Must see markets

Markets are my favorite way to learn about a city. This tour included produce, jewelry, textiles, fashion, housewares, sundries, pets, and more! All within walking distance of each other. My guide was friendly and knowledgeable. I'vd booked a slum tour with the same company for later today.

Excellent walking tour. Met on time as arranged. Guide was very knowledgable and told some interesting facts about the city. She was genuinely interested in our expectations and took us to many really interesting places. I would strongly recommend this excursion.
Many thanks

We had the most incredible tour of the markets and temples in South Mumbai with Suja and Depak!! We spent 2.5 hours exploring and being told about the history of the area. We even took a little detour to try some street food! They helped me haggle when purchasing some fabric and also helped us at the end when the taxi had no change for us. We (2 women in our 20s) felt completely safe with the two of them and really appreciated the time they spent showing us around and answering our questions. We also love that a portion of the tour cost goes to charity. If you're looking to go on an adventure at low cost in Mumbai, this is the tour for you!
Fab way to explore local areas.

Visiting Mumbai for a few days. Been here before and did all the big tourist attractions then. We wanted to explore more of the local areas and markets this time. This tour did not disappoint! Chetan, our lovely, and very knowledgable young man, took us around the streets, markets and a few temples in the area. He gave us a running commentary on points of interest and areas we passed by. He told us some of the history of Mumbai and was full of facts. He even help me buy a sari for a friend. I am sure if I had gone myself it would have cost a lot more! The tour we just long enough, and at a good pace for us, in our late 50s. Would recommend this to all ages.
Fascinating Side of the City

The tour covered so much and we saw many wonderful things. The tour guide spoke English well and added some personal insights as well. The only complaint is that it should have been longer and slower. We went really quickly through some parts of the market that we would have liked to linger in, but overall, one of the better tours we've taken.
