This was an interesting and comfortable tour exploring the various industries in the 3rd largest slum in the world. Pottery, paint cans, cardboard, leather...the list goes on for these industrious 1M people living in one square mile area. The guide, Nick, lives there and uses the funds from your tour for university tuition and, with his brother, Shaleish, has founded a company and they teach children computer skills after their regular school day. Well worth your time. I advise you have them meet you wherever you are for the transfers.

This is something totally different! Not your standard tour as it gets into the heart of the slum and the great people that live and work there. Defo recommended!

This tour is a real eye opener. I expected poor beggars but was surprised to find an industrious neighborhood of hard working people. They are poor but have dignity and work hard. Not a single person asked me for a handout or accosted me in any way. All the kids were smiling and seemed happy. Our very well spoken tour guide took us on a quick paced tour where we saw the recycling business first hand as well as hide tanning and residential areas. It changes the way you think when you hear the word slum. This is a must see if you visit Mumbai.

We really enjoyed this small group tour (2 people). It guides you through the small alleys of the slum across its commercial and residential part. Part of the tour proceeds go to the local school children in Dharavi. We would highly recommend this group tour to anyone who visits Mumbai and is curious about the work ethic and community of the city.
