The Mumbai by Dawn Tour

Recommended by Nigella Lawson & Nat Geo Traveller!

Overview

Experience a side of Mumbai that few visitors get the chance to see with this early-morning tour of the city. You’ll wake up early in time to see a fish auction, a flower market, and a vegetable market set up all along both sides of a bridge, all before most people even crawl out of bed!

Have you ever thought about where your food comes from or how that newspaper reaches your hotel room?
This 4-hour tour gives you an insight into how trade works in Mumbai and the city’s life that begins at dawn. The emphasis on fresh food in Mumbai makes mornings so important in terms of trade.
Drive to different marketplaces to see the business traders go about their daily routines. Your first interaction will be with a newspaper vendor and then you walk across the street to the fruit, flowers, and vegetable wholesalers who are surrounded by men and women bargaining for fresh supplies for the day ahead.
If you are still sleepy – the next stop is bound to wake you up, the smell of fish! The Sassoon docks are an incredible experience. It is the city’s first wet dock and the only one open to the public. You will also take a small distance train ride and at the end of the tour, you will attend Morning Prayer in one of the famous before being dropped back off at your accommodation.

Tour Highlights:

1. Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus: Possibly the most architecturally stunning building in India, Victoria Terminus Railway Station, now CST, sees a record of six hundred and sixty thousand footfalls daily, making it the busiest station in Mumbai. At dawn, the CST station also serves as the city’s largest newspaper sorting area.

2. Sassoon Dock: Travelers understand the life of the Koli fisherfolk (the original inhabitants of Mumbai) and also witness the arrival and grading of 50 tonnes of fish. They also witness a one-of-its-kind fish auction of the famous Bombay Duck.

3. Dadar Market: Witness the early morning color and fragrance of this market.

4. Dhobi Ghat: Every day, thousands of dhobis (washermen) scrub, flog, wash, and bleach clothes on rows of open concrete wash pens. More than 7000 dhobis wash more than 1 lakh clothes every single day. This includes everything from hotel and hospital linens to clothes from neighborhood laundries.

Banganga Walkeshwar Walking Tour

Take a Best of Mumbai’s exclusive Malabar Hill, at the northern end of Back Bay, Banganga Tank is a sacred oasis where it feels like time has stood still for centuries. The tank is a contrasting microcosm of the fast-paced city and one which many locals aren’t even familiar with. This is understandable, as the secluded Banganga Tank isn’t somewhere that can be randomly passed by. 

Our Friendly well experienced English Speaking Guide who is Born & Rise up there and still lives at Banganga Residence.

Visiting Banganga Tank provides an exceptional opportunity to submerge yourself in the history of the city, and learn about how it evolved from seven sparsely populated islands to the bustling metropolis it is today.

Bandra Walking Tour

Let’s take a step back in time to the days of yorn when what we know now as the grand city of Mumbai, was originally a set of 7 islands; each with its own unique tales.

Amongst these islands, the island of Salsette was by far the most nondescript. Inhabited by the indigenous Koli fishing communities, Salsette was a far cry from the present-day cultural melting pot Bandra. Though what continues to intrigue both natives and non-natives is the continued community endeavor to maintain the delicate cultural balance which exists in the suburb today . Many put this down to the perpetual Western influence from the Portuguese Jesuit priests given sole ownership of Bandra, Sion, and Wadala in the 16th century. For the duration of the walk, we will take you on a mission to discover the hidden heritage treasures which the Western and native forefathers left behind.

In 1534, the island of Salsette of which Bandra was a part, came under the Portuguese rule. Brother Manual Gomes, a Portuguese missionary, also known as the apostle of Salsette, arrived soon after. In subsequent years, he managed to convert several locals, also laying the foundation of about 8 churches in the area.

Bandra Walk is often referred to as the “Queen of the Suburbs” in Mumbai. The lure of international influences and liberal attitudes has drawn droves of celebrities, models, musicians, hipsters, and ex-pats to this multi-faceted neighborhood. In turn, a steady stream of stylish new restaurants, bars, and boutiques has opened to cater to their cosmopolitan lifestyle. Bandra West incorporates both the neighborhood’s history and current trends. An ideal walking tour for those who want to Explore Bandra’s Portuguese past – from forts and churches to Indo-Portuguese Catholic villages – along with glimpses of history from other periods as well.

Highlights:

  • St.Andrews Church – St. Andrew’s Church is one of the oldest churches in Mumbai. It was originally built by Portuguese Jesuits in 1575. It stands on the seashore of the Bandra suburb of Mumbai and was the only church there till the first quarter of the 17th century.
  • The Historic Villages – The Bandra of yesteryear was a tiny fishing village inhabited by Kolis (fishermen) and farmers. It was acquired by the British East India Company while the rest of Bombay belonged to the Portuguese.
  • Ranwar Village – Ranwar is the original of the 24 pakhadis, or villages, that made up Bandra. When the Britishers took Bombay away from the Portuguese in 1661, they did not obtain control immediately.
  • Chimbai – Unlike its fortunate brother Ranwar, this village is a far cry from the development or the artsy scene Bandra is famous for. Although it is in the vicinity of Bandstand with its posh bungalows and high-rise buildings, this village is unkempt and uncared for. The few original inhabitants of Bandra or Mumbai in general, the Koli community (Chimbaikars) can be still found here.
  • Trace Bandra’s Heritage – One of the defining characteristics of Bandra West is its pervasive Portuguese heritage. Bandra was settled by the Portuguese in 1534 when it was a simple fishing village, and it remained part of their territory even after the Bombay Islands were transferred to the British in 1661. During their occupation of the area, the Portuguese built many churches and converted thousands of locals to Catholicism.
  • Basilica of Our Lady of the Mount – The Basilica of Our Lady of the Mount, more commonly known as Mount Mary Church, is a Roman Catholic Basilica located in Bandra, Mumbai The feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary is celebrated here on the first Sunday after 8 September, the birthday of the Virgin Mary
  • Visit Bandra Fort and Bandstand – Tucked away on the tip of Bandra West are the remains of a 17th-century fort that was built by the Portuguese as a watchtower. It was strategically located to look out over Mahim Bay but now provides an excellent vantage point for viewing the landmark Bandra-Worli Sea Link bridge.

Details:

  • Tour cost for INR 1000/- Per Person with a Guide who is born up and rises up in Bandra. you will definitely enjoy this experience.
  • Meeting point: We will meet at St.Andrews Church and end the tour at Land’s End.

Dabbawala Tour

Dabbawala, Dhobi Ghat & Slum Tour with Local Train Ride ( Best Tour in Mumbai to do )

Meet The Dabbawalas of Mumbai!

For anyone who has ever been to Mumbai, the Dabbawalas are a special class of people who everyone knows! For the uninitiated though – Who is a Dabbawalla? 
The word “dabbawala” in Hindi when literally translated, means “one who carries a box”. “Dabba” means a box (usually a cylindrical tin or aluminum container). The closest meaning of the dabbawala in English would be the “lunch box delivery man”
Each day throughout the city of Mumbai, 5,000 of the dabbawalas deliver some 130,000 dabbas to offices throughout the metropolis. In the nearly 120 years of this service, the dabbawalas’ approach has remained consistent: a semi-literate workforce (the dabbawalas) pick up the filled dabbas from the households that prepare them and deliver the boxes to the requisite offices; they then retrieve the empty dabbas from these delivery points and returned them to the originating households, in order to begin the process again the next day. Roughly 260,000 transactions are completed within 6 hours each day, 6 days a week, 51 weeks a year, and operating at a quality level comparable to Six Sigma processes. Moreover, this operational excellence is accomplished in the absence of technology, such as computers or even cell phones. 
 Stories – like the remarkable one that the Dabbawalas have, inspire teams to relook at their own paradigms with fresh new eyes.

See the real Hero of Mumbai.

>Dhobi Ghat ( Open Air-Laundry )

(Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghat) is a well-known open-air laundromat in Mumbai, India. The washers, locally known as Dhobis, work in the open to wash the clothes from Mumbai’s hotels and hospitals. There are rows of open-air concrete wash pens, each fitted with its own flogging stone. Called the world’s largest outdoor laundry, Dhobi Ghat is a very popular attraction among foreign tourists.
The word Dhobi Ghat is used all over India to refer to any place where many washers are present. It is located next to Mahalaxmi railway station on the Western Railway’s Saat Rasta roundabout. It can be easily seen from the flyover bridge of Mahalaxmi station.
In 2013, World Records India and World Amazing Records honored World Record Certificate to Dhobi Kalyan.

>Why Dharavi is the heart of Mumbai? ( Slum Tour )

Dharavi slum was founded in 1882 during the British Raj yet remains to be an iconic destination for city lovers.
