Priya P.

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Hi, I'm Priya! I've lived in and loved Mumbai all of my life.

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!

Take one of my tours if you want to feel the REAL flavour of the city or get to a know a particular Mumbai neighbourhood. Think of me as a friend who will take you around her fave places, share a lot of interesting anecdotes and give you the lowdown on local haunts and habits. I can guide you on where to eat, shop, find a clean loo. . . basically everything you need to know to say that you really 'know' Mumbai!
