Throroughly enjoyed our tour through the 3rd largest slum in the world. It was super easy to book, we received a confirmation call almost instantly, and our tour guide Yash was waiting for us when we arrived. Can't speak highly enough of Yash...He used to live in Dharavi so his knowledge was fantastic, he communicated beautifully, and he was super helpful along the way. Can't recommend him and the company enough!

A excellent slum tour with local guide
My Wife and I did the Dhavari Slum tour with Chirag as a local guide.
He is a very good guide, speaks very well english and is much knowledgeable about the Dharavi as he was born and raised.
We have seen many interessting places of the Dhavari Slum, from the leather industries over plastic recycling, schools and pottery business.

During the tour you were able to support the local business but you are not force to do so, which is very nice.

The Pickup and Drop off worked flawless and on time.

Highly recommend Magical Mumbai Tours to everyone.

Fantastic, insightful tour of Dharavi
Ricky gave us an excellent tour of both the commercial and residential areas of Dharavi, providing both historical and present day context to the eye-opening sights.

The commercial aspect of the tour included visits to various stages of the plastic recycling process, a tailor, a leather works, insights into Dharavi’s barber shops, and much more.

The residential aspect of the tour provided an opportunity to visit Dharavi’s markets, schools, housing and we also received an insight into traditional pottery manufacturing processes.

Ricky was great throughout - not only was the tour highly interactive (he asked us multiple questions in order to test and inform us), Ricky also allowed us to ask questions on any number of topics. This enabled us to learn an impressive amount about the background of Dharavi’s residents and the inner workings of the ‘slum’ - all nicely packaged within a 2-hour tour.

Many thanks to Ricky for such an eye-opening experience!

Surprisingly great!!
I must say I had my doubts in regards the security because I was carrying a lot of stuff...Beside actually being a very safe place, Chirag’s vibe made it even safer!! It is definitely an eye opener and an interesting side of mumbai, to see the reality behind the city. They are hard workers and nice people. Chirag also was super patient when we stopped at a leather shop and it took me forever to decide what to buy 😬. The clay district was a great way to end the tour. Thank you Chirag!!
