Our brilliant tour guide Dev grew up in a slum. He was extremely knowledgeable and articulate answering all our questions about life in Mumbai. The atmosphere in the slum was one of hard work, community and family. An example to us all.

We really enjoyed our time with Mukesh, our driver, who was always very enthusiastic. He clearly enjoys his work! Unfortunately, most of the Mumbai attractions were closed due to the Corona Virus restrictions, but Mukesh helped us to make the best of our time in Mumbai. We will definitely be back and will have no hesitation is using the services of Mystical Mumbai and Mukesh again.

I arranged this tour in advance of our cruise through Shailesh (shailesh@mysticalmumbai.com) He was absolutely wonderful to work with, answering all of my emails promptly and corresponding with me via many emails to make everything perfect and include all of the sites we wanted to see. On Monday, May 6, 2019, when our cruise ship docked, we met our tour guide, Dev at the port. He was amazing—very energetic, knowledgeable, and extremely passionate about his job. He also spoke perfect English. Dev told us that this company, Mystical Mumbai Tours, was founded by a man who had lived in the Dharavi Slums and all of the tour guides that he hired had also lived there, so they were sharing their lives with us through this tour. We felt so privileged to have a tour given by a local who had so much passion for Mumbai in general and for the Dharavi slums in particular. On the way to Dharavi, he gave us lots of history + social and economic background on Mumbai. As he led us through the alleyways of the slum, he pointed out that the real poor of Mumbai live on the streets, rather than in the slum. There are 10,000 industries operating within Dharavi. One slum business recycles 88% of all the plastic in Mumbai and the slums rank #2 in India for leather production. It was amazing to see the variety of businesses there—from luggage construction, to food preparation, to bakeries (who supply most of Mumbai), to clothing and leather-goods manufacturing, to barber shops, and much more. Dev emphasized the “community” that exists here, despite the difficult conditions. We caught glimpses of families in one-room houses as we passed, and children came to greet us—fascinated by the “Westerners.” The farther into the slum we got, the narrower the alleyways and the more dwellings were packed into the tiny spaces. Dev pointed out the shortage of toilets—1200 people must share one common facility. We finally came out of the maze onto a playground/sport field and saw children playing. We visited a leather goods shop that makes bags for many name designers, where I was able to purchase a bag. We were amazed by the dichotomy of slum life vs business life here. As we left the slum, we passed the river which was totally polluted with trash, and found the local market street with shops, food stalls, and goats wandering along. Our amazing driver, navigating the unbelievable traffic, managed to pick us up on the corner so we could continue our adventure. The air-conditioning in the car felt fantastic! Next stop—Dhobi Ghat—the incredible outdoor laundry where 3000 workers do 200,000 pieces of laundry each day. Dev also told us about the Dabbawalas who provide a delivery network between family homes (where the lunches are prepared) and offices (where family members consume the lunches). Our tour continued with the beautiful scenery of the Hanging Gardens above the city and then the home of Mahatma Ghandi, which we toured. Next was the famous Gateway of India and then the Sasoon Fishing Dock (where we saw women sitting on the floor sorting shrimp into baskets, while cats and birds feasted on the leftovers, and children played). Finally, we stopped in front of the famous Victoria Train Station (Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminal) to take pictures of this architectural marvel, before Dev and the driver returned us to the port. We couldn’t believe that we were able to see so much—and to learn so much about Mumbai and its people--in such a short time. This was, truly, one of the best tours we’ve had anywhere in the world. Thanks to Dev, to our driver, and to Shailesh for making our day in Mumbai one we will never forget!

Definitely the part that we enjoyed the most was seeing the Dharavi.
Not only to see the neighborhood, also the people in there was so nice.
We got to play with some kids and it was fantastic.

The organization was perfect and the guide was very friendly.

The tour provides a very good overview over the main to tourist attractions of Mumbai (among others including Gateway of India, Vicoria terminus, Dobi Ghat, Hanging Gardens and one of Mahatma Gandhis former homes). Depending on the overall traffic situation, stays at some of the sites can be rather short or limited to just driving by. If you want to explore more, you should come back on your own afterwards.

After being picked up at our hotel by a driver, the tour started with a very insightful visit to Dharavi slum. Our guide Nikesh, who is a local there and did a great job, showed us examples of the local economy (including recycling factories and leather production facilities).

My partner and I were picked up from our hotel by our guide, Raj, and the driver, Mukesh. We wanted to see the Dharavi slum and the city tour. We decided to cut out some of the places we would definitely see later in the week. Over the course of about 41/2 hours (which was all we decided we could manage) Raj and Mukesh managed to fit in a very comprehensive overview of this incredible city - the noise and color and smells - such a rich experience.

I met Shailesh and his team of tour guides as part of a business trip in Mumbai. They were knowledgeable, professional and friendly, providing a wealth of information about Mumbai over the course of the week. They managed to find a good balance between sharing information and tailoring the tour to the needs of the group, answering questions and ensuring that everybody was well looked after.

I was so impressed that I arranged to go on an individual tour with them in the few days after the business part of the trip had finished. They invited me to visit the Dharavi slum and I was so glad that I did. I had been apprehensive in advance, concerned that the visit would feel voyeuristic. That was not the case. They were keen to dispel myths and I was willing to learn. It was an eye-opening experience and an important moment in my life.

Dev, Rakesh and Raj were all excellent. This is a first-class outfit and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you for such a memorable trip.

1) was a great experience to the Slums ( you can have this as a 5 hour tour without the slums, but would be a big miss)
2) takes longer than 6 hours ( especially with the driving)
3) laundry place, Ghandi’s house, Gateway to India , Gardens.... etc...
4) Slums: not very clean and difficult trip. (But has to be seen)
5) Slums were Safe! (Relatively if course...We never thought there was any danger..)
6) 4-5$ made in a 12 hour work day! And people were positive. ( we had 2 friends and a 15 year old and it was an experience for all of us, especially fir the teenager)
7) car pickup from the hotel, 5 additional people can fit ( we were 4) nit a big car, but was air conditioned etc.
8) we had another trip to the elephants islands scheduled the next day and we couldn’t go, and the owner was very nuce and reimbursed the money ( it was less than the 24 hour cancellation period)
9) not an easy trip, but a must....Strongly recommended!
