About
You're welcome to take a front or a back seat in the planning of this private tour package! We have the experience and know-how to focus on particular places or areas of personal interest, or to lay out a full itinerary for your enjoyment. Our favourite route focuses on religion (which is so important to the lives of most Indians) and you learn about Hinduism, Islam and lesser known Jainism. Visually, this is an impressive tour- you will admire the Haji Ali in the middle of the sea, enjoy views from Mahalaxmi Temple, and get a one-of-a-kind perspective of Mumbai (and Marine Drive) from the Hanging Gardens. Dhobi Ghat, the world's largest open-air laundry, as well as the Gandhi museum are also conveniently located en route. This is a private package tour and customized for you, so you can omit or add anything to the list. Or, if you prefer, we can do a completely different route, that's fine!

Excellent Tour
Jan 2020 • Solo
I took an all day tour with Reality Tours. I highly recommend them. It would have taken me days to see what I experienced with them in one day. I was solo with a guide and driver. Traffic, distances, my lack of Hindi skills really prohibited me from doing this alone expeditiously.

Price was reasonable and my guide was completely open to showing me anything I wanted. He made excellent itinerary suggestions. He spoke English very well and was full of information. I particularly appreciated the Dharavi slums tour. It was done respectfully and provided terrific insight into local cottage industries.

An eye opening tour
Jan 2020
My family, (two daughters, one son-in-law, one 12 year old granddaughter and 76 year old me) recently took the private Mumbai Sightseeing Tour - full day run by Reality Tours and Travel. We were met in the hotel lobby by our guide Balaji and had a discussion on what we would like to see and do. We met our driver and off we went. As our hotel was opposite the Gateway of India we had already crossed that off the list. Among the places we visited or saw were Crawford Market, Dhobi Gat Outdoor Laundry, Bombay University, Gandhi Museum, the Victoria Terminus and to us the highlight of the tour, the Dharavi Slum. Our guide Balaji lives there and was able to really give us insightful knowledge about the way the community lives and works (1,000,000 million people living and working within a 2.5 square kilometre area.).. The children were a particular delight with their cheeky grins and “high fives”. A percentage of the money earned through these tours is used for the improvement of life for these hardworking communities. They have schools, doctors, shops, bottled gas, electricity and water within the slum but communal toilets and washing and bathing facilities. Balaji said he was very happy there because there are many of his cousins from the same village he initially came from. Our family found the visit to be a memorable and uplifting experience. Thank you Balaji for your exceptional knowledge of all the places we visited and your charm and good humour. Also,our driver, Raj, was exceptional in getting us through (to our eyes) the chaos and noise of the Mumbai traffic so expertly. It certainly was a day to remember.

Reality Tours..... sightseeing Mumbai
Dec 2019 • Couples
We were picked up from our ship by Chetan and Prashant and each day we were shown around Mumbai. Chetan had a wealth of knowledge which he told us about. He knew everything about Mumbai past and present. He showed us all of our requests.... and then some. Prashant is an extdriver especially navigating the crowded streets of Mumbai. Wonderful tour and we HIGHLY RECOMMEND it!

Our guide was very good. The meal at lunchtime was great - a little overpriced for Mumbai but still worth it. A good day all round.

Superb - and challenging at the same time!
Feb 2019 • Friends
We booked this tour for three of us as one of our group had been on a previous tour and rated it one his highlights across the whole of India.

So our guide Jenya had a tough billing to live up to! He was superb - tailoring the day to create a mix of different sights with some new experiences for everyone. He was very knowledgeable about all things Mumbai and a tremendous ambassador for the city and this company. Paul the driver was also charming and able to add to the tour.

We saw a whole range of sights including the flower market, viewpoints, The Haji Ali Daragh, a Jain temple, street food on the beach and the Ghandi museum.

It seems counter intuitive and even uncomfortable to have 'slum tour' mixed in with sightseeing, but the visit to Dharavi was the highlight of the day. The company's clear social purpose and the way it is offering employment and reinvesting profits back into the area are accompanied by a narrative that challenges preconceptions. There are all sorts of issues that you have to confront about housing, regeneration, rights and environmental responsibilities within a community that is enterprising, connected and clearly proud.

We came across another Dhavari tour taking photos, which felt very wrong and this company have a clear policy about cameras not being allowed. Its a tour that will live long in the mind for changing your thoughts about how we live together in cities. If you want to visit Dhavari then this is the only tour you should take.

It is however great too see that a company with such purpose is able to be so much more - and the whole day was a standout experience. Now all three of us will be advocating these tours next time we are in India!

Reality Tours is Outstanding
Dec 2018 • Solo
I went on four tours with Reality Tours during my visit to Mumbai. The street food tour, bike tour, Dhavari/Private Sightseeing, and Village Tour were all excellent. My guides were all young people who readily shared their passion for Mumbai with me. I really liked Raj, my guide to for the private sightseeing and Dhavari tour and the bike tour. He is very knowledgeable and was able to customize the trip to my interests. The Village Tour with my guide Sunny was fabulous. After a ferry, bus ride, and tuktuk ride we visited a rural village south of Mumbai. I loved the school visit and lunch in a local home. Sunny is also very passionate and was a pleasure to spend the day with.

Mesmerised by Mumbai
Oct 2018 • Business
I cannot adequately describe how amazing our day was with Sonny. I, along with 5 colleagues, traveled around the city for most of the day. Sonny filled us with history, knowledge about his culture, customs, and shared a few personal tales about life in the big city. We traveled through markets and busy streets, the Gate of India, the Laundry, the Banganga Tank, and other various temples. He made us feel like one of the family. It was perfectly paced, a little walking, a little cool off time on a bus ride, more walking, etc. At no time did I feel unsafe or uncared for. I would recommend this experience to anyone. What is especially great is that part of the money for the tour goes back to education of children of the community.

Utterly unforgettable!
As a solo woman traveler, I was hesitant to venture out into Mumbai by myself. Booking a private tour with Reality Tours was the best decision I could have made. Raj, my guide for the day, showed me sights I never would have dared visit on my own. He was friendly, knowledgable, and happy to answer all of my questions about Indian culture and Mumbai. Whenever I took a particular interest in something, he took care to spend more time there or provide more detailed information. Raj also has a super power - he's able to stop Mumbai traffic with a single hand, which is no small feat! I will never forget the peaceful quiet of Bombay Panjrapole, the twists and turns and colors of all the markets, and eating pani puri at Chowpatty beach at sunset. Thank you, Raj, for being such a gracious host!
