Well organised local experience!
, Mar 2020
Great to have the option to go inside Dhobi Ghat, not just look from the top. This really took the tour to another level and walking inside was super interesting. It was also great to have the guide take us on multiple trains, really enjoyed riding the trains! Flower market was great too, we watched the skilled craftsmen making the garlands, fascinating! As the dabba wallas were not working that day, we visited a cow shelter instead. Again something never to be seen anywhere else but India and great opportunity to learn about the holy status of cows (but not bulls!).
Great Tour.

Very nice and informative guide. He took time to answer all our questions. He then advised us on other things to do whilst in Mumbai. The tour itself was great. Overall a wonderful experience.

It was interesting and enjoyable. I enjoyed the ride on the train to the flower market and on the return saw the real "lunch bucket" deliveries.
Fascinating and comprehensive - much covered in a short time

Our guide, Ganesh, is very experienced (11 years' worth), speaks excellent English and is patient and flexible. He seems to be prepared to answer questions on all manner of subjects from the architecture and history (to be expected) to the local and not-so-local foods, to the types of birds and trees we met along the way. This is also a comprehensive overview of the railway system that is the heart of the city. We hopped on and off trains going in all directions after starting off enjoying a quiet bus-ride. We felt intrigued by the various information offered so unassumingly and entertainingly. Thoroughly recommended! We would certainly contact Mystical Mumbai and Ganesh again next time we're in Mumbai for further exploration.
Great tour, great guide

Ganesh was a fantastic guide for this tour: calm, knowledgeable and entertaining. All the sights were interesting and thought-provoking. As a woman travelling alone, I felt very safe at all times. This is a great opportunity to see some of the real Mumbai.

This trip was exactly as advertised. We were met promptly by Ganesh, our guide, outside the Regal cinema. He was a very informative guide who made the tour thoroughly enjoyable. Travelling on public transport was easy with him there to lead and buy tickets and the train journeys we took were not too busy - no fear of having to push or hang on. Great!

Very good guide, reasonable price. Enjoyed the experience of going on a bus and 2 local trains, and seeing local sites. Tour was one on one. Tour was on Sunday so we didn't see some sites, but trains were much less crowded. Overall highly recommended. Guide was careful to give me directions to my next tour.
