They say when in Rome do as the Romans do, same applies to Mumbai. This is an off-beat 4-hour tour where you will see Mumbai from a wide angle, a variety of places to visit with the mode of travelling will be walking and public transport. You will see the historic sites with their relevant Gothic architecture, the cultural side of Mumbai where you will see people offering their prayers and morning rituals, as well as feeding the cows as a kind gesture toward them. You will also take a local train ride, however you need not worry about the crowds as you will be traveling on non-busy routes. Visit places such as the Gateway of India, Flower Market, Dhobighat and CST train station. It's like serving Mumbai on a plate.

You will be visiting Dhobighat from Inside and not just from Outside

Our guide, Ganesh, is very experienced (11 years' worth), speaks excellent English and is patient and flexible. He seems to be prepared to answer questions on all manner of subjects from the architecture and history (to be expected) to the local and not-so-local foods, to the types of birds and trees we met along the way. This is also a comprehensive overview of the railway system that is the heart of the city. We hopped on and off trains going in all directions after starting off enjoying a quiet bus-ride. We felt intrigued by the various information offered so unassumingly and entertainingly. Thoroughly recommended! We would certainly contact Mystical Mumbai and Ganesh again next time we're in Mumbai for further exploration.

This trip was exactly as advertised. We were met promptly by Ganesh, our guide, outside the Regal cinema. He was a very informative guide who made the tour thoroughly enjoyable. Travelling on public transport was easy with him there to lead and buy tickets and the train journeys we took were not too busy - no fear of having to push or hang on. Great!

Very good guide, reasonable price. Enjoyed the experience of going on a bus and 2 local trains, and seeing local sites. Tour was one on one. Tour was on Sunday so we didn't see some sites, but trains were much less crowded. Overall highly recommended. Guide was careful to give me directions to my next tour.
