Full description
Beating its American rival for sheer chutzpah and volume, Bollywood belongs to Mumbai. This half-day tour is a unique experience letting you see into its soul. A driver will pick you up from your hotel in Mumbai, and your first stop will be a real-life movie set, where you will get to see a movie being shot.

Perfect for those with an interest in the art of movies, film studios and sets, you will also get a chance to see VFX visual effects and a Bollywood-style dance show. From the technicolor song and dance extravaganzas of the 1970s and 1980s, to the blockbusters of today, Bollywood is a tradition as essential to India - and more specifically, Mumbai - as Hollywood is to America and LA.

You will be escorted through a specially-created studio for an intimate look behind the scenes at technicians at work. You may even get the chance to peek inside a film star’s makeup room, and pose for souvenir snapshots with some Bollywood stars of today.

Next, you will step out to a dance show based on infamous routines from Bollywood films. Traditions from formal and folk Indian fuse with Middle Eastern techniques to produce entrancing Bollywood dances with a unique and energetic style. The talented dancers will perform 5 Bollywood routines for the audience, and then you will have the opportunity to try it yourself!

After lunch at a local restaurant, you will visit an VFX studio and observe how visual effects are created in Bollywood movies. Then, relax on a tour past the homes of famous Bollywood stars in exclusive areas of Mumbai, before taking your transport back to your desired drop off point.
