We LOVED this street food tour. There were only 4 of us on the tour, and our guide was really informative, with excellent English. We visited 3 different areas of Mumbai, and tried about 12 different dishes along the way. Whenever we enjoyed a dish, we were offered more of it at no extra cost. GREAT value for money, especially as a) so many similar tours are way more expensive, and b) the proceeds go towards education in the slums!

We had an excellent tour of Dharavi. The tour was hosted by two very guys full of knowledge and respect. The tour showed the industrious and vibrant side to a community which would otherwise be not be accessible.

On the other had, on the same day, we did the food tour. It was probably the worst, most overpriced food tour that i have every been on (and we have been on a few). Our guide had very little knowledge about what we were served. We felt dragged from between a few street vendors without explanation. The guide had NO real passion for the tour or food. The only information provided was were we can get the best marijuana in India (the north apparently FYI).

Thanks so much for taking the time to review your time with us in Mumbai - it's great you enjoyed your time in Dharavi so much and that you were able to connect with the industriousness and vibrancy of what we feel is a very important part of Mumbai.

It's disappointing you didn't have as good a time on our Food Tour. As our guides are from Dharavi or similar communities they are typically very passionate about what they do and we also spend a lot of time training them on each tour to ensure they have the knowledge to complement this.

That you experienced neither of these things is unacceptable, and contrary to most people's experience - our food tour was recently listed as one of the top ten in the world and over 99% of guests on the tour tell us they would recommend both the tour and their guide.

We will work hard to understand why you didn't have the same great experience as thousands of others have had on this tour and thank you for your feedback. If you're back in Mumbai, or over in Delhi please reach out as we'd really like to introduce you to more of our tours, to give you a clearer sense of why we are so highly rated.

We had a brilliant afternoon with Dev showing us around on the walking tour of Dharavi... we all learnt so much and enjoyed seeing the inner workings of an amazing and vibrant community. Dev was a great guide - really informative, friendly and fun. We all felt very safe and comfortable for the duration and the kids in particular enjoyed the experience... including a quick game of cricket with some of the boys of Dharavi towards the end (no hitting sixes though... you're out if you lose the ball!). Reality Tours is a great organisation and I can't rate them highly enough - a really positive social enterprise that has been a pleasure to support. Thank you!

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!
