All the best antique places in 7 hours.


Are you into antiques? REALLY INTO ANTIQUES? Then you are on the right tour.

I have scoped the best places for antiques in Mumbai. Whatever you fancy, wrist watches, fine porcelain, figurines, lamps, objects, you will find it on this tour.

There is a lot to see and it will take us all day including lunch at Britannia, a restaurant with the best Persian influenced food in the world. We will:

Go to Mutton Street in Chor (Thieves) Bazaar - several dozen stores of all kinds of antiques where the locals shop for their treasures.

Visit Moorthy's - the largest collections of colonial furniture and ethnic artifacts, mainly British, Indo-Portuguese, French and Dutch.

Phillips Antiques - founded in 1860, Phillips is still going strong. Films like A Passage to India, Gladiator and The Jungle Book used their antiques as props.

The Raj Company - three floors of artifacts and furniture of Indian and British colonial time.

If you love antiques, you will love this tour, customized for the antique lover in you.
