I took the day tour of all the local highlights with Rameez as the guide and Ayyappan as the driver. This was a great team who worked well together. Rameez was extremely knowledgeable about all of the sites and took some great photos of me as I was traveling alone that day. He also took me to a great place for some street food when I told him I was hungry. Ayyappan was a wonderful driver who navigated the crazy streets of Mumbai with ease. If I’m ever back in Mumbai and take another tour, I will definitely request these two .

We were in Mumbai for 2 days from a cruise. The information provided before arrival was very good. We were met by our guide Danesh. He was excellent and very informative. Our group of 4 in a taxi did everything and more provided by the cruise. In fact the company provided guides for the cruise tour . Our experience was very personal, we could ask as many questions as we wanted. Please do not hesitate in using this company .

A group of 18 adults took the 1 day tour with Amaze Tours thru Viator. We booked this tour prior to our Dubai/India cruise. Our tour guide Ahad was friendly; knowledgeable and responsible. The tour started from the cruise terminal at 9am to 4pm in the afternoon.
it was a full day itinerary, Ahad took us to the largest train station; Marine Road ; the richest/wealthy area to the largest Open Laundry; the poorest area. Amazing experience.

We went on this tour from our hostel , with an excellent guide called Dinesh, we went to a lovely cathedral , the famous Victoria Train station , the pick up point where the 'lunch box ' system operates,( what a brilliant idea) and the famous Dharavi slum, and saw the plastic factory ,the place where the leather is treated and dyed and the residential area where we went to a house and has a delious lunch. All this was dine using public transport.
We want to thank Dinesh again for giving us so much information on these places and making sure everyone got on the trains and buses he certainly knows his stuff and is professional but very friendly and a wonderful person too. It's a well recommended tour as the slum is full of tiny walkways. We finally ended our tour to the biggest out door laundry and once again Dinesh was full of information about it ,very interesting to see.

If you have only time for one tour, this is it. It brings you to all the sights and sounds... and smell... of Mumbai. Our guide, Alam, was fantastic. Given that it was a Sunday and not having to deal with the traffic that plagues Mumbai during the weekday, we were brought to many more places that was on the original itinerary. We were even brought to a smaller dhoby ghat where we got to take photos with one of the dhobies. This is the trip that you need to do when in Mumbai.
