    Quite simply an outstanding tour - and full credit to our guide Ganesh who conducted the tour with due respect for the local community. He was informative and engaging, presenting some thought provoking insights into many dimensions of the social, economic and political situation. Thoroughly recommended tour for those trying to understand Mumbai at ‘street’ level.

    Tour guide Ganesh introduced the main area of the slum, showing how the people living in slum to earn their living by recycling plastic, leather, soap, etc.. Strongly suggest a tour to the Slum when you visit Mumbai and have a look how the real and original Mumbai looks like!
  • John Brian 18 Sep 2018
    Had the most amazing, eye-opening experience at Dharavi Slum. My guide Dinesh was knowledgeable and spoke very well. He explained to me in detail the inner workings of the slum from a local's perspective, so you come away from the experience with perhaps a different viewpoint from what you had coming in. Highly recommended tour and a must-do in Mumbai in my opinion.
  • Jonathan 22 Aug 2018

  • Eleanor 13 Oct 2017
    Great tour, not many reviews so was a bit skeptical about booking but was worth it. Amaze Mumbai tours look on trip advisor
