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.
DINESH was my guide. It was the finest and most memorable tour I’ve ever taken. This tour guide deserves all the credit. He knows the ins and outs of the city and the temples. His timing was impeccable. We had no waiting. It was a really fun adventure with DINESH as expert and affable guide. I learned so much about the spiritual practices. The story of Ganesha and that temple. ... Lord Shiva. ...Unforgettable. The morning at the flower market. ... Krishna center ...I loved every minute. Bravo. This tour and its wonderful guide at the helm made my Mumbai stay worth the trip. Thank you so much.
The trip out to Lonavala was an amazing experience! I did the day trip from Mumbai, left at 9am and was back to the hotel around 6pm. The guide Allen was amazing, and took me to Bhaja Caves, and Lohgad Fort. The road was washed out on the way to the fort, so we did a bit of walking (over 5k). I would recommend to wear comfortable closes and shoes, and bring lots of water.
Our tour guide Nosh is good. He tells us history and stories of Mumbai. We went a lot of places for sightseeing, one of the most unique experience was taking the local train. He brought us to a famous restaurant for lunch and beer, which taste good. The tour, the guide and the driver are so nice, highly recommend to take this tour if you have short time staying in Mumbai.
The activity was well scheduled and the transport service was excellent. They picked us up even when our hotel was located North of Mumbai. They kept to the prescribed schedule and got us back at the hotel on-time. Our guide, Ganesh was knowledgeable and answered all of our queries. He also took us to a good restaurant for our lunch. Overall, he was very accommodating and we really had a great time! Highly recommended.
I went there alone with the tour guide, but i find it very safe. The ferry trip was very exciting you will see another face of Mumbai. The naval base was the best. We visited a lot of caves
