If you enjoy exploring new places, try this walking tour of the ‘native’ bazaar areas of Mumbai. You’ll be fascinated by the vibrant street markets, the colourful people, the multi-cultural mix of mosques, temples and derasars, the different cuisines, and the sheer throbbing energy of the place. Mumbai’s heart lies not in its monuments, but in its bazaars. Come see for yourself.
Your guide will meet you outside the Regal Cinema in Colaba at 10am.
The tour covers Jama Masjid (meet India’s oldest Muslim community, who came here in the 6th Century), Mangaldas Cloth Market, Zaveri Bazaar (where everyone’s crazy about gold), Phool Galli (Flower Street), Mumbadevi Temple (where the city gets its name from), and the quaint Madhav Baug. The street food in the area is also very interesting.
You’ll also get an inside look at the Jain community, visit a Panjra Pole (animal shelter) – and you’ll finally figure out what this ‘sacred cow’ thing is all about!
This tour ends at Crawford Market. This is an interactive, interesting walk, so often they last longer (there are so many things to see and absorb!) You can decide to leave at your own time, we will help you get a transport.
