I appreciate good food, a good book, animals, music, dancing, and loads of other stuff. I love travelling, and have been around quite a bit. . . seen India from corner-to-corner. I've lived in Sweden for a few months in Spring/Summer 2016 and been to parts of the US, UK, Canada, Australia, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Estonia, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Egypt, the UAE, Kenya, South Africa, Mauritius, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Sri Lanka and China.
I've worked as a lifestyle journalist for 20 years, including an eight-year stint with the Times of India, India's leading English language daily. I was also the Editor of two parenting magazines for seven years before I quit in October 2014 to launch a career in freelance writing and work on a book. But I still have enough time, energy and enthusiasm to help visitors to Mumbai find their groove. I would love to show you around my city!

A Recent Review of this guide
I had an awesome time with Priya. With just one day in Bombay, I could not have wished for a better guide. Her knowledge of the city, from short cuts to moving swiftly from one place to another to her informative, interesting and knowledgeable explanations and anecdotes was outstanding. Tasted delicious food and bought some special things from all different corners of south Bombay - great day out!
