What people are saying about Maharashtra

During my first stay in Mumbai this was one of 2 very carefully selected tours, and it was GREAT! Again a very good guide - thank you again Gurmeet, for all the information, kindness, and assistance provided! :-) Thank you to my driver Sunjay as well! We visited 2 famous and currently very active Bollywood studios, both located in Andheri East: 1. S.J. Studio and Entertainment, and 2. Chandivali Studio. We spent more time at S.J. Studio, the modern one (opened in 2000) of the two, but it certainly was worth it!: I had an overview of all the available sets, different halls, dubbing room, was introduced in the studio's history, enjoyed a few traditional and a modern dance performances, had a couple of video presentations, and - I even managed to pose for souvenir snapshot with Krishna Kaul during the live shooting of one of his TV series. Chandivali is one of the oldest remaining studios (82 y. old) with a rich history: many different sets there too, along with the most exquisite garden!

Great to use public transport - bus, taxi & train - to see the local life in Mumbai. We visited Dadar flower market, big outdoor laundry “shop” in Dhobi Ghat, dabbawalas at Churchgate station, Victoria train station, Chora thieves market, a walk at Marine drive, and other religious visit such as Haji Ali, & Mahalaxmi Temple. We also have a chance to enjoy an outdoor small lunch with the group in a garden
