Join us in Dharavi for the festival of colours!

Holi is one of India’s largest and most popular Hindu holidays, taking place every year between February and March. Spend the day with us learning about life in Dharavi and celebrating this colourful holiday safely and authentically with the community.

Take a few hours to learn about Dharavi on our signature tour, regroup at our community centre, and then head out to our girls’ football field to engage in Holi festivities with the community. You will be joined by our friends from the community, including children from our educational programmes and staff from Reality Tours and Reality Gives!

Safety: While Holi can be a rowdy festival, we are taking precautions to ensure everyone’s safety and comfort. Safety is our number one priority. We have been running tours in Dharavi on and around Holi for years and have never had an incident. An extra guide will be accompanying each group and we will be playing Holi on a private field surrounded by friends and partners in the community. We will also be using specially purchased natural powders.

Our mission is to improve the quality of lives in our communities. Like all of our tours, 80% of the profits fund our NGO Reality Gives and our partner NGOs. Thank you for supporting our programs by signing up for the tour!

Itinerary

Recycling Area

Metal and plastic comes from all over the world to Dharavi to be recycled. See the entire recycling process from sorting to the finished plastic pellets.

Rooftop Visit

There is nothing like the view from a Dharavi factory rooftop. The tin hutments that house so many human lives stretch on as far as you can see. You will never forget this view!

Community Centre

The Community Centre, supported by funds from the tour, provides education in English, computers and soft skills to the teenagers and young adults of Dharavi. Visitors experience what matters most to Reality Tours… the men, women and children that make this dynamic community one of the most vibrant places in Mumbai.

Holi Party

After the tour, join our friends and partners from the community, children in our various programs as well as staff from Reality Tours and Reality Gives for a music and colour filled Holi party. Rest assured that we will be using safe, all-natural Holi powders.

Meeting Point

Churchgate Station or Mahim Station

Churchgate Station:

There are four entrances to Churchgate Station, including two subways. The first photo shows the station as you approach from Colaba and where the entrance is. Once inside the station, go to the book stall about 30 metres before the platforms (as shown in the next two photos). Look for the sign saying “Wheeler.” (Photos: OneTwoThree)

We meet at the main entrance and ticket office on the West side of the station (photo 1). To check if you are in the right spot, verify that V-Jai Restaurant and Bakery is opposite and Cafe Coffee Day is diagonally opposite. (Photos: OneTwoThree)
