What to expect
Meet your guide in the morning near Mahim Station (West) outside Cafe Coffee Day restaurant. Dharavi has a population of almost one million people, the largest slum neighborhood in Asia. Head into Dharavi to learn about life in India and challenge any negative stereotypes associated with the idea of "slum" living. Observe a wide range of small industry at work, such as recycling, pottery-making, embroidery, soap-making, and leather tanning. Most activities use innovative techniques in very confined spaces. People from all over India live in Dharavi, a diversity that becomes apparent when you see temples, mosques, and churches side by side. Note the sense of community as you tour the area on foot while your guide provides insightful commentary.

Amazing tour!!!
Feb 2020
This was an amazing tour! Sooo happy that we chose to visit the Dharavi Slum.
The pick-up at the port came an hour earlier than expected. An email had been sent but we did not see it until it was too late. Not a problem.....another driver was called and we landed up having a private tour. Our tour guide Hashim was amazing. He lives in the slums and is proud to say it. I had my reservations about going but after reading many reviews decided to go ahead with the tour. Whereas I thought it was going to be a depressing intrusion on people’s lives, we were pleasantly surprised with how happy all the people were. We were welcomed by all the children and never felt that we should not be there. What a wonderful community spirit and pride. Everyone seemed to have a purpose and a job. The industries that have grown and evolved should serve as an example to others. I was so impressed with the fact that 92% of the children attend school. In the two hours that we were there we saw a thriving community filled with happy people. There was not one outstretched hand. I could go on and on.....definitely a must see.
Thank you once again to Hashim our wonderful guide!

Fascinating tour
Nov 2019
Very impressed by Amaze Tours. So easy to book online, including the hotel pick-up. Car arrived promptly, and Babu was an excellent chauffeur, pointing sites out as we went. The actual tour was led by Alam who was a mine of info and made it a rtuly fascinating insight into a world I knew nothing about.

Friendly tour guide who took us through the commercial and residential area of Dharavi. Answered all the questions well in English. Knew about the customs and helped us understand Dharavi. He then took us to Dhobi Ghat where we went on another tour. Again very informative, and we got to go close to the action

Informative tour
Oct 2019 • Friends
Simple registration on the Tripadvisor website, and the tour guide Alam was super helpful. Because of some mistake on Tripadvisor website about some dress code, Alam went his way and buy us a scarf and sorted out the problem for us.

During the tour in the slum, it was a smooth tour and not a rushed one, before entering different section of the tour, Alam will stop and give us a background stories of the areas, like why there is slum, what’s the local resident reaction on the movie Slumdog Millionaire which was shot there, he also explain the changes happen in the slum and what action government taken, so it’s not just a sign seeing tour, but an educated one as well.

For the Dhobghat tour, we were given a tour inside the place and how the laundry being handled, dying colour, washing, drying and ironing. It was an interesting tour to see how the world largest open laundry operate.

Both the tour experience was simply amazing.

Again great tour!
This was the second tour we have booked. We had Danish for the second time as our guide. It’s a great tour which shows you a little peak behind the walls of the Daravi slum. It’s interesting, exciting and gives you information about the slum you didn’t know.
