I was a small group of 1 and tha suited me just fine! Snub was friendly, flexible, knowledgeable and just fun. Didn't realize it was a walking/ cabbing outing but that made it all the easier t veer off th agenda when desired. His is a wnderfyl it er early for the cultural curious. Mumbai shows best at a leisurely pace and this one goes just how you like it.

This was a wonderful tour and well worth the time. Sana Jinah, my guide, was excellent. Her English was very good and she knew a great deal about the places we visited. She was attentive to what I wanted to do and to the questions I asked. Overall, a great day in Mumbai.

My guide was Sana and I would recommend her and the tour to anyone visiting Mumbai. She is knowledgeable, funny, and confident, and an excellent person to help with navigating a chaotic city. Her calm confidence made me feel comfortable experiencing Mumbai on my own. She tailored the tour to my interests and clearly knows a lot about the city and how to guide people.

Like many of the other reviews, I cannot praise Pravar to highly, he met me outside McDonald's across from Chatrapti Shivaji Station and then after talking to me suggested if it was not to warm for me that we do a walking tour of the centre of Bombay. This was good for me because I was able to so small insights to the Fort District i would have missed if we had used taxis. We also used taxis to get to other parts of the city and then as a treat Pravar was heading out to Bandra and as my Hotel was up by the Airport at Vile Parle a ride on a Western Line Bombay train was done. When I return to Bombay sometime in the future I will be asking for Pravar for an evening tour of the Bandra District.
