The best way to get under the skin of Mumbai is to meet and strike up a conversation with a true Mumbaikar. The tours developed by Bharat Gothoskar (and led by city ambassadors with regular day jobs) – city walks, food tours, sailing outings, ‘urban safaris’ by private jeep – showcase an unseen side of Mumbai in the name of awesomely coined 'heritage evangelism'.

Expect animated stories that go beyond the stereotypical images of Mumbai, and provide real insights into a city that is defined by its varied people, its multicultural ethos and rich heritage. Highly recommended.
