Perfect tour for the whole family! Excel·lent City tour! Raj guide amaizing! And also the Driver A must in Bombai
Amazing city tour!
Paristour, Dec 2022
Sahil was amazing, knowledgeable, engaging, attentive and polite. He and our driver were extremely helpful and conscientious with a less mobile member of of our group. Sahil shared details throughout our journey and answered all questions we had. Would absolutely make this tour a priority for a trip to Mumbai! Top notch!

Ann_F, Nov 2022
Dear Viator Tour, I am quite disappointed from the tour - While the sites were well chosen and the driver trying his best - there was no guide, nor guiding information - I was literally dropped from one place to another - The tour was completed after 3 1/2 hours
Refund of the tour saved a NO-STAR rating
Amer_S, Nov 2022
I called international because the online site was having issues with my card. The operator (a Filipino lady) gave me some bad information regarding the pickup from the airport. Once I arrived, no one was there and the person from Magical Mumbai Tours was unprofessional, to say the least. He asked me to take an Uber to a pin drop he gave me 35 minutes away. When we got stuck in traffic, I asked him to cancel as it was already an hour late, upon which he made a comment that I'm canceling as the Uber driver may have given me a better rate. Then he also said this is Mumbai traffic so the driver was there half an hour after I reached the spot. Just a horrible start to the day. I called again the Viator support desk internationally and was put on hold for them to verify my story with a supervisor and offer me a refund. I was skeptical but they did refund me the money, therefore the three stars rather than none. The tour guide and the driver (Ravi and Naseer) were wonderful. The tour was pleasant but their supervisor (Samir Kamble???) kept calling them to drop me off soon and pick up another tourist. They changed the driver on me towards the last hour who was new and didn't know the Mumbai roads at all. The new driver started to make some bad turns and lost over 30-40 minutes of being stuck in traffic and with the pressure of Samir calling them every few minutes to check on their whereabouts even though he had access to their location. Extremely disappointed with the leadership of Magical Mumbai Tours. Thank you Viator for holding your end of the bargain and refunding me the tour price as that is probably the one good thing that came out of this horrible experience.
Marvellous Mumbai
Eamonn_S, Nov 2022
Sahil, our guide, was superb. Very knowledgeable and so engaging. We learned so much from him during the course of the tour
Where did our guide go?
Elsinore_A, Mar 2020
This trip was kind of strange. I think we were supposed to have a separate driver and guide, but we just had a driver. This made it difficult because often there's no parking near the site. So I think we skipped some sites because parking was too difficult. Also, it was a bit difficult to understand what the guide was saying since I am not sure he was proficient in English. Too bad. Could have been a nice tour. I was in communication with our guide, but then he disappeared for another tour. I don't even understand that.
Wonderful intro to Mumbai when time is limited
HENRY_H, Mar 2020
We had a wonderful time with our guide and driver (Sahil and Saddam). Due to a delay returning from Elephanta, from the very beginning, we 'forced' them off itinerary... to have lunch and then other diversions. They were incredibly accommodating to the changes we requested. The Dhobi Ghat children were off from school for the day. Samil engaged with them, and we had a delightful time hearing directly from theese children about their home and lives. It was the highlight of our entire time in Mumbai. Highly recommend this experience if your time is a bit limited - as ours was.

Superb Tour of Mumbai
Debra_G, Mar 2020
My friends and I had a superb tour of Mumbai! I booked the tour prior to the cruise we were taking. The process was efficient and easy. I was a little concerned having never before booked a tour online and knowing we would be on a cruise. But everything turned out perfectly. Our tour guide was Sahil who met us promptly at the port gate with a driver. Traffic in Mumbai is notorious and we were glad to have a very capable driver in addition to Sahil. The tour was very good given the time constraints and traffic conditions. Sahil was extremely knowledgeable and well spoken and we left feeling we knew a lot more about life in Mumbai and India. I strongly recommend this tour and company.
Fun, fun fun
Joann_C, Feb 2020
Fun fun fun and very well spoken for us to understand. Guide was very knowledgeable for us and was also willing to help with other excursions.

Fleeting Glance at a Fascinating Mumbai
Ravi_M, Feb 2020
The guide met me at the Taj lobby and drove me around in a clean air-conditioned taxi. He spoke good English, was pleasant and seemed trustworthy. He did provide brief explanations for the sights we visited but didn't accompany me inside the sights to explain anything further, which I didn't mind. The itinerary in the Viator advert listed 25 places to see and a duration of 5 hours. However, the guide was very keen on trying to finish the tour early (just about 3.5 hours in fact) having received a purported call from his manager, and I didn't see all 25 but about 15 sights, e.g. didn't go to Colaba Causeway. I didn't make a fuss as I really was not in the mood to argue and ruin my day.
Different layers of Mumbai
Lennart_K, Feb 2020
The tour was really good! Informative, yet compact (half a day) and budget-friendly. It allowed to explore different layers of Mumbai - from the immigrant laundry to the residence of the wealthiest man in India. And of course, the iconic sights like Central Railway Station or the Gandhi house were included. It gave a really nice compound picture of the city that one would not see when touring around on his own. Especially big thanks to my guide Yash! Fluent English and great professional knowledge.
Eye-opening and educational
Kim_W, Feb 2020
An eye-opening and educational tour with a fantastic tour guide who had a first hand experience of the slums. We are indebted to the people who opened their community for this opportunity. Individualised to suit our needs. Opportunity for a toilet/refreshment break at some stage in the tour before entering the slum would be my only suggestion for improvement.
Good day
redhavenstar, Feb 2020
The tour guide was very tactful, had a lot of information on the sites, and enjoyed it very much,,,,
Loving Mumbai

Our guide, Yash Kadam, made our experience in Mumbai extraordinary. He took us to the most important places with extensive explanations. We actually booked him for the Slum Tour the following day.
5 hour (supposedly) Mumbai sightseeing tour
riojajan, Jan 2020
Looking forward with anticipation to the tour we were extremely disappointed. The tour itself lasted a little over 3 hours and did not include the full promised itinerary. The guide(s) had limited communication skills and we felt the only real enthusiasm was when we were taken to venues were we would buy from favoured contacts. We were taken to a laundry but it transpired not the the huge and advertised one. The company “Magical Mumbai Tours” was a poor representation of what was expected.
See Mumbai like a local
vavalencia19, Jan 2020
Our tour guide was Sahil and our driver was Saddam. Both were great guides. They picked us up on time, gave us plenty of time at each location, took photos for us, and returned us to our hotel full of new knowledge about Mumbai. They even treated us to some amazing Mumbai tea! Learning about history, architecture, and functions of places was really cool. Favorite part: seeing the second largest outdoor laundromat. Sahil took us behind the scenes where shop keepers allowed us to go on their roof for an even better view and great photos. The market was cool to see and the fresh spices smelled amazing! We even brought a few home. What's really great is all the tour guides are students working to put money towards their education. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see some of what Mumbai has to offer.
Interesting Mumbai
Maciej_S, Jan 2020
Nice and competent guide and very skilful driver. Within 5 hours we have visited the most interesting places and we had also time for lunch in Leopold Caffe.
Magical Mumbai tours let me down - no stars
Barry_S, Jan 2020
Terrible experience. The tour provider, Magical Mumbai Tours, did not show up at time of booking. The local phone number I was given by Viator in the booking confirmation to call in case of problems did not work. Online chat facility for Viator I tried to use for help did not work. When after 30 minutes of attempts the telephone did connect, the Magical Mumbai tour provider was unhelpful and perfunctory. Claimed he had sent a message to inform me tour would start 2 1/2 hours late. When I explained I received no message and that the late time was inconvenient, he said he was cancelling the tour and hung up. When I reported this to Viator they made errors in their reply, said I they needed time to contact the tour provider, and did not promise to refund what I paid. I have used Viator many times over the years so was very disappointed. I ended up paying a high price for a last minute tour arranged by another provider, and wasted 2 hours trying to sort it all out.
