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.
