I remember calling up Dinesh at about 11pm in the November of 2016 to book a tour of the slums with my cousin for our project the following day.
Thanks to Dinesh, the founder and single man army of the Mumbai Dream Tours project. His insights made it possible for us to explore the most sensitive and phenomenal areas within Dharavi and meet the most resourceful persons in the neighbourhood the very next day.
Undoubtedly one of the best guides in the city, his astounding sense of direction, astuteness, knowledge base and the ability to speak in Hindi, Marathi and English with the same fluency allows every local or tourist visiting the slum area an experience of a lifetime in exploring the rich, vibrant locale and culture of Dharavi.
Dharavi is truly a goldmine of talent and resources. And there is no better way to explore the neighbourhood with someone like Dinesh who was born and raised there. Thank you to the founder of the Mumbai Dream Tours and Travels for his unending guidance and support towards our project. I will always be grateful.More
