Traveler Tips


  • "I suggest closed shoes as the paths through the slum can be a bit dirty." See review
  • "It can definitely feel claustrophobic at times because of the narrow alleys and commercial locations; but it’s all worth looking at to understand how this corner of society isn’t cared for." See review

Really enjoyed this trip with our lovely young guide Hitesh who is a resident of Dharavi himself. Learnt the history of the huge community of Dharavi, how its progressed over the years and saw the positive side of the industry that happens here. Fantastic, authentic shop for the leather goods produced here - the makers have started their own Dharavi brand. We arrived on a festival day - lots of music and smiley children. Really like the fact that reality Tours pour money back into community projects - we saw one such in action. Young men being taught communication skills for the workplace. A great tour, would thoroughly recommend. I also think that Reality attracts like-minded individuals - we had a lovely group.

Everything was as described in the itinerary. We did not take photos but memories are still alive: narrow alleys, children playing on the common playground, men sewing brand name jeans in dark rooms, mixing colour for textil with their own hands or ironing using a machine with open gas flame inside...This tour is simply "must do" during your stay in Bombay!

I was initially apprehensive of going on a tour of Dharavi, because I was conscious of not being disruptive to residents. I was glad to hear that the tour operator puts 80% of its profits into the community projects in the area itself, with a lot of tour guides having lived and come up from Dharavi. It can definitely feel claustrophobic at times because of the narrow alleys and commercial locations; but it’s all worth looking at to understand how this corner of society isn’t cared for. We also took the Street Art was extension, which touches areas not in the main tour and is highly recommended for some stunning artwork covering entire buildings. The tour ends at their gift shop / office which I was initially iffy about, but it has genuinely cool gifts made within Dharavi from recycled materials such as paper and saris, which was quite fairly priced and went to fund their community projects too. We were never hard sold anything at any point, in fact, that didn’t even show us the souvenir area and left it to us to discover ourselves! After being hard sold again and again in India, we appreciated this a lot. Loved our guide Shailesh who did both halves of the tour and was very knowledgeable about the tour and accommodating

This was a highlight of our trip to Mumbai. The tour gives a great inside view of the slum. The tour guide went the extra mile as well. Would do all over again.
