We did the Dharavi Slum Tour in the evening with a very small group. Our guide Rakeesh was exceptional! He explained the industry, the private life and historical facts in detail and also was able to answer almost every other question we had.
Amazing experience!

We very much enjoyed this trip! Our guide Rakesh was simply brilliant as he was able to answer all our questions and gave so much information. He did not only tell us about Dharavi, but about Mumbai and India in general. We loved how the tour was organized, very easy to communicate. Also the chosen stopps and route was perfect for our interests and we learned a lot during these two hours. Thanks again Rakesh!
Great tour

Dinesh, Sanika and Mumbai Dream Tours team are highly knowledgeable about the spaces they show. They not only talk about the space, the history but also of the people and their lives. I am a local but enjoyed both tours immensely (we did the Heritage Walk and the Dharavi Slum Tour). Keep going guys
