Dharavi Slum Tour : Mumbai's Hidden Heart

Welcome to the Mumbai Dharavi Slum tour. To call this as a Mumbai Dharavi Slum Tour or a slum tour in Mumbai would not be correct, as we are not going to see the slums, but going to see the industries in the slums and how people work hard with infinite enthusiasm and the zeal. It’s a real Mumbai tour and truly a special real Mumbai Day Tour.

For some people, Dharavi which is in Mumbai is the Asia's second largest "slum", home to nearly a million people. But there is surely something more to that.

Dharavi is a city within a city. Hospitals to Hotels, Schools to Movie theatres to Mobile Galleries, everything is here. Constantly super busy, hustling and bustling with various sound and activities during the day, one can find: Bakery, dyeing houses, recycling of plastics, Soap factories, Block Printing, and many other units with an economy estimated to be worth US $650 million!

Dharavi & Mumbai being of same age, the original inhabitants of both were the people from the fishing community known as ‘Kolis’

The first migrants were people from the states of Maharashtra and Gujarat. There were other settlers as well who directly migrated to the city. Most of the people were not much educated though, but were very much trained in craftsmanship and trading. You can find Muslim tanners in the leather industry.

Also other people, who had mastered their skills in sewing, stitching, tailoring etc from the Land of Hindu God Rama -Uttar Pradesh, were the pioneers of the ready-to-wear clothing Industries and trade.

You will always be accompanied by our private tour guide in Mumbai, who will explain you the entire working of the slums and will help you to interact with the locals in there. This is an extra ordinary tour and not a part of the Mumbai city tour or the Mumbai sightseeing typical tours.

Before you leave Mumbai, we want you to enrich yourself with a profound knowledge of understanding of Mumbai, its people and its fascinating rituals & traditions and the most important secret of happy smiling faces!!

Mumbai Dharavi Slum Tour is not a “slum watching tour” where you see poor people and their poverty but it’s a tour of the small scale industries & factories to show you some of their qualities which are: Unlimited energy, hardworking, determination and the get-up-and-go attitude of the people!
