    Despite having lived in Mumbai all my life, I had never ever visited Kanheri Caves. It took a few European friends of mine who were on their very first visit to India who got a strong recommendation for Kanheri Caves from a German tourist to have me explore the idea.
    Nestled in Borivali East is a world that seems unexplored, untouched. Blanketed in green, enveloped on all sides by Mother Nature, these caves are perhaps the most untouched part of this crazy chaotic city of Mumbai.
    You'll find it difficult to believe that we five were the ONLY tourists in this entire Kanheri zone.
    These Buddhist caves are archaeological heritage monuments dating back to the period between 1st&10th century AD. A total of 110 caves including some that are inaccessible have the most aweinspiring carvings, frescoes & ancient paintings & engravings that one can ever imagine.
    The access to these caves is from brilliantly maintained stairways that are as ancient as the caves themselves. The acoustics of some of the caves are phenomenal with perfect echoing that lends a mystic aura to the site.
    One of the security guards offered to share his knowledge about the caves, precious information on their history, especially the different mudras of the Buddhist statues & the various components of the sculptures.
    Make it a point to visit the topmost point which is a table-top part of the hillock.
    Impossible to believe that such a serene verdant slice of land is a part of the cacophonic city of Mumbai.

    Cycling inside SGNP post monsoons is sheer delight! It gets a little crowded sometimes. So best to go early mornings. But the entire trail leading right upto Kanheri caves is a sight for sore eyes.

    Mubeen was an amazing guide and a delightful host to this wondrous city. He showed us some of the highlights of Mumbai and shared with us his insights, his passion and his love for this city. From drinking chai to buying spices, we were able, thanks to him, to experience the vibrancy of Mumbai. Thank you Mubeen for an unforgettable tour!

    I went on the Bombay by dawn tour and thoroughly enjoyed every minute! Viren is a great guide with an immense knowledge and a huge passion to share facts about his home city. I would totally recommend him as a Bombay tour guide.

    I only had one free day in the city, but I wanted to see the "real" Mumbai. As a solo female traveller I couldn't have chosen a better company - booking was easy with Mohammad and Mohammad and Maze were brilliant, friendly and knowledgable guides.

    Mohideen and my driver picked me up from my hotel for the Full day Mumbai City Tour - Sassoon Docks, Cuffe Parade laundry, Crawford market, the Dabbawalas, Chhatrapati Shrivaji station, Gandhi house, marine drive, hanging garden, gateway of india, a local train ride and local thali for lunch. Maze was a fantastic guide - friendly, funny and full of interesting facts and stories about the city.

    After lunch, Mohammad took me on the Dharavi slum tour. This was an amazing experience and I feel privileged to have seen life here with the expert and easygoing guidance of someone who lives there. Mohammad knows his stuff and I enjoyed my walk through Dharavi with him before being dropped back at my hotel.

    I would highly recommend taking a Inside Mumbai Tours to anyone who finds themselves in Mumbai. If you want to experience this amazing city in a more authentic way , this is 100% the way to do it.
    Thanks guys!

    It was a very interesting excursion around the second famous Mumbai slum with an excellent guide ! It was totally safe and unexpectedly better from our initial expectations. Recommend going there with a very welcoming, friendly and knowledgable guide Musa.

    Took the sunrise sail. Ayesha is a delight to be around and makes the experience an inspiration for more. She gets you involved by helping with putting up the sails. I got a chance to steer the boat. The fresh air was welcoming and the sun decided to behave too. Overall a very peaceful or may I say meditative experience.
    The breakfast as part of the experience was awesome too!

    We did the Old Delhi Street food tour and it was excellent. Our guide, Mr. Abhishek, was great! Not only was he wonderful with explaining the history found in Old Delhi, he made us feel comfortable walking the busy streets. The food was also excellent. I would highly recommend this tour for people interested in learning more about Delhi and who love to eat.

    I was having a hard time finding some kind of street photography workshop that I could attend while in Mumbai. I reach out to Mumbai Moments, and while they were very clear that they did not have a photographer on staff, they could take me to some great locations for some great photos.

    Rahul Devaliya was my guide and he was incredible. We went to the vegetable and flower markets and the fish market.

    I would highly recommend Mumbai Moments for a specialized tour of Mumbai!

    We were on a long awaited holiday to Mumbai with our 12 year old son few months back. One of the main reasons we wanted to visit Mumbai was to do the Bollywood Tour and hopefully with luck on our side, meet our favourite actors and actresses.

    We were very lucky to find Mr. Rahil Khan through the excellent reviews of his company on Tripadvisor.
    We were not disappointed at all. When Mr. Rahil heard that how eager my wife and son were to meet the actors, within a short notice of few hours he organised the visit to the Studio for us. We could not believe that how easily Mr. Rahil got access for us to meet all the actors and actresses who all seemed to be good friends with him. (We later got to know that Mr. Rahil Khan is an actor and director himself). All the stars were very nice and were very happy to meet us and they agreed to take plenty of pictures with our family. This was the highlight and once in a lifetime experience for us which we will never forget.
    My son and wife were overjoyed.

    We also got to see live filming of a television show and web series, which was a very thrilling experience.
    The sound recording room and live dance show were great fun and very enjoyable.

    We were well looked after by WOB team who work in a dedicated and sincere manner to make sure that you have a great enjoyable day.

    We highly recommend the Bollywood Tour with Mr. Rahil Khan and his team. It is more than value for money.

    Thank you.

    Manish Sehgal.
