Dharavi Slum and Sightseeing Mumbai!

Description

This is a private tour that takes you through one of the largest slums of India, Dharavi. Walking through Dharavi's small alleys will give you a real sense of this community and provide you with a unique, local experience. Watch artisans create all types of pots out of unfired, sun-dried clay or see the local women make fresh poppadoms.

Dharavi is one of India's largest slums. It is one of the largest, but it is the home of many small-scale industries in Mumbai. Dharavi's industries have an annual turnover of approximately US$ 665 million. During this Mumbai tour, you will see and experience these small industries. You will see businesses like recycling, pottery-making, embroidery, bakery, soap factory, leather tanning, poppadom making, and many more. Most of these things are created in innovative ways and tiny spaces!

In the afternoon you can decide where you want to go. The route that we suggest focuses on religion, and you learn about Hinduism, Islam, and the lesser-known Jainism. You can admire the Haji Ali in the middle of the sea, enjoy views from Mahalaxmi Temple, and get a one-of-a-kind perspective of Mumbai (and Marine Drive) from the Hanging Gardens.

By going on one of our tours, you will contribute directly to our sister organization's work, a nonprofit organization. We run some educational projects in the Dharavi area, but we also support other NGOs (charities) doing great work in the same community.
