Great Tour with Tiger (not Woods)
philipd414, 22-12-2022
We had a great time with our guide, Tiger, and our driver. They modified the tour to meet our need that we not be on tour for more than four hours; we certainly could have taken in more, but we had been on a cruise for two weeks and were pretty tired. In addition, we had taken a tour on the prior day through the cruise line. Still, they took us to some great places other than the ones we had seen on our prior tour (e.g. hanging gardens, Marine Drive), including the staging area for the vendors who distribute custom-ordered lunches to clients by bicycle, the incredible outdoor laundry market, the Portuguese fort on the beach, past the skyscraper home of the country’s richest man, past Ghandi’s home , and over an amazing bridge. There is s an indoor option to go into the Ghandi home (now a museum) would probably be worth it). Tiger is a native and was willing to share all kinds of information about the educational system, religious traditions, life in the slums, etc. He also negotiated a short ride for us on one of the open air taxis that are about the size of a large golf cart. If you take this tour (and you should), be prepared for Mumbai traffic—jammed, slow, harrowing at times, and noisy; the horn honking is incessant. We had an ambitious pizza delivery guy on a scooter crash into us; fortunately, no one hurt except, perhaps, the pizza.
Tiger is the best!

We had a great experience seeing Mumbai for the first time with Tiger! He was a great guide! We got both a cultural and tourist experience all around the city that our group really enjoyed
Amazing tour

We booked a two day weekend tour including the Mumbai city tour as well as the Elephanta caves tour.

It were amazing days where we could experience a lot of different places in Mumbai, all of the cities most beautiful places, delicious restaurants, tour guides favorite spots and learned a lot about culture and history.

Tiger and Rahil ensured that we had a great experience at any time (also during sudden Monsoon rainfall) and that we could see as much as possible in the two days.

We can highly recommend the tour!
Amazing experience

Great tour visiting different temples, markets and shops. Guide Rahil Khan showed me the Gods, Goddesses and Saints and what each one represents and how offerings are made. I was able to make offerings, feed sacred cows and even participate in a ritual being blessed. I tried indian food in clean and organized place. In the markets I was able to buy ingredients to prepare some dishes and especially to make Chai.

Wow what a day Rahil and Rajid you did it again setting such a high standard of hospitality that is beyond belief. See things like the Portuguese streets to fishing villages was something we both found to be something that you could never see only in the movies. Of course Rita favourites of course where all the bollywood stars live. Also geeting to see how the stars live on location was beyond her dreams. Food was truly delightful and off course my chai was so good. My 3 year oldson has found a great uncle forever so thanks for looking after us all
