My customized tour of Mumbai and surrounding areas really delivered! I enjoyed the freedom to design my itinerary, while also welcoming feedback and direction from my guide, Alam. I saw everything I wanted to see and more. Alam even added to our experience by arranging for us to take public transportation (train, tuktuk, bus) to some spots, which I probably wouldn't have done otherwise. It was great to have a local figure it all out for me! Alam was a wonderful and personable guide who never wants made us feel rushed. He was generous with his time and very knowledgeable about all of the sites we visited. His experience of living in Dharavi for 27 years enhanced our tour of the slum and gave us a much better understanding and deeper appreciation for the life people lead there. I highly recommend this tour and Alam!

Amazing tour by Sayyed. While there are many misconceptions about Indian slums, he was passionate about proving them wrong and showing the many industries active in Dhavari and its community. It was an interesting experience seeing the recycling, textile, pottery, and other industries in the area, and Sayyed had in-depth knowledge of each from which we learned a great deal! Would highly recommend the tour to others curious about the Dhavari Slums.

We booked the Tour on short notice and had everything confirmed still for the day after - our driver and guide, Kadir Sharif, was super helpful, very good & safe driver and took us around the highlights, plus let us explore when needed. Many thanks for the great experience, Kadir & team!
