Mumbai Sightseeing Tour
You decide where you want to go with this tour package!
We do, however, have a suggested route if you would like our help:
Our route focuses on religion (integral to the lives of most Indians) and you learn about Hinduism, Islam as well as Jainism. Visually, this is an impressive tour: you will admire the Haji Ali in the middle of the sea, enjoy views from Mahalaxmi Temple, get a one-of-a-kind perspective of Mumbai (and Marine Drive) from the Hanging Gardens. Dhobi Ghat, the world’s largest open-air laundry, as well as the Gandi museum are also conveniently located en route.
All sights are in the Mahalaxmi/Malabar Hill area. Malabar Hill is a 15 minute drive from Colaba. We generally use the same route on our Dharavi and Sightseeing Tour, so to save time and money you might want to do both on the same day (with a stop off for lunch).
This is a private package tour and customized for you, so you can omit or add anything to the list. Or, if you prefer, we can do a completely different route!
The world’s largest outdoor laundry! See the dhobiwallahs, or washermen, scrubbing sheets from Mumbai’s largest hospitals and hotels at this busy outdoor laundry area.
This temple is considered one of the most beautiful, intricately-decorated temples in the city. Jainism, an Indian religion, prizes peacefulness and non-violence above all.
Visit one of Mumbai’s greenest and most peaceful areas on top of Malabar Hill. You won’t believe the eye-popping view out over Marine Drive and the Arabian sea!
Surrounded by Hindu temples, this famous 12th century tank is believed to contain water with special healing powers. Rumour has it that its spring comes from the holy Ganges river.
Surrounded on all sides by water, this mosque is located at the end of a long causeway protruding into the sea. It is the tomb of Saint Haji Ali, a wealthy Muslim who renounced the world and proceeded to Mecca. It is said that he died in Mecca and the casket miraculously drifted to the spot where the mosque was later built in his honour.

I took an all day tour with Reality Tours. I highly recommend them. It would have taken me days to see what I experienced with them in one day. I was solo with a guide and driver. Traffic, distances, my lack of Hindi skills really prohibited me from doing this alone expeditiously.
Price was reasonable and my guide was completely open to showing me anything I wanted. He made excellent itinerary suggestions. He spoke English very well and was full of information. I particularly appreciated the Dharavi slums tour. It was done respectfully and provided terrific insight into local cottage industries.
We were picked up from our ship by Chetan and Prashant and each day we were shown around Mumbai. Chetan had a wealth of knowledge which he told us about. He knew everything about Mumbai past and present. He showed us all of our requests…. and then some. Prashant is an extdriver especially navigating the crowded streets of Mumbai. Wonderful tour and we HIGHLY RECOMMEND it!
We pre booked a walking tour using local transport and also a Dharavi Slum tour. By the time we got to Mumbai we had already used local transport and didn’t want to do more so we emailed and were easily able to change to a private driver and guide. What a day we had. We were collected at 9am and returned at 5.30. We were taken to all of the sights, given a lot of information about the history of buildings and people. We had a private walk in the Dharavi Slum and taken to a vegetarian restaurant for lunch. Our driver was safe and patient and our guide really knowledgeable. we had the best day and would highly recommend. Another good thing about this company is how they contribute to local communities with much of their profit being put back into local areas through education programmes.
We had a private tour from cruise terminal for visiting Mumbai in a short period of time. We had a very good day with our guide Raj, he gave us a lot of information and share is love for Mumbai and Dharavi.
You cannot go to Mumbai and not doing this tour, you will miss the most important things of what Mumbai has to offer.
We booked this tour for three of us as one of our group had been on a previous tour and rated it one his highlights across the whole of India.
So our guide Jenya had a tough billing to live up to! He was superb – tailoring the day to create a mix of different sights with some new experiences for everyone. He was very knowledgeable about all things Mumbai and a tremendous ambassador for the city and this company. Paul the driver was also charming and able to add to the tour.
We saw a whole range of sights including the flower market, viewpoints, The Haji Ali Daragh, a Jain temple, street food on the beach and the Ghandi museum.
It seems counter intuitive and even uncomfortable to have ‘slum tour’ mixed in with sightseeing, but the visit to Dharavi was the highlight of the day. The company’s clear social purpose and the way it is offering employment and reinvesting profits back into the area are accompanied by a narrative that challenges preconceptions. There are all sorts of issues that you have to confront about housing, regeneration, rights and environmental responsibilities within a community that is enterprising, connected and clearly proud.
We came across another Dhavari tour taking photos, which felt very wrong and this company have a clear policy about cameras not being allowed. Its a tour that will live long in the mind for changing your thoughts about how we live together in cities. If you want to visit Dhavari then this is the only tour you should take.
It is however great too see that a company with such purpose is able to be so much more – and the whole day was a standout experience. Now all three of us will be advocating these tours next time we are in India!
