About
The tour (Group or private) through the slum's narrow alleys is quite an adventure, and you will undoubtedly feel the strong sense of community and the unique spirit that exists here. Dharavi became famous through the worldwide hit movie “slumdog millionaire“ in 2008. You will find a wide range of activities in this mini-city such as plastic recycling, leatherwork, pottery, papadam baking, soap production, such as schools and churches. Don't expect to find extreme poverty by walking through Dharavi. The tour breaks stereotypical beliefs and will inspire you for your daily life. and Tour Guides are College students live in Dharavi Slum

This place and people here are amazing. They show how strong, kind and open we all could be.

“I sometimes think that the size of our happiness is inversely proportional to the size of our house.” (Shantaram)

Our guide Dinesh was very professional. He speaks English very good. And because of his childhood in Dharavi, He told us some interesting stories from the past.

My friends and I always wanted to visit Dharavi and finally got a chance to with the help of Shailesh and Ronak. Our tour guide, Ronak, was experienced and had a good rapport with the locals in Dharavi (since he used to live there) which gave us a sense of safety and security. He took us around in an organised manner and showed us the Plastic Recycling, Leather Tanning and Dyeing, Cloth Tie and Dye, Glass cutting, Bag-making, and other such facilities in Dharavi. Sadly, we weren’t able to visit the Diya (earthen lamps) making community area because of COVID-19. We all wore masks throughout since many of the locals didn’t or perhaps, couldn’t. We walked quite a bit! Ronak was very informative and willing to answer all my doubts and questions without hesitation (and trust me, I had them in innumerable numbers, including some sensitive and ignorant ones). Couldn’t have been more content with this experience!

Ich bin ein Inder, aber ich habe das auch in eine deutscher Sicht gemacht, und ich denke, die Leuten aus Deutschland wurde es auch gefallen, aber nur mit eine offene Gedanken.

Dave (short for his real Indian name) our guide was terrific. He was young, friendly, energetic, local and knowledgeable. We combined this tour with a City Tour and spent the day with him and a driver. We booked a driver through the hotel concierge. The Slum tour was the most intense experience of the day (maybe our entire 2 week trip). We walked through the intense poverty of the village, walked in and out of “commercial” sections of the village and saw living quarters up close and personal. It left images in my brain that will last a lifetime. We previously lived in Africa and had experienced some pretty object poverty but the Mumbai slums are by far more extreme. Tip: don’t wear flip flops.
This tour was worth every Rupee. Do it!

Highly recommended trip, sensitively done. A real eye opener which gives you a real understanding of how this place actually works. Rackesh (The Professor of Mumbai) was extremely courteous, professional and very informative. His knowledge the area was evident both with hid delivery and relationship with the local people.

This is a fabulous experience! Our guide, Rakesh, did an excellent job of leading the tour. He exhibited a thorough understanding of the area (he lives in the "slum"), spoke excellent English and carefully controlled the tour timing. His ability to get a group of westerners comfortable with the environment was exceptional. With our eyes recalibrated to local conditions, we were able to appreciate the cleverness and hard work of the workers. (It reminded me of Charles Dickens' descriptions of cottage industries in Victorian London.) Do not hesitate to take this tour, it is a really great experience made better by Mystical Mumbai and our guide Rakesh.

Will remember this tour for the rest of my life! It was sometimes a bit difficult to understand the guide’s English, but just walking there and seeing how the people recycled plastic, coloured clothing, the school, tiny alleys where people lived and people praying in the middle of the street was a really memorable experience. It felt really safe as well. Very happy we did the tour!

Mystical Mumbai took a group of us to the slums of Mumbai. A fair amount of walking, but we saw sights that we will never forget. The tour was well organized and the guides were friendly. Highly recommended if you are in Mumbai.
