Midnight cycling was great fun. Rode bicycle for 4 hours. Started at 11:45 pm and finished around 4 am. Covered almost 50 kms. Started the ride from gateway of India to Worli sea face and chilled out there. Chilled out at marine drive as well. It was great fun. Met new people and made new friends. Highly recommend this. Try out this fun with friends or solo. It will be worth staying awake at night.
Tanirika Adiga Heritage Walk Mumbai
Came to Mumbai from Pune for some work and I wanted to explore the city, but didn’t really know where all to go, so I decided to book this tour online. The meet up place was easy to find, and I felt really safe as a solo traveller, and in fact made some friends along the way. Karan, our guide was so nice, and in just a short span of 2 hours he covered over 9 places with us!
"It was an amazing experience. The tour operators were very helpful and accommodating with respect to our needs. The sailboat was absolutely neat and clean. The guy doing the sailing for us was also very friendly and courteous. He had knowledge about the boat as well as knew about everything related to sailing that an average customer would want to know about. "
"For a long time I was planning to go for a trek but could not find the time. this independence day I just booked a trek to andharban trough this app. the place is wonderful I would say this is the best trek if you are a beginner. Going through dense forest through Giant waterfall and breathtaking scenery. This place Will defenately make you hungry for more of such beautiful exploration. Believe me it is lot better to go out and do something rather than just sleeping in weekends. Go Green."

My experience with Helicopter riding was fun and exciting. I had booked for the shared ride and there were two other solo riders there and we interacted during the waiting time. They were very friendly and all of us enjoyed the ride thoroughly. Thanks to the staff there for a smooth service and less waiting time.

The panoramic views of the Mumbai city and beaches and metropolitan areas were mesmerizing and lovely. The pilot was so friendly and let us enjoy the entire ride very peacefully with a lot of insights from his side. It was a once in a lifetime experience and worth the money spent on it.

Helicopter Shared Ride in Mumbai was the best part of our short visit to Mumbai. We lived in Singapore for over 10 years now and missed our city. A lot has changed here and it looks amazing from the air.
