Dharavi, open for tours!
Stephen_M

I was in Mumbai on business in mid-September 2021. Dharavi is one of the areas I wanted to visit and quickly found the tour through Viator. The company was super flexible and accommodating and soon I was met at the hotel by Samir with a ride. The walking tour itself took around 2 hours. I found the industriousness and community very worthwhile and certainly remember the tour as one of the highlights of my Mumbai visit. A must-see! As an aside, Samir was frequently sidelined by short conversations with the residents that were very interested in my presence. Apparently, I was the first tourist many had seen in 18 months and, indeed, Samir said I was his first tour in that long. Bottom line is they are looking forward to to more guests in their community. Do visit, and I highly recommend Viator and Samir.

Eye opening to see the enviroment. Went with my wife and teenage daughter - mistake its 100 male and they felt very uncomfortable with the staring and comments from the locals. Aside of seeing lots of plastic being recycled not much more to see.

This was interesting and the guide was a resident of the community. I stated my concerns of walking in his community as if it were a zoo and his fellow residents were on display. He reassured me that it was not the case.

Our guide was on his phone much of the time. Began at 2pm and we were finished by just gone 3.30pm. Disappointed at the lack of depth in answering our questions. We gave up asking after a while.

Tour guide was a no-show. We gave up after after 45 minutes killing time in a sketchy neighborhood. The company had my cell phone if there was an issue or confusion on their end. The tour is run by Magical Mumbai Tours. We also used them for a different tour Private full day Mumbai sightseeing, which was also unprofessional and sub-par. You get what you pay for.

Had a very good time. Tour was one-on-one, guide was a resident of Dharavi. He took the time to explain each of the industries, and spoke excellent English. Highly recommended.
