An invaluable glimpse into a sophisticated society
RichardTraffordOwen, 05-03-2022
This was my second trip with World of Bollywood Tours, because the first one (Best of Mumbai Private City Tour with Lunch and Transport) was so good.

I figured I couldn't see Dharavi without a guide and this proved to be the case. You would never be able to navigate without a guide and you wouldn't really have any context for what you would see.

Yahya, my guide, was born there and lives there still. He took me on a 90+ minute route through a maze of passageways, roads and alleys. Dharavi is a hive of activity, every few steps you'll see something new. Yahya explained how the industrial and residential parts of the community work. For example, he showed me how plastics are gathered, broken down and sorted, cleaned, dried, turned into pellets, etc. For example, he showed how cardboard gets cleaned up and repurposed. He showed where people live, go to school, the doctors, etc. He answered about a million of my questions with great graciousness and a pride of his community.

I didn't take many photos. It seemed disrespectful and I heard that it might be considered rude. I don't think photos or videos could really do justice to the experience anyway.

I found it very inspiring. Dharavi seems to do a fantastic job of recycling, reusing and repurposing. Don't we all need to do this? The amount of human endeavour and enterprise truly impressed me. Slum seems a pejorative term for Dharavi. I won't be using it.

Tiger, who took me round the city on my previous tour, picked me up again from my hotel. It was good to see him. He took me by cab to Dharavi and brought me back by train. I don't know if this was standard, but he knew I hadn't ridden the train and wanted to. I got to lean out of the carriage door like a local and see how the system works.

Thank you Yahya. Thank you Tiger. I highly recommend this tour.

Excellent guide. Did a great job. Explained the rationale behind the area. Coming from Australia it can be confronting. However our guide explained while it works for his people.

Highly recommend.
Excellent day out to an Indian slum

Had a perfect half day tour with my local guide Farzan who was very knowledgeable and happy to share his real life experiences where a local resident with first hand experience. This was my third tour with Bollywood tours and highly recommend them as you will feel safe and secure at all times and they are very punctual as well. Farzan is a true asset to the team and if you have the pleasure of Farzan being your guide you won’t be disappointed ☹️. Thanks for a great day out and eye opening experience.
Must Do Experience in Mumbai

This tour was the highlight experience of our 5 days in Mumbai. Our guide, Farzan, was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and experienced as he expertly guided us through the streets of Dharavi
Dharavi will surprise you.

What ever you think you know before you visit Dharavi will not survive this exceptional tour of the 'slum'.

My tour guide Farzan is a local and he brought his passion and pride in this, his home, to the tour. He was articulate and informative at all times and I certainly felt completely safe under his guidance.

This tour was one of the most 'human' experiences I have ever had the privilege to be a part of.

This was my 2nd tour with World of Bollywood tours and as with last time the owner Rahil was a pleasure to work with and Farzan was the perfect host.

This tour might not be for everyone but if you are looking to understand Mumbai fully, have an open heart and a willingness to experience life in a way most of us never will then sign up. Farzan will change your expectations.
