Mumbai has lot to offer in terms of fun, Bollywood experience, monuments, buildings, royalty but if you want to see beyond it then also this city has lot to offer. After spending time in the posh southern tip of the city, around the Gateway of India and Marine Drive, it is easy to forget about 60% of the citizens of Mumbai who live in slums and Dharavi, with a population of at least half a million, probably has become the most famous one of them, especially after the success of the movie “Slumdog Millionaire”.
The tour is divided into two parts. In the first part the guide takes you to the commercial area of the slum. Especially waste recycling plant which is a big business in Dharavi and the residents and workers who scavenge materials from all over the city bring them to the little workshops in order to clean, process and recycle them, from old aluminum cans to plastic chairs. Foodstuffs like biscuits, snacks and pottery items are produced in Dharavi.
During the tour you will be directed by the local Guide who will be fluent in English and having extraordinary knowledge that you experience during the tour, the sights and sounds of Dharavi as only a local would. The Dharavi tour starts from a central location in Mumbai and takes you over the heart of the slums, teaching you its history, bringing you in interaction with its people and introducing you to its way of life & their standard of living.
