I joined the Mumbai Local tour and my guide that day was Divya.
We spent about 4 hours walking around the city and exploring it like a local, taking as well no AC taxis, train and a bus. I appreciated the fact that we used local transportation to move around. It’s an adventure in itself!

Divya is a very knowledgeable guide, she explained me so much about Mumbai history and she told me all the most interesting stories. She’s a fun company a well and she introduced me to the most delicious Mumbai snacks!

I had already visited Mumbai in the past, but it was only with this tour that I finally really got to know the city.
I totally recommend this tour, as an introduction to the city and the history and culture of Mumbai!

Our guide met us near the Gateway to India as agreed but as it was Republic day and the area was full of people that was no mean feat. Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided us with full details of everywhere we went and a lot more besides. The first part of the trip was to walk around the fabulous buildings from the era of British rule before ending up near the Oval where many cricket matches were taking place. watching them whilst waiting for a bus was an added bonus. The bus trip was just as we imagined with standing room only and it took us along the Marine Drive before turning inland and dropping us at the Gandhi museum where we had some free time. A short taxi drive later and we were taken to a lovely eating house where snacks were sold and we were treated to two different Indian snacks which were really tasty and included in the price of the trip. Next after a short taxi ride we viewed the outdoor laundry and got its full detail - history and social issues. The final element was a train ride back to the Victoria Terminus - just as we imagined. Passengers hanging out of the doors - a typical Indian train ride. Fellow cruisers had also been on a train, but in the first class air conditioned carriages and all wished that they had experienced the trip that we had and we had paid only a fraction of the price.

I cannot rate the trip from Mumbai Magic highly enough. Truly magical.

Me and three friends needed a last minute activity for our one day in Mumbai after another separate tour fell through (we mistakenly agreed previously to go on a hop on/hop off tour with a cab driver with a very heavy accent and no AC and decided to pivot asap). After some quick online research, I decided to reach out to Mumbai Magic and they saved the day! They were very quick to respond and were able to accommodate us very last minute - I called them around 12:30pm for a 2pm tour time the same day and they made it happen! The guide Mani and another woman who I believe was shadowing her met us near the Gateway and we were so relieved to meet a guide so friendly and excited to show us around. A college student living and studying in Mumbai, Mani was very easy to talk to and showed such fun enthusiasm and deep knowledge of her city. We saw some some very interesting sights in a short period of time, stopped by a DELICIOUS street snack shop, and experienced taking the bus and train like a local! I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a day tour in Mumbai. Thanks Mani and Mumbai Magic!

I loved this tour as it is very well organised and you can in around 4 hours experience a fully deep discovering of how local people move around in the centre of the city and see the main spots around. I did it alone with my guide Amruta. She was great, fun and with a great knowledge about the tour itself and the history. It is indeed a very good tour to get the essentials and more from this fascinating city. I took the time to ask Amruta about several things and she always gave me s great answer. During the trip itself, apart from visiting some of the must to see places, you experience too the different means of transportation the locals do.

My experience with Magic Tours was excellent, from start to finish. Very shortly after I sent my initial inquiry, I received a response and very clear information about what my options were for making the most of my 13 hour layover in Mumbai. The contacts I worked with at Mumbai Magic were very communicative and helpful, and within a day I had everything planned out and booked!

I hardly had to put in any effort - I just had to show up at the Mumbai airport! All the arrangements were made for me and everything went seamlessly. The driver and guide were both wonderful, and I felt very well taken care of. I loved how flexible the day was - since I selected a private tour, I was in control of a lot of the decisions (e.g. if I wanted to skip something, was hungry for a snack, wanted to spend longer at one place, etc.).

I would highly recommend Magic Tours to anyone visiting India and feeling overwhelmed by figuring out where to go, what to see, how to get there. I got a truly authentic look at the "real" Mumbai, which I could have never figured out how to do on my own, and the level of service I received was well worth the (very affordable) price of the tour!

Thank you Mumbai Magic for making my 13 hours in Bombay a fantastic experience!!

We did the 'local tour' with Manisha in February and had a great afternoon with her. Manisha is really professional and the tour is well planned. We saw the main tourist attractions and got many background information from Manisha. One of our highlights was the restaurant where she took us (we can recommend you to let her choose the dishes - it was all delicious). Thank you for the wonderful tour, Manisha!

I booked this tour on the recommendation of a friend who used the company previously.

Communication was excellent. We were able to book a personalised itinerary to our group which also included a short train ride in Mumbai.

We were collected from the cruise port and our guide was extremely knowledgable. She spoke very good English and was also flexible throughout the day when we wanted to change our plans slightly.

Transport was good and cold
Water provided throughout the day.

Many thanks to Priyanka and your colleagues, you made our visit to Mumbai very memorable.

Sidhesh was an amazing tour guide! We had so much fun on this tour. Sidhesh took us through all the main architectural attractions, but then showed us some really neat stops as well including a field with over 50 games of cricket being played. We loved taking the local transportation. The “snacks” portion was truly a meal, and I wish we’d had a smaller breakfast so we could have had more food on the tour. Sidhesh also had great tips and conversation throughout the day, and so we learned a lot about Mumbai life through him. He then gave us a bunch of recommendations for other things to do in the city, all of which were awesome. Regarding price, I usually vacation in China and Southeast Asia, so typically pay less for tours (things are just cheaper there), but this was so worth the price! Would absolutely do it again. Thank you for making our first day in India amazing!

We joined this tour which had been booked by another person. The best thing about it was the guides! We had two "pros" and two trainees with us. The trainees were really quiet and shy, but Siddesh and Atul Shendge were amazing! They are young and enthusiastic, and we felt like we were being shown the city by friends. We loved that we took a variety of transport -- walking, minibus, taxis, and even the train. I'd definitely recommend these guys.
