This morning along with your English-speaking tour escort visit the Gateway of India, the principal landmark of Mumbai, was the principal port when the visitors came to India by ship. Enjoy an orientation tour of Mumbai. Drive past Victoria Terminus – the first train to steam out of Mumbai operated from here to Thane in 1853. Visit Mani Bhawan a small museum dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi. Photo-stop at Dhobhi Ghat, a unique outdoor laundry.
Today lunch will be arranged at Bombay Canteen or similar local restaurant that serves Continental cuisine.
Thereafter proceed for Dharavi slum tour. On this tour, guests will see Dharavi Slum which is located in the heart of Mumbai. Many people know Dharavi as the ‘largest slum in Asia’, but there is much more to this historic area of Mumbai than poverty. Dharavi’s industries have an annual turnover of approximately US$ 665 million. Through this tour guests experience a wide range of these activities: recycling, potterymaking, embroidery, bakery, soap factory, leather tanning, poppadom-making and many more. A tour through Dharavi’s narrow alleys is quite an adventure, and one will leave with an enlightened sense of the purpose and determination that exists in the area.
The day culminates with a visit to a Bollywood dance studio. Learn the moves & grooves of Bollywood, a fun activity!
Farewell dinner will be at a local restaurant or hotel. Followed by an optional club night/party.
