Highlights of Mumbai Private City Tour with Dharavi Slum

1. Highlights of Mumbai Private City Tour with Dharavi Slum

Your journey will start with a dedicated hotel pickup, before visiting the Gateway of India and the iconic Taj Mahal Palace Hotel. Following this, you will head to the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Train Station, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then you will head to the Crawford Market, a British-era market that has been standing for over a century and is a great place to see an array of spices. Following this, you will enjoy an insider's tour of the Dhobi Ghat, a colorful open-air laundry.  Next will be a 2-hour exploration of the Dharavi Slum, the largest slum located in a megacity in Asia, now well-known thanks to the Oscar-winning film "Slumdog Millionaire".  Visit Mahatma Gandhi's residence, where the famous "Non-Cooperation" started. Just off the coast of Mumbai, you'll also visit the iconic Haji Ali Dargah mosque. You will then head to Malabar Hill, before seeing the Banganga water tank and having a stop at Marine Drive, where you'll see a spectacular panorama of Mumbai. The guide will also take you for a short train ride on the Mumbai Local to experience the so-called "lifeline of Mumbai". You'll also be visiting the cow shelter or "Panjrapole". Finally, take a look at the famous Mumbai dabbawallas, who drive around the city delivering lunches from homes to workplaces. The guide will take you to the assembly point of the dabbawalas, where you can take photos and learn about their interesting business model. You'll be amazed at how much they can carry by themselves. After a day of exploring Mumbai, you will be dropped back to your hotel.

What people are saying about The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai

This was an incredible experience. It was moving. Dave is extremely humble and kind, with an incredible wealth of knowledge. He also has a lovely sense of humour. Being able to see this island with someone who was raised there made it authentic. The village and the caves are difficult to describe, it’s something that must be seen. From taking a ferry, walking the earth, observing the architecture, seeing the peaceful way in which people live in unity, to hearing the ancient history of the place was all nothing short of incredible. Many many many thanks. Kavendren

We had a great day with our guide, happy and helpful all day, took us to places if interest, a good spot for lunch, helped us sort our phones out which we hadn't had time to do on arrival,prompt and on time pickup, communication before to arrange all details was good. Nothing was too much trouble. Chatting it seems you can book him or if not available his brother will stand in for anything else you may want to plan during your stay in India. We would definitely recommend getting in touch, doing the tour of Mumbai and see where else it leads.you.

A perfect combination between rural & urban places starting with the pleasant ferry tour to Elephanta island & the amazing caves. Very interesting explanations by David, our guide on the island. Back in Mumbai a fascinating and very dedicated private tour by Dinesh, our second guide which even included a short ride on the local train and a walk through the world’s largest outdoor laundry DhobiGhat. Highly recommended!
