Owner description: Reality Tours and Travel is a responsible tour operator providing fun and authentic experiences around India. We invest 80% of our profits back into the communities we visit through our NGO Reality Gives. We are especially well known for our educational Dharavi Slum Tour that shows visitors the industrial and residential areas of one of Asia’s largest slums, located in the heart of Mumbai. We also offer city, village, multi-day and customized tours and we recently expanded to New Delhi and the Sanjay Colony Slum. Our tours educate visitors about the issues as well as opportunities in slums and hopes to encourage them to understand underprivileged communities better. We use 80% of the tour profits and 100% of merchandise profits to fund our sister-NGO Reality Gives that runs and supports a variety of programs in Dharavi and Sanjay Colony. Our goal is to provide authentic and though-provoking local experiences through our tours and to use the profits to create change in our communities. Our vision is a world where all tourism promotes cross-cultural understanding and local development. Our NGO, Reality Gives, provides young people in the local community with high quality education and experiences to help them maximize their potential. We do this by focusing on English, Computer and Life Skills classes as well as a series of activities and workshop in expressive art and sport. We run these program out of three community centres around Dharavi.

We had a fantastic half day tour in Mumbai with a car and a driver, Our guide was fantastic, I think we never would have seen all those interesting places in that time on our own. It was a great day.

Pick-up from cruise port was no problem, booking and payment in advance was easy!

We can just recommend this tour!

Our guide Jaana and a driver picked us up and dropped us back to our hotel. This visit was one of our best experiences in Mumbai. Any unease we felt at gawping into peoples' private lives was quickly dispelled. We came away with a lot of respect for the hard working people in Dharavi and we met some lovely people ...... there were lots of smiles. It's good to know how Reality Tours supports various projects in Mumbai and great to learn of its responsible tourism awards of which it is rightly proud. Jaana was a brilliant guide, we were so pleased to meet him

We booked a Dharavi walking tour of 2.5 hours, the booking is really easy and no need to pay in advance which was really good because we booked in India already. Meeting point was at Churchgate and we drove with train to Dharavi, a pleasure to have a ride in a train! Dharavi tour is really impressing but same hard to digest....Reality tours is an NGO supporting different projects in Dharavi, so by booking a tour you provide to the NGO. I can really recommend to do the tour and see the heart of Mumbai!

Expected this to leave me sad and feeling pitiful for the slum residents. However couldn't have been more wrong. I feel uplifted and in awe of the wonderful Dharavi people. You must make time for this on your trip. Our guide was knowledgable and engaging and patient with any questions the group had. Such a success story for the people of Dharavi slums. The charity has really made a difference to their lives and long may it continue!!
