What To Expect

This tour will show you another side of Mumbai, giving you a glimpse into everyday life within Dharavi slum and to see the famous Dhobi Ghat. The day begins with either a hotel pick up or a meet up with your guide (depending on package selected) and your tour officially begins outside the Cafe Coffee Day opposite of Mahim West Station. Your English speaking guide will take you to Dharavi Slum, known as the second largest slum in Asia and the third largest in the world. You've be able to walk through the streets and see the locals doing their every day work, and find that this slum area is actually a thrumming beehive of small scale industries in various fields. The locals are friendly and will readily show you their work or the products that they create in these streets; you might even see children playing at the balconies. This is an opportunity to learn about the local industries, such as metalwork, pottery, textiles, the local recycling process and more. There's even a glimpse into the thriving papad industry, as the locals of Dharavi create these delicious, crispy discs. Afterward you head to Mahim West Station, and board a train that takes you to Dhobi Ghat. This open air laundromat is famous not just within India, but all over the world. Rows and rows of wash pads await you, and locals work hard to do laundry here, washing clothes and linens from hospitals and hotels. Your tour ends here, and you head back to your hotel with a new perspective on life in Mumbai.
