Being a Travel Agency Owner and a Mumbai Resident, I'm always looking to experience various aspects of my vibrant city from different and unique perspectives. Which is why I contacted Viraat Kasliwal, dynamic head honcho of Raconteur Walks, and chose their Afternoon (3PM) Sailboat Tour! There is a morning tour too, for you early birds out there. Oiled up with... More

Would definitely recommend the walk to those interested. The ranconteur was well informed and even though we were only 2 people on the walk, was completely involved and interested in showing and sharing every detail. Also had no problem going beyond the stipulated time and answering any number of questions. The sovenier at the end is a treat ! The... More

I had a pleasant enough tour. The guide was pleasant and knowledgeable enough it just finished at 'half time'. I did the "The Apollo Gate and Front Bay Walk" which is advertised as " Approx walking time : 3hrs" sadly it was over in 1 hour 18 minutes. I did email the company but didn't get a reply. I was...

Hi Richard, Thank you for your rating and bringing to our notice the short duration of your tour. I agree the duration of your tour has been shorter than our standard tours and lieu of that may I offer you the same tour with another more qualified Raconteur. Denure is one of the newer Raconteur and hence is a bit... More

I will remember the storied history of South Mumbai and especially its buildings thanks to the guide, who was very informative. Not for young kids though - we had a 9 year old - who quickly lost interest and started becoming naughty. I learned why Bombay was called so by the Portugese, the great fire in the port that caused... More

Was in Mumbai for two days, decided to do a heritage walk. Faced with a couple of options, I am really glad that we chose Raconteur Walks! Dwane, our guide, was the perfect walking companion. He was passionate about the subject, extremely knowledge, a gracious host and a warm human being. Thanks to Dwayne and Raconteur Walks, we saw historic... More

We took this walk on a day which started drizzling and turned into a monsoon deluge: never been this wet! Our guide was great and fortunately we had virtually completed the walk before the heavy rains came. We learnt a lot and furthermore we revisited a lot of the buildings on subsequent days, remembering the history of each building. We... More

Booked 4 of the 5 walking tours they offer (Bazaargate tour was unavailable at the time) and they were all amazing! We requested that we get picked up and dropped off since we were staying in the South Mumbai area. Both of our guides were very hospitable and considerate. For every tour they gave each of us a hat, a... More

What a lovely way to spend an evening in South Mumbai! We met the Raconteur team at Kala Ghoda where we started the tour....the guides were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They definitely knew their jobs and kept us totally engrossed.....We did the 'Chai Pe Charcha' tour with them....which simply means 'conversation over a cup of tea' and so it was!... More

It was nice to learn more about the South of Mumbai and its history - even as we have been living in Mumbai for a while. The guide had a lot of knowledge and was very committed. I would recommend this tour!
