Explore Mumbai's melting pot of history and culture while traveling the local way. Experience different modes of transport (bus / train / taxi) as you cover some of the city's main highlights.


  • Visit must-see sights in Mumbai such as CSMT, Dhobi Ghat, Dadar Flower Market
  • Navigate a ride on the suburban train, public bus, and black & yellow taxi
  • Explore Chor Bazaar -one of the largest and busiest flea markets in India
  • Learn about and see the 'dabbawalahs' (lunch box delivery system) in action
  • Travel in small groups to maximize your experience


Ride the famous suburban train, hop on a classic red bus, cruise around town in a typical black and yellow taxi and look on as millions of Mumbai’s working class head out in the morning. We will discover Mumbai beyond the typical tourist sites; we will see a number of different markets and the world famous Dabbawallahs (the workers of India’s intricate lunch delivery system). This view of the Maximum City will give you an idea of the struggles and challenges felt by the working class, as well as their unconquerable spirit.
