I joined this tour and the guide was Sagar, who is a student and lives in Dharavi. Sagar started the tour with a quick explanation of the itinerary and aims of the tour. I thought Sagar was, knowledgeable, informative, spoke excellent English and polite, and the tour interesting. The most interesting thing was that the word slum is perhaps a misnomer. The Dharavi Slum is really just like most of India, just more densely populated, and almost like a self enclosed community with shops, markets, textile, recycling and pottery industries.

Overall, I really enjoyed the tour and got a little glimpse of India I don’t usually see. When I see how hard people in Dharavi work, it makes me grateful for everything my country has given me.

Over two days we enjoyed fabulous tours of 1) Mumbai’s Dharavi slum, 2) city highlights and 3) the Elephanta Caves.
Kamlesh is in love with Mumbai and it shows. He only hires guides who share his passion for Bombay and enthusiasm for 1st class visitor experiences. Expect excellence and you won’t be disappointed.

Vishal was an excellent, knowledgable guide who explained how life went on in the slum area where grew up and still lived. He spoke excellent English and treated us to the real tea of India, a special slightly spicy with ginger version of chai - delicious. I thoroughly recommend this tour

We had the good fortune of using the services of this young company to do our tou4 of the slum area known as Dharavi.
We were met by Sagar and Mahesh .
These 2 youngsters both live in the Slum area themselves and were very knowledgeable of the area and the cultures of the residents and business people that inhabit the slum area .
We felt completely safe in the area and were amazed at the slum itself .

Without giving away too much details or information of the slum area itself , i highly recommend visitors to mumbai to do the slum tour and if pisdible try to do it with this company .

Truly professional in their delivery of the service .

Rahul is the main organiser ,he is helped by a team of 7 highly intelligent youngsters .

Totally eye opening experience .

Well worth the money !

We really enjoyed the slum tour! It was good to get to know about the life in slums and walk around the area. Vishal is a great guide and was happy to answer our questions. It’s also good to know that they support some educational program through profits from the tours so that people in area can learn new skills. They have a classroom for the projects.
Overall it was an unique and colourful experience to get to know a bit more about slum life- recommend as a must if visiting Mumbai.

Vishal also kindly offered us some chai which was delicious! Thanks! :)

Our tour started well and ended beyond our expectations. Extremely interesting and our guide had a deep knowledge of both the commercial and residential side of the slums. Like everyone we are keen to take photos but apprehensive in this environment however our guide encouraged us to take pictures in a sensitive manner. The highlight was an invitation back to our guides house to meet his family we were extremely honoured. Thank you so much from Scott and Margita.

We did a group tour with Vishal. The most important thing to highlight is that he was very professional, meeting international standards of guiding. He was punctual, accommodated our time (morning coffee at the meeting place) and walking pace. The guiding had a very good structure and elaboration with factual basis and was delivered in perfect English. There was not a single dead moment and even though we imagined that 2 hours is too little, we were surprised how well the tour was filled with explanations, sights, stories, photo moments and hands on activities (e.g. pottery). We also felt very safe in the places we visited, both because the nature of those places was well chosen, as well as the accommodating nature of our guide.

Since this is India, where a lot of guiding is of poor quality and you get non stop pressured to do this or that, it's important to also highlight that we were not pushed in any way to buy something or tip someone and we had proper visibility of what's going on and the freedom to do what we consider appropriate.

The guiding focused on the two areas of the Dharavi slum, one on the working part and one on the residential part with additional pottery home industry in the vicinity. It included photo sessions, access to local industries and slum life (e.g. barber shop, cooking).

Points to improve:
a) Some of the statistics data used in the presentation was inconsistent (e.g. number of people in the slum, estimated turnover, density of the slum, surface of the slum). This kind of information may not mean much to most visitors, but they add appreciation from people who are used to numbers and can appreciate such details.

b) The money information provided (e.g. rental costs) was confusing due to the incorrect translation of lakh and crore into international numbers. We didn't insist on this, but it's good to review this point with all your guides. This is a common issue in India.

We very much enjoyed our tour with Rahul. He was friendly, well-informed and speaks excellent English. He unlocked a side of Mumbai we wouldn't have been able to experience on our own. Highly recommended.
