Customer Reviews


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

A uniquely Mumbai phenomenon, watching the army of Dabbawalas pouring out of Churchgate Station with their crates load with tiffin boxes for hungry office workers was one of the most amazing spectacles we’ve ever witnessed. It’s truly mind-blowing the order and accuracy in which the dabbawalas perform their jobs. When we were finished at Churchgate, we then hopped on the local train to Dhobi Ghat to watch the huge outdoor laundry facilities dating back to English rule. Another mind blowing site to see, there are thousands of families hand washing tons of uniforms, bedsheets, and more for customers all around Mumbai. Our guide did a great job of telling us not only about these two experiences, but about the history of Mumbai too.
