Maya R.

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Traveller, yoga Sadnik, reader , fashion Nazi, socialite , global citizen , lecturer and a passion for hard work Namaste (Hello) I am Maya from Mumbai, India.

Think of me as a friend who will take you around Mumbai , give you a little history of the places and habits of the people. I can guide you on where to eat, shop, where to party, and also where the Bollywood film stars live. , basically everything you need to know about MUMBAI , the city that always excites everyone , and also the city that never sleeps .

Mumbai is also the commercial capital on India and also the eastern equivalent of New York and Los Angeles.

Mumbai is an emotion.
Welcome to the city that cant live w/out Bollywood Chaska.

Spend sometime here and your life will be unforgetful .

Mumbai, Mumbai you're a wonderful city

After all a mother is called -
MUM in English
BA in Gujarati and
AI in Marathi

Talking of Beautiful Mumbai. . . . . where even the BEST bus conductor motivates us '' chalo aage badho" meaning please move forward.

Mumbai also has one best airports in the world. . the Chatrapati Shivaji International Airport. Mumbai airport , is the busiest single runaway airport in the world, broke its own record when it handled 980 arrivals and landings in 24 hours on January 20, 2018. . . . . simply amasing.

I live in Bandra West, one of the western suburbs in Mumbai, where there are quaint ancient villages and old seaside charm in this suburb . . . . where time stands still here. The quaint Bandra by -lanes have an old world charm

Bandra. . also called the Queen of the Suburbs. . . the burb by the water and the choicest of the western suburbs. Everyone loves Bandra, a cosmopolitan area with hip bars and cafes . . . this suburb gives an extraordinary vibe which makes one feel connected. It is out of this love , that you should absolutely explore Bandra through food. But not the fancy restaurants that have taken Bandra by storm, one should actually go into the by lanes of Bazaar Road, Chapel Road and Pali Village to some of the lovely family eateries , where you can relish some authentic East Indian food.

I can take you to experience the local food , or just take a walk down a promenade. . . . and have a peek at "Mannat" mansion. Drive through Pali Hill and marvel at the property rates.

I can also take you saree shopping and teach how you to drape the saree.

If you want to learn indian cooking, I can arrange for that and also let you sample the food.

I am basically a people 's person and have been in the hospitality industry since the last fourteen years. I love meeting different kinds of people.

Take my tours , if you want to to get the real unique feel of Mumbai or see a particular Mumbai neighbourhood

I can customize your tour according to your requirement with prior intimation.

I ❤️ Mumbai

Maya was friendly porganized and very informative about every location or site we visited There were 4 of us in a good size car her driver was excellent in keeping us safe and negotiating the local traffic Part of this trip Maya took us to a local restaurant for a authentic local vegetarian meal it was simply fantastic Book with Maya for 5 star tour

From a merchant Navy background, my father was in the merchant navy, I have travelled almost the whole world.

Then was trained as a flight stewardess, did an IATA course in travel and tourism, and then finally did a Master in arts in Indian history.

Just recently did a certified course at the British Council, Mumbai , to train IELTS students

Have been in the hospitality industry since the last fourteen years.

I love learning about different cultures from other countries.

But my major asset is that I am a people's person , love meeting different people , travelling and partying.


I am not a licensed guide and will not be able to guide you , inside historical monuments.
