What you'll do
After a brief introduction we start our tour in a cozy aircon car by visiting VT Station now known as Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus built in 1888. As the suburban trains are the lifeline of Mumbai, I will be sharing anecdotes of how we live and commute daily. We visit the Crawford Market, this is the first Municipal Market in India built in 1869. We drive to Dhobi Ghat, place where the washermen wash the laundry for the last 150 years. Proceed to Mani Bhavan the place where Mahatma Gandhi used to live whenever he visited Mumbai between 1917-1934. Take a short walk to Khotachiwadi, a heritage village in heart of Mumbai. Visit to Pannalal Jain Temple , said to be 115 years old (optional). Drive along the Marine Drive also know as "Queen's Necklace". Time to take a break for lunch at the famous Leopold cafe started in 1871. On our way we see the fisherman's settlements, Rajabai Tower and other iconic buildings. Post lunch we visit Colaba Street Market, Hotel Taj Palace built in 1903 and Gateway of India built in 1924. During our journey I will be explaining and showing you the Dabbawalla, a unique Tiffin delivery systems. They are the treasures of Mumbai.
Namaste! Born as Mumbaikar with a passion for travel, I have been traveling my country for the past 35 years. I quit my job as a Banker solely to pursue my zest for travel, do painting and play music. With a passion for my city and my country and deep desire to meet and interact with fellow citizens, I can show you places that a normal traveler can't find or move around such as, the fisherman's settlements, Kotachiwadi etc. I have a craving for culture, tradition, history and with my knowledge of 8 languages of India, I can not just be your perfect Host but a great friend too. I offer free pick-up and drop from any place situated within Mumbai. By joining the Tour a small amount of your contribution goes to Orphan Street Children, Old Age Home, Food for Hungry, Education of Children, Health related problems and such other needs.
