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.

3 of us took a private Dharavi + Sightseeing tour which lasted 9 hours in total. We walked through the slums and had a great understanding of how it worked told by someone who had lived there when growing up. Afterwards we went to Mumbai's top sights and our guide took us to a very good restaurant to eat authentic Indian food. Guide was excellent! Broad knowledge and spoke clear english. It's a must if you travel to Mumbai!

Jitu, the tour guide was knowledgable not only about the festival, but also about the slums, the food and the culture. It felt like a 3 in one tour (festival, slum and street food). Not to mention we also took public transport and was experiencing the hustle and bustle of Mumbai.

5 of us took the tour with Reality and we had a fantastic insight to the back streets of central Mumbai.

Certainly an experience to be remembered, with a great guide who showed us places you'd never venture to on your own.

One of our most memorable afternoons in a month of travelling around India.
Could not recommend more highly!
A fantastic organisation, really professionally run and your tourist fee is reinvested into the work of the NGO.
I did a similar tour in the Rio favelas and it was nothing like this, this was a fully authentic experience with guides who have grown up in the slums.

I really recommend the train from Churchgate option if you are staying near the Fort. Getting the train was not only inexpensive (your train fare is paid for as part of your 850 Rupees price of the trip), but it gave us more time with the guide to learn about India. We asked so many questions and learnt so much! The trains it seems are a essential part of the Mumbai experience - don't miss it!

In my opinion the price is low for the high quality of tour guides, transport included, and a drink at the end of the tour. I would recommend bringing any extra cash for a small donation or buying something from their shop as it is a really worthwhile organisation. (they do not pressure you at all to buy anything).

Thank you to Bipin and Chetan for being such professional, helpful, sensitive and informative guides!

Our 2 comic guides Nano and The Champ were not only informative but absolutely passionate about Mumbai. Great fun and so interesting. The bikes are single gear and really old but the brakes work. The riding was flat and easy. The Indian veg breakfast was soo tasty too.
Thanks fellas!
