My husband and I booked this tour while in Mumbai on a cruise. The tour included 3 other couples. Our experience included much more than just food! The guide, Shailesh, encouraged us to ask any questions we had about the city, culture, etc. and was open and honest when answering. The variety of food was excellent and it was wonderful to travel by local train, taxi, and bus. We would absolutely recommend this tour to others!

Fun experience: definitely tried some things that we would not have otherwise. More than just a food tour, it helped us learn a bit about other parts of Mumbai. It did feel a bit rushed--we hustled through markets and other areas without time to even look up. Also, it would have been really nice to be given a handout with the names of the foods we tried (and the places).

Sagar was a wonderful host and this tour was the best thing we did in Indian. The food is amazing and he takes you to places you'd unlikely ever find on your own. He was a fantastic guide and I can highly recommend this tour for anyone with an adventurous palette wanting to see a bit of India with the help of a native. Highly recommended!!

Great tour, got to see some parts of Mumbai that I might not have seen if I'd been by myself. Food was really tasty and gave me an idea of dishes to try in future. Guide was great and had a lovely personality

great expirience! very nice guide, delicious fod! amazing moments in Mumbai. You have to do it!
