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.
One of the city’s largest wholesale fruit, vegetable, meat market— and the first building in India to get electricity!
The largest indoor wholesale textile market in Mumbai where locals buy clothing materials for special occasions such as weddings and Diwali. India’s most famous fashion designers purchase cloth for their creations here!
This is the historic Hindu temple that is the namesake of Mumbai. If you’re up for it, receive prasad: blessings from Hindu priests. We’ll take a break from the busy markets and visit inside.
A small side lane that over the years transformed into a full-fledged flower market. Flowers have been sold here for nearly 100 years!
Nestled away in the heart of the city, Bombay Panjrapole is a sanctuary for the welfare of more than 350 cows. The cow is considered sacred by Hindus; to increase their karma, people will come to the shelter to feed the cows.
Visiting Mumbai for a few days. Been here before and did all the big tourist attractions then. We wanted to explore more of the local areas and markets this time. This tour did not disappoint! Chetan, our lovely, and very knowledgable young man, took us around the streets, markets and a few temples in the area. He gave us a running commentary on points of interest and areas we passed by. He told us some of the history of Mumbai and was full of facts. He even help me buy a sari for a friend. I am sure if I had gone myself it would have cost a lot more! The tour we just long enough, and at a good pace for us, in our late 50s. Would recommend this to all ages.
A really excellent tour hosted by knowledgeable guide with a great sense of humour. It was our first visit to Mumbai ( but not to India) and we really enjoyed being shown the local markets. Being with a guide means that you go to areas that you would not necessarily explore on your own ( indeed you might not necessarily find them!) and you have recourse to their knowledge and experience in being able to engage in conversation with the stall holders that you would not do if you were on your own. If you wish to make a purchase they can help you in recommending a realistic price without necessarily depriving the stall holders of their livelihood. The temple and cow sanctuary were of limited interest to us but an added a certain raison d’être to the tour.
Excellent guide Nano gave a lively tour. A good variety of markets at short distance. Interesting temple and amazing cow sanctuary. Three hours well spent.
Huge busy market that would have been too much to negotiate on my own. We saw a couple of temples, the food section, fabric, jewelry, flowers, cookware area, and even tried some food. The cow sanctuary was wonderful and we got to feed cows and buffalos. Highly recommend.
In a group of 5 persons we were guided through the buzzing city. Janna, our knowledgeable and experienced guide, took us on this tour that addresses all your senses. We hopped on a bus, saw colourful textiles, smelled delicious spices and fruits, tasted chai, visited a temple, fed cows in a sanctuary throughout the buzzing city. I also welcome the idea of Reality Tours to reinvest their profit in the local community. An unforgettable tour i highly recommend.
