Explore the bustling markets of South Mumbai and learn about the city’s rich history.

Mumbai's wide streets and narrow lanes are alive with activity. In front of colonial buildings, alongside temples, and everywhere in between, vendors shout from carts selling everything from colourful birds and flowers to

traditional Indian clothes and food. We'll guide you through the chaos and introduce you to Mumbai's must-see markets such as Crawford Market and Mangaldas Market as well as some lesser known ones such as Flower Alley. Along

the way we’ll also visit some of the oldest lanes in Mumbai and their most famous temples.

Testimonial

"...[I]t was easily one of the highlights of my trip to India. Mumbai's markets can be a little intimidating to the uninitiated, but Suraj made it so much fun and was really knowledgable (and hilarious!)."
