Many unknown and unseen pictures of Mumbai was revealed during our tour. In today's world, we are so much attracted towards all the glamour and hardly bother about those faces who brings us these glamour. But while we were walking down the narrow and bustling lanes during this tour, we got to see the real picture. Everyone must try this tour and witness the very original pictures of Mumbai that are hardly brought in the focus.

You will get to see the real image of life in Dharavi and several other corners of Mumbai. The way our movies has been portraying these areas are not exactly the same and has a lot more. Kumbha Wada and Dhobi Ghat were very busy places but they had something to learn. I mean, everyone in these areas are very much aware of their roles and duties and also carried them out in a perfect way. Hats off to the people of these areas.

Overview

Trip Starting From: Mumbai

Trip Location: Mumbai

About the Activity:

  • Mumbai, the city of dreams, has plenitude to offer its visitors. Be it the most glittering industry of the country, one of the largest slums or dhobi ghats in the world, this city takes the pride of being the home to all!
  • In addition to all the offerings, this city has to offer, the ‘Dabbawala’ or the lunchbox carriers are the most amazing ones.
  • These people, without a fail, transport lunchbox to every nook and corner of the city. Whether it’s raining, thundering or the scorching sun, they accomplish their task without any mistake.
  • Within Mumbai slum tour with Dhobi Ghat and dabba wala, you will get to witness all these, interact with the people who connect Mumbai like no one else can.
  • Get picked-up from the hotel at around 09:30AM; the transporting vehicles will be decided according to the number of members in the group.
  • From the hotel, you will be driven towards the Mahim Station, from where a simple walking tour of around 2 hours will offer you the glimpses of life in the locality.
  • The 13th Compound of Dharavi, one of the commercial hubs of Mumbai, is the epicentre of plastic and metal recycling. Witness the rustling machineries melting and moulding plastics and metals into different shapes.
  • From a small button to the playful toys, these machines produce everything. While witnessing all these processes, the delicious aroma and flavour from the local bakeries and sweet shops will keep you captivated with their delicacies.
  • Other offerings to feast your eyes while in Dharavi locality include the incense stick and soap makers, the packed cyber-cafes, non-stop tailors busy in producing various commodities and the lively locals who waves at every passer-by.
  • After Mahim, it will be the time to visit the potter’s clan in Kumbha Wada. Inhabited by the potters from Gujarat, it is in this locality, you will find how these potters incite life to the clays and shape up magnificent artefacts.
  • While in here, you can also interact with these clay artists and know more about their art and culture before you head towards Dhobighat!
  • In Dhobighat, you can witness how the laundrymen washes, dyes, dries up and irons the clothes on a daily basis. It is said that 6 out 10 locals in Mumbai wears clothes that are washed in this ghat.
  • While touring around this jovial vicinity, you can also have a glimpse of the synchronised life of the dhobis and their dedication towards their work.
  • Post this, be prepared to witness one of the most amazing experiences in Mumbai. As you get introduced with the Dabbawala (lunchbox carriers), you will have a clear picture of how these people delivers the freshly prepared foods from home to different corners of the city.
  • With no proper technology or gadget, these delivery guys, regardless of the season and time, does their work wholeheartedly without a fail. It is their hard work, zeal for perfection and pure dedication that has compelled the Harvard University to do a research on them!
  • Once done with the Dabbawalas, you will be driven back to the hotel. And with you drop, this amazing local experience of Mumbai will come to an end.
