John E.United States
Ader is among the best of the best Tours by Locals guides we have used. The tour was richly informative and superbly executed. But apart from the tour itself it would have been worth the price just to spend the day with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow! Thanks John. I had a great time with you both yesterday, and I hope we reconnect soon. Ader
Ader is a wonderful guide. His knowledge of Mumbai is extensive. He ensured we saw all the sights we specified. He gave excellent historical and modern context to all sights. He guided us skillfully through the Dadar flower market and Crawford market including adjoining gold and textile markets, always conscious of our safety. When asked, he adapted the tour to include the Taj Hotel. We enjoyed a delightful lunch with him at his private club. It was like touring with an old friend. We highly recommend him
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Terry for your kind words. I had a great time with you both day before yesterday. I look forward to visiting your woods some day. Until then be safe in your travels and lots of love. Ader
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.

The day we spent in Mumbai with Ader was the Highlight of our 14 day cruise. Ader had suggestions for the day and asked what we wanted to do and together we made a great day covering much more than we had anticipated. His knowledge was fabulous and made everything interesting. As the day progressed we even amended our schedule as after conversations regarding the old motor cycles in India and he took us to 'Happy Motors' - off the beaten track and made my husband's day..... We will visit again - with him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow ....Thank you both for your compliments. I had a great time with you both and seeing the Norton 650 was icing on the cake. Lots of love, and see you both soon in Mumbai or UK or San Fran. Ader
Lawrence ZlatkinUnited States
Ader is knowledgeable, professional, timely and flexible. He is continually thinking of how to add or adjust to the circumstances of traffic and the needs of his clients. And, he brings perspective to the subject matter, along with an engaging desire to learn. I would endorse Ader to anyone wanting to explore Mumbai, whether it is the Jewish tour or Mumbai more generally. Thank you Ader.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lawrence, Thank you for your very kind words and giving me an excellent rating. I enjoyed touring with you today and I look forward to us remaining in touch. Ader

Anne LueneburgerUnited Kingdom
The best! Flexible, incredibly insightful (we asked him so many off the beaten path questions and on most he had a very rich and substantive response) and also generous as he showed us/invited us to his private club. We could not have asked for more, you need to meet Ader. He also has a wicked sense of humor, really great.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Anne. I loved touring you both over 2 days. Got to really know you both. Hope our paths cross again soon. A
Patricia DellasUnited States
What a fabulous day with Ader and highlights of Mumbai tour. It was as if we were visiting the city with a friend, and Ader was incredibly informative, flexible with our interests, and a wealth of anecdotes. We know we were off to a great start when the good luck bird arrived! Lunch was amazing and Ader's choice of driver and vehicle for the four of us...perfect. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. We hope to meet up once again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Patricia, Kate, John and Scott, What a lovely day I had with you yesterday! Safe continued travels filled with adventures and stories await you. Ader

Brilliant, knowledgeable and accommodating with a great sense of humour. Book this guide!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David. I enjoyed touring your group of 11 from the cruise. Great bunch of friends. Ader
Steve PresantUnited States
I like toursbylocals as I can customize what I want to see. Working with Ader was easy and we agreed on sights to see in Mumbai before we got there. Ader met us at the Green Gate as agreed and off we went. There were four of us and along with his driver we had a fantastic time in the city and visiting Elephanta Island. Ader worked with us in dealing with Rupees/Dollars at some sights which made buying some things easy. Highly recommend Ader for a truly great customized tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Steve for your 5 Star rating. I remember our trip to Elephanta well along with our driver Manoj. We did have a memorable day together. Please remain in touch and thank you for your review.

Robert HeathUnited States
Probably our best tour guide ever. Incdredibly knowledgeable about not only the sites but also the culture of Mumbai. Could not recommend him highly enough.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Martin for such a high recommendation. I enjoyed touring with you in December. Thank you. Ader
Ader was most accommodating and very well prepared. He gave us many options as we went through the day to ensure we saw everything as we wished. A full day of very interesting sights in an incredible city. We recommend Ader highly for this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear James, I enjoyed touring you both on my first Jewish tour and learnt a lot from the both of you! Thank you for your kind comments and we shall connect somewhere in the world soon. Shalom. Ader
Juliette LeechUnited Kingdom
We called at short notice to arrange a tour to give us a 3-4 hour overview of Bombay on a fleeting visit. Ader was absolutely fantastic, hugely informative, showing us off he beaten path sights as well as the must-see ones. He was also very helpful about restaurants and shops
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Juliet's, Thank your the five star rating! I loved touring you and GUI. Glad you are safe and sound in England,and let's continue to remain in touch. Ader

George S.Boca Raton, FL, United States
Best guide we had on our 23 day trip. Knowledgeable, communicates well, and really knows Mumbai and the various Indian cultures. Absolutely no surprises and we all greatly enjoyed our day with Ader. He provided all services required from pick-up at the port, tending to our luggage, and drop off at the Mumbai airport. I highly recommend him to all who are traveling thru Mumbai and require a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear George, Thank you for you comments and review, and also I heard you put it on the Better Business Bureau web site., which was very significant for Tours By Locals. We sincerely appreciate it. I had a great time with the four of you and am glad that all went according to plan. Thank you again for your very kind words. Ader
Hal MarzSAN FRANCISCO, CA, United States
Ader was a truly amazing guide. He created a customized tour for me due to the limited time I had in Mumbai. He was very thoughtful in each and every detail of the tour and ensured I thoroughly enjoyed every site we visited. His extensive knowledge of history, culture, food and shopping were evident in our day together. I just wish I had another day to spend in Mumbai to have more adventures with Ader.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Hal, Thank you for your comments. I enjoyed touring you in Mumbai. It was very interesting to learn about your life. I am very glad that you were happy with our time together. I always learn something new when I tour with my guests. I hope we reconnect soon and possibly in San Francisco! Thank you. Ader
Craig JohnsonUnited States
My wife and I spent two days touring Mumbai with Ader, who was charming, intelligent, attentive to our interests, and who gave us wonderful insights into the culture, peoples, religions, and dynamics of the city and India. I should add that his English is excellent. We strongly recommend Ader.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Craig for taking the time to give me such a good rating. I enjoyed touring you both in Mumbai and have very fond specific memories of the places we visited. Hopefully our paths will cross sometime again soon. Ader
Roger MadiganUnited States
Ader was terrific. We sat down for a few minutes with Ader at the start of our tour to describe what we wanted to visit and he got us to each one with plenty of time to see everything we wanted plus two more stops that most tourists never see. Ader was very patient for me when I wanted to take some photos. One important note: Ader's rate includes a car and driver, allowing us to really have ample time. We recommend Ader very highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Roger and Ronny, It was a delight touring the both of you. You were both so courteous and positive, and easy to tour. And we did get quite a few places covered in the 4 hours. Thank you for pointing out that my tour includes a car and a driver. I will change my tour listing to reflect that as per your suggestion. Thank you both very much. Ader
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ken for giving me such an excellent rating. I enjoyed our time in Mumbai a lot.
Ila LoebAtherton, CA, United States
Day two with Ader was no less informative or entertaining. The plans for the day changed often on the spur of the moment and included everything we wanted to do from seeing the slums, to the antique market, the Gold Souk and the amazing Tower of Silence, custom shops, charming and delicious local eatery. We enjoyed listening to Ader speak about his India and paint the colorful verbal picture that was everywhere we looked.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ila, Thank you very much. My regards to Irene, Jerry and Marshall. It was a pleasure to spend time with such enthusiastic travellers and I look forward to connecting with everyone soon. Ader
Ila LoebAtherton, CA, United States
Ader, an amazing guide, well educated, articulate, fun, exuberant who provided us with an amazing intro to Mumbai. We saw the usual and unusual, expected and unexpected, and learned a lot about India's culture, politics, social life, financial world and various religions, We not only saw Mumbai but experienced Mumbai. Because of Ader, all five of our senses were awakened and have triggered wonderful flash backs of our exceptional time in Mumbai.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow! Ila, THANK YOU for your very kind words. I thoroughly enjoyed touring with you, Irene, Marshall, and Jerry, and the fact that you were from the Bay Area made it all the more special. Happy holidays, and I am sure our paths will cross again very soon. Love to all. Ader
David HurmanUnited Kingdom
First time have used "Tours by Locals" and can thoroughly recommend, good communication, arrived exactly as stated and very friendly. Our tour guide Ader spoke perfect english, not surprising as he's lived in America, he knew Mumbai extremely well and tailored the tour to our requests and time limit. Wouldn't hesitate to use both him and tours by locals again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David for the best rating possible! Ader
Jill BauerFernandina Beach, FL, United States
This is the perfect private guided tour! Ader picked us up at the dock with a nice car and driver. He took time to work out a detailed agenda with us, based on what we wanted to see. We're not shoppers - but we like to see where the locals shop and how they live. We saw all the best sights and had a fabulous lunch. Ader was an expert on the culture of India and gave us interesting commentary, from Indian and American perspectives. The whole day with Ader was like having an old friend show us the sights.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jill, Thank you so much for your kind words. I appreciate the time I spent with you both in Mumbai. You were great travelers and I appreciate how attentive and considerate you were. Ader
Ader is the Perfect Guide if you like to go beyound the cliches. He will show You Mumbai from a local view with a lot of Knowledge. Of course he can also bring you to all the Mainattractions.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Peter. It was my pleasure touring such a fine gentleman. Ader
