Good way to explore the city and learn about the architecture/history! Guide was friendly and knowledgable. However, it was advertised as 3 hrs and was just over 2 hrs. Also was a little difficult to find the meeting place (Green gate) since cabs did not know location.

The tour by Raconteur was not only professionally set up but was excellently executed. We did a whole day long tour with them with a mix of walking and museums and the food delivery guys and laundry place. Our Raconteur Dwayne's knowledge of the city was exhaustive and you could see the enthusiasm in him for the city. He also... More

Good information about Mumbai. Timings were delayed and hence we had to skip Gateway of India. The organisers knew about the history of the places that we visited. Came to know a lot about Mumbai, which I never knew. Had an enjoyable evening.

Dhiraj, our guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable about the history and culture of Mumbai. Our walk was tailored to our specific requirements and included a 45 min tour inside "the laundry". Whilst this was an attack on our western sensibilities I felt it was invaluable in assessing the culture and history of Mumbai. I would thoroughly recommend it. At... More

This was a really interesting tour with Namesh. He is very passionate about the history and the architecture of Bombay which made it easy to listen to. Great to do a tour where you feel like you are learning about the culture and not being hassled. Thanks Namesh!

Our guide (Avrosh) was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and clearly passionate and enthusiastic about the history of Mumbai which came across very well during the tour. It was a relaxed experience and even though it overran there was no attempt to rush us along and Avrosh was very patient in answering all questions raised. Thoroughly recommended!
