2 consecutive days, eight hours daily in a chauffeur-driven AC Toyota Innova
When you book this tour, you can have the benefit of having me as your guide over two full days in the bustling city of Mumbai. I will customise these days by theme as per YOUR interests so that you have the best Bombay experience possible.
You could go through the list of my tours to pick what appeals to you or write to me to discuss how you'd like to spend your time in the city and what you'd like to focus on.
If your group is larger than four people, or your pick up location is not in South Mumbai, feel free to contact me for a customised tour that specifically suits your needs.
You could combine the 8-hour Understanding Mumbai tour with another one that narrows the focus. In the past, I've conducted the following thematic tours to great success:
SHOPPING: Tips on the best buys and bargains
SPIRITUALITY: Understanding the complex connections between the many religions, with visits to various places of worship
FOOD: Explore vegetarian street-style food or kababs and shawarma rolls in a hygienic place. Or I can curate a high-end fine-dining experience for you. Or book us a place at a regional culinary experience in someone's home.
JUDAISM: Exploring the important synagogues, buildings, cemeteries and stories of the Jews in India. With a kosher meal at a cafe owned by a Jew.
ANTIQUES: A ramble through all the antique shops, including a visit to the colourful Thieves' Market (Chor Bazaar) where you never know what awaits you!
MUSEUMS: They certainly aren't boring, with some of them being an integral part of the city's history and India's struggle for freedom

As I toured India I needed a two day tour of Mumbai, Of course I called Tours by Locals and once again they made the two days in Mumbai perfect. My guide for the two days was Priya Pathiyan. She was not only my guide but immediately made a connection with me. Priya adjusted quickly as she saw what I was interested in. That made the two days perfect. I learned tons, as Priya knows Mumbai because its her home, we had fun as we saw the city. That made the tour personal and memorable. Thank you so much.
