Tour Details

If you are a first time traveller to the city and want to explore the Tourist precinct of Mumbai by foot, then this tour is specially designed for you. Covering the various tourist landmarks of Mumbai, this tour quite appropriately starts with the Gateway of India, the emblem of Mumbai tourism. This victory arch was built to welcome the British Queen to the city, and it’s only befitting to have it as our first stop. Right opposite, you will see the famous domed Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, which has hosted the likes of Barack Obama, the Beatles and a host of other celebrities in its century old lifetime.

Post this, we will walk past the Royal Mumbai Yacht Club, the Police Headquarters, the NGMA and the city museum. En-route, we will stumble upon the Kala Ghoda area, which is the art area of Mumbai. Here amidst stories of Sassoon and Jewish history, you will hear stories about the Watson Hotel – the first iron cast building in the city that hosted Mark Twain. As you walk past the Session court and the high court, you will see the Rajabai towers, the Big Ben of Mumbai. This structure built by generous donation Premchand Roychand, a Mumbai based businessman, still chimes old British tunes once every 15 minutes. At the last stop, you get to see the Dabbawalas (Shut on weekends) or the 6 sigma workers of Mumbai sending over 5, 00, 000 boxes of lunch to their rightful owners with extreme precision. Studied by consultants and business schools for the secrets of their proclaimed near-flawless efficiency, the dabbawalas have been feted by British royals (Prince Charles) and titans of industry (Richard Branson) alike. Even FedEx, which supposedly knows something about logistics, has paid them a visit.
