I loved this tour as it is very well organised and you can in around 4 hours experience a fully deep discovering of how local people move around in the centre of the city and see the main spots around. I did it alone with my guide Amruta. She was great, fun and with a great knowledge about the tour itself and the history. It is indeed a very good tour to get the essentials and more from this fascinating city. I took the time to ask Amruta about several things and she always gave me s great answer. During the trip itself, apart from visiting some of the must to see places, you experience too the different means of transportation the locals do.

I went on the Mumbai Like a Local tour on my first full day in Mumbai, and I highly recommend this experience to get an overview of the city. My guide Atul was very personable, a great person to spend half a day with if you are a solo traveler like me! I learned a lot about history, culture, and general logistics--it was a great base of beginner knowledge on which to build throughout my stay.

We did the 'local tour' with Manisha in February and had a great afternoon with her. Manisha is really professional and the tour is well planned. We saw the main tourist attractions and got many background information from Manisha. One of our highlights was the restaurant where she took us (we can recommend you to let her choose the dishes - it was all delicious). Thank you for the wonderful tour, Manisha!

Good friends had highly recommended this company to us and we were not disappointed! So comforting to be met at the cruise ship by the lovely and highly knowledgeable Ms. Meherrukh. We immediately knew we were in capable hands. And the driver was excellent too. My husband & I were truly blown away by the city of Mumbai, from the architecture, sites, culture and the people. Gandhi's house was a highlight. Our guide took us to a fabulous restaurant and we had the best Indian food I've ever tasted. Afternoon, we were taken to meet our second guide for a walk about the Dharavi slum. A young man, a student who lives there (18 yrs old), took us on an insightful walk for 1.5 hours. We felt safe and welcome the entire time. Please know this is not a gawking expedition, but an opportunity to learn and to see first hand how a vast portion of the Indian population lives. This is a community that thrives! They have a remarkable economy within the slum which was truly astonishing. I'm still processing it all nearly four weeks later but I will never, ever forget this experience. It's not for the faint of heart, I admit I stretched myself, some things were difficult to see, but I'm so glad I made the visit. To close, many thank yous to our guides! Life time of memories!!

Sidhesh was an amazing tour guide! We had so much fun on this tour. Sidhesh took us through all the main architectural attractions, but then showed us some really neat stops as well including a field with over 50 games of cricket being played. We loved taking the local transportation. The “snacks” portion was truly a meal, and I wish we’d had a smaller breakfast so we could have had more food on the tour. Sidhesh also had great tips and conversation throughout the day, and so we learned a lot about Mumbai life through him. He then gave us a bunch of recommendations for other things to do in the city, all of which were awesome. Regarding price, I usually vacation in China and Southeast Asia, so typically pay less for tours (things are just cheaper there), but this was so worth the price! Would absolutely do it again. Thank you for making our first day in India amazing!

Our guide met us near the Gateway to India as agreed but as it was Republic day and the area was full of people that was no mean feat. Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided us with full details of everywhere we went and a lot more besides. The first part of the trip was to walk around the fabulous buildings from the era of British rule before ending up near the Oval where many cricket matches were taking place. watching them whilst waiting for a bus was an added bonus. The bus trip was just as we imagined with standing room only and it took us along the Marine Drive before turning inland and dropping us at the Gandhi museum where we had some free time. A short taxi drive later and we were taken to a lovely eating house where snacks were sold and we were treated to two different Indian snacks which were really tasty and included in the price of the trip. Next after a short taxi ride we viewed the outdoor laundry and got its full detail - history and social issues. The final element was a train ride back to the Victoria Terminus - just as we imagined. Passengers hanging out of the doors - a typical Indian train ride. Fellow cruisers had also been on a train, but in the first class air conditioned carriages and all wished that they had experienced the trip that we had and we had paid only a fraction of the price.

I cannot rate the trip from Mumbai Magic highly enough. Truly magical.

Me and three friends needed a last minute activity for our one day in Mumbai after another separate tour fell through (we mistakenly agreed previously to go on a hop on/hop off tour with a cab driver with a very heavy accent and no AC and decided to pivot asap). After some quick online research, I decided to reach out to Mumbai Magic and they saved the day! They were very quick to respond and were able to accommodate us very last minute - I called them around 12:30pm for a 2pm tour time the same day and they made it happen! The guide Mani and another woman who I believe was shadowing her met us near the Gateway and we were so relieved to meet a guide so friendly and excited to show us around. A college student living and studying in Mumbai, Mani was very easy to talk to and showed such fun enthusiasm and deep knowledge of her city. We saw some some very interesting sights in a short period of time, stopped by a DELICIOUS street snack shop, and experienced taking the bus and train like a local! I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a day tour in Mumbai. Thanks Mani and Mumbai Magic!

I took the Mumbai local tour with Sidhesh. He was excellent and very personal. He took me to lunch and we modified the trip to meet up with a friend of mine in Colaba. Sidhesh gave me all the history but also just talked about his family, his job, my life, etc. It was exactly what I had hoped for in a tour.
