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.
Excellent tour and really an understanding for the residents of Dharavi and the industry they have developed within. You will not be disappointed by taking this tour.
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!
Amazing, interesting and educational. Great tour guide and a nice small group.
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.

It amazing tour and was very curious to see how people live in this place.our guide balagi was very interesting . we recommend this tour for every one .
Wasn't sure what to expect on this tour but it certainly opened our eyes and we are so glad we did this one. Our guide was knowledgeable and very friendly. While some of the sights that we saw were sad and I'm not sure how they cope with the living conditions the sense of community and the businesses that operate within the slums are very inspiring. This is definitely not a tour to be missed when in Mumbai.
This tour is a must for all visitors visiting Mumbai - it gives you such a good understanding how the slums work for the people - this also included a tour of Mumbai and viewing the biggest outdoor laundry this alone was fascinating - our guide was amazing as his knowledge and the information he passed on about these areas was fantastic
This is a tour for all ages as my mum is 86 and was able to cope with all areas!
Everything we hoped it would be. An excellent guide who gave us fascinating insight as to life in a Mumbai slum, along with much more.
Highly recommend this tour. Guide was informative, friendly and spoke good English. Tour was respectful of the people and places we visited and was a brief insight into the life and workings of Dharavi slum and the contribution made by the charity organising the tour. If anything it raises awareness and brings into focus your own thoughts about poverty and the ongoing existence of slums.
Advise the morning tour in the hotter months of the year and if meeting a Mahim Junction station then make sure you're standing outside where the tickets offices are located as we were standing at a smaller exit about 80 yards further along the platform.
Wow. What an eye opener. An amazing city within a city. Anyone who visits Mumbai, this is a must.
This is the only company that can take a tour through this area and any after tax profits go back into building and running schools and other programs for the children. DO THE TOUR.
An educational tour to show you the life in Dharavi. It worths your introspection that recycling industry are so comprehensive in a seemingly less favourable environment.
Really interesting tour,basically a city within a city!Manoj our guide new the place like the back of his hand!Not a slum as such but a thriving community and hive of industry.A must see.
This was an AMAZING tour !! I would give more stars if possible. I truly enjoyed this tour to Dharavi. Reality Tours is doing a great job giving part of the profits back to the community. Our tour guide Sunny was excellent and he speaks perfect English. He was very professional and he answered all our questions. It was an eye opener experience that totally changed my idea about the slum. It is like a city inside the city ! My only regret is that I didn't have time to take another tour with them, highly recommended !
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.
