A pleasant walk in this magical part of the city

The Colaba area is home to many historical buildings—the best way to visit is by walking and enjoying the breathtaking array of architecture all along the streets. We will walk along the main sights of this area, starting at Regal Cinema, followed by Gateway of India, passing by a local market. We will meander through the quiet lanes of Kala Ghoda and Fort, taking time to interact with locals and enjoy traditional snacks. This tour ensures that you will not only see major landmarks, but also that you will explore lesser known areas not found in guidebooks—all thanks to your proud Mumbaikar guide.

Combine this tour with a Dharavi tour to see the many different sides to Mumbai. 


Gateway of India

Drawing on Hindu and Islamic architectural styles, the gateway of India sits on the waterfront of Southern Mumbai, and since 1924 was the first thing visitors to the city would see when arriving by boat.

Fort Area

We’ll explore the historic architecture of Fort. Home to some of Mumbai’s oldest, and finest buildings.

Balaji Temple

We will visit this Hindu temple dedicated to the God Vishnu and witness how devotees come here to make their offerings and pray for the God.

Oval Maidan

Another ground in the middle of the city which takes its name from its oval shape. People from Mumbai come here to play all kind of sports, mainly cricket and football, but you may also see some people practice yoga, jogging or just relaxing.

Local Brunch

We will enjoy some traditional snacks with local, stop for a cup of masala chai and taste the different flavours the food of this city has to offer.

Meeting Point

Regal Cinema, Colaba

Regal Cinema, Colaba is a landmark every taxi driver should be familiar with. Your guide will meet you outside the entrance of the cinema. (Photos: One , two)

We had a great tour and enjoyed it thoroughly. He accommodated a later start which was great. Took us to all major sites & spent time explaining and answering questions. We also had an excellent chai!

It was a dull and very rainy day. I braved the weather and turned up at the Regal Cinema. I was the ONLY one, and had the advantage of a personal tour, conducted, expertly by the guide Balaji. I commend the operator for running the tour despite having just ONE customer. The tour was conducted at a leisurely pace with several short stops to seek shelter from brief squalls. Balaji is dedicated and very well informed and provided both historic information, which he has at his tongue tip, as well as personal viewpoints. I STRONGLY recommend Reality Tours and wish them well.

April is not a fantastic month to visit India; the temperatures are higher and not conducive to walking tours. However, as an introduction to both Mumbai’s older history and how to navigate the streets’ traffic, this company’s tour is affordable and well executed. My guide for the 9am tour was Balajio, who has a great handle on English and is very knowledgeable of the city’s history.

Even as a foreigner from New York, the traffic can be intimating and walking through Colaba does take adjusting. However, Balajio was fantastic in getting myself and the 2 other tourists from place to place in complete safety. I do recommend considering having a meal before you go because the brunch is not a great deal of food (buttered bread and tea), which is not to take away from the charming bakery from where it is served. The bread was exceptionally good by the way! So fresh and tasty.

Overall, I do recommend this tour as a beginner’s course into the history of Mumbai as well as a visitor’s guide to navigating the city. Additionally, you can find the guides easily outside the Regal Cinema in Colaba, a few minutes walk away from the Gate of India.
