An energetic night tour of Mumbai I have ever done. It was a creation of new friendships. People from different parts of the city were in the group. Though I am from Mumbai itself, I never found Mumbai this beautiful before. Many of the sights have seen before only but the night views of them were absolutely dashing. I went with my son and he was also enjoying it. Good coordination and friendly approach from everyone in the team. They gave refreshments too after the tour. Kamala Nehru Park and the view of Marine Drive from the top made my day. Short but exciting trip for two hours. Nightlife is remarkable in Mumbai.

I have been staying in Mumbai for 2 years now but never explored the markets here. So I booked this amazing market tour in Mumbai. The tour started from Regal Cinema at around 03:30 PM. It was ana amazing experience for all of us. The Archetypal-Gothic architecture was very beautiful. We also visited the Mangaldas Market or the ‘Mecca’ for fashion designers and the 100 year old flower market which known as the Flower Gallia. We also visited the Goddess Mumbadevi and Bombay Panjarpole. Our tour ended after 2 hours. All together it was a great trip and I really loved it.

I went on this amazing bicycle tour in Mumbai which was really one of the best. The booking was done instantly and it was an easy process. I along with my four friends went on this cycling tour. We started at around 06.15 AM. Oh I tell you guys mornings are always the best in Mumbai. We took some of the unknown roads which is away from the hustle and bustle. We covered some of the famous places like CST Station, Crawford Market, Mumbadevi Temple, Bombay Panjrapole etc. Altogether it was a great trip. Would love to go for it again.

It was morning time when we started pedalling and got to enjoy the morning beauty of the city that never sleeps. After arriving at the dock, we witnessed the fishermen getting busy with their catches. Visit to Bombay Panjtapole was also very exciting along with a visit to Mumba Devi Temple. After all these, we also ride around Marine Drive, Crawford Market, and several other stunning places. The 4 hours spent on cycling along with the guides and instructors was just an unforgettable experience!

This tour not only made me feel close to the people of Mumbai, but also let me know about the real state of the other side of the city. I really felt moved and sympathetic. I would like to take more such tours in various cities down the lane and see what I can do to help the needy people. Interacting with the people was a whole new experience all together. Kudos to the team for organizing this.
