Danny Boyle gave us a peek into Mumbai’s slums with Slumdog Millionaire, but to get a real experience of what life in a slum is, one can definitely go for this tour.
The whole purpose of this tour is to show how contrasting the lifestyles of people are in Mumbai. This city has place for everyone, right from people living in high rises to slum dwellers who are equally happy to live in shanties and mingle with their neighbors.
Mumbai is known as the city of dreams providing job opportunities for everyone willing to settle here. Contrary to belief that Mumbai’s slum dwellers are poor people, the story is a lot more different. Most of these people have well secured jobs and their simple houses have all basic amenities as well. Workshops in Slums
The major slums have workshops from where quality goods such as leather goods find their way in major shops all over the world.
You can also find small scale industries making clay pots, embroidery items, bakery products and papad (poppadum) which find their way to the local market.
The Tour includes:-
- Air Conditioned Car
- Professional English speaking guide.
- Visit to Dharavi Slum.
- Different Workshops in Dharavi.
- Shopping for leather products (optional).
