The tours were amazing! On Tuesday our tour guide Karishma brought us all over town and we saw multiple temples, mosques, and religious establishments including the Haji Ali, Shree SiddhiVinayak Ganapati temple, and the oldest Jain temple in Mumbai located near Malabar Hill. We did countless other activities and landmarks, but our favorite part was going to the Dhobi Ghat and learning about their way of life and taking in all of the colors and vibrancy of the people. We also had an amazing Indian lunch and Karishma let us try the Ladoos her mother made her (I love Indian sweets!).
On Wednesday we went out with a guide named Rucha. We traveled north to Bandra and learned about the fishing villages and the Portuguese influence and saw all of the old tightly woven buildings where the families live. On our way to bandra we stopped by a recreational facility where there were large outdoor fields with school kids playing Indian sports, a gym where they practiced yoga and gymnastics, and a learned about the community elements. We went to the Crawford market on our way back to Colaba.
We did a ton of other stuff too! We got to see a good mix of the major land marks and touristy elements with having a local perspective and inside look to some of the communities. We had an amazing time with Raconteur.
