Highlights with a unique point of view


In four hours we will tour unique and quirky highlights of Mumbai which will include:

Dhobi Ghat, where the city's open air laundry is done.

Harbor Cruise (not in the monsoons)a 30 minute ride on a open air ferry with the locals.

Sasson Docks Fish Market, truly the most amazing and unique experience, if you can stand the smell of fish! Fisherwomen shelling shrimp, balancing baskets of seafood on their heads, color everywhere! Photography not permitted but if you sneak a shot, I won't notice.

Britania for lunch, my favorite part of the tour. If you are a foodie, you are going to love the chicken berry palau (rice with berries and chicken)and the deep fried Bombay Duck (which is actually a fish!) here.

Bombay Electric and Bungalow 8, both beautiful stores with beautiful displays, BUT if shopping is not your thing we will go to the Parsi Zoroastrian Tower of Silence instead. Only one in the world where exposure of the dead is the final act of Parsi charity to feed the birds.

TOLD YOU IT WOULD BE UNIQUE!

A Recent Review of this tour

Ader is a wonderful guide. His knowledge of Mumbai is extensive. He ensured we saw all the sights we specified on Marine Drive and in Malabar Hill. He gave excellent historical and modern context to all sights. He showed us Chowpatty Beach and how the locals use it. He told us exactly what to do on visiting the Jain Temple. As well, we would never have seen anything of the Towers of Silence but for him. It was like touring with an old friend. We highly recommend him.
