I have been a Mumbai sightseeing guide since 2010. It was the fulfillment of a dream I have had for over a decade. I love the beauty and history of Mumbai City and enjoy sharing my passion and enthusiasm for Mumbai with visitors and residents alike.
My company also conducts private, group, and special occasion tours. My tours are always evolving and changing, much like our city, and I always try to give my guests the very newest and complete information available. I love what I do, plain and simple. This is not a job for me; it is my life's passion

Best ever tour guide
This week we have visited Mumbai. Our Elephant Island followed by a city tour couldn’t have been better. Kheersana our guide is one of the best guides we have had. Wonderful local knowledge followed by a fabulous sense of humour and gentleness. We highly recommend it all.
Journey through the Dharavi slums
Hello everyone! I will tell You about our journey through the Dharavi slums. We were able to go there on 20.10.19. We agreed with providers about convenient time for us. Exactly at the appoint time we were met at the hotel by car and taken to the place of the starting. Our tour was in english. We very simply understood each other.

First we were able to see the famous local open-air laundry where daily the Dhobi caste do laundry.
Then we went directly into the slums. We were shown the unhealthy plastic recycling process, the local bakery and other slums crafts. None of locals asked us for money! I will stop to describe, those who dare necessarily see for themselves.

General impressions.
Solid five for prividers! Do not doubt You will get out of Your zone of comfort. Some facts can be shocking and beyond belief. For example, hygiene and nutrition. I saw that even in the slums very very slowly but the digital age is coming. You can meet people with cheap mobile phones on it’s streets. Undoubtedly they are progressing. Of course we were taken out of the slums and driven back to ohr hotel)

You need to respect the local rules and listen to the Guide! Please, if You are asked not to make photos You do not need to experiment to create problems for Yourself and the Guide. Where You can - You will be allowed. People are happy there - watch for correctness of Your statements! Always listen to the Guide. Do not be lazy to buy rubber/rain boots that will not be sorry to leave there, it is hard to find it in India.

Thanks for the tour to MysticalMumbai!
This is a sad priceless experience that will remain for the life term!
Half day tour with Suraj
My first time in Mumbai so I wanted to have a quick tour of the city to have an idea of what should be explored. Mission accomplished. Suraj, my guide, despite his young age has a good knowledge of the places and their histories as he has lived his entire life in Mumbai. He is well spoken and easy to understand even for me who English is a second language. He is back to school to increase his knowledge. It is clear that he is passionate about what he is doing and I can see a great future for him in this industry. Thanks Suraj, great tour.
Dharavi slum tour
The tour gave an inside of the life of the people. Ajaw was very clear in his explanation. He toke the time for us and showed all the different sides of the slum. Thank you
Bollywood Tour
Amazing and very informative. We really enjoyed dancing and it was great to learn about the history of Indian movies. I’m going to watch “Mother India” and “Padnavati” now.
