Full description
Explore the Dharavi Slum, the largest slum located in a megacity in Asia. The slum is now famous thanks to the Oscar-winning film "Slumdog Millionaire". The tour will open your eyes to this bustling area of small businesses and a thriving community. Start the journey by meeting your guide at Dharavi, and experiencing the everyday happenings of this unique area. Numerous small businesses are thriving in every corner, making anything from exotic soaps and handmade cosmetics, to pottery and textiles. Throughout the walking tour, benefit from being a small group. Stroll easily through the narrow alleys and see how locals live their life here. You'll have a chance to interact with many people in the community. You'll also learn how the local recycling industry works.  You'll also be amazed at how diverse Dharavi is, with many different traditions and beliefs gathered in the same place. Your 2-hour tour will end at a pottery factory, where you can ask the guide to get you a taxi.

Dinesh our tour guide did a great job at showing us the community of Dharavi. Very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of educational information. An eye-opening experience that showed us both residential and working industry. No photography was allowed to respect the people living there. I recommend this tour for everyone.

after meeting up with the guide, he explained what a slum is and what to expect during this tour, then we walk right into it! to be honest, it can be a little scary at first, the place is crowded and dirty but the people are nice and hard working, the kids want to say “hi” and we learn about the different jobs they do. Overall it was an amazing experience, life is not easy for everybody, I truly recommend the tour while you're in Mumbai
