A walk through the palm-fringed beaches, lofty green Western Ghats and Sahyadris, UNESCO heritage sites, and cities will give you an intimate experience to the local culture and history. It is indeed the only way to soak in every moment of the place and thoroughly enjoy every monument, every location and every anecdote in a way that neither car nor bus tourism allows. Walking tours are the oldest way to explore a place and they give you, a more in-depth view of the place. Not only is it a good way of touring but also a healthy way, and definitely the most environmentally friendly. So slow down and discover the magic of Maharashtra at your own leisurely pace.

 

Maharashtra is a multifaceted land with rocky Sahyadris and the Western Ghats, whistling winds of forests and wildlife sanctuaries, historical forts and palaces, roaring mighty rivers and mysterious yet colorful life under the Arabian Sea. A walking tour in Maharashtra will lead to many authentic encounters and experiences with the locals. Maharashtra is an expansive canvas with outstanding beauty and tranquillity. The land boasts of its mysticism, geographical splendor and wonderful cultural practices which are best discovered on foot. The story of Maharashtra is a teller’s paradise and each of these stories is best discovered on foot so put on your shoes and take a walk through history, architecture, food, culture and see the story of Maharashtra come alive.

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.

Mumbai is a city of dreams. Many people come here to fulfill their dreams of becoming something. Some of the dreams get fulfilled while others remain in the eyes only. The people who are in the second category often do not return and stay back. Dharavi is one such place in Mumbai, which is full of these kinds of people. It s one of the largest slums of Asia and also the heart of Mumbai. Many people who visit Mumbai, often want to see this place. Thus a special walking trip is arranged to this place. I enjoyed this trip thoroughly as I got to know more about their lifestyle. I suggest this trip to everyone.

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!

Dharavi is a witness to many unfulfilled dreams. Mumbai is said to welcome anyone who comes to the city with eyes full of dreams. But, destiny is not with everyone. People who do not taste success and yet want to stay back in Mumbai, often choose Dharavi as their place. It s one of the largest slums of Asia and also the heart of Mumbai. How can I miss a trip to Dharavi? I suggest everyone to visit this place.

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.
