"Nature was at its best, that feeling of walking on waterfalls nd feeling of thunderstorms were awesome, though we couldn't trek throughout the valley bcs of level of water nd couldn't do repelling still it was worth it, service was very nice nd they were really cooperative nd friendly... If you are planning to visit the place then don't visit during heavy rain days or during early morning bcs too much fogg obstructs the view "

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. "

Simply amazing! Ashwin and Kishore are really cool people to go on this trek with. Had a good time. If you can, go around full moon. For me the highlight was the Maggi that we had in the cold weather on our way up. Where we camped was also nice. Tip: Carry a steel bottle and refill it at resting points with lemonade.
It was good experience and great welcome to 2020! Organiser were frank and co-operative, didn't hesitate for anything help asked. Surrounded by good scenery, Overall good with arrangement. Can't be better view for Day 1 of decade. I would recommend if anyone planning for same. Thanks Yogesh for making day 1 Awesome.

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.
