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

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.

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.

Custom Trip around Bombay
I hate pre-packaged tours, and te great advantage of this one is that you can customise it. I know Mumbai quite well, but there were many places I didn't know about or had never got around to visiting, and this was perfect. However, if you are new to Mumbai, my engaging and helpful guide Rakesh's description of what he would suggest sounded really good to me. An air-conditioned car with a driver as well as a guide was perfect for a single or a couple,, or they will provide larger vehicles for larger groups. I suggest you do a little research yourself online, as there are places slightly off the beaten track that might be of interest.

Truly Eye Opening
We were very pleased with this tour that brought a new appreciation and understanding to the activity inside the Dharavi Slum. The tour was professional and comprehensive, and after the first part (Dharavi) included a whirlwind tour of highlights of Mumbai. Even though it is many hours, it moves fast, and allowed us to quickly see some top attractions and gave us great foundation perspective of the city. The guide was informative and friendly. I would highly recommend this tour!

personal tour of Dharavi
I was interested in seeing slums to see the economic and business nature of them, I had heard about. The tour guide was very knowledgable and showed me a number of businesses and factories that produce goods or recycle things. I had a lot of questions and he was happy to stop and answer all of them. Overall the tour was very interesting, none of the local hassled as I was with the guide and I felt safe the whole time. I would highly recommend the tour if you can make time. Possibly not the most interesting place for children but teenagers onwards should see this.

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.
