Attended the Ballard Estate to Apollo Bunder Raconteur walk today!! This was my 2nd walk, had attended the CST to Chruchgate Heritage Mile walk last month. Really enjoyable experience. Our raconteur was Saurabh who was really good with the trivia and facts and patient with the questions everyone posed. Will definitely come back for more and fall in love with... More

I bumped into Raconteur by chance as i was reading on the net on walking tours of Mumbai. I wanted to engage my daughter with something different during her vacation beyond movies and plays and thought of a walking tour which is both fun and different. I was quite apprehensive as i wasnt sure if my daughter would appreciate it... More

We spent 4 days in Mumbai and were lucky to have Raconteur Walks as our guides to this very nice city. Our schedule was well planned to visit the highlights in the city in a comfy car and knowledgeable guides that answered all the questions we had throughout the trip. They also recommended us shopping places must hang out places,... More

I've recently moved to mumbai and was eager to spend my weekend by doing something other than go to the mall/movie. I discovered raconteur walks on bookmyshow. They had arranged a walk in Bandra. The walk lasted for about 2 hrs on an early Sunday morning and cost ₹ 750 per head. It was a great experience knowing the history... More

Mumbaikars (Bombayites) pass the busy VT and Fort area everyday without realising what a wealth of history and architecture they ignore. On a Sunday morning, with a Raconteur guide opening your eyes, the place magically transforms itself and the monuments and buildings reveal themselves. The first luxury hotel made from cast iron, the wall that surrounded the old city and... More

Wonderful experience to be guided by enthusiastic youngsters who love the city and extoll all the virtues of the city along with bytes of how it is being neglected over the years. If you want to see Mumbai from over the years check out their walk that walks you down memory lanes with a fascinating sense of history!

I had taken a tour of South Bombay and the walk opened up old alleys where the British, Parsis and Maharashtrians coexisted and flourished. The guide was extremely well informed and well read, and provided answers to the barrage of questions on history and literature, patiently and at great length. The walk is a definite must for people to understand... More

Im was om the Bandra tour today and I loved it! First of all I was the only one on the tour and the tour took place nevertheless. Got great cultural, historical backgrounds. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and kind. The route and Bandra itself is nice, a hipp, old, peaceful area with lots of old buildings. The tour ends... More

To tell you the truth, I had no idea what the Raconteur walks of Mumbai would be like. In a strange way, I was almost dreading the experience. Why? I hear you ask. Well, it's because Mumbai means so very much to me that I was anxious that one of my old loves would be presented in a way that... More

... except the Bandra one (currently living in Bombay) and they have all been excellent. Well researched tours, friendly, eloquent, interesting guides. Each tour takes in a different period/geography of the city.
