Get a fascinating look at 2 different aspects of life in Mumbai on this full-day tour. Walk through the streets of Dharavi to witness a hidden side of urban India. Then go behind the scenes of Bollywood with an on-set visit during the filming of a movie.
What to Expect
Home to nearly one million people, Mumbai's Dharavi district has the dubious honor of being the largest slum in Asia. This tour aims to break the negative stereotype associated with the slum. Put aside your initial apprehensions and discover a place that's alive with small scale industries and high community spirit.
See why Dharavi is the heart of small scale industry in Mumbai. Experience a wide range of activities such as recycling, pottery-making, embroidery, soap-making and leather tanning. Most of these things are created in innovative ways and in very confined spaces.
When passing through the residential spaces, you will feel the sense of community and spirit that exists in the area. People from all over India live in Dharavi, and this diversity is apparent in the temples, mosques and churches that stand here side by side. A tour through Dharavi's narrow alleys is quite an adventure, and you will leave with an enlightened sense of the purpose and determination that exists in the area.
After your walking tour of the Dharavi slums, see the glamorous side of Mumbai as you drive past the homes of famous screen stars of the Bollywood film industry.
Enjoy lunch in a local restaurant, then get a behind the scenes glimpse of Bollywood film-making. You will be taken onto a movie set to witness filming and be given exciting insight into the mechanics of the largest film industry in the world.
End your day with a screening of a Bollywood film in a classic Mumbai cinema.
