A Tour Not To Be Missed - The Dharavi Slums Tour is not to be missed. Puja made sure that our ideas of slums was completely corrected, showing the industry that was forthcoming from the smallest working areas imaginable. Our guide Puja, had a wonderful personality and was so friendly and interesting. All in all a brilliant tour.

Best slum tour guide and experience - Pooja Reddy was my tour guide! I was really impressed by her work ethic! It was truly unmatched as she spoke with confidence and ensured it was interactive. She knows how to control a big group, which just simply shows she has been giving tours for a long time. It was a group of 15 of us. She allowed us to take pictures and videos so she was patient. Pooja shared so much knowledge that I didn’t know about Mumbai previously. I really enjoyed this tour and it was a humbling experience for everyone. Thank you so much for attentiveness and professionalism during our tour. I highly recommend this tour!

Educational tour! - The tour was very educational, seeing the commercial and residential side of the Dharavi slums. Ravi was very professional and spoke with great English. The tour did feel like it dragged towards the end and you could tell the group became tired. One small thing to note is that we were under the impression that our client would be from the slum itself, but this does not take anything away from Ravi and his tour. Would recommend
