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.

Itinerary

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

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Cruise Ship Port, Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building

A Recent Review of this tour

Priya arranged a 2 day program just for us during our port call to Mumbai. We saw most of the usual sites-but also had an eating festival-with local street food, a South Indian Breakfast in a neighborhood diner, Mumbai comfort food never seen in a North Indian Punjabi restaurant in the US. We went shopping for clothes using Indian fabrics and western designs. She had enough local knowledge to be able to tour local Jewish sites including two Baghdadi Jewish synagogues and a cemetery. Wow!
