About Mumbai City Tours & Travel
Mumbai or ‘The City of dreams’, is one of the marvelous cities to visit India. The heavily urbanized city of Maharashtra has something in store for everyone- from backpackers and devotees to tourists who love to spend on expensive hotels and restaurants. The best way to explore the city is with our One day Mumbai local sightseeing tour by car. The thing about Mumbai that attracts people from all walks of life is its rich cultural, social and economic diversity. The rich and the poor, tall skyscrapers and even the world’s biggest slum, malls, and street bazaars, all amicably exist together in perfect harmony. Apart from urban marvels, the City of Dreams is also blessed with lakes, beaches, parks and historically significant buildings. Heritage walks are organized in the old city, that is South Mumbai. Marine Drive, also known as the “Queen’s Necklace” looks like a necklace when it is lit up at night.

We were met at Churchgate station and our train tickets were sorted for us and we headed off towards Dharavi. Having seen Slumdogs the movie, and knowing what a western slum area is like, I came in expecting to see something similar. Right from the start of the tour that preconception was blown away as the area revealed an amazing amount of business activity and community spirit. Don't get me wrong, living conditions were pretty ordinary but the people were making the best deal that they could and were very happy and supportive of their community. We were surprised to learn that there were distinct communities for the different ethnic regions as well as a police force, hospitals, schools and shops. Communities banded together and all chipped in to make advancements in their areas without any outside assistance. Our guide for the day was very knowledgeable about the area and answered our numerous questions happily. It seemed like in no time at all we had come to the end of the tour and all 3 of us were left with a totally different view of Dharavi. I would totally recommend this tour to everyone.

Our visit to Dharavi with Rajesh was truly amazing. I wasn’t sure I wanted to do the trip because I thought it might be disrespectful to “view “ people and their homes. Instead we saw a huge community of different faiths from different parts of the country going about their daily lives- children heading to school; home bakeries producing goods for markets and hotels; large scale recycling of plastics, from old broken goods to a finished product ready to sell back to the companies for toy and computer manufacture; potters and leather workers and much more. Walking the narrow alleys with their sounds and scents allowed us to see a completely different world. Rajesh took time to explain everything we saw. A must-do.

I had visited Mumbai many times but never before Dharavi. After contacting several recommended tour companies I booked the "Longer Yard" Private Tour of Dharavi with Slumgods, mainly because of their competitive pricing, quality of their guides and fast and responsive communication before the trip. I was picked up at 8am by my guide RAJESH and driver. The car was very clean and comfortable. The early start meant we were at Dharavi within about 20 minutes. I do recommend doing a morning tour. I didn't find Dharavi as shocking as I was expecting. To call it a slum is unfair because this is a dense urban environment, well ordered and in most parts clean and well cared for. I found the tour fascinating and inspiring. To see so many people from different communities living so close together in peace and mutual respect was humbling. I was able to take some photos with my mobile phone, but as always you should engage with the subject and ask their permission before taking a photo. The guide clearly explained when we were at a location where photography was not allowed or appropriate. Rajesh was an excellent guide. Young, enthusiastic and deeply knowledgeable. He took good care of me and regularly asked me for my feedback. A highlight was when we stopped at a chai stall ran by an immigrant from Rajasthan. It was a great opportunity to engage with the locals. I strongly recommend making a trip to Dharavi and choosing Slumgods for your tour. I would recommend wearing strong shoes that can be easily washed as inevitably there are some areas a little muddy or dusty. I also think its best to wear modest clothing (not shorts) out of respect to the local community.

Excellent tour and much better than I anticipated. You see what real life is like in the slum which is fascinating. It's a must do if spending a couple of days or more in Mumbai.

Conducted a field trip with my students for Geography. The guides were really helpful and tailor-made our experience. Raunak was really helpful and knowledgeable.
