Full description
Discover how the Colaba area is home to many historical buildings and the best way to visit is by walking as you can enjoy the breathtaking array of architecture all along the streets. Start the tour off at the Gateway of India, the landmark of Mumbai. Sitting by the Arabian Sea, this majestic arch is a photographer's delight. Pass through local markets as you make your way to the Fort Area. Meander through the quiet lanes of Kala Ghoda and Fort, taking time to interact with locals. Stop at the Balaji Temple, dedicated to Lord Vishnu, where you can observe local customs. End the tour with traditional snacks and tea at a local's favorite spot.

Our guide was fantastic, very professional, knowledgeable, friendly, kind, helpful and his English was totally perfect. We learned a lot about Colaba's history and one if the best tours in Mumbai. We would highly recommend this wonderful guide to everyone. Sorry we can't remember his name but he came from the kerala region in South India and it takes him days in his train journeys to visit his hometown once a year. We wish him a very Happy New Year from us in Scotland. Thanks for a wonderful tour.
