          Great food tour
          Really great tour. There were quite a few variations on bread and potatoes. I think if one of the bread and potato options was swapped out for something different, the tour would have been perfect. Our guide Arina was amazing. She gave us some excellent recommendations for the rest of our stay in Mumbai and we learnt a lot from her as well.

          Mr. Meherban Irani was delightful company and knowledgeable. We took the tour because we had just moved to Mumbai and this tour is a fine introduction to the rich and inspiring history of Mumbai

          Highly recommend!! This tour will show you the real Mumbai, in a way you could never imagine !!
          I’m a local from Mumbai but living in France for the past 7 years. This time I was back home visiting with my French boyfriend and I wanted to show him around our insane city that is Mumbai! Luckily I found this tour online and immediately knew it was the perfect way to get him to see how the city wakes up and the hustle begins! Although I hardly knew HOW cool the experience would turn out to be. Thanks to no footprints and especially our amazing guide Adi, we were able to see Mumbai through a lens that even locals haven’t experienced. We started off the tour early at 5am, a private driver coming to pick us up at our hotel. The first spot was the fishing docks, the most insane experience you’ll ever live. Then we went through other spots like the newspaper sorting center, fruit and veggie market ending up in the flower market. This tour showed us the duality of Mumbai : how traditional ways blend into a modern economy. We saw the back end workings of Mumbai that would normally be invisible for tourists and that’s what makes this tour so great, it shows you what you won’t usually have the chance to see. Our guide Adi was really exceptional too. At each spot he provided clear details and precious pieces of information all whilst guiding us and ensuring that we felt comfortable walking through the crowds. He even took several pictures videos for us. He then went the extra mile and sent us additional information by message on questions that we had asked. He’s just the best, and this tour is a definite must do when in Mumbai (even if you’re a local ;)) highly recommend!!!

          Great time, food!
          Arina was our guide and she was awesome. We got to try tons of food and she told us a lot about the history of Mumbai and different cultures which attributed to all of the variety of different types of foods that we got to try. I would definitely recommend her and her company. We had a great time and learned lots and we definitely full by the time we were done.

          Mumbai Dawn
          A truly wonderful guided tour with Meherban Irani and excellent driver to the Dawn Markets of Mumbai. We experienced such amazing sights and sounds at the harbour fish market, flower and fruit markets accompanied by such interesting and informative comments by Meherban who is clearly a very knowledgable and engaging guide. We didn't expect to taste, fruits and see flowers being prepared for market and have a jasmine bracelet made. In addition we got an insight into the history of trade in the city and its people. A diverse and fascinating tour, highly recommended!

          Fantastic food tour in Mumbai
          We had a fantastic food tour with Namrata! Everything we tried was so delicious, there was so much variety, and so much food. Namrata made sure that the venues were safe. We saw a lot of the city and the pick up at the hotel was perfect. Thank you for a great evening!

          Wonderfully raw early morning experience
          Adi was absolutely great! Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Experiencing the key markets of Mumbai is an essential trip and an experience you’ll never forget. I really suffer from the heat, so a whistle stop walk round different locations with an air-conditioned Taxi to jump into between stops was ideal! We started off at Sassoon Dock just before dawn, piles of Bombay duck and shrimp, Indian salmon and even manta rays, the smell of the fresh fish was amazing, the smell of the drying fish close by was not so amazing! We then travelled through various other markets around the city as we worked from the south to the north, making carefully curated walks along the way. The traffic wasn’t too bad so we made good time and even had a chance to visit a large cricket ground, where there were some impressive skills on display in addition to a fine young lady and gentlemen that gave amazing displays of strength and stamina climbing a pole and doing incredible feats on a rope! Apologies I have forgotten the name of the discipline. My driver stopped at a viewing point for the suspension bridge. Thank you Adi for a wonderful experience that I will never forget.

          Phenomenal Mumbai by Dawn Tour
          Nimisha is an excellent guide! She is knowledgeable, easy-going and enjoyable to be around. I’m a young woman and was travelling solo in Mumbai. She gave me great tips for and also recommendations for the rest of my travels. Anyone would enjoy seeing Mumbai with Nimisha as a solo traveler or as a group booking.

          Excellent eating tour in Mumbai with Arina
          We arrived in Mumbai that morning & wanted a tour that collected us from the hotel so we didn’t have to arrange transportation to a starting point being unfamiliar with the city. Arina was in reception before our arrival time. Excellent communication before we met. Our driver arrived shortly afterwards. Arina explains this is a carb heavy tour of the local street foods & we could share it between us & not feel obliged to eat it all as we would be trying about 10 different dish’s. Arina went above and beyond explaining everything we needed to know. Took us to many different locations to try different foods. Explaining everything as we went as she is passionate about food. Arina also gave us lots of information to help us with our onward journey through India & has kept in touch after our tour. We couldn’t recommend Arina enough. Excellent tour, excellent guide. We can’t recommend Arina enough. Her English is excellent. Thank you

          Amazing trip with Batul to the fish market and flower market
          The fish market at dawn is quite an experience - busy, noisy, full of color and life. And a little smelly! From there to the flower market via newspaper sorting and the public laundry was an incredible insight into the workings of Mumbai. Batul is a wonderful guide, very informative and a lovely person to spend a few hours with early on the morning. Definitely worth doing.

          Fascinating visit to the Spice Market with Batul
          Really interesting visit to the Spice Market with Batul, who was so knowledgeable about the uses of the various spices and the practices of choosing, buying, roasting and grinding the spices for each family. A great experience.

          Amazing Morning Trip in Mumbai. You have to go if you have time. Never thought the fish market was this intense. My favorite was the flower market with rows of Mary Golds.

        The entire tour was so much fun! Educational yet also engaging and interesting - Tvishi from No Footprints sandwiched history, geography, and politics between pop culture trivia and jokes to ensure we pay rapt attention! It was eye opening, because I haven't visited having lived in this city for almost 3 decades. Lots to learn, pet many cute cats, saw beautiful plants, interacted with warm locals, would definitely recommend this! It's worth getting up early for and is something everybody can do - it's not too tiring or inaccessible in that sense. Glad I went!

        It was a beautiful walk and it made me aware of a wonderful place existing in this city centre which has enriching History pertaining to diverse cultural origins and homes of freedom fighters involved in India’s freedom movement , vintage homes and warm residents who have been living here for generations. The Christmas decorations were very subtly placed and highlighted the beauty of this historical area.

        Being led by Adi through the alleys of Matharpqcady, I was reminded of how special my home city of Mumbai is. And that so much is still left to explore — of it and its history!

        Can’t wait to do more trips with No Footprints.

        A forgotten era revisited due to the efforts by No Footprints. Would highly recommend this walking heritage tour for those who want to explore the lesser known history of Mumbai and its East Indian/ Catholic Community.
        The tour was really fantastic and our tour leader Aditya Pai did a fabulous job of covering all the big and small details of this wonderful heritage place- Matharpacady

        It was a pleasant experience knowing about the community and the history of that place. The location is really interesting. The heritage building and the stories that grow behind them are equally amazing. The walk was really informative, fun filled and i believe it has something for everybody, if anyone is interested in knowing about the heritage past, that the history books don't often talk about.
