Get a insider look at slum life in Mumbai on this 3-hour walking tour. Make your way through the streets of Dharavi to witness a hidden side of urban India and get a new perspective on city life in one of India's, and the world's, largest cities. You will witness the community life that exists beyond religion and wealth.
Your guide will meet you at 9:30am outside Cafe Coffee Day restaurant near Mahim Station (West).
See why Dharavi is the heart of small-scale industry in Mumbai. Experience a wide range of activities such as recycling, pottery-making, embroidery, soap-making and leather tanning. Most of these things are created in innovative ways and in very confined spaces.
When passing through the residential spaces, you will feel the sense of community and spirit that exists in the area. People from all over India live in Dharavi, and this diversity is apparent in the temples, mosques and churches that stand here side by side. A tour through Dharavi's narrow alleys is quite an adventure, and you will leave with an enlightened sense of the purpose and determination that exists in the area.
