Mumbai slums

Excellent guide. Did a great job. Explained the rationale behind the area. Coming from Australia it can be confronting. However our guide explained while it works for his people.

Highly recommend.

Excellent day out to an Indian slum
Feb 2020 • Solo
Had a perfect half day tour with my local guide Farzan who was very knowledgeable and happy to share his real life experiences where a local resident with first hand experience. This was my third tour with Bollywood tours and highly recommend them as you will feel safe and secure at all times and they are very punctual as well. Farzan is a true asset to the team and if you have the pleasure of Farzan being your guide you won’t be disappointed ☹️. Thanks for a great day out and eye opening experience.

Dharavi will surprise you.
What ever you think you know before you visit Dharavi will not survive this exceptional tour of the 'slum'.

My tour guide Farzan is a local and he brought his passion and pride in this, his home, to the tour. He was articulate and informative at all times and I certainly felt completely safe under his guidance.

This tour was one of the most 'human' experiences I have ever had the privilege to be a part of.

This was my 2nd tour with World of Bollywood tours and as with last time the owner Rahil was a pleasure to work with and Farzan was the perfect host.

This tour might not be for everyone but if you are looking to understand Mumbai fully, have an open heart and a willingness to experience life in a way most of us never will then sign up. Farzan will change your expectations.

Amazing experience
Dec 2019 • Friends
We had an amazing experience with our tour guide Farzan. We felt safe all the same while exploring the most hidden corners in the slum. You can enter local factories with Farzan and he explains you everything in detail. We never felt rushed, and you just get lost in time wandering around the narrow streets.
The people living there are super friendly, you never feel misplaced.
We highly recommend the tour!

Outstanding Tour - Very Uplifting
Sep 2019
My tour guide, Farzan, is a life long resident of Dharavi, and provided an outstanding tour. The tour was thorough, authentic and educational. The most surprising part is how much better the residents are doing there, and with their educational opportunities, the children have tons of opportunities ahead of them. I was also surprised at the amount of industry hidden there, which is growing in a positive direction. Having Farzan provide the tour provided incredible insight and legitimacy, and I highly recommend this tour.

A 'must do tour' when in Mumbai
Apr 2019 • Solo
I was looking spontaneously for a late afternoon tour through Dharavi. Mr. Rahil Khan was the only one who could provide me a tour guide plus airport drop off all within a time frame of 3 hours. He personally picked me up at the meeting point and would let me know all the details and more about Mumbai before the tour started. My tourguide Farzan was extremely knowledgeable about Dharavi, had very impressive conversation skills and would know every corner of the neighborhood. I highly recommend taking him as a tourguide as he will make you feel safe and has very interesting local insights that you cannot possibly find on the internet. Definitely a must do tour as it was the one memory I kept from Mumbai.

Took this tour today. Yahya the guide did an excellent job explaining theindustries and lifi in the slum. Very good English and answered all my questions. He arrived early to my hotel and made sure the whole tour went smoothly. Ralih - his boss - was great, as well. Great communication during the booking and also called to make sure the tour was going well. I’d use this agency again for other tours in the future,
