Independently this is a great place to visit. As a tour you often just stop on the road and look down, which is disappointing.

I saw the most beautiful small round colorful Rajasthan draw string purses being sold there by locals on the bridge overlooking Dhobi Ghat.

I went with tour, inside there are residential part and business part, which I didn't expect. There are in fact a lot of people working there, plastic, snacks, bags, etc... It's def unforgetable place I ever visited in the world.
