Mumbai is a different city by night.
As the oppressive heat of the day evaporates and gives way to cool evening breezes, teenagers, lovers, families and the elderly head out to enjoy the weather. Public seafaces like Marine Drive are crowded with Mumbaikars enjoying the rose-coloured sunset. As some people head home to sleep, others carry out religious duties or work in the markets, factories or call centres. You will also witness the calm of Banganga Tank and a Jain Temple, the chaos of CST station, and the beauty of the city lights by night.
Mumbai’s most famous and action packed beach! Watch friends and families munching away at an endless variety of Indian snacks such as bhel puri, groups of friends playing kabaddi, and couples out for a romantic sunset picnic.
Surrounded by Hindu temples, this famous 12th century tank is believed to contain water with special healing powers. This is our guides’ favourite place in Mumbai!
This temple is considered one of the most beautiful and intricately-decorated temples in the city. Jainism, an Indian religion, prizes peacefulness and non-violence above all.
Get a street view of the two billion dollar home of business tycoon Mukesh Ambani- ostentatious monstrosity or architectural masterpiece?
See one of the busiest railway stations in the country at rush hour, and the site of the terrorist attacks in November 2008. The award-winning movie “Slumdog Millionaire” was also shot here. Based on St Pancreas Station in London, this World Heritage Site is gloriously lit up in the evening, a perfect view to end the tour!
I’m so happy we did the Mumbai night tour with Reality Tours! We booked it last minute because we weren’t sure what to do on a Tuesday night, without visiting the touristy spots. We had done a 6 hour tour around the city on Sunday, but seeing Mumbai at night was a completely different experience. It was great to see the how people truly live in the city, while feeling safe and informed by our guide. Raj was our guide and not only was he very knowledgeable, but he shared a lot of personal stories to help us truly understand the culture and people of Mumbai. It was absolutely worth the money and it’s a great addition to any day tour.
