Mehadi was the perfect driver and tour guide. His english is perfect and his knowledge of Mumbai and history and geography of Mumbai is exceptional. I added and took away some things from the itinerary and he was great at building that in to the tour. A really excellent day. Thank you Mehadi.

~14 different types of food tried in a walk plus cab plus train trip to different areas of the city. Highly knowledgeable guides and the company has a notable and clearly impactful charitable mission improving education in slums.

Hitesh is a great guide and the tour was interesting on the train and bus but then sadly included some trips by share taxi as well. I know that a bus would probably take too long in the traffic but would be a good addition.

The guide was excellent really informative and interesting. This tour divides opinion but we decided to do it and don't regret it at all. Certainly an education!

Great guide and food! Very knowledgeable about the cuisine and origins, and very generous proportions! Was absolutely stuffed by the end! Highly recommended!
