It’s often said that it’s the kitchen that carries the weight of a culture on its shoulders.... I think once you sign up for this wonderful walk by No Footprints into the world of Kolis - the original residents of the Mumbai city, you will realise that why this fishermen community thriving in the hidden quarters of Mumbai is so much more and continues to carry the weight of making Mumbai the largest Fisheries sector. Do take this walk to experience zest, vibrancy and fearfulness of the lovely people. Learn about why Artisnal Fishing is the need of the hour and many more hidden stories including Why do we call it the Bombay Duck (read Daak). We had a great time signing up for this on a super Sunday morning.

Whenever i used to zip through the Bandra Worli Sealink, i used to look left and observe and be curious about the inhabitants of the settlement left that jutted in the middle of the sea. Finally through NFPExplore, Harsh's company my daughter and i signed up for an early morning 7 30 am walk through the Worli Village. The village traditional Koli inhabitants are among the original inhabitants of Mumbai and we began the walk at the temple. The next stop was a mosque which which a koli family has care for six generations.. The narrow bylanes were clean, well maintained even thought the homes were cheek a jowl. Harsh kept sharing nuggets, trivia, engaging stories and myths..Learnt about Artisanal tradition of fishing, and before the Worli fort we stopped at the Koli cemetry. The Worli fort has seen the Portuguese, Marathas and the British plant their presence and flag. Harsh pitched in with a surprise act of a local Koli village rap star singing a rap in Koli lyrics. Sharing the customs of community marriage and the village coming together for social ocassions. On a more sombre note shared the impact of the bridge on the livelihood of the fisherfolk and demise of deep sea fishing close to the village. Absolute insightful and layered is Harsh's and NFPexplore speciality. Must

Beautiful and quaint Worli village made super interesting by No Footprints. Its a side to Mumbai one doesnt see usually. Loved the fact that they informed about sustainable fishing being need of the hour and how unplanned development in the city can affect life of indigenous people.

Highly recommend!

I found out a ton of things about Worli Koliwada that I for sure wouldn't have discovered otherwise. The goddess and her unique pellet-fortune telling, the mosque and the annual possession were some of the ones that stuck! The guys know their stuff and it's a fun way to go deep into a spot you have for the most part overlooked if you live in Bombay. A hard recommend!

Adi took us around Worli. He explained the history and the nuances of the society that live there, the challenges that they are facing and how they support one another. Adi has a great sense of humour and adventure and wonderful empathy with people. We visited a temple and were gifted bananas by the priest. We spoke to local people at the fish market including a group picture with the Koli ladies that run the show. We visited the fort which has been turned into a gym that helps youngsters by giving them a training regime. We spoke to the son of the guy that started the gym. Super interesting. The site is used as a location for Bollywood films.

Thanks No Footprint for our second great tour. Shout out to KP for our first tour. Feedback given separately.

5*s all round.

This tour by Adi, Rahul and Harsh (No Footprints ) was amazing. I learnt so much about the community of which I am a part, and a community that is crucial to my city's livelihood. Adi was an energetic tour guide and clearly knew the place and locals well. The whole experience was very inclusive, welcoming and warm, and the best part is that they have clearly done their research. All statements came from facts backed either by dates and books, or by the locals themselves. Different beliefs and practices are respected. I had a blast. Looking forward to more.

An absolutely unique experience. I couldn’t recommend it enough. The village is full of colours, temples, superstition, folk tales and unique traditions. Really something you do not get to see anywhere else in the world. Adi, our cheerful guide greeted literally everyone we met on the streets, which resulted in people greeting us back, smiling and happily posing for photos. Being raised in South Bombay, he had a LOT of information to share.

I have lived in the area during my childhood but I never knew so much about the area that I live in after doing one of their tours. After many years of living outside the country to get back and know so much about the place that i spent my childhood in feels like a breath of fresh air. Harsh was our guide and we got some deep in depth walk through on so many aspects of life in the Worli Village - culture, history, traditions, how the many fabrics of religion are intertwined in this small community and finally - food! We also got to see a live demo of how prawn curry is made which is fabulous

We did the Worli Village Walk yesterday which was a lot of fun. It's refreshing to see that the Kolis, the original people of Mumbai, have preserved their traditions and heritage over time. We saw a Goddess who answers questions, bonhomie between various religions, the Worli Fort, conversations about sustainable fishing, all of which made the tour an enriching experience. Adi was a friendly and engaging guide with lots of interesting information and trivia. We would definitely book another tour with No Footprints. Kudos!
