Ader is a wonderful guide. His knowledge of Mumbai is extensive. He ensured we saw all the sights we specified. He gave excellent historical and modern context to all sights. He guided us skillfully through the Dadar flower market and Crawford market including adjoining gold and textile markets, always conscious of our safety. When asked, he adapted the tour to include the Taj Hotel. We enjoyed a delightful lunch with him at his private club. It was like touring with an old friend. We highly recommend him
