  • Enjoy lunch with a local family
  • Explore hidden gems with local guide
  • Learn about Mumbai’s history and its place as the hub of Bollywood movies
  • Hear personal stories as well as UNESCO-listed sites and the Gateway of India
  • Private air-conditioned transport including hotel, port, and railway station pickup and drop-off
  • Duration: 3 hours



After pickup from your Mumbai hotel, or the port or railway station, set off to explore by air-conditioned vehicle. Hear about Mumbai’s place as India’s largest city and home of the Bollywood movie industry, and tell your guide if there’s anything you want to see more of: your itinerary is flexible.

Family lunch in my home and introduce my family member and our community and our lifestyle will make the tour more personal instead of showing just the tourist landmarks. Towards the end of the tour, we will walk to a nearby family home for a vegetarian meal. Not only will you get additional insight into Dharavi, but you’ll provide a local family with some extra income. Get comfortable and feast the local way, sitting on the floor and eating with your hands.

Of course, we do not want you to miss out on the basic facets of our culture in Mumbai, so the tour will also include background information about Mumbai’s time under British rule from the 18th to the 20th century, and admire the Gateway of India, built to commemorate the 1911 visit of King George V. See the nearby landmark Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, opened in 1903, and take in the historical buildings of Mumbai University, including the Big Ben-style Rajabai Clock Tower. Pause at the UNESCO-listed Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus station, and Dhobi Ghat, Asia’s largest outdoor laundry, and then move on to Mahatma Gandhi's former residence, the Haji Ali Dargah mosque, Jain Temple, and Banganga Tank. Admire Mumbai’s skyline from Kamala Nehru Park, and drive past Marine Drive’s colonial buildings like the Flora Fountain.

Your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel.

I am certified guide, licensed by the Ministry of Tourism. My friends and family use me as a human search engine for all things Mumbai-related! I am proud to live here, and really enjoy showing off the city to visitors. Being able to tell people about Mumbai's facts and figures is great fun. Lots of interaction on this walking excursion will make it more interesting. I've read countless books and attended many talks on Mumbai—so we have many great stories to share.
