For passengers arriving on cruise ships, we offer custom tours in Mumbai that include pickup and drop from/to the docks.
In these tours, there are no hard and fast rules about what you can do. People usually just tell the guides their interests, or some specific places they want to see, and the guides fit them into the available time. We get all sorts of requests - people want to try fast food or other cuisines, culture and religion tours, bazaar walks, visits to people's homes, slum tours, train rides, bus rides, flea markets, Jewish heritage tours, shopping for specific things, tailoring, art galleries and museums...we offer a personalized tour service that accommodates all these things. In fact, you'll probably end up doing and seeing more than what you thought you could accomplish. The tours last 6-8 hours per day depending on your interest and level of tiredness.
We will pick you up from inside the docks at the point where your ship berths. We will do the necessary paperwork to enter the docks. The driver and guide will wait with a placard / signboard with your name on it.
Our guides are a group of 14 women, they who know the city intimately, and enjoy showing it to people. They speak English, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese and French. They each have 15-20 years experience in guiding, or more.
There is usually no shopping on the tour unless you expressly ask for it; there is so much to see and experience that we prefer to focus on sightseeing. But please tell the guide if you want to buy something; they know the best places and can help you.
Tours usually include lunch at a popular local café, or a thali meal. Tell the guide what cuisine you want to try and they will take you. If you have dietary restrictions, let them know. We are quite used to dealing with different types of visitors from all corners of the world, and all kinds of dietary issues, including religious requirements, allergies etc.
