We chose to book a private car and driver rather than a tour as this enabled us to hand pick exactly which sights we wanted to see and leave out those we were less interested in. This made for a most enjoyable morning! We informed the company prior of what we wanted to see so they could work out the best and most economical route. Essential in the crazy Mumbai traffic! The driver happily obliged and googled a number of sites for us so we had some background knowledge before arriving.
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
Mukesh was our tour guide and he is excellent. He drove us around to the various spots in Mumbai and did it with enthusiasm, a wealth of knowledge and keen interest in showing us a good time. He was extremely polite and respectful.
Altaf geared the entire tour around the things that interested us and the timings that we set. Very knowledgeable and he managed to offer so much within the day you couldn't ask for more!
I had a fantastic day in Mumbai. Had not much ideas of what to see, but the guys showed me the best places. Very interesting.
