Our dealings with Magic Tours of India (Mumbai Magic) were excellent from start to finish. Our contact was (Ms.) Deepa Krishnan, and communications were prompt, clear, and thorough. We were to arrive in Mumbai by cruise ship, and had various sites that we were desirous of seeing. All of this was communicated to Deepa, and she created an itinerary for... More

I chose Mumbai Magic Tours based on a recommendation. They run a very good tour by locals who are really knowledgeable about the city. They offer great pre-set tours, and if you want can customise the tour to your own interest. I customised my tour on the day and saw some awesome sights around the city. Highly recommended!

Very good tour at a good price to get to the highlights of Mumbai city. A local student that was born and lives in Mumbai is explaining the history, important and interesting facts of what you see. Taking local transport really places you amidst the real Mumbai life. The lunch at a clean local restaurant was also very nice and... More

Best tour iI have ever been on. So interesting and different. Our tour guide Sita was fantastic, she knew so much; giving us invaluable insight into the life and people of Mumbai. As we walked, used the public transport (local bus and train), and ate at a delicious local clean restaurant- we saw, learnt and experienced more in those 4... More

I met with Nirmala for the Mumbai Local tour yesterday. Despite the heat and humidity, I had a great time, the experience and the guide both awesome. Seeing some of the great works of Architecture and learning about the history of the city as well as jumping on local buses and trains was good fun. The local resturant Swati is... More

The tour and my guide Nirmala were fantastic. The overview of the history of Mumbai starting at the Gateway Arch and Taj Hotel was a wonderful introduction. I loved being able to walk around, hop on a bus, take the train, and take a taxi. The snack at Swati was delicious - a great introduction to hygienic street food culture.... More

We went on a walk around the Dharavi slum with our local guide, Faizan, who is a university student who grew up, and still lives, in the Dharavi area. We were just the two of us and our guide, which meant that we had a very intimate tour and felt less like tourists and more like locals. It was amazing... More

We had a wonderful morning with Nania who led us on a private tour starting at the Crawford Markets and explaining the detail behind the market and history of the area. Nania gave us a great "local" Mumbai view..

Several of us from a cruise ship had a wonderful experience with Mumbai Magic's student led local tour. There were eight of us, and we were met at the pier and transported to the Gateway to India where we met our three students. We split into two groups and traveled mostly by foot, but also by train, bus, and taxi.... More

Based on other tripadvisor reviews, I contacted Mumbai Magic by email to arrange a one-day whirlwind tour of Mumbai during a cruise stopover. All correspondence was handled promptly and professionally. When we got to Mumbai our guide met us on time and took us to everything we had arranged to see and do in our very short time -- the...
