Our tour was great, we really got to see Dharavi and learn so much about the people and the place. A very special thanks to our guide Raj, he was amazing, my husband cut his head on the edge of a steel beam and needed to have stitches, Raj was so patient, he took us to the doctor, then to a small hospital clinic, he waited with us then we continued the tour! Raj took us to see his Mum who gave us a warm welcome and a lovely cup of chai. Thanks Raj, you were a great guide and we highly recommend this company -Reality Tours in Dharavi.

Swathi was our guide, she weaved a tale of the people of Dharavi, India, and her family as easily as she weaved us in and out of the alley ways of Dharavi. If you want to understand the migrations inside and outside of India, how the country, the people, and the economy work, and perhaps where some of your favourite Bombay snacks come from this tour is right up your alley so to speak.

It was my first time walking through a slum and it was truly an eye opener. The tour guide, Swathi, did a fabulous job by highlighting various aspects of the slum including its history, demographics, socio-economic characteristics and challenges. Her individual story being a female pursuing her dreams in an otherwise male-dominant society is touching. It was a morning very well spent!

This tour is amazing. It certainly gives you an insight into slum living. It is a very busy area of Mumbai with so many people living there. The tour was well organised and pickup went off without a hitch and Balji's level of English is excellent.

The success or failure of tours typically are based on the knowledge and the attitudes of the guides. Akash was extremely knowledgeable and excellent throughout and I couldn't recommend him highly enough. His engagement with the community and the respect he shows them really demonstrate how genuine of a person he is and how much he wants to help the community. He was kind enough to even wait with me at the end of the tour for my Uber to arrive even though it was scheduled to arrive in 15-20 mins.
