Great tour with historical insight!

It's probably the best way to know the city. Must do activity even for people staying in Mumbai. Thanks to our Australian guest who wanted to walk around the city, we searched and found Raconteur Walks online. We spoke to Akash who did a great job of helping us set up the walk. He also gave us some discounts :)... More

We have lived in India for four years now, and during this time we have done many guided tours all over the country. The guides are often disappointing, mostly because they can not distinguish between facts and mythology. But with Raconteur you get qualified guides who actually know facts and history. We love that!

This was a great walking tour of heritage Mumbai. Viraat was incredibly knowledgeable about the history and architecture of the area, the role played by the British add Portuguese and those people who struggled for India's independence. I was so engrossed, I didn't even stop for photos! I would throughly recommend Raconteur for the depth of information and the friendly... More

Although from Indian standards it is slightly pricey but absolutely worth it. Learnt and saw more in 3 hours than most people. In fact we had a person who has been working in Mumbai for the past 2 year from Germany as well as a native mumbai person who were amazed at the level of knowledge from the guide.

I can't deny that spending 2 hours in a 1920's seabird sailing ship is a lovely way to spend Sunday afternoon in Mumbai. We were met at Jetty 5 (which is the one next to the Gateway not inside the barriers!) by a representative who handed us our complimentary water, snack bar and hat. I had booked with 2 friends...

This is the second tour I went on with Raconteur Walks Mumbai in January this year. This time I went on the bicycle tour with Nimish . I was met at on time at the Aram restaurant & take away by a colleague of Nimish who helped with the bike logistics. I then spent a delightful three hours in Nimish’s... More

We had 2 excellent raconteurs to take us around the Chruchgate area of Mumbai - and waht a lot of interesting stories they had to tell about people and places! The walk was at a pace to suit our group with plenty of time for photos and to take in the atmosphere. Highly recommended
