    An interesting afternoon where I learnt about the city I call home
    A group of mix individuals were guided and told about the history of BMC by Juzer Tambawalla from Khakhi Tours. We got to walk around this heritage building and learn about how it came into being and so much more about the city. It was a great experience!

    Thank you for the interesting facts and photographs . Mr.Arun is a spirited person . He conducted the walk with enthusiasm and patience. Being a mumbaiya, I was ignorant about many aspects of our island city. This walk provided insights into what brought about the city which we all say "NEVER SLEEPS"

    A Great Piece of Architecture !!
    We took Khaki Tour to visit this beautiful heritage building. In spite of living in Mumbai we hardly knew anything about our heritage structure. It was built in 1897 by F. W. Stevens who also designed Victoria Terminus and Tajmahal Hotel. In front of the building is a bronze statue of Sir Phirozeshag Meta who drafted the 1872 Corporation Act. It is the richest corporation body in India and its annual budget is higher than many small states. Its interior is marvellous. Some of the floor tiles are 125 years old and still shining. The cantilever staircase similar to one at Taj Palace Hotel is worth seeing. The another great attraction was the top floor where we were told that some designs are gold plated. It's open for general public on Sundays. There is also a lift inside for senior citizens. Worth visiting...

    Khaki Tours - BMC
    The BMC heritage building is a magnificent piece of architecture. Thank you Khaki Tours especially Mr. Vasant for your valuable time in enlightening us about BMC and how it came into existence. Now we know how its not only looks on the inside but also what it took for it to be built. Thank you once again.

Today on 2nd July 2023 me and my family took the Urbs Prima tour which was arranged by Khaki Tours. Mr. Arun Sheth did an excellent job explaining the fine details of our BMC building, also sharing all the stories of how the Mumbai was formed. My tour experience was amazing. One should not miss an opportunity to witness the splendid architecture. I do look forward to taking some other tour with Khaki tours. Thanks a lot to Mr. Arun and team for making our day.

Had a great tour of the 'Urbs Prima walk of the BMC headquarters' in Mumbai. The history and the intricacies of the architecture was very well explained by our host Rohan. The whole experience conducted by Khaki tours Pvt Ltd was super and will definitely join for many more!

This was my very first walk with Khaki Tours - the Urbs Prima walk of BMC. Rishabh is an excellent guide. Good knowledge combined with in depth research, and communicating the same with our group. The BMC HQ is a heritage institution, and we know so little about our structures and monuments. It's only through these walks that we actually know what has happened in the last 128 years and how this institution came about....what a wealth of knowledge to be gained. My first walk, but definitely not my last. Thank you Khaki Tours, for providing us with this wonderful opportunity. It is an afternoon well spent.

I saw many people having their photos taken while using the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation building as background. The building also know as the Bombay Municipal Corp. building has more grandeur than the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (train station) across the road.
