What people are saying about Architecture Tour in Mumbai
We were the only ones that booked this tour so we got a private tour with a driver and a guide. They picked us up right at the Green Gate at the exit of the port and the guide was holding a sign with our names. The name of our guide was Rameez, he was very friendly and knowledgeable. He gave us a lot of inside information and took us to a lot of different stops and allowed us the time we needed to look around and to make pictures. I would definitely recommend this tour! Enjoy Mumbai.
What a great experience!! The tour guide is a super caring person, he gave us plenty of time to take pictures and he is very knowledgeable that we have learnt about the history and the lifestyle of Mumbai. The driver has picked up us from hotel on time, comfortable car for 5 persons. Would highly recommend, definitely worth to try!! It’s very safe, great experience to take bus and train in Mumbai.
