Full description
See the best of Mumbai while traveling the local way on this authentic tour. Ride the famous suburban train, hop on a classic red bus, cruise around town in a typical black and yellow taxi, and look on as millions of Mumbai’s working-class head out in the morning. Markets such as the Dadar Flower Market and the world famous Dabbawallahs (the workers of India’s intricate lunch delivery system) will also be explored.

For lunch, a special tiffin (lunchbox) lunch will be delivered by a dabbawallah, with which you will enjoy a picnic at a nearby park.

Following the picnic, you will receive an overview of religion in India (which is integral to the lives of most Indians), and you’ll learn about Hinduism and Islam, as well as Jainism. You will then admire the Haji Ali in the middle of the sea, enjoy views from Mahalaxmi Temple, and receive a one-of-a-kind perspective of Mumbai (and Marine Drive) from the Hanging Gardens. Later on, you experience Dhobi Ghat, the world’s largest open-air laundry.

Great to use public transport - bus, taxi & train - to see the local life in Mumbai. We visited Dadar flower market, big outdoor laundry “shop” in Dhobi Ghat, dabbawalas at Churchgate station, Victoria train station, Chora thieves market, a walk at Marine drive, and other religious visit such as Haji Ali, & Mahalaxmi Temple. We also have a chance to enjoy an outdoor small lunch with the group in a garden

Congratulations to the guide, young and brilliant boy. Pleasant and ironic speech, he loves his city and it shows. Fun to experience the lifestyle of the inhabitants of Mumbai for half a day: transportation, markets, the amazing outdoor laundry and the incredible lunch box delivery system. Fun to experience the delivery of the meal in person (I recommend providing a spoon). Absolutely recommended!
