Really good tour, we enjoyed it very much. Both Dharavi and the open air laundry were interesting and our guide Nano was pleasant, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. You also get to experience the local bus and trains like a local, though not in rush hour. Seeing how the Dabbawalla works was also interesting. Highly recommend this tour if you are in Mumbai.

I was picked up from the airport as agreed. The sightseeing tour was great. The driver Surrendra, who was also the guide, had a lot of knowledge. There was enough time to see the sights. After the tour he took me to the hotel. A great day in Mumbai ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Imran was very kind and respectful. He knows a lot about the city and he made me feel very safe traveling as a solo woman. The service was professional and the car was clean and comfortable. Recommended!

Our guide Nainesh was very knowledgeable on everything. He was also very jovial and easygoing. I would thoroughly recommend him.

I will keep it short; mister Imran was perfect! Enjoyed the tour very much, thanks for the good care!
