What people are saying about Mumbai

Good introduction to Indian street food generally

Nikesh is an engaging and knowledgeable guide, speaking good English, and his tour covered a wide cross-section of Mumbai. A challenge for us was that I had just had major surgery on my hip and was still partially on crutches. Although I'm pretty agile, we hadn't realised quite how much walking the tour involved. And Nick's natural inclination is to walk VERY quickly. He did his best to slow down but I suspect this was rather difficult for him! In the end, we sadly had to bail on the last couple of stops. Luckily my husband and I were the only two in the group so it didn't matter. In retrospect we would have preferred to have been introduced to more purely local dishes instead of the Keralan thali - Mumbai's famous vada pav, for instance, wasn't even included. But perhaps Nick had this planned as a surprise for the final stop?

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.

Absolutely wonderful and totally safe (as a woman, travelling alone)

The female guide was very well informed about everything, her English was perfect and very understandable. We walked, went with different caps and had a ride with a train (women's section). So I experienced a lot of different parts of Mumbai, even a Fishing Village, Second hand Market, Lokal Market ... The guide (Sukanya) always asked in what I would be interested. It was definitely worth the money. I would always book it again. !! Thank you for the great experience.

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!

Fabulous day out - more like being with a friend than a guide :-)

I had an amazing time wandering around, and taking many auto-rickshaw rides and definitely would do it again. Highly recommend this option for anyone wanting something a different to the ordinary tourist day out.
