
