I took a tour with Mystical Mumbai and Shailesh was our guide for the day.
It was a really insightful and fun 2.5 hours walking tour of Dharavi and Kumbharwada.
Shailesh was really articulate and on point with his information and it was so delightful known this well-known yet less explored part of maazhi Mumbai
I definitely recommend this to anyone who loves exploring and knowing places in-depth
Life in Dharavi

It was an eye-opening and fascinating experience to walk through the streets of Dharavi and to learn about the people, neighborhoods and the thriving industries/businesses within Dharavi. This self contained community is full of life and is a must see. Nikesh was my guide and he was knowledgeable since he also lives in Dharavi which made the experience much more authentic.
