Follow in the footsteps of 'Shantaram'
If you've read Gregory David Roberts' fascinating book Shantaram, you'll know that his Mumbai is full of very interesting places and people. Here's a chance to see all of them up close and personal!
You can see where he stayed, the restaurants and places he frequented. I can even take you to areas that are redolent of the same atmosphere where his fictional characters lived and loved.
I may not ride a bike like Greg, but I will take you on a taxi tour of Mumbai that will leave you just as overwhelmed! Don't wait for the movie, see Shantaram's Mumbai yourself.
* Where Shantaram lived
* The medical store where he bought all his supplies when he played 'doctor' to his neighbours
* A peek into the restaurant where he met the love of his life (you can stop here and have a drink/meal at your own expense) or go on with the rest of the tour
* A walk through the lanes and bylanes of the crowded (and somewhat seedy) areas where the latter half of the book is set

We had a great trip with Priya,she had just a great passion for the book as we had, and it let to get conversations on which parts of the book are our favourites and so on, it felt more like being on a walk with a good friend sharing knowledge than being on a tourist tour.
