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

Description

Start your private tour with pickup from your Mumbai hotel, or from the cruise port or railway station.
Delve into the streets in a private, air-conditioned car with your guide, and hear about Mumbai’s history, including its time under British rule from the 18th to the 20th century, and how it is India’s second-largest city, with a population of about 18.4 million.
Stop first at the vast Dharavi Slum, Asia’s biggest, and home to nearly a million people. Take a walk through this town-within-a-town, crammed with thousands of makeshift huts. Learn about daily life here, and pass tiny bread and sweet shops, interspersed with dimly-lit manufacturing units hosting small-scale clothes-, pottery-, and soap-making businesses.
Absorb the strong sense of community, and visit the plastic and metal recycling yard, where workers sort materials for re-use, before delving into Kumbharwada, the community of clay potters dubbed the ‘city of lamps.’ Explore the lanes here, weaving through thousands of hand-made, kiln-fired pots being crafted as oil lamps for festivals.
Having explored Dharavi, take a tour of the colonial and modern faces of Mumbai.

So glad I did it
Was visiting Mumbai for the first time. The sheer size of the city and the number of people here can be overwhelming. I’m traveling with a friend who was here on business so had a lot of time to myself. I didn’t want to come this far and stay inside a hotel so I booked a 1/2 day tour early in the morning for the same day. I received a confirmation call at 9:00 and scheduled pick up at the hotel for 1:00. My guide Dev was amazing as was his talented driver. Dev was very knowledgeable, and so enthusiastic about sharing his story and experience of living life in Mumbai and seeing it through his eyes. I saw beautiful people and beautiful places much deeper than the sometimes harsh visuals of a very difficult life for many. I saw more than I knew I wanted to, enjoyed great conversation, and ended the day feeling greatly enriched. We arrived back to the hotel about 6:30. Thank you Dev.

This is a small company, a tight team, and a great team. They spoke of their admiration for their management and how well respected and treated they were. A smart boss that knows happy employees make for happy customers. I was very impressed.

Its not a luxury tour if that’s what you’re looking for, but for me it was exactly the “real” experience I wanted. The price was an incredible bargain.

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.

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.
