Oh yes. We had watched TV in England about the Mumbai railways, and the phenonenom of 'super dense crush load', and we saw it in action. Trains arrived, releasing a sea of humanity, but we were safely watching, up on a walkway. We travelled on several trains, a bus, and several taxis, on our way to see various classic Mumbai sights. We had two guides, with one always riding shotgun, making sure we didn't get lost. Very well organised, and it did exactly what we wanted.

I was sick that day and couldn't go, but my partner had a great time and got some good photos out of it.

Fantastic tour and a great way to see this city. Tour guides were really good and very informative. We were 1 hour late getting off our cruise and the guide waited for us and we caught up with the rest of the tour. Highly recommended.

What an amazing time we had. It was like meeting a friend and being shown the sights of Mumbai. Bipin was just lovely, patient and extremely knowledgeable, we felt so special in his care, It is a must do experience, we loved it. Do not miss this trip.

An absolute essential introduction to Mumbai for anyone who wants to understand the basics of how the city works. Our guide Bipin, looked after us as if we were long lost friends. This must be the cheapest and most educative tour available.

This trip set us up virtually straight off the plane to enjoy moving around using public transport with ease and confidence. Great guides. Excellent value.

Fantastic tour, just what we wanted. Our guide, Bipin Kumar, really could not do enough to ensure we had a memorable time. This tour gave us a real insight into working Mumbai.

Really liked our guide Bibin?, who showed us how to travel around Mumbai using all the different modes of transportation available. This was really empowering later during our stay, when we dared take a train trip by ourselves and lived to tell about it! Plus, we got to see some cool areas we wouldn't have gone to on our own. Well worth it!

This is really an authentic local experience in Mumbai. I find this tour very interesting and enjoyable. The guide Bipin Kumar was excellent. I felt very safe going with him on the public transport around Mumbai and he explained very nicely on the sites we passed on the way.

We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was Pippin sorry this might not be quite right as we had so many guides on our trip I have forgotten the exact pronunciation and it was great fun going on the public transport around Mumbai. My partner is a train driver so he especially enjoyed the train trip. It was a great way to see the city from a different perspective and not jumping on and off of a tour bus! the only point it was slightly unnerving is when we needed two taxis as there were 4 on the tour and the guide was of course only with one set of people. You have to trust the taxi will take you where you need to go! Everything was fine with this but it did make me a little nervous! Overall we had a great time and the tour started at 8.30 and finished around 12.00pm. We got a taxi back from the end of the tour to our hotel which the guide helped us organise.

A very good tour with a very good guide. We saw lots of sights and enjoyed travelling by bus and train. The only thing that could have been better is if we had finished at the same point as where we started

A perfectly glance of street-life in Mumbai

I was the only tourist of the day, it might explain the lack of enthusiasm of the guide. The visit was also shortened because the dabba-wallahs were off on January 26, the Republic Day of India.
