Mumbai Local Tour with Family Lunch in Dharavi Slu

Description

On my local Mumbai Tour, you will learn all about Mumbai's place as India's largest city and get to experience the city from the local's perspective.

We will start with a family lunch in my home where I will introduce my family, our community, and our lifestyle, making the Mumbai tour more personal instead of just 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.

Of course, we do not want you to miss out on the essential facets of our culture in Mumbai. So the walking tour will also include a historical explanation of Mumbai's time under British rule from the 18th to the 20th century and a visit to the Gateway of India, built to commemorate the 1911 visit of King George V. We will also visit the nearby landmark Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, which opened in 1903, and take in the historical buildings of Mumbai University. We'll then pause at the UNESCO-listed Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Station and Dhobi Ghat, Asia's largest outdoor laundry. From here, we will move on to Mahatma Gandhi's former residence, the Haji Ali Dargah mosque, Jain Temple, and Banganga Tank. We'll finish off the tour by admiring Mumbai's skyline from Kamala Nehru Park and driving past Marine Drive's colonial buildings like the Flora Fountain.

Your tour ends with drop off back at your hotel.

About Me

My friends and family use me as a human search engine for all things Mumbai-related! I am proud to live here and 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. We are a group of 9 friends who started this initiative a few years back to showcase travelers to a different side of our country and let them get a true experience of our country and culture. We would love to show you our Mumbai in a way you will never forget!
