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!
Priya was amazing. If you have the opportunity to spend a day or even part of a day with Priya, do so. She has such a diverse and extensive knowledge of Mumbai history and current issues. Priya was really flexible with our families varied interests, was able to adapt the itinerary as we went along, and was able to relate to the range of ages in our group. Thank you Priya for such a wonderful adventure in Mumbai!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for this warm appreciation! I had the nicest and most fun time with you and your wonderful family. All of you made me feel I was part of your family and I was encouraged to share even more of my city and myself with you. And yes, my folks and I are still laughing about the rabbit adventure! ;)

Ms. Priya gave us a comprehensive and interesting tour of Mumbai. She is not only very beautiful but, knowledgeable and professional. Priya presented us a variety of neighborhoods, each with their own character. We visited interesting places and acquired loads of information about Mumbai. We highly recommend Ms. Priya as she is a wonderful and pleasant guide.
A first class, very pleasant and knowledgeable guide. In the day that we had in Mumbai she gave us an excellent introduction to the city, gearing the visits to fit our interests. Her love of her city and general enthusiasm were infectious. She was always present to provide information and answer our questions but never intrusive. THE PERFECT TOUR GUIDE!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you sooo much, Cristina! Meeting both of you was such a pleasure ��

Alison WroeUnited Kingdom
Priya has an unbelievable knowledge of Mumbai, which allowed us to get the most out of our day and is keen to make sure that you get to see the parts of the city that are important to you. We did all the classic sites like The Gateway to India and Ghandis house but we're also able to have high tea at The Taj Mahal Hotel. Priya is very personable and understands that holidays are all about memories. Priya made sure that our day with her was full of those special memories that will stay with us forever.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alison, Thanks for this super feedback! I had a lovely day with all of you and hope that you will stay in touch (you have my email id). I'm so glad I could give you a taste of 'my Mumbai' and that you cherish those memories. All of you were so interested, enthusuastic and such good sports, you made it easy for me to share more of my city with you. Lots of love, Priya
Scott ArdoinUnited States
Priya was absolutely amazing. Her English is perfect & easy to understand. She has a kind, sweet & humorous personality. Priya brought us to the typical tourist sights, as well as to other places such as a pop up art show. When showing us these places, she was a wealth of knowledge. She is from Mumbai and it shows in her knowledge of the city and its history. Her kindness did not end when the tour ended as she sent us helpfu texts the next day. I honestly can't imagine there being a better guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for the lovely review, Scott. It was just as enjoyable for me to meet you and Phillip and hear your insights as I showed you around Mumbai.

Wonderful day with a well thought out itinerary. Priya is incredibly knowledgeable, flexible and entertaining. It was like being shown around by an old friend.

I highly recommend her. Very highly recommend

Priya was an outstanding guide....I was ill, to we spent most of the day in the car. The Ghandi home was a highlight and she was very knowledgeable about his life. Also, she was informative about Indian life, particularly about young married coupled and their future. She was also very knowledgeable about the Indian economy and education system.Overall, she was an excellent guide and the best we've had on this cruise.

Kevin JonesUnited Kingdom
Priya gave myself and my wife a splendid tour of Mumbai. She is one of the most knowledgeable guides I've encountered in more than 20 years of travel and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a first-rate, witty, insightful and just plain great fun tour experience. Priya knows all the nooks and crannies of Mumbai, off the beaten track, and she has a tremendous grasp of the history of her great city. We only regret not having a few more days to spend here for her to show us some more of the sights.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for the thumbs up!
Understanding Mumbai with Priya. What a WONDERFUL day this was. Priya is a very "special" guide, and a "book of knowledge". We saw, and had explained all of the highlights of Mumbai, and also "life in India" - the female version. We all feel very special in that we experienced "Mumbai" with Priya. She is just the BEST guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow thanks so much for this 'special' recommendation :) It was a treat for me to take you and Pam and Heather around my city as you'll are such wonderful women, well-travelled and genuinely interested in the local sights, sounds and sensibilities.
Gene J.Chesapeake Beach, MD, United States

Nancy ZwiersUnited States
Priya was very personable and knowledgable. During our rush hour drive in air conditioned comfort, the time flew as Priya shared so many interesting insights about Mumbai. She answered my many questions throughout the day with cheerful assurance. At the end if the tour. She even offered to help me grieve my lost baggage at the airport which added an extra hour to the day. I highly recommend Priya to any curious visitor to Mumbai.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much, Nancy! It was my pleasure to show you around Mumbai. It's always wonderful when a guest is as interested, intelligent and interesting as you are :) And I'm very glad we managed to trace your lost luggage.
Gerald L M HerdAustralia
Prya was brilliant taking my wife and myself to places in Mumbai that were part of my history as a young child. She was full if enthusiasm, charm and information. We had terrific day in her company. One day was far too short - I hope one day I will return and learn more about the city (with Prya) that I left so long ago. Thanks you for your kindness and care
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for sharing that journey with me, Gerald. It was such a privilege to see the spark in your eyes at familiar landmarks and to hear about Mumbai as you remember it. I do hope you both can come back again some day.
I had a great day with Priya, it felt as though I was being shown around by a friend, not someone I had just met. She is very knowledgeable about the history of all the sites & people & I learnt a lot, it made the tour very meaningful. Priya is very personable & easy to talk with making for great conversation. She knows a lot about food selection & as I love Indian food, it was great to try her suggestions for new dishes. She provides great service and offered plenty of advice for the rest of the trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for the great feedback, Steve! I really enjoyed showing my city to someone who appreciated its diversity and nuances :)
Priya showed us a side of Mumbai that probably few know. An amazing mix of religious beliefs all co-existing in such a small area. A wonderful bit of respite from the usual tourist haunts.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so glad you enjoyed this aspect of Mumbai. It was a privilege to take you and Romesh around as both of you are such involved and evolved travellers.
Priya tailored the shops to what we would like to see which was wonderful.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure, Geetha.
Philip CoulsonEdwards, CO, United States
Fun to be with and knows Mumbai
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Philip.
Me and my colleague really enjoyed the "understanding Mumbai" tour with Priya. She is very reliable, friendly and knowledgeable guide. She was able to provide in-depth insight, show some "hidden" sites and made us really feel the vibrant soul of the city. Thank you Priya!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the wonderful review, Maxim! I really enjoyed showing you and Art around the lesser known parts of Mumbai as well as the usual landmarks and monuments. Your interest and spirit of adventure made doing the tour even more fun for me.
