A very eye opening tour. The slum is huge and functions as any city yet with limited access to normal resources. It was remarkable the infrastructure which was present through out this city within Mumbai. Definately do this tour if you want to experience a striking reality of Mumbai. I suggest closed shoes as the paths through the slum can be a bit dirty. Be prepared to also go in very dark alleys and climb precarious stairs with in the plastics recycling factory.

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!
