What people are saying about Mumbai

A great way to see Mumbai in a short period of time

I booked the 3 day Mumbai tour through Get your guide. Everything was run fairly seamlessly (although I wish I had some more details on the daily timing farther in advance - for example, my tour of Elephanta was done by 1:30pm and if I had known that in advance I might have planned something else for the afternoon). The guides were overall really great. In particular, Rahul (Roy) who led my city tour + slum tour was excellent. He had great english and knowledge about everything he took me to see. The lowlight was the Bollywood Studio tour (if you don't have 3 days I'd suggest skipping this) - my guide didn't speak English that well and wasn't an "expert" in Bollywood movies so I didn't learn any anecdotes or history about the Bollywood movie scene, which I was looking forward to. The elephanta caves tour was also really really interesting, and my guide on the island was really knowledgeable and very nice. I had the same driver, Bikram, all three days and he was really nice & reliable!

A great chance to look behind the scenes of Mumbai City

The tour was very well organised with a fluently speaking young guide living in Dharavi. He provided a lot of information on a broad variety of inhabitants, their jobs, daily routines, stories and migration backgrounds. We were talking about tough challenges that the inhabitants are facing every day but also about many positive aspects like recycling, cultural richness and strong identity. Pick-up from hotel worked like a charm. I called the organiser ahead to double check the confirmation. He was reachable on phone and provided the right information which gave me good confidence. As a city planner this was an great opportunity. Getting insights into the inner workings of India's largest city and an alternative perspective on development projects. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Very good guide and driver. Extra charges were a ripoff.

Our guide was excellent and she knew an awful lot about Mumbai. The first guide we've ever had who refused a tip at the end! The operator was of a different calibre. He insisted we pay 2 x $20 extra for the car's entrance onto the dock area, even though they didn't come to the dock but made us walk the long, hot stretch to where the car was outside the gates. He was annoyed when we questioned this....so maybe you should change the false information in the advert. We did have a very good and full day of sightseeing though.

Stunning sculptures in a beautiful setting

Its hard to believe that these majestic sculptures were made 100s of years ago without benefit of the tools we have today, and that they have survived so well for such a long period of time. Our guide was Nitin, the local guide who lives on the island, and he was terrific. He explained all the meanings of the sculptures and their relative positions to each other and to the rising sun, and he clearly loves this island. He also took us through to see the simple local temple used by the villagers.

Amazing experience! Highlight of our trip!

Dhaval was an incredible guide- really smart and personable, and so sweet. We felt like a part of Dharavi and were amazed at how much pride residents have. Truly a must-see if you’re in Mumbai. And Mystical Mumbai is way more than a guide company- they run classes for students, and give generously to the community. Look no further and make sure you do this one!
