Five star in all aspects, could not have been better.
We could not have enjoyed our day more! Priya is a wonderful guide and, even more importantly, she is fun, empathetic, and a great communicator. We learned so much about Mumbai and its neighbourhoods, covered quite a bit of territory more efficiently than we could possibly have done by any other means (even factoring in the notorious Mumbai traffic scene!), and had an absolutely lovely lunch at the prettiest restaurant. She even took time to help us with some bargain-hunting shopping. Fab day!

Priya arranged a 2 day program just for us during our port call to Mumbai. We saw most of the usual sites-but also had an eating festival-with local street food, a South Indian Breakfast in a neighborhood diner, Mumbai comfort food never seen in a North Indian Punjabi restaurant in the US. We went shopping for clothes using Indian fabrics and western designs. She had enough local knowledge to be able to tour local Jewish sites including two Baghdadi Jewish synagogues and a cemetery. Wow!

She was friendly. Knowledgeable and very helpful and greatly enhanced our first visit to this interesting city. She had planned a full day and took into account our personal wishes as well as her extensive knowledge of the city. I would strongly recommend her to anyone wishing to visit Mumbai.

We had the most awesome 2 days in Mumbai with Priya. She is the best guide from all our travel to the 7 continents. As a journalist who grew up in Mumbai, Priya is extremely knowledgeable and insightful about every parts of the city. We visited the major sites as well as unique local neighborhoods and areas with no other tourists. Since Priya is also a food and travel writer, we had the most delicious Indian food ever—both Northern Indian and Southern Indian food. We highly recommend Priya!!
Dear Priya, We are travelling a lot around the world but you exceed our expectations !!! It was excellent day with you - thank you really very much !!!!! We have seen all interesting places in Mumbai not only those who are in every guidebook about India but also some hidden gems… Marek Grygier and the family

Priya was delightful, friendly and knowledgeable. She met us at our hotel and took us by taxi on a street food expedition in the evening. We tasted at one restaurant and several stands that we walked to. Everything was delicious and we felt that we had experienced some real Mumbai culture.

Priya was just wonderful in every way. She was very knowledgable and her English was perfect. We had a fun early day seeing the flower market and watching how the city wakes up. The driver was great too, and we packed so much in to a half day starting at 6am! I highly recommend this tour and Priya.
Priya is very knowledgeable about the history and sights of Mumbai. She has a friendly demeanor and got along very well with all of us from the start. She tried to make it tour interesting for my 9 year old as well. Priya also gave us good tips on where to get the best food in Mumbai. If you are considering booking a tour of Mumbai you should definitely choose priya as your guide.

Priya was excellent and arranged my tour to suit my exact needs. She even got her driver to drop off the sunglasses that I had left behind in her car!
Deborah MartinUnited Kingdom
Priya led us on a fantastic tour. We enjoyed an insight into both historical and Modern Mumbai through her knowledge and great communication skills. Would definitely recommend
We really enjoyed our tour with Priya! She made sure that we had the opportunity to see a range of night sights and enjoy a delicious dinner.
Our two day tour with Priya was a great way to see Mumbai! The city was completely different than we expected and we were pleasantly surprised! Priya showed us so many sights - train station, flower and fruit markets, the gateway to India, the waterfront and the list goes on. She went out of her way to make sure our experience was outstanding! Her restaurant recommendations were outstanding. Definitely recommend a tour with Priya!
Priya is a very decent and sophisticated Lady. As a Journalist she has seen many places in the world and knows which places in Mumbai are worth to visit. Besides that we had a great day full of fun and I can highly recommend her Tour
Eleanor L.United Kingdom
Priya is a great guide, she feels like a friend and really took the time to tailor her tour towards my specific interests (museums, galleries, architecture). My friend and I enjoyed our time in Mumbai and really enjoyed seeing some of the well known landmarks and 'must sees' alongside some local restaurants and shopping areas. Thank you Priya!
Tours By Locals came up with another winner again. Our guide in Mumbai (Priya) was delightful and we really enjoyed her company and her very informative tour of Mumbai. If you are a "foodie" and interested in experiencing fine (and safe) Indian Cuisine as well as seeing the sights in relaxed and friendly company without being diverted into to souvenir stores and silk shops, then Priya is the guide for you. Thank-You Priya, it was really fun and tasty !
Thoroughly recommend a tour with Priya in Mumbai (16 November). Perfectly fluent in English and considerable cultural knowledge, as well as providing a patient and competent driver in Mumbai's traffic. Rating of 5 stars.

Priya is 5 star all the way. Definitely top shelf.

Martin CotterUnited Kingdom
We had a wonderful 8 hours with Priya. It honestly felt like hanging out with an old friend who knew Mumbai like the back of her hand. She tailored our tour to suit our tastes, taking us to plenty of places off the beaten track. Having a driver meant we could 'hop on and off' and have some air conditioned sanctuary in between. I would thoroughly recommend a tour with Priya, you won't regret your decision, she is one of life's genuine people. Thank you Priya.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this wonderful review, Martin! I had a fab day with you and Lou Lou and I'm so so glad I could show you the side to my city that you were seeking. Hoping to see you again some time! Love, Priya

Excellent Tour. Very knowledgeable and friendly guide.
Jeff ForoUnited States
"Coming from the Seabourn Encore cruise ship, we and another couple spent a delightful six hours with Priya and her expert driver in a Toyota Innova minivan for a tour of Mumbai. Priya is a delightful mid-30s lady who speaks perfect English and obviously has a great love for her city. We let her suggest the itinerary and were not disappointed, especially as she seemed to take us to locations off the beaten tourist track. Highly recommended." Mark
Harriet PrennerLa Jolla, CALIFORNIA, United States
We had a wonderful day with Priya as our guide. She showed us all the highlights of Mumbai and we were comfortable in our air conditioned vehicle. The driver kept us safe under very difficult driving conditions. We got to see two Jewish synagogues and a Jewish cemetery which was very interesting and unexpected. Priya is knowledgeable and also took us to some great shopping stops. We had a great day and recommend you hire Priya for a great experience! We are so happy we did!
Kelly FitzgeraldUnited States
Mumbai is a sprawling, bustling city that might be surprising to the average Westerner. It seems that one could appreciate it better with more time and understanding. But, Priya does a great job showing the nice highlights and viewpoints of the city. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about her city. My boyfriend and I appreciated her flexibility as our cruise ship had some delays with debarking. I highly recommend this tour for getting a good taste of Mumbai.
Ronald HammerUnited States
Priya was an absolute gem as a guide. She is delightful as a person,very sincere ,generous and intelligent and wonderfully informed about her beloved city of Mumbai. We gave her an enormous list of what we might like to see,she covered it all and added some very special cultural and personal hi-lights.After 17 years as a journalist she now is a food critic so we had 2 marvellous lunches in restaurants that she picked.She helped us order and arranged vegan specialties,even a vegan birthday cake! 10Stars!
Robert G.United States
We had a great time on Priya's tour. She showed us lots of key places in the novel. Her love of her city shows through in the warmth with which she shares each detail of knowledge and interest. A fascinating, brilliant person, gave us a wonderful look around Mumbai. We felt exceptionally fortunate.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your lovely feedback on my tour! It was really wonderful to meet you and Virginia and I wish we had more time together. I hope the rest of your visit to Mumbai has been fun.
