We had an exceptional time with our tour guide Apurva! She showed us all around Mumbai. I was laughing that 3/4 through the tour we hadn't seen any of the normal Mumbai tourist attractions and having the best time. Truly a special guide showing us a special city.

All good. Perhaps the day's plan/timings could perhaps have been proactively communicated. I guess maybe difficult given Mumbai's traffic. Guide was knowledgeable. Driver was very proficient and safe. We shortened the trip by missing a couple of sights, as the 35 degree plus temperature took its toll. Overall a concise way to see Mumbai's key sights.
