Balaji, our tour guide from Reality Tours, was fantastic. We are very happy to have taken this excursion because it changed our idea of the slums completely. It's a well-set up tour that shows various areas, businesses that operate from the slums, and their way of living. The car was air-conditioned. The guide was well-informed and very personable. We appreciated hearing his perspective on the growth and every day living of this city within the city.
This was an excellent experience. Our guide was knowledgeable, interesting, and personable. There and #39;s a lot to think about in this tour.
A fantastic morning. Well conducted and a real eye-opener. This tour taught me a lot about what living in a Mumbai slum is really like. Very educational and interesting. Recommend for all ages.
If you are Mumbai this tour is a must. I was unsure at first because I thought it might be disrespectful for people living in Dharavi but that couldn't be further from the reality. This is a very comprehensive tour seeing so many different sites in the slum- all of the different industries that are happening and a look into how people are living there. The people and particularly the kids along the way were so friendly. The tour guides who were young men were very passionate about showing Dharavi as a thriving community. The best part is that the tour company is investing back into the community, helping children and young people in a wide variety of ways.
Excellent tour guide
In Mumbai for just 12 hours, during the crazy days when the 500 and 1000 rupees were just declared non-legal tender, what did I do? Went on Tripadvisor and booked this tour through Viator. Best thing I did. The tour guide Rakesh was so friendly and gave us so much information with a flair for jokes. I was there with just one other girl travelling solo from Dublin. Dharavi is so vibrant and people of all stripes live there, from workers in a plastic recycling plant to tailors to bakers to potters to doctors, accountants and people in law enforcement. An absolutely can't miss experience, will not forget the smiles and 'hii!!!' s from all the smiling kids we passed on the way.
I loved it! It is an amazing place, which can we learn from. It is a a special place, inroduced in a special way. The guide was agreat young man, with loads of information to tell. Learning how to ride trains in India ... fun, fun, fun!
Great!! 5 tour.
Our tour leader made life more real to see the whole picture, not just the litter and hardships.
