This was a great tour for anyone interested in Jewish communities. We visited 3 synagogues, none of which had a visible sign to passerbys. While all were Sephardic, each one highly interesting in its own way. Also saw the Sassoon Docks (a name prominently displayed at the Mogen David synagogue and High School), the beautiful Victoria Station, and the largest public laundry in plain view in the world. Our guide certainly knew his way around and gave us a deeper appreciation for Mumbai. Recommend.

Shailesh and his driver were fantastic. Kind, passionate and flexible, they showed me around their home town, sharing some of their favourite parts. I saw and your xperienced things I am sure I would have missed, had I joined a standard tour. Shailesh was really knowledgeable and in addition to telling me about the history of key attraction me, he also shared personal anecdotes and we had interesting conversation about anything from politics, love and religion to food (incl recipes!). Thanks!

FIVE STARS!! It was outstanding and Shailesh was a terrific guide, professional, personable and incredibly knowledgeable; he was a pleasure to spend the day with. He and our driver (forgive me but I forget his name) made an awesome team. By the end of the day we felt we had really gotten an in depth look and wonderful feeling for Mumbai. —Richard Levine

We thoroughly enjoyed our Shailesh. He was knowledgeable and engaging and helped us see all the major sites despite the very heavy rains. He helped us (and our umbrellas) in and out of the car at each stop. He even went off to find a plastic bag for the cell phones since they were getting wet. Everyone on the tour had a great time and really appreciated our time with Shailesh along with the very safe driver who took us around. Highly recommend any tours with Shailesh.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks alot and was great time with you. Let me know if you are in Mumbai again

We were really pleased by the personality, the professionalism and history knowledge of our guide Shailesh who was able to answer to all of our questions. He let us time after each explanation to translate in French to our children. Visit the slum was a great experience for the 5 of us and the Shailesh's way to present people and their way of life is really respectful for everyone. We fully recommend Shailesh

Outstanding tour giving us an in depth understanding of Mumbai and the slums as well as visiting other major sights in the city. We saw so much more in 6 hours than would ever be possible on one of the ship's tours. Shailesh is obviously very intelligent and an excellent communicator with excellent command of the English language.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for selecting us and glad you enjoyed with me I appreciated for Spekmg time and writing a review about me Thanks Shailesh

Thank you for a really lovely day and tour. My guide was very informative and spoke exellent English. Unfortunately it was New Year's Eve so no filming or actors were there. But this meant that I could get up close and personal to sets. The Bollywood dance demonstrations were lovely , but looked a little under rehearsed as dancers weren't always ready on time. But they were great dancers. I think the explanation of the dance movements would have been more useful at the start. Safe tour and guide. Thanks

the tour was excellent. Shailesh met me at the appointed time; had everything arranged (there was quite the series of taxis, ferry, admission fees, train...) he had all the paperwork and tickets pre-arranged. He was extremely knowledgeable, and was able to tailor the tour to my specific interest. I commend the company for assigning a tour guide who actually lives on the island! it's very different to get the perspective from someone who actually lives there. I will definitely use TBL again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for writing Review. Highly appreciated

This was an absolutely amazing tour! Shailesh is so very personable and made us feel so very comfortable. He is trustworthy and met us at our hotel. He took us throughout our tour and was very detailed in explaining every aspect of the tour. We were one on one touring the Dharavi Slum and were able to interact with the people. We learned so much in the tour about this community. We also toured other parts of Mumbai including the laundry and Gandhi's home. We had an incredible time. A+ TOUR!
