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.

It wildly exceeded my expectations. Rajesh was from Dharavi and lived there most of his life. He did not sentimentalize slum life nor did he concentrate on the negative plights of the residents. meeting him is easily a highlight of my trip. And 80% of the profit goes back into education programs
