Dear Michael, We truly value your feedback and thank you for bringing the issue to light. We are extremely sorry to hear about your not-so-good experience. We apologize for the guide being late. Mumbai traffic can be crazy, but that is absolutely no excuse or justification for being even 5 minutes late & we as an organization cannot tolerate this. We have spoken to the concerned guide about the same. He has assured us this will not happen again in the future. Best regards, Team GeTS

We loved this tour! My husband was not keen on my booking this but thanked me so much afterward because he thoroughly enjoyed it. The Dabbawalas and Dhobis are nothing short of amazing. Our guide did lots of other fun things that we were not expecting. Loved the train ride but getting off was a big scary. Highly recommend this tour. It will give you a small glimpse of Mumbai.

Was so looking forward to this tour when I read about it. After going through the checkout I clicked on details and it said it was not available on weekends or public holidays. But it let me book that date!!! Unfortunately for me, there is not another day available - there is another public holiday, I have my dental treatment the next day, then the weekend again and then we leave! I had better get a refund!

Dear Jenny, We really regret that you were not able to do the tour, which is one of our most recommended Tours. The date you wanted to book was actually a holiday and somehow your tour got booked, but when we came to know about this technical glitch we immediately canceled the booking followed by full refund. Had you been able to do the tour, it would have been an amazing experience for you. Nevertheless, we hope to see you in the near future. And we once again apologize for the technical error. Warm Regards, Team GeTS Holidays

Our guide Ajeet/Ajit and driver picked us up (family of 4 adults, 1 toddler) from our hotel. Our guide Ajeet/Ajit was excellent. Very knowledgable about Mumbai. He pointed out various interesting sites and facts throughout our drive from the hotel to dhobi ghaat and Churchgate. There was never a silent moment on the trip. He threw in these little trinklets of Bollywood, political, social, local information/news throughout the trip which made the trip fun and fascinating. Spoke very good English.
At the dhobi ghaat, we stood over the bridge overlooking the dhobi ghaat. He gave us a run down on the process and how hard and meticulous the task is. We did not walk through the ghaats or meet any of the locals. It was probably a 15-30 min stop depending on how many questions we asked. It was very hot so the driver was kind enough to watch our snoozing toddler in the car while we stepped out to see the ghaats.
Next he took us to the local train station and got us all on to the train. I was a little worried about how we would do this with our almost 2 year old. But honestly it was no problem at all. She was in our arms the whole time. She seemed to love the train journey. It was around 11pm so the trains and stations were not as crowded.
We got off at Churchgate where Ajeet/Ajit walked us through the dabba vaala system. Fascinating.
Lastly Ajit and the driver drove us past Chatrapathi Shivaji Terminal station (let us get off quickly for a quick history lesson and pictures). Then they dropped off us off at an excellent Mumbai seafood restaurant at Kala Ghoda.
All in all the trip was great. Our driver too was courteous, polite, trustworthy.
The only thing I will mention...we did a couple of recommended tours. This one is definitely pricey compared to the others. I would definitely recommend it. But not sure 4 hours is worth the price we paid.
