Very good look at Mumbai, which is so huge you could never see all of it... Really enjoyed my driver and guide, safe, knowledgeable, good communication skills and a real ability to talk about and show what I was interested in during the tour.

The tour was good and my English speaking lady guide was great as was my driver. BUT i wascharged 132.50 on my credit card instead of the quoted 33 on the website. Every one I speak to heresays its no my problem, so it would begood if someone could check and get back to me insteadof passing the buck. Thanks.

Our tour guide was great...very knowledgeable and funny. Since we booked two tours, the company did decide (without consulting us) to changed our schedule around, which was a little frustrating as it left us with a few hours to kill where we weren't able to go out and do anything due to evening plans (since we didn't find out until the day of). They thought it was in the best interest of the flow of the two tours, and I would have been a lot more open to it if they would have informed us ahead of time. It made me keep questioning if we really were getting the full tours our if we lost 2 hours of the experience somewhere. Nice people, though.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better January 2015

Interesting tour of South Mumbai. Good booking experience ....absolutely hassle free.
The problems started when I had to deal with India office where I had to do a lot of follow up for pickup etc.
(Still better than some some of the local companies I must say)
The guide (Murli) spoke very loudly, did not have any interesting information ( and at times it was incorrect) and argued every time whenever any of us had a different view point or information. He would get very loud to support his point of view and his entire focus was on trying to impress my Jamaican brother-in-law with his knowledge of cricket !! In the process he missed pointing out quite a few landmarks such as Rajabai clock tower which is modelled on Big Ben, etc. The driver/coordinator (Sandeep) was more polite and better informed than the guide.
