3 of us went on a Mumbai Heritage tour with Raconteur last Sunday. We covered the area around CST and Flora fountain. Our guide, Saurabh, was casual, yet knowledgeable. He is genuinely interested in the city's history and had a lot of unusual and amusing information. The walk was good fun. I would gladly recommend Racounteur's walk to anyone who... More

My husband and I did a walking tour of Bandra and learned so much about the history of this northern suburb, which was one of the islands that made up what is now Mumbai. It's an area with a lot of Portuguese influence, seen in the many Catholic churches and roadside crosses. Dwayne, our excellent guide, was very enthusiastic and... More

I had been for a Mumbai Heritage Walking tour last Sunday with my 7 year old son, and thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The tour guides were well versed with the history of the town, and presented the same in a very interesting manner to the kids. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking to know the history and landmarks... More

Relatively new to the city and living in the suburbs owing to professional demands, I have always been fascinated by and drawn towards the island city. After several rounds of rendezvous on my own, I decided it was time to change the way I was exploring the very south of South Bombay because I was not really learning much yet... More

Short & sweet: I had a great time exploring Mumbai with Viraat, who was a mine of information and a nice guy to boot who made the whole day a ton of fun. He was very flexible with the itinerary, helping to take me to some book stores that I'd asked about and a particular cafe I wanted to go... More

I went on the Churchgate & Heritage Mile Walk tour, and since it was my first time going on a walking tour, I didn't know what to expect from it. It turned out to be an interesting and fascinating tour as the tour guide weaved in stories after stories at each heritage pit-stop rather than reciting historical facts like a... More

The two walks I went for were spectacular. I live and work in Mumbai but the raconteurs on both walks made daily sights on my way to work monuments to history and architecture. Well informed guides who hold your interest for 3 hours - no small feat.

Very friendly and knowledgable. Always good to have some one local to provide concise and interesting guides with add-on information which may not necessarily included in typical guide book.
