Full description
Your expert tour guide will meet you at 4:30AM at your accommodation. Have you ever thought about where your food comes from or how that newspaper reaches your hotel room? This 4-hour tour gives you an insight into how trade works in Mumbai and the city's life that begins at dawn. The emphasis on fresh food in Mumbai makes mornings so important in terms of trade. Drive to different marketplaces to see the business traders go about their daily routine. Your first interaction will be with a newspaper vendor and then you walk across the street to the fruit , flowers and vegetable wholesalers who are surrounded with men and women bargaining for fresh supplies for the day ahead.  If you are still sleepy – the next stop is bound to wake you up, the smell of fish! The Sassoon docks are an incredible experience. It is the city’s first wet dock and the only one open to the public. You will also take small distance train ride and at the end of the tour you will attend Morning Prayer in one of the famous temples before being dropped back off at your accommodation.

Anthony was an excellent guide. A really exciting morning tour, full of places visited, well organized and conducted. It leaves its mark, it allows you to know and understand the city well. A tour to be associated with others, made at different times of the day. It gives the opportunity to discover and get to know some of Mumbai's best known and most famous places and activities, approaching the city to its awakening. Too bad it lasted less than expected.

Very well organised personal Tour. Hop on hop off in Mumbai in just the right mixture. Going to local markets where one would not find his or her way on its own. The fish markets were my highlight.
