After meeting your guide in Colaba in the late afternoon, set off on foot through the streets and alleyways and stop first at Crawford Market.

Founded in 1871, Crawford Market sports Gothic and Romanesque features, a defining architectural style of South Mumbai. Check out displays of colorful vegetables, meats, imported cheeses, homemade chocolates and household goods. (Please note that some endangered and exotic animals are sold at Crawford Market).

Next up, get a taste of the vibrant Kalbadevi and Bhuleshwar bazaars. The sight and scents of a multitude of Indian spices make this area particularly stimulating. Stop to take it all in while sipping a complimentary cup of tea or soda before continuing on to your next destination: Mangaldas Market.

Opened in 1893, Mangaldas Market is home to hundreds of clothing vendors and tailors, and it is known to celebrated fashion designers for its fabulous fabrics.

Take a break from shopping to visit the quiet oasis of Mumbadevi Temple. Inside the temple, you might see devotees being blessed by Hindu priests and your guide explains the basics of Hinduism, the dominant religion of India.

Near the temple, head into Mumbai’s flower alley, renowned for garlands of saffron-colored marigolds and red roses. Then see Bombay Panjrapole, an animal shelter that was founded in 1834. Situated on a quiet two-acre parcel within busy Bhuleshwar market, the shelter primarily cares for hundreds of cows, which are sacred to Hindus.

After an eye-opening tour with your insightful guide, your tour ends at Madhav Baug in Bhuleshwar

This tour came alive because of the guides. I suppose we could have walked the same streets on our own, but we would have missed so much. This way, with two guides and only a few people in our party, meant that we could stop, ask questions and generally move at our pace but with knowledgeable and entertaining guides all the way. The guides even helped one of our party 'negotiate' the purchase of some local clothing. Well Done.

Our guide was nice and friendly, we enjoyed our tour with him. We would recommend the tour as a chance to see the side streets, markets, and another side of Mumbai - we went down little streets that my husband and I would have never ventured to on our own. The only draw back was that our guided didn't have an in-depth understanding of the different religions in Mumbai and the architectural history of the sites we saw. He did give us a great sense of life in modern Mumbai and how to navigate the city on foot.

A great way to see Mumbai. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable and took us to places we wouldn't have seen if he hadn't taken us. We got to see several different different markets, temples and even a cow shelter where we got to feed the cows.

Well worth the money.

We had this tour with Bipin Kumar/ reality tours. I have to tell you first of all that high percentage of the price goes to charity what they spend to improve adult education in the slums amongst other good causes. Bipin was a brilliant guide. What was outstanding that when local beggars followed us he was very respectful with them while made sure that we are not bothered and we have a lovely time. He is very knowledgable and pleasant to spend time with, his english is excellent. You are in for a treat if you book this tour, certainly won't be disappointed.

We did the Dharavi tour by this same company and it was outstanding. The Market tour is less developed. We were led quickly through markets with little help in understanding what was happening or how to buy anything. Our guide had no knowledge on judging quality or price, and talked very
