I did a solo tour and was guided by Retro who did an excellent job taking me to all the sights and explaining their significance. The tour operator made sure I was ok by calling me at the start of the tour and the end to ensure that I felt safe and was happy with the guide. Overall it was a great experience and I got to see the main sights of Mumbai in one day. I highly recommend this tour for solo travellers, families and groups of friends.”

I had a great experience on this tour! I am a female traveling solo for business and was a little nervous about booking a tour of Mumbai online, but I am so glad I did. After booking through Viator, the tour company contacted me by whats app and confirmed the date and location. Sanya, my tour guide, picked me up on time at my hotel and we spent the day touring the sites. She was so pleasant, friendly, knowledgeable and informative. The car was clean and air conditioned with a separate driver. A delicious Indian lunch was included. You can book this tour with confidence!”

Had a lovely day discovering Mumbai! We visited Our Lady of the Mount Basilica, Marine Drive, Mani Bhavan Gandhi Museum, Antilia and more. Thank you for welcoming us to your city, Sonja, and for customizing the city tour to meet our interests. You are a gem, and Mumbai is a treasure!”

A lovely tour guide, Sanya with much knowledge concerning Mumbai from the North, Central to Bombay City. We truly enjoyed the day, Sunday was very busy, but we were still able to see all the sights even with the traffic. Really enjoyed seeing the Taj Mahal Tower hotel. This was the hotel attacked in November 2008 and has been magnificently restored to its splendor. Lunch was at the Cafe Metro and was some of the best if not the best food, which we have eaten since being in India. This was a diamond found in the hay stack!”

Our guide Siddhartha Sarkar was very knowledgeable, warm and friendly person. He had true Mumbai spirit which allowed us the see the city through a Mumbaikars eyes.
The visit to Leopold Cafe for lunch was the highlight of the trip, where he recommended Keema pav, chicken biryani and garlic chicken kebab, which were all very delicious.”

This tour was run by Best of Bollywood tours and Rahul's wife Sanya gave us a fabulous tour of the city. The communication from Rahul was extremely reassuring ahead of the tour sometimes you hear nothing and wonder if they will actually show! but he kept us informed at all points. Sanya was very friendly and knowledgable about Mumbai and told us so much about life not only in Mumbai, but also in India. She reassured us and made us feel safe when we were petrified of the Mumbai traffic! Lunch was included which was not expected and she took us to a lovely restaurant where we had the best curry we've ever had! She was an extremely attentive host. We enjoyed this tour so much that we re-booked for next day for Sanya to take us to Elephanta Islands. Again another fantastic day- she made our time in Mumbai really memorable. She even went out of her way on the 2nd day to take me shopping for a Sari at no notice!. Highly recommended!”

This tour and company is amazing! We had one full day in Mumbai so wanted to explore as much as possible. Rahil did not disappoint - he is very honest and showed us all of the sights, this day and tour was one of the highlights of our trip. We made a new friend while visiting, this is a must do!”

As a single female I had a bit of fear about taking a private tour but wanted an “authentic” experience. Whilst the car wasn’t pretty from the outside it was comfortable with air-con. Pro driving through the chaotic Mumbai traffic got us to all the highlights safely with fun and great food thrown in”

I found this trip through Viatour, and chose it because of all the positive reviews there are more on TripAdvisor too, all fantastic!. I made the right decision! Within a few hours of booking I got a personal confirmation from my guide on Whatsapp, informing me of the pickup arrangements and timings etc. Asking if I had any specific interests he could incorporate into the tour. Fab!
He picked me up on time, drove us to the best places in town and even took me for lunch at an authentic Indian restaurant with great food! Even though I was tired from work the day before, he customised the tour to my tastes i.e. as little rushing around as possible! and was very accommodating. I only wish I was as friendly and talkative as him the whole time! He is a fab guide, and a passionate Mumbai-lover. I especially enjoyed the opportunity to ask him some more controversial questions about Indian politics, the workings of India as a country and the mindset of the people, and he provided honest, candid personal answers that gave me a deeper-than-expected insight into how such a populous country functions. I came away with a lot more than I bargained for and I would certainly recommend the tour, the price and the whole experience. Mumbai is a busy city, and I felt like I'd seen it all by the time we finished! Thank you again for a great day, and I appreciate your patience despite my jet lag!”

Rahil was great. Kept in touch via text to confirm dates and to let me know he was running slightly late on the day. Made a point of meeting me inside the lobby of the hotel, as well as escorting me back into the lobby at the conclusion of the tour. As a business traveller with very little time to do sightseeing, this was a great way to see some of the highlights of Mumbai as well as learn some of it's history. Would definitely recommend.”

Great tour to see the most interesting sites of the city. It's not too long adn well-balanced. The guide put in a lot of effort to tailor the tour to my own personal wishes. Even on a rainy monsoon day there were still plenty of oportunities to get out of the car and experiences the sights and sounds. What I greatly appreciated about this tour is that there weren't any kind of commercial visits to e.g. carpet wavers, gemstone factories etc. If ever I had a wish they took me to a decent store where people weren't pushy at all and where the product was genuine and of high quality.”

I had a great experience doing this private city tour of Mumbai. The guide Rahil and driver were on time picking me up at the hotel. The guide was knowledgeable and always gave me great information about Mumbai and Maharashtra. I would recommend this tour to any solo women tourists. I always felt comfortable and take care of. The guide was kind and changed the program to accommodate some particular requests I had-- like taking me to buy tea and sweets. It was a great tour!”

I found Rahil's private tour of Mumbai on Viator his company is called World of Bollywood. Since I was a single woman in Mumbai for a business trip, I needed a tour company that would accept a single person most required a minimum of 2 people and that was well rated so that I would feel comfortable traveling with them all day. Rahil was on time with a much appreciated air conditioned car and a driver who drove quite calmly. When Rahil arrived, I asked if we could modify the tour to include a trip to Kanheri caves. He was completely accommodating, and we immediately set off there were additional fees, 8, for entrance to the park and the caves which Rahil explained up front and I was fine with. After touring the caves, we had a delicious Indian meal and then set off to see the sights of Mumbai. Rahil was knowledgeable about the history of the sites and interesting to talk to he has acted in a number of TV shows and he showed me several clips while we drove from site to site!. Would recommend Rahil as a tour guide!”

It was my first time to Mumbai for a business trip. I Had spared one day to see Mumbai and I didn't regret it.
The owner of the tour operator in Mumbai Mr. Rahil Khan was my guide as he came in the morning on time with an air-conditioned car and a very polite driver.
The tour lasted for almost 9 hours in which Rahil has shown me all the land marks of Mumbai with full details but in a very relaxing environment.
I highly recommend this tour”

I was on a business trip and had only the Sunday available. So I was really looking forward to a tour that was well organized and authentic. Rahil the owner of World of Bollywood was excellent. He was very accommodating when there was a potential change to my schedule. Something not easily found. The tour was excellent and gave me a good flavor of the city. This was topped up by a wonderful local lunch that Rahil so generously hosted. I am planning my next trip and will use Rahil and his team and refer colleagues. Thank you Rahil for a wonderful day.”

This tour could not have been better for our group! I found the World of Bollywood Tour through Viator one day before our arrival to Mumbai by cruise. After booking the tour through Viator, I touched base with Rahil, the owner of World of Bollywood, the evening before, to confirm our pick-up location and time.
Everything from beginning to end was absolutely perfect! Rahil greeted me outside of the cruise terminal on the morning of our tour. Our remaining group members arrived shortly thereafter. The shuttle was comfortable, spacious and blissfully air-conditioned. We experienced an impressive amount of Mumbai in a relatively short amount of time. Our wonderfully informative and insightful guide, Sid, answered all of our questions and was enthusiastic throughout the day.
Sid, Rahil, and our driver, Ishmael, graciously accommodated our preferences throughout the tour. We stopped for lunch which was included in the tour and the food was remarkable! Everything was perfection!
Thank you, gents, for a wonderful experience of Mumbai! We are all truly grateful for our time with you!”
